Larry Moore: Moving Beyond My Comfort Zone

Love Never Fails

When I became a Seventh-day Adventist at 12 years old, I was a little shy about sharing my faith. We hadn’t practiced “sharing our faith” before so the concept was new and foreign to me. Now, we attended evangelistic meetings at our local church and I remember part of our responsibilities was passing out Bible study cards from the Voice of Prophecy Bible Study. My dad was the lay activities leader at the church, so I attended all of the evangelistic meetings and helped pass out literature by going door-to-door in the surrounding neighborhoods. 

This was all way out of my comfort zone, but I learned to push through it and you know what? The good Lord blessed! I lived through it and God used my feeble efforts to tell the world of Jesus’s Second Coming.  As you challenge yourself to step out of your comfort zone and share with others the wonderful things Jesus has done in your life, remember these two verses: 2 Timothy 1:7, “For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline,” and Joshua 1:9, “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” I pray these words encourage you along your journey. May the Lord strengthen you and guide you as you allow the Holy Spirit to use you as an instrument of faith.
