Think of the Seeker - Not Yourself

When sharing the Gospel with others, remember, the message you are sharing is not about you or your masterful or professional manner in which you present the Good News to others — it is all about the content of what you are sharing and whether or not the individual is actually listening or not. Yeshua the Messiah said, "If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear." (Mark 4:23, ESV)

Never allow your presentation of Biblical truths to focus on you as an individual, but rather on the one you are sharing it with and how the truths within God's Word can help them in this lifetime and in the next. "All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right." (2 Timothy 3:16, New Living Translation)

Never be prideful or boast of your accomplishments as a missionary, speaker or writer. "When pride comes, then comes dishonor, But with the humble is wisdom." "Everyone who is proud in heart is an abomination to [Yahweh]; assuredly, he will not be unpunished." (Proverbs 11:2; 16:5, New American Standard Bible)

People are hurting, people are confused and lost in a dark world and feel they have no hope, and if they even believe in the existence of God, many feel that He has abandoned them. They do not care how familiar you are with the Biblical languages or how many passages you can quote from memory. They are seeking answers and they want help in a simple message in which they can easily understand and relate to right now. Those who are listening have an interest in themselves and how they can receive help and encouragement. They need a meaningful message that can be applied to their current life situation and it is the responsibility of Messiah's brethren to give them the truth and comfort they need (Matthew 28:19, 20).

"Blessed is God the Father of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, the Father of mercy and the God of all comfort, He who comforts us in all our afflictions that we also can comfort those who are in all our afflictions, with that comfort by which we are comforted from God." (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4, Aramaic Bible in Plain English)

Never forget that it is the content of the message you are sharing and not your special talents that is the most important thing people will be focusing on.
