Do You Want to Give Your Faith Away?

“Wisdom calls aloud outside; she raises her voice in the open squares. She cries out in the chief concourses, at the openings of the gates in the city she speaks her words.”

Proverbs 1:20-21

The invitation of wisdom is a public invitation, not just to a chosen few. God loves all people and wisdom speaks to all people. The voice of the Bible is for whosoever will come. Some people join secret societies to gain certain knowledge—things other people are not supposed to know. But if it’s so good, you ought to give it away to everybody. Jesus said He had done nothing in secret (John 18:20). Friend, if it’s wonderful and good, it ought to be public and for anyone. I’m so grateful that the Lord God loves the whole wide world.

Do you know what the Bible says? In Matthew 10:27, Jesus said, “Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops.” Let the whole world know that Jesus saves and that the invitation of wisdom is a public invitation. We hear people say, “keep the faith.” Not only should you keep it, but you also ought to give it away. As far as I’m concerned, if you don’t want to give it away, you ought to give it up, because what you have is not real. You’ll never convince me that you know the real joy of the Lord Jesus if you do not want to share it.

  • Why must our faith be one we long to give away?
  • How has God “given away” the truth about Himself? How has that changed your life?

ACTION POINT

Select a specific person to whom you want to give the faith away. Take action toward sharing the truth of the Gospel with that person.
