Reasons Why People Don't Share Their Faith
4. Complacency / Lack of Passion
Let's just be frank about it. There are those people who do not share their faith because the are spiritually lazy.

The truth of the matter is that they are apathetic in their spiritual life. They go through the motions of faith without the passion for living for Jesus.

PRAYER THOUGHT: Dear God, Thank you for your love, grace, and mercy. You are holy and righteous. You deserve my best efforts. Help me not to be selfish and always be coming to you with my hand out. But rather help me to be loving and generous in sharing the gift of salvation with others. Give me the opportunity this week to share your word. In Jesus' name, AMEN!
