Should we share our testimony with people who don’t want to hear about Jesus?

At this point Festus interrupted Paul’s defense. “You are out of your mind, Paul!” he shouted. “Your great learning is driving you insane.”
 “I am not insane, most excellent Festus,” Paul replied. “What I am saying is true and reasonable. The king is familiar with these things, and I can speak freely to him. I am convinced that none of this has escaped his notice, because it was not done in a corner. King Agrippa, do you believe the prophets? I know you do.”
Then Agrippa said to Paul, “Do you think that in such a short time you can persuade me to be a Christian?”
Paul replied, “Short time or long—I pray to God that not only you but all who are listening to me today may become what I am, except for these chains.” Acts 26:24-29
            Paul shared his testimony with Agrippa who thought Paul was out of his mind.  He laughed at Paul’s attempts to convince him about the Christian life.  Paul responded by saying whether the king responded now or later, he hoped the words he spoke planted a seed that the king would eventually respond to.
            That’s all we can do when we share our testimony.  Plant the seed and let the Holy Spirit do his work.  They may not want to hear, but they need to hear.  Don’t be annoying, but pray for the right moment when God wants you to tell others about him.
