Sharing the Gospel

Personally, I have always known who God is, but I have not acted on that as I should. Until very recently, I viewed sharing the gospel as a long, drawn-out process. I thought I needed to slowly and carefully work people towards the gospel. In the back of my mind I have always thought, "what if he's not ready, maybe I'll only discourage him from the gospel." Recently, I realized the power of the gospel.
I had been teaching a friend of mine for years. I used apologetics, I used wisdom, but I never used God. I was encouraged to call this friend and when I did, I brought God to my friend, I used no apologetics, no facts, only God. He came to Christ over the phone.
I'm not telling this story in an attempt to puff myself up, or make myself seem more important than I truly am, but rather to show an example of the power of God. Through this, I have learned on a personal level to always count on the power of my LORD and Saviour to whom I owe everything.
(I would like to give a special thanks to Dare To Share for changing me)
