Sharing Out of Guilt


Some people ask the question, "Is it wrong that I share my faith out of a motive of guilt? Shouldn't I simply want to please God?" The answer is that we should have a pure motive for reaching the lost, but sometimes we don't. Think of a firefighter. The person he climbs a ladder to rescue couldn't care less about his motive for saving them from being burned to death by the terrifying flames. He may be up there because he wants to please his fire chief, or he may be there because he felt guilty snoozing in the fire station when people needed to be rescued. Why he's there is of little consequence. All that matters is the fact that he is there. So, don't get caught up in why you should be reaching out to the lost. Just do it. There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
