How to get over your fear of sharing Jesus

Overcoming the fear of sharing one’s faith, particularly in the context of sharing Jesus, can be a personal and challenging process.
Here are some suggestions that may help:

  • Take time to reflect on why sharing Jesus is important to you. Consider the positive impact it can have on others’ lives and the fulfillment it may bring to your own spiritual journey. Understanding and reaffirming your motivations can provide a sense of purpose and conviction.

  • Deepen your knowledge and understanding of Jesus’ teachings, the message of your faith, and its relevance to people’s lives. The more you understand and can articulate your beliefs, the more confident you may become in sharing them with others. Study the scriptures, engage in discussions, and seek out resources that can enhance your understanding.

  • Approach conversations with a mindset of listening and empathy. Seek to understand others’ perspectives, concerns, and questions before sharing your own beliefs. This approach can foster trust, respect, and open dialogue, making it easier to share Jesus in a non-confrontational and compassionate manner.

  • Share your own experiences and how your faith in Jesus has positively impacted your life. Authenticity and vulnerability can make your message more relatable and resonate with others. People are often drawn to personal stories that demonstrate transformation, hope, and love.

  • Surround yourself with a supportive community of like-minded individuals who can encourage and pray for you as you step out in sharing Jesus. Having accountability partners can help you stay motivated, overcome fears, and provide feedback and guidance along the way.

  • Begin by sharing your faith with people you feel comfortable with, such as close friends, family members, or small groups. Practice sharing your beliefs in a genuine and authentic manner. As you gain confidence, gradually expand your circle and engage in conversations with a wider range of people.

  • Understand that not everyone will be receptive to your message, and that’s okay. Respect others’ boundaries and their freedom to hold different beliefs. Accept that rejection is a possibility, but don’t let it discourage you. Each conversation is an opportunity for growth, learning, and planting seeds that may bear fruit in the future.

Remember sharing Jesus is ultimately about expressing love, compassion, and hope. Let your actions, attitudes, and words reflect the teachings of Jesus, and trust that the impact of your sharing may extend far beyond what you can see or anticipate.


Spend time in prayer, studying the Bible, and seeking a deeper understanding of His teachings and love. As you grow closer to Him, your fear will diminish, and your passion for sharing His message will increase.


One of the most powerful ways to share Jesus is by sharing your personal testimony. Reflect on your own experiences of encountering Jesus and the impact He has had on your life. Be authentic and vulnerable, expressing how your relationship with Him has brought transformation, hope, and purpose.


Ask God to soften their hearts, open their minds, and create opportunities for meaningful conversations. Praying for others helps shift the focus from your fears to God’s power and work in their lives.
