Jesus told the people not to tell anyone about him, but the more he told them, the more they proclaimed it. Most of us have the opposite problem – we find it hard to tell people about Jesus. But we don’t have to persuade people, or feel that we’ve failed if people aren’t persuaded. Persuading in the Holy Spirit’s job – all we have to do is be a witness – to tell people what we’ve seen and heard.
