I never fail to be surprised by how passionately my friends can talk about things that I find, if I’m brutally honest, boring at times! Don’t get me wrong, I love seeing their faces light up as they discuss the new episode of ‘Love Island’ or show me their latest TikTok video. It’s wonderful to be passionate, to be filled with joy as we chat about things close to our hearts, but I wonder as Christians, do we speak about Jesus with the same passion that we talk about our favourite programmes or make up trends? How much easier is it to share with someone our love of our favourite series, rather than sharing our love of our Saviour?

When we look at the book of Acts in the Bible, we repeatedly see the boldness of the early church in proclaiming the love of Jesus to each and every person that they met. They relentlessly shared the gospel with a fierce passion. Their hearts had been set ablaze with a deep desire to know Jesus and to make Him known. But they were also bold. Their faith appeared so naturally infectious, the way Peter speaks to a lame beggar saying “silver and gold I do not have but what I do have, I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk” (Acts 3:6) and the man is healed! Peter chose to be bold.

Even though many young people aren’t in our churches, surprisingly 36% of all young people express a desire to learn about God and are open to exploring faith for themselves. We here at Youth for Christ believe wholeheartedly that local churches are best positioned to reach unchurched young people in their communities. Our goal is to restore that BOLDNESS in sharing Jesus through local initiatives and tailor-made resources. Supporting churches in recruiting, developing, and resourcing volunteers to thrive in their roles.

It seems today as if Jesus is whispering to you, as He has always been whispering to you, “be ready”. He wants you to be ready for the opportunities that He’s going to give you, to be ready to be bold for Him. The Father isn’t asking us to do the impossible on our own, He is inviting us to come alongside what He is already doing. He is already at work; we just need to be bold and join in.
