Sharing the Love of God: How to not be afraid of people when doing so

Ever been fearful about sharing your faith to others? Sharing your faith naturally, can be easy and sometimes hard. I know from my personal experience of sharing what Jesus asks me to say has been difficult at times because I am afraid of criticism or persecution of faith. Either or, I have learned not to be fearful in the process because God will be glorified.

Acts 2:1-13 NIV
[1] When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. [2] Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. [3] They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. [4] All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. [5] Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. [6] When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard their own language being spoken. [7] Utterly amazed, they asked: “Aren't all these who are speaking Galileans? [8] Then how is it that each of us hears them in our native language? [9] Parthians, Medes and Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, [10] Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene; visitors from Rome [11] (both Jews and converts to Judaism); Cretans and Arabs---we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues!” [12] Amazed and perplexed, they asked one another, “What does this mean?” [13] Some, however, made fun of them and said, “They have had too much wine.”

So, go out there and share your faith and don't be afraid of those who want to kill or hurt your body because they cannot touch your soul. Rather, fear God who can destroy both body and soul in Hell! Matthew 10:28
