Matthew 10 – ‘I don’t know what to say’ syndrome

Good morning y’all.  We looking at Matthew 10.

I am focusing today’s blog on verse 19 and 20

Be blessed 🙂

“When you are arrested, don’t worry about how to respond or what to say. God will give you the right words at the right time”.
(Matthew 10:19 NLT)

“For it is not you who will be speaking—it will be the Spirit of your Father speaking through you”. (Matthew 10:20 NLT)

Don’t worry about what to say to people about Jesus. I know I worry about what to say to colleagues when opportunity arises. I worry about saying the wrong thing; or them not understanding my point; or them asking a difficult question that I don’t have an answer for.

But this verse gives the solution. It tells not to worry for God will give us what to say. Ours is to go and tell the people and when we get there Jesus is promising to fill our mouth with the right words to say to them.

Now we can’t hide behind the “I don’t know what to say” syndrome when it comes to evangelism. We are called to go out and preach the good news. We just need to take the first step of going and God will fill our mouths.

Verse 20 further explains it is not us who will be speaking but God’s Spirit will speak through us.

It’s time to get up and start carrying out the great commission. There are too many lost souls out there: people are looking for answers and we know that answer can only be found in Jesus. They are desperate for Love and God is Love. It’s time to start sharing this message of love and let the Holy Spirit work through us. The Kingdom of God is near. God’s desire is not that all should perish but that they come to the knowledge of His saving grace.

Jesus sent out the 12 and in the same way He is sending us out to the world to be salt and light. To proclaim the good news.

Today lets look for opportunities to tell someone about the love of God.

Lets ask for a heart of compassion for the lost souls.

Thanks for joining today.
