Don’t Be Discouraged

Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.

Do you ever get discouraged from sharing your faith? I want to encourage you today: you never know what God is doing. Walter’s from Austria and has been discipling Christians there in how to share the Gospel. One day, he went out asking two questions, “Do you know for sure that you’ll be with God in Heaven?” and “If God were to ask you, ‘Why should I let you into my Heaven, what would you say?” He asked those questions all over the city but didn’t have anyone respond. Walter returned home discouraged. But a week later, he gets a call from a friend who tells him that a young woman he asked those questions to was stirred to find out the answers. So, she went to the only Christian couple she knew, and they led her to Jesus. And now she joined the Church! God is changing hearts. So let’s not be discouraged but let’s be faithful to share the Gospel. For resources to help you share your faith, visit our website at That’s
