As Christians, we called of God to be gentle as lambs, yet be like lions roaring the truth of an extraordinary God. We are told to, “Declare God’s glory among the nations, His marvelous deeds among all peoples. Tell of all His wonderful acts. Tell of the power of God’s awesome works.” We are told to roar about God; we really are born to roar.
Are you ready to share what God has done for you? If someone asked, “How do you know Jesus is real?” How would you answer?
Once I prayed and asked God to show me the missed opportunities to share Him with others in one day—the open doors of conversation, when it would have been easy to say something about God. It was one of the most painful experiences I’ve ever had.
He said to me:
“Oops, you missed that one. “
“Oh, there goes another opportunity…”
“You could have said …”
“She needed that word from you, that you didn’t give her…”
So now, I try to stay ahead of the opportunities, being more aware of those moments when I can share something about God, His Word, His love, mercy, forgiveness, the power of prayer, or a personal experience I have had with God. Times when I can roar about God.
People need to see the reality of God in other lives. They might not go to church or read the Bible, but they will listen to someone share how they know God is real. We have Testimony Workshops to help Christians put together their story for God’s glory. It is also the reason we have the radio show, A Time to Dream, to help Christians share their story with the world through short wave radio and the Internet. It is why we publish Stories of Roaring Faith, which is a great collection of testimonies.
What are you doing to Roar? Can Roaring Lambs help you be better prepared to give the reason for the hope that you have?
One way to roar is to write a Guest Blog for Roaring Lambs, 500 words or less, containing at least one Scripture, roaring about God. Do it now and email us at info@RoaringLambs.org
