Day 71: To Speak His Name (Deuteronomy 17-19; Mark 14:1-25)

I go to a public university, in Connecticut, and the majority of my peers have pretty hostile views of the Christian faith. It isn’t easy to talk about my faith and I found myself thinking I can just show people Jesus through my actions instead of talking about Him, because what would I even say? I can’t convince them.

When I reflect on this it’s easy for me to see where I went wrong. Telling people about Jesus isn’t about me, or even the person I am talking to. Telling people about Jesus is about the one who died for me, the one who washed my sins away. Speaking His name is about sharing His love for humanity.

Day 71

In today’s passage from Mark, Jesus preforms the first Lord’s Supper. As an Anglican, my church celebrates the Lord’s Supper every week and for me it is a reminder that Jesus died on the cross for my sins. It’s a reminder of His overwhelming love for me and it’s a reminder of where my strength comes from.

It can be hard to know where to start when telling someone about Jesus, but for me this passage speaks volumes about who Jesus really is and why He is so important.

Do you have trouble talking about Jesus to people who are not Christians?

What has helped you be bold when you share about your faith with others?

One thought on “Day 71: To Speak His Name (Deuteronomy 17-19; Mark 14:1-25)

  1. For me, it is easy to give into the idea that I do not have the proper words to say or explain my heart to others, but I have found for me, when I share how God has shown Himself to me in my early years as a child and throughout my teenage year into adulthood, I am able to share how He has carried me by His grace through times when I failed to deserve His care, and how He has molded me into the woman I am today. He has not only saved me through His precious Son Jesus, but has shown me His mercy and love. Through hard times, my Lord has strengthened my faith and made me strong enough to stand alone in the Winter of my life when my husband went Home to be with Jesus March 2015. He is the One who I hang on to when I have no one else it seems, He is the One who always comes through for me.

    So in this way, it is easy for me to share my faith and certainty of my Father/God with others. Thank you, and may God continue to bless you in your journey also and this blog, so full of God’s wisdom : )
