Leading from values so others will walk passionately with God to grow and bear fruit.
Like many people, I have never found witnessing to come naturally and easily. By nature I'm a shy, reserved person; initiating conversations with strangers is sometimes difficult for me. Even sharing the greatest news ever announced - that "God loved the world so much that He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life" (John 3:16) - is not always easy for me.
So it might seem incongruous that God called a shy young man to launch an evangelistic ministry on the campus of UCLA, a ministry which would become Campus Crusade for Christ International. Witnessing, and training laypeople to witness, is our primary calling. I don't even know if evangelism is my spiritual gift.
What I do know is that God has made it crystal clear in His Word that every Christian is to "go and make disciples of all the nations, ... teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you..." (Matthew 28:19-20).
I've tried to be obedient to this command, and God has honored my obedience. God has transformed my personal witness from one of shy hesitancy to one of confident initiative.
If you're thinking that "it may work for someone else, but not for me," you're not alone. But if He can do it for me, He can do it for you, too.

Look at the beauty and intricacies in your corner of the Earth; marvel at the genius of the design. How comforting it is to know that the God of creation is concerned with my well-being.
Some might give their lives for good people, but God sent His Son to die for sinners, including the ones who put that Son on the cross. No higher demonstration of love is possible.
