BOOR December 2012: The silence of the lambs

I read a lot of great stuff online last December.  But the best one has been on my computer background ever since I read it:
The silence of the lambs, by Steve Addison
Most of us have been taught that the most effective way to share the gospel is to say nothing. The conventional wisdom is we need to “earn the right to speak.”
The problem is, it just doesn’t work.
It’s the good news about Jesus that saves, not the perfection of your life. Read the gospels and read Acts. Do you really think Jesus trained his disciples to be silent? What did the risen Lord commission Paul to do? What did he do?
How many people will hear the gospel today through your ministry? I don’t mean just through you. I’m thinking of those you’re training, especially new believers, to share their story and to share Jesus’ story.
How are you connecting? How is the gospel spreading, not just through you, but through the people you train?
