Hebrews 12:1-3; Colossians 4:2-6.

When Jesus called his first disciples, he invited them to “Follow me”. Peter was invited by his brother, Andrew, to come and meet Jesus. There will always be someone who God is prompting us to talk to about Jesus – it’s reckoned that 70% of regular church goers will know immediately who that is when you ask them.

How is it, then, that we so often seem to find it hard to personally invite people we know to come and find out more about Jesus? Perhaps we’re put off by the fear of being rejected. Maybe we’re worried about whether we will be “successful”, but Jesus never said, “Well done my good and successful servant”. But he did say, “Well done my good and faithful servant” (Matthew 25:21). Our faithfulness to keep “Talking Jesus” will motivate us to invite people to meet Jesus.
