5 Reasons Why Far Too Many Christians Don’t Share the Gospel

5. Lack of Proximity

Go and make disciples of all nations. (Matthew 28:19)

If we have a Christian family, work with a lot of Christians, go to Christian Bible studies, and hang out with only Christian friends, we may have, what I’ve come to call a proximity problem. Jesus was accused again and again of being a friend of sinners (Matthew 11:19). He went to sinner parties, talked to sinful people, hung out with the least and the lost…and reached many of them with His shocking message of grace.

That’s one of the reasons I do a lot of work in coffee shops. It gives me proximity to the unreached. That’s one of the reasons I strike up conversations with random strangers at the airport. That’s one of the reasons I ask servers at restaurants if there’s anything we can pray about for them when we pray before our meal. That’s one of the reasons I go out monthly with my daughter and her group of friends to reach into the city with the hope of Christ on Go Share Day.

You too must find your proximity place. Where can you be in proximity to the yet-to-be-rescued so you can begin to build a relationship and share the hope of Jesus with them? Maybe it’s at work or the gym or a coffee shop. Wherever it is, find your place and start sharing the Good News.

Which of these reasons have kept you from sharing the Gospel? Identify it, and then crucify it.
