WALTHAM, MA—After claiming he was deeply convicted of the wrongness of his actions, local Christian Michael Gunter fell to his knees in a moment of heartfelt prayer and repented for all the times he has made people feel awkward while attempting to spread the good news of Jesus Christ in his community.
The man confessed he has committed the “great sin” of making people feel awkward for a minute or two as he declares the gospel that has the power to change their eternity, and promised God that he would not evangelize as much going forward, “or at least not be so weird about it.”
“Lord, I’m just so sorry that I created a few seconds of awkwardness by offering to share your life-changing gospel with people,” he said, as tears streamed down his face. “I’ve wasted so many years!” Gunter then vowed to God that he would never make anyone feel awkward while evangelizing ever again, “just like Jesus says in the Great Commission.”
Not sure what to do with his newfound time now that he won’t be evangelizing, Gunter has stated he’s thinking about taking up a new sport or hobby that will make him look “like less of a Jesus freak” to the unchurched in his area.
Sharing Jesus can be difficult. But in his new book Good News for a Change: How to Talk to Anyone about Jesus, author Matt Mikalatos helps you learn how to share the gospel in any situation. You can help people discover why Jesus is good news for them, and it doesn't have to be awkward.
