How I'm a Selfish Coward

How can I be so selfish by being scared of what people will think of me, when I'd be sharing something so great? I have never shared the gospel to anyone. How can I be so very selfish? I'll tell you the truth I'm a selfish coward, and that truth scares me so bad.

"But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.” ~Revelation 21:8
Reread that again and pay special attention to the beginning and end of the verse. Done? Did you notice that the cowardly are included with the faithless, the detestable, murderers, idolaters and ect... That's why I'm scared, my cowardice could get me to hell. I've heard that selflessness can lead to the bravest acts, such as taking a bullet from someone else. That's what I want to do. No, I'm not saying I want to die so someone else could live, although I would like to think I could do that. What I'm meaning is I want to be selfless - of course I could never fully be selfless, I think we know there's only one who is truly selfless. But I want to try to be selfless, and with that I'd get bravery to speak the truth about God. I love God and I want him to shine through me.

Lord, Please show me where to go, tell me the words to speak, and give me the love to share. Help me to be selfless God. ~Deanna
