When someone becomes inquisitive over an article of clothing, it’s evidence that wearing is sharing. Many people who have received Christ and live after the Father’s heart often find that evangelical witnessing is much like making cold calls. There are some frequent excuses that come when the topic of witnessing is brought discussed.
- Not many people feel like they can do it
- Not many feel qualified
- Striking up a conversation is not a strong suit
- Feels like you’re imposing or soliciting
- Overall sense of not wanting to bother anybody
All the other excuses spawn for a few reasons. The discomfort of reaching beyond one’s comfort zone, lack of confidence, or maybe someone is truly just plain bad at starting up conversations. All are valid excuses. Lots of people aren’t comfortable with evangelical witnessing. Some people just flat out don’t want to be preachy.Even less people want to be preached to anyways. However, most people have questions about life, death, afterlife, etc.. Sometimes all they need is an excuse to ask.
A Solution – Wear it
Hence the title of this page, Wearing is Sharing! One thing you can do that doesn’t tip the apple cart is to wear your faith. There’s no need to bash people in the head with the bible if others are asking you about what you’re wearing. However, I’d advise that you have your testimony well established in you, so when you have a chance to share it with someone, you can.
Back somewhere in the early 90’s, when I was much younger both in Christ and in age, I always had that hesitation(for lack of a better way to say it) concerning sharing my faith with others. Eventually I wound up with my first Christian T-Shirt. Lord’s Gym (His Pain your Gain), and wore it around every whenever, not putting much thought into what others are reading off of my shirt.
Let me tell you, if you feel alone as a Christian, get yourself a T-shirt proclaiming your faith. I don’t know how many times someone would check out mine and tell me how cool it was and would actually introduce themselves as a brother or sister in Christ!
And sure enough, random people did stop me once and awhile to inquire about the message on my shirt. And anyone else, well, if they read it, a seed was planted & the rest is God’s business.
Back then there was no internet to order from, so I’d have to travel to the closest Bible Bookstore or Christian Gift shop at the time which was about 35 minutes away. But now it’s pretty easy to get your hands on some great Christian T-shirts or other apparel that will make your faith plain to any that have a set of eyeballs.
Use whatever is available to you to get the message of the Cross out to any willing to hear. Be it a website, clothing, apparel, jewelry, hats or simply carry around a Bible! Pray before even leaving the house for God to use you in some way for His glory. At the end of the day, God’s will be done one way or another.
Thanks for reading this page, I hope it’s encouraged you to wear it and share it. To check out some great Christian clothing and other apparel, (some of which are in the pics above) please visit Kerusso. Not only do they have a huge selection of clothing (including hats), but they’ve got other items of interest like: Gifts, Jewelry, books, etc..
Going out of your way to witness to someone may not be for you. But if you wear clothes, you can partake in the most comfortable way to shine the light of the Word in a dark and fallen world. And perhaps, Lord willing, you may find yourself leading someone to Christ because of a great message on your shirt. Wearing is sharing, the need for witnessing is great.
