We should boldly share the Scripture with others and let it speak for itself. It is not enough to search it, we must look for opportunity to share it. That was what Prof Christoff Botha did recently at the beginning of one of his lectures to MBA students. He didn’t preach, he just read James 3:13-18 and thereafter prayed: “Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic. For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.” It’s amazing that before and after praying he didn’t try to explain the Scripture he just let it speak for itself. We may have concerns about sharing Scripture to students in a classroom setting, however as long as we share it wisely, it is fine with me. Also, it is important to allow the Holy Spirit to guide you about where, when and how to share the Scripture with others.
Take the road of courage, share your faith wisely even in the face of hostility, persecution or scorn @tosynolu
