Proclaiming Jesus

Our experience with Jesus should involve a Personal Touch, Transformation, and Testimony . John writes about this,

That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life.  The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. We write this to make our joy complete. - 1 John 1:1-4
John was so excited about his personal experience with Jesus, he wanted to share it with others so they could be touched by Jesus too. John’s experience should be the typical experience of the believer, The touch of Jesus leads to transformation and a desire to share your personal testimony.
When we get a good deal at the store, we want to tell our friends about it How much more so should our experience with Jesus make us want to spread the good news 
Sometimes people are afraid to share because they feel like they won’t be able to answer every question. That’s OK, all the Lord is asking you to do is what John did: say "this is what I’ve seen and heard. Here’s how Jesus touched me, and if you’ll trust in Him He’ll touch you too." We can’t afford to be sitting on the side lines when we know what the fate of the other team will be. 
Have you suited up? Are you playing the game or simply sitting back and watching the action?
