Sharing the gospel is something many Christians know they should do, but few of us are excited about it.  On paper it makes sense, but in practice it can be hard to find the motivation necessary to get into a spiritual conversation with a friend or co-worker.  But the Bible doesn't leave us there.  In 2 Corinthians 5, Paul explains his motivations for sharing the gospel, that prompt him to endure even through severe hardship and rejection.  What's more, those motivations keep him loving, sincere, and genuine when he shares with others.  These motivations aren't just for Paul—they are for all Christians as we encounter God's glory and enjoy his goodness.

Application Questions

1. What are some things that make it difficult for you to share the gospel with others? Does anything motivate you to push through those difficulties?

2. Do you regularly think about what comes after this life? How does that affect the way you perceive others and their need for the gospel?

3. Do you regularly think about the love Christ has for you? How does that affect the way you perceive others and their need for the gospel?

4. What can you do practically to get to know the glory of God in such a way that you are motivated to share him with others?
