Leading others to Christ

02 April 2018
‘Commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands.’

It’s not always easy being a Christian. We can often look at how other people are living their lives, with values and morals that conflict with what the Bible teaches, and wonder how we can possibly make a difference. But with God’s help, we can make a positive impact. Here are a few ideas: 1) Keep your own heart and mind focused on God. Make time every day to read and study the Bible. Pray regularly, and thank Him for the things He’s provided you with. 2) Find a church (if you’re not at one already) and get involved with missions and outreach they’re doing. Let others see that you’re really living out what you believe in. 3) If people ask you about God or about your faith, be sensitive to their questions. Take time to answer their questions in ways they’ll understand and relate to. And be honest in your answers. We don’t have all the answers, and it’s okay to say ‘I don’t know’ if you really don’t know the answer to something – people will respect you more for being honest with them. You could even try saying ‘I don’t know the answer, but I believe this because…’ 4) Trust the Holy Spirit to give you wisdom at the right time to present the gospel to others, and pray for their salvation continuously. 5) Keep in mind that it might not always be your job to get people to make that decision to follow Christ. God might be using you to sow that first seed, and it’ll actually be someone else who gets to see the end result, maybe years later. Don’t be discouraged if you think you’ve not succeeded.

 

What now?

Look out for opportunities today to tell others about God. Ask Him to make you sensitive to those opportunities.
