Work on your Gospel communication skills.

Work on your Gosepl communication skills.
.
”You’re one to talk.” I’m just getting that out there, now, for anyone who knows me. As I’ve said in the past, I like to write about things that I need to work on myself.
.
I am not perfect at any of these posts. That’s part of the reason I enjoy making them—they are personal reminders.
.
I am in a position at work where I have no choice but to remain impartial on political matters and many other situations—I’m a peacemaker. My goal is to solve conflict and reach a peaceful solution.
.
I can’t do this unless I am level headed and think outside of the box.
.
My personal opinion is this—to succeed in life; we need to have good judgment and common sense. As we work on these two things, our communication skills will be more effective, enhance our reliability with others, and we’ll have a more efficient dialogue.
.
I think of Jesus Christ and why He was so compelling to listen to. Besides the fact He is God, He spoke with absolute certainty. There was no hesitation in His message. He spoke nothing but the truth and honesty.
.
You may ask why He was crucified, and if He was so convincing, why didn’t He convince everyone of the truth?
.
There are several reasons, the most prominent being agency, but I believe He was so convincing of the truth that others were too angry. They were too afraid to do what was right, based on the ”societal consequences” that would follow if they did.
.
The truth hurts, and many individuals have a hard time accepting facts. They don’t want to hear it, even when they know it’s right.
.
Why do some members of the Church have a hard time sharing the Gospel? Fear of rejection. Fear of being shunned. Fear of losing friends or family. Fear of communication. There are numerous reasons.
.
Some people will never accept the truth, even when they know it’s true. That should never stop us from working on our communication skills. The more we try, the more we will learn about ourselves and our abilities. As we practice sharing the Gospel, we will become better communicators.
.
He will make our ”mouth like a sharp sword.” 1 Ne 21:2. Hear Him!
