Although it shames me to say it, I have a terrible fear of witnessing. I had sufferred alot of rejection from parents and so called friends when I was young. People know that I am a christian, and I will discuss it if the subject comes up, but as far as talking to strangers or flat out telling people that Jesus is the only way to salvation, I get fearful that they too will reject me. I have had people stop talking to me and wanting to be around me (one person even told me 'no one wants to be around you because they are afraid they will offend you') because of my faith. I know the bible says we will be hated etc. but how do I get over this fear? I have prayed about it often but it's still there.
