Host: Jim Schneider
Guest: Grace Mally
Grace Mally has been involved in youth discipleship ministry. She and her family have a ministry called Tomorrow’s Forefathers, with the goal of equipping families to be grounded in the Word and fruitful for Christ’s kingdom. She, along with her older siblings coauthored, ‘Making Brothers and Sisters Best Friends’. She also enjoys arranging witnessing and outreach events in her community and speaks at family conferences. Her latest book is, ‘Will Our Generation Speak? A Call to be Bold with the Gospel’.
Grace began by noting how the Bible says all of us are responsible for communicating the gospel so no one can say we don’t have the gift to share God’s Word. Nonetheless, many Christians have concerns about their part in this process. For example, someone might say…
‘I just can’t do it.’ Or maybe your response might be, ‘I don’t have the right personality for this.’ Gospel sharing is not dependent upon personality but obedience. In fact, as Grace noted, sometimes a quiet person is actually a very effective witness for the gospel because such individuals tend to listen, and are calm and natural with people.
Maybe you’ve always felt that you have to develop a friendship with each person first. This is not necessary because if you had to develop a friendship first, that would limit the number of people you can reach.
As the program continued, Grace described the concept of ‘listen but lead,’ how to overcome fear, leaving a ‘stone in the shoe,’ handling people who are less than friendly, how to stay encouraged and much more.
