Barry Meguiar’s Urgent Message to American Pastors

There is something spiritual happening deep within the culture of America today. Despite the blatantly demonic performance at the Grammys and pagan statues enshrined in New York City, there is an awakening taking place in the hearts of everyday Americans.

Many Christians never share their faith because they think it’s hard work. Many are under the impression that unless you partake in elaborate schooling, you’re not really qualified. Well, there’s good news. Barry Meguiar, the founder of Meguiar’s Car Wax, has been an outspoken Christian for many years and he’s demystifying the process of sharing your faith with others.

“There’s no greater high, there’s nothing more addictive. Once you start doing it, you’re off and running,” Meguiar says enthusiastically.

IGNITE YOUR LIFEIn his new book “Ignite Your Life,” Meguiar shares just how easy it is to witness for Jesus. I interviewed him for my “Strang Report” podcast to give you some practical tips to implement in your everyday life.

The Bible tells all of us to go into the world and preach the gospel. There is a world of people out there that don’t know Jesus and look at everything going on in the news with fear and despair. Amid that crisis, only 1% of Christians tell others about their faith. “That’s the problem,” Meguiar says.

Thankfully what has happened at the Asbury University revival and the new movie “Jesus Revolution” is blowing up across social media. “Jesus Revolution” hit number three at the box office on its opening weekend.

“It would appear there’s a sovereign move of the Holy Spirit across America and around the world. I saw one survey by Pew Research said 40% of Americans now believe we’re in the last days,” Meguiar says. If 40% of Americans believe we are in the last days they are certainly more open to hearing about eternal life.

Meguiar has been sharing his faith for 50 years and says it’s getting easier to share with people now than ever before. People are open to the gospel.

Mark 13:11 says, ” But when they arrest you and hand you over, take no thought beforehand, or premeditate what you should speak. But speak whatever is given you in that time, for it is not you who speaks, but the Holy Spirit.”

You don’t have to have a theology degree to be able to share the gospel. It is the Holy Spirit who speaks through you.

Not only does the world need to hear the gospel, but you also need to share the gospel to strengthen your own faith. Isaiah 43:10 says, “You are My witnesses, says the Lord, and My servant whom I have chosen that you may know and believe Me, and understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed, nor shall there be after Me.”

“Ignite Your Life” has a message directly for pastors as well. “You’re robbing your people. You wonder why they’re not growing, you’ve really crippled them by not telling them the one thing they’re supposed to do more than any other, share their faith and be salt and light,” Meguiar says.

Meguiar’s grandfather wasn’t a chemist, but he trusted in the Lord. In 1901 the Lord gave him a formula that we now know as Meguiar’s wax. All of us should believe in God for those kinds of miracles in our own lives.

There have also been moments in Meguiar’s life where he almost lost his company, had deaths in the family and had other hardships. In the midst of life’s greatest challenges, he’s learned to have joy in the Lord in all things.

“Nothing bad can happen to me unless God wants it to happen to me. He allows bad to come into my life, it’s not really bad, it’s good. He’s going to use it for good. So we’ve stopped saying ‘God get us out of this mess,’ we thank God when it comes,” he says.

Learn how to share your faith boldly with those around you and face life’s hardest moments with an innate trust in God, that He will be by your side directing your steps because that is His promise.
