Steven Lee suggests four obstacles to sharing our faith: namely lack of gospel knowledge, apathy, fear and lack of compassion. Thankfully he reminds us that by working together, we can over come such obstacles. The steps recommended include praying together, recalling and applying the Gospel together, ultimately proving the power of the Gospel together.

"We are people who have died to ourselves and live for Christ (Galatians 2:20). We have the profound privilege of spurring on fellow believers to love and good works that God has set before us (Hebrews 10:24Ephesians 2:10). Some of those good works will be giving verbal testimony to the grace of God in our lives and proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ to the lost."
