One of the scariest was when I was shot in the head with a BBgun. A kid down the street thought it would be funny to point the gun even at me and friend at close range. He said and thought it was unloaded. Bang and the rest is history. For many Christians gospel witnessing might as well be as life threatening as my moment with a bb gun. Yet let us have courage since the Bible does give a blessing should something go wrong (in our preception) while evangelising. Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Obviously this isn’t a sure way into heaven like the Jewish exorcists in Acts 19 or those who preach Christ from envy and strife Phil 1:15. We do want to hear well done good and faithful servant.
Let’s cover six people we should witness.
1) Share with your family. It is likely that you have family members unsaved. Whether this is you brother, sister, mom, dad, wife, children they are an opportunity to share your faith.
2) Coworkers. Most of have people we rub elbows with every day. As time and occurance permit, sharing the truth is worth the time and effort.
3) Your Boss. This is a little different because it might raise a challenge to find a good and contextual moment to share the gospel. But finding opportunities to witness to a boss can be challenging. Using events outside of work or when small talk is brought up to stir it toward heaven. How was your weekend. Great, did this, did that and went to church can be a great opportunity to share the gospel with them.
4) Your neighbors. Many people don’t know their neighbors. But it is a great opportunity to talk with your neighbors in passing. Another might be that if you got save to go bring the gospel to them. Setting aside a day and time to do that would be great.
5) Your Friends. Their are people that you call friends. It is likely that some of those people do not know Christ and they are opporunity to give the gospel to. Invite them to a cup of coffee, over for dinner, or an outing with the chance to share the truth.
6) Strangers. This is can be intimidating but grab someone because together you are likely follow through. Now there are two types of places you can do this. One would be door-to-door and the other in public places. The benefit with door-to-door is that after knocking you are left explaining why you are there. Public witnessing can be tough but I approach the same way I approach door to door evangelism. The reason I am interrupting you.
Making a point to think and pray to share the gospel will help you follow through. Make time to share your faith. Read up on the 6 Indispensible Elements of Evangelism.
