But I am not qualified to share the Gospel.

But I am not qualified to share the Gospel.

1 Timothy 4:12: Yet just as Timothy was not too young, or inexperienced neither are you.  The Bible does not tell us Timothy’s age, but he must have been young.  Mark, writer of one of the four Gospels, was believed to be young. David killed Goliath at very young age 1 Samuel 17. 1 Colossians 10 tells us that the Holy Spirit qualifies us.  The Holy Spirit is our guide.  I am saved and Salvation is supposed to be free not about my Good works.

Salvation is free, and you don’t have to do anything but ask Jesus to live in you.  Then what is the point of doing good works?

We do good works to grow, to become a seed sower. When we sow seeds, the Kingdom of God grows.

While Salvation is not about our good works, our spiritual growth requires exercise.  Just like our body requires exercise to stay nimble and strong, our spiritual growth requires good works to stay nimble and strong.

When we are strong, it is harder for the Evil one to come and snatch our Joy and Peace from us.  Whenever there is a black mood upon you (I am not speaking about a loved one dying, pain, and etc. I mean that mood were you feel yucky without being able to pin point an actual reason), that is from the evil one. We do good works, study, and pray, to grow. By Growing, we are able to resist the Devil.

1 Colossians 10:10-14: 

10 so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, 11 being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience,12 and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you  to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. 13 For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
