How You Can Introduce Others to Christ
In his eyes, emotions of love and thankfulness streamed down his cheeks as the young businessman exclaimed, “You must bring a lot of happiness into this world.” He had just prayed with me and confessed his faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. After a long period of search, he and his wife were excited to take the Four Spiritual Laws booklet home with them, so that he might bring his wife to Christ in turn. The words of this joyous young Christian have resurfaced in my memory time and time again: “You must bring a lot of happiness into this world” through sharing the Lord Jesus Christ with tens of thousands of students and lay people all over the world, as he said it himself.
Two Reasons Why Christians Don’t Tell Others
One of the most pervasive fallacies of the twentieth century is the belief, which is widespread among Christians, that men and women do not desire to know God. No matter where I go in the world, I am able to uncover abundant evidence that the exact opposite is true. The Holy Spirit has sparked a thirst for God in the hearts of millions of people throughout the world. I am fully convinced, based on my personal experience and extensive observation, that the vast majority of nonbelievers throughout the world are ready to receive Christ when they are properly approached with a clear and simple presentation of the gospel by a Spirit-filled witness who is accompanied by the Holy Spirit.
There are two compelling arguments in support of this.
Introducing Jesus to a Non-Believer
It is well known among Christians that they have been called (commanded) by Jesus to spread the gospel of salvation. The following instructions were his very last words to us before departing for the hereafter. These instructions are referred to as the “Great Commission.” For those of you who are like me, you’ve known them off by heart since you were a youngster. For the sake of completeness, let’s have a look at these before proceeding any further: Then Jesus appeared to them and declared, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth.” As a result, go and make disciples of all countries, baptizing them in the name of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and instructing them to follow everything I have instructed you to do in the first place.
And, without a doubt, I agree with you.
Walk like Jesus
Walking in the footsteps of Jesus indicates that your steps take you in the same directions as Jesus traveled while on earth:
- Into regularly scheduled times of worship with other Christians. The only thing your neighbors will notice is that you depart every Sunday morning and at the same time every week for Bible study and small group time
- Or for service in the community. You give of your time and talents to people in need as well as to causes that help to spread the message of the Gospel
- You stay away from sinful activities. The paths you choose will not lead you into bars, nightclubs, or movies that are not Christ-honoring, nor will they lead you into toxic relationships.
Talk like Jesus
We have four books of the Bible that contain the teachings of Jesus on various topics. We also know from reading the concluding lines of the book of John that these four volumes are only a small sampling of what he said and accomplished throughout his lifetime. There were many additional signs that Jesus did in the presence of his followers that were not documented in this book, but they were significant. However, these have been written so that you may come to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may come to have life in his name (John 1:12).
It was evident in his regular words and discussions that he is who he is. The same should be true for each and every one of us. Colossians 4:6 contains a letter written by Paul. “Encourage your conversations to be constantly full of grace and sprinkled with salt.”
- Foul language, gossip, lies, rude comments, sarcasm, hurtful remarks, words that promote division and dissension
Instead, we will choose to be encouraging, uplifting, forgiving, loving, repairing, or even just silent when the situation calls for it.
Act like Jesus
You’ve probably heard it said that actions speak louder than words. And what about the old adage, “It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it”? What do you think? It’s true that both of these assertions are correct. This past week, I was reminded of how accurate these sentiments are, but in an unpleasantly unpleasant manner. A man who has claimed to be a Christian for many years has now been revealed as a liar and con artist by authorities. For years, he had presented himself as a master artisan of a fading skill, and he had succeeded admirably.
Recently, however, it was revealed that, when displaying these goods to someone, the man had neglected to remove certain tell-tale evidence from the objects, which plainly indicated that they had been tampered with.
- Demonstrating the fruit of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness
- Self-control) in a live, breathing example
- Consider the question WWJD, and then take action. Maintain the mentality that people would rather watch a sermon than hear one. and go ahead and do it
- Don’t be ashamed of your faith or of the Gospel
- Live what you believe. Keep in mind that everything you do and say might have everlasting consequences for someone else, and that it already has eternal consequences for you.
According to Max Lucado’s book, “Just Like Jesus,” there will be a lot of genuinely pleasant individuals in hell, according to the author. To put it another way, simply being polite, doing good activities, and refraining from saying or doing unpleasant things is not enough. In order for these things to be authentic fruits of the Spirit, Jesus must be the driving force behind all you do in your life. What I’m saying is that, while sharing Jesus with an unbeliever is best began by your deeds and attitude, you must at some time explain to him or her why you are who you are—that Jesus is your LORD and Savior and he want to be their Lord and Savior as well.
- Informing them that you are praying for them and their circumstances
- Inviting them to church is a good idea. Yes, you are capable of doing the task. Bring up a favorite Bible passage with them in the course of a discussion where it will fit (or can be made to fit)
- Inform them of the ministry and service events in which you are involved and ask them to take part in them. Organize events for them to participate in at your church. Provide for any particular requirements they may have
- Give them a devotional book for those who are debating whether or not a connection with Jesus is still relevant. Preparation is key: pray for opportunities to share and the fortitude to share Jesus with those who are not Christians.

How Do I Explain Who Jesus Is to a Non-Believer?
In the Hebrew Scriptures there are over 300 prophesies regarding the Messiah, and the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ (“Christ” meaning Messiah) fulfilled each one of these prophecies. Just five of the prophesies that Jesus fulfilled are listed below: 1. Bethlehem would be the birthplace of the Messiah (Micah 5:2) 2. The Messiah would be born of a virgin, according to tradition (Isaiah 7:14) 3. The Messiah would be raised from the dead (Psalm 16:8-11) 4. The Messiah would be wounded in order to atone for our sins (Isaiah 53:5) 5.
10. Jesus: The Resurrected Lord
“For what I received, I handed on to you as the most important thing: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, and that he appeared first to Cephas, then to the Twelve.” He then appeared to almost five hundred brothers and sisters at the same time after that.” The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 15:3-6 that Jesus foretold his own death and resurrection on a number of different times.
Each of the four gospels contains a great deal of information regarding the resurrection.
The resurrection is the central theme of all of the sermons in the book of Acts. It is Christ’s death and resurrection that constitute the central message of the gospel. There is just one question that should be asked to decide whether or not someone should be considered.
11 Ways To Introduce Someone To Jesus – Without Being Pushy Or Weird
In our lives as followers of Christ, we have witnessed the enormous impact Jesus has made, and we wish the same for those in our immediate vicinity. However, we are well aware of how difficult – and unpleasant – it may be to introduce someone to Jesus. Here, we’ll take a look at how Jesus accomplishes it and take away six valuable lessons for sharing Christ with the people we care about. Every step is taken in a welcoming manner, not a forceful, awkward or strange manner.
An Awkward Conversation
Everything was going swimmingly throughout the talk. For a small treatment, I was in the office of a local expert, and this was my first time visiting the office. When she inquired as to my profession, I said that I am a pastor to persons who work in the healthcare industry. She suddenly became rigid, and icicles began to form on the ceiling above her. The talk had come to an end. She completed the surgery, faked a polite grin on her face, and then swiftly exited the room. What exactly happened?
I’ve had enough of these kind of encounters to realize that far too many individuals have had negative experiences with their religious institutions.
But even if you aren’t, you probably know someone who is.
Jesus Shows Us How To Introduce Someone To Jesus!
The solution can be discovered by looking at Jesus himself. In today’s lesson, we’ll look at Luke 5:27-32, where Jesus asks Levi (also known as Matthew) to be his disciple and then hangs out at a party with Levi’s companions. 27After then, I stepped outside and noticed a tax collector named Levi, who was sitting at the revenue booth. And he instructed him to “Follow me.” 28And he rose and followed him, abandoning everything in his wake. At the meantime, Levi hosted a lavish feast in his home, with a large group of tax collectors and other guests seated around the table with them.
31 And Jesus responded, “Those who are well do not require the services of a physician, but those who are sick do.”
7 Ways To Introduce People To Jesus
(Short disclaimer: some of my friends have had negative encounters with Christians who were forceful and ‘trying to convert’ them. That is not what I am referring about in this context. The Christians I’m talking about are those who live with integrity so that their friends get an accurate image of Jesus and have the opportunity to learn more if they so want.
1.We must know Jesus, and activelypursue God, ourselves.
At the risk of seeming trite, let me state the obvious. I’m going to share this regardless. We are unable to share something that we do not possess ourselves. We must put our faith in Jesus personally (Romans 10:9-10), and then we must endeavor to run as hard as we can after him (Philippians 2:12-14).
2.We need to move toward people whose morality is different than our own.
Levi was not the type of person you’d want your daughter to marry, and you were right to be concerned.
He was a traitor, a Jew who worked for the despised Roman authority that ruled Israel at the time by collecting exorbitant taxes from his fellow Jews. Jesus, on the other hand, does not avoid or just tolerate him. He makes a move at him (see verse 27).
3.We don’t need to focus on what’s wrong with other people.
A large number of our unbelieving friends believe that they must first clean themselves up before they can come to Jesus – or us – for help. That they must first prove themselves to be ‘good enough for God’ before he will accept them. Part of this is due to our natural predisposition, but part of the issue may be traced to the way the church has depicted God through the centuries. Though we proclaim that Jesus loves us despite our mistakes and shortcomings, our lives reflect the belief that being perfect is what important.
He initially lured Levi into a relationship with him, with the expectation that transformation would occur later, within the context of the partnership.
4.We need to go where people are, even if it’s uncomfortable.
Take note of how Jesus, immediately after inviting Levi to become his disciple (‘follow me,’) goes and hangs out with his friends at a large party Levi has thrown for him. Many of his guests, like Levi, were not exactly model citizens. They were other ‘tax collectors and sinners,’ as the Bible puts it (30), individuals who were plainly not living in accordance with God’s plan for Israel. In contrast to the religious establishment, who shunned individuals like these (see v.30) and kept their distance from them, Jesus hugged them while also realizing that they needed care (they were “sick”).
I was at a party a while back, and individuals had naturally separated themselves into groups with others who shared their interests.
5.We need to spend laid-back time with people.
It’s no coincidence that Jesus decided to attend a party. It provided him with a chance to spend quality time with Levi’s visitors in a calm and casual setting where they could truly get to know one another. However, we are apprehensive about such casual occasions since we are unsure of what may happen. Who is going to say what. What the ‘rules’ are in this situation. We’ll see if we’ll be accepted after we’re properly known. It’s simpler to merely maintain a nice distance. However, when we know that Jesus has embraced us, it gives us the confidence to put ourselves out there and reach out to others in kindness.
6.We need to display truth and grace.
The Lord, on the other hand, isn’t a forceful person. There was no bullhorn, no table, no yelling, “Repent!” He didn’t do anything like that. You should know that I’m coming back!’ On the other hand, he saw that many of Levi’s visitors were still ‘ill’ and in need of a spiritual ‘physician.’ He wished to help them. He’s a kind guy. According to the Apostle Paul, every one of us is born into a state of separation from God and in desperate need of a Savior (Romans 3:23). As a result, Jesus was always on the lookout for opportunities to welcome others into a relationship with God via faith in himself.
The need to be aggressive or persuade others into doing something they don’t want is unnecessary. However, we must recognize that others, like ourselves, are in desperate need of Jesus. This implies that we should pray to God to reveal himself to others.
7.Look around you.
We may feel the need to go on a missions trip or do something remarkable (or, even worse, embarrassing or bizarre) in order to lead others to Christ at various times. We don’t have any. Instead, we should just look about us and see who God has placed in our life, then spend time with them and allow God to work through us, just as Levi suggested. All of this is a part of the process of evangelization. He is solely responsible for the outcome. Take the pressure off – both for yourself and for the people you meet.
This is a method in which I fail more often than I succeed.
What principle from the paragraph above would be the most beneficial to you in introducing the concept?
How to Share the Gospel with Unbelievers
Consider the day you were rescued from your predicament. Maybe this happened recently, or maybe this happened a long time ago. It doesn’t matter when or how it happened; that day will always be remembered as a watershed moment. Everything changes after that day, and life never returns to normal. Did you feel a desire to share Jesus with others once you received salvation? When our lives are profoundly transformed in such a wonderful way, we either want to tell the entire world about it and enter the process naively, or we become anxious about talking about Jesus and are unsure of where to begin.

How to Share the Gospel with Others
When you hear the words “spread the gospel,” you might immediately think of the formal manner in which a Pastor delivers a sermon on Sunday. However, the reality is that each and every one of us “ordinary guys” has been charged with spreading the Good News to others. So, how do you go about sharing the Word of God with other people? It is not necessary to be an ordained preacher in order to evangelize and share the gospel with others! Sharing the gospel does require verbal communication – talking about Jesus and the tales from the Bible – but it also includes nonverbal communication – things like our demeanor and how we treat other people.
Always be prepared to provide an explanation for your faith to anyone who inquires as to the source of your optimism.
- A personal narrative or testimony
- Lending an ear to listen and encourage them
- Sharing your own personal experience or testimony Your actions and acts should be a reflection of Jesus. putting Jesus in the spotlight on social media
Share the Gospel Through Your Testimony
One of the most effective methods to share Jesus with others is to offer your own personal testimony of salvation. Rather of merely hearing another “Jesus” narrative, many people are more inclined to be interested in hearing about someone’s personal development as a result of their faith. One of my favorite songs is My Story by Big Daddy Weave, which is available on iTunes. It is written in the songs that “to tell you my story is to tell of Him.” This is one of the lyrics. When you are talking about Jesus with people, it is critical that you keep the conversation focused on Him and how wonderful He is, as well as the wonderful things He has done for you.
Assist people in developing a connection based on their religious beliefs. A large number of us are members of Christian faiths that we believe are the most effective means of connecting with God.
Share the Gospel by Listening
As a result, you might be wondering how you can both listen and participate at the same time. Take, for example, a non-believer who is suffering from bad luck or is going through anything as a result of his earlier wicked actions. True, many non-believers would expect a Christian to approach them all with a critical attitude. All of this would not have happened if you had stayed on the straight path with God. When we see someone struggling, it is natural for us to jump in and give our assistance.
Don’t be such a hypocritical Christian!
James 1:19 (NASB) Instead, simply pay attention to what they have to say.
Share The Gospel Through Your Works
So many of us share the good news of Jesus, and then we just stop talking about it. Sharing the gospel with people, on the other hand, entails much more than merely talking about Jesus. If you read any of the first four books of the New Testament that speak about Jesus’ life, you will find that it is packed with all of the good deeds that He performed, not only the sermons he delivered or the parables that he taught, but also with all of the wonderful actions that He did. Put yourself in the same position as others, that they may witness your good acts and offer praise to your heavenly Father.” 5:16 (Matthew 5:16) The good deeds of Jesus in today’s world are made possible by the fact that we are His hands and feet.
Share the Gospel with Social Media
In our hands – literally at our fingertips – is the most powerful (Earthly) instrument we can imagine: the power of social media. We spend more time on social media than we do with our families and friends, according to some estimates. (This is something I sincerely hope is not the case!). Social media provides us with tremendous power in spreading the gospel throughout the entire world! Thousands of individuals are use social media to intimidate and disseminate hate as well as bad material. Christians, on the other hand, may utilize social media to evangelize and spread the Good News.
Bible Verses About Sharing the Gospel
It is easy to become engrossed in this life, but when we understand that our time here on earth is limited, but our time in Heaven is limitless, the entire game is turned upside down. It is our responsibility to share Jesus with people. Consequently, go and make disciples of all countries, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to do everything I have spoken. Matthew 28:19 (KJV) His majesty should be declared throughout the nations, and his wonders should be proclaimed across the entire human race.
Mark 16:15 We no longer have to be afraid of the repercussions of talking about Jesus or any other worldly concerns with our friends and family. Because this is our life, we can simply share our experiences without fear.
How To Talk About Jesus with Non-Believers
It might be intimidating to talk about Jesus with individuals who do not believe in Him. That’s perfectly OK. Here are five suggestions to assist you in shining a brighter light on your religion in the eyes of people around you. Although I have been surrounded by like-minded people and other believers who have encouraged me in my religion, my experience of following Jesus has not been that way. In reality, it is the polar opposite of that. I have a couple of Christian acquaintances, but the majority of my pals aren’t sure what they believe, and others are outright opposed to religious institutions.
When there is an answer to prayer, or when I have a truly wonderful God experience, or when I am at ease in His presence, I want to share it with others.
1) Be Courageous in Conversation
You should not be embarrassed to share how the Lord is working in your life when someone inquires as to your “how are you?” or “what’s your highlight of the week?” If the truth be told, your most memorable experience was an answer to prayer, then say so! Please share your experience if you’ve had a difficult few months because you feel like you’ve lost connection with the Lord and haven’t felt his presence in a long time. Bringing up the Lord in a discussion with someone who is not a Christian is not anything to be embarrassed about.
Recently, when people have asked me for podcast recommendations, I’ve been telling them about a sermon series I’ve been listening to on a daily basis on iTunes.
2) Be Sensitive and Respectful
“That’s ridiculous, why do you think that?” I’ve heard people remark. “How could you possibly believe in something like that?” says another. And to hear anything like that is painful! I passionately believe in God, and it stings when someone criticizes my religious views in a condescending manner. Knowing what it’s like to be in that situation, it’s critical to never put someone else in that position for not believing. You never know what someone’s past is with the church or religion unless you ask, and it is not fair to project any preconceived beliefs onto them without first asking.
That has served as an excellent springboard for me to begin challenging my views and engaging in genuine debates about them.
In today’s culture, it frequently feels like everyone is waiting for someone to finish speaking before they can add their two pennies worth of commentary. This is not the beginning of a dialogue. We must reintroduce the skill of listening — the practice of emptying one’s thoughts and being fully present in the current moment. We want to not just listen to what someone is saying, but also to think about it, engage with them, and gain a better knowledge of that person via this process. The ability to listen is critical when discussing the Lord with someone else because if you’re simply talking at them and not paying attention to how they’re processing what you’re saying or how they’re feeling, the conversation is worthless.
It is important to take breaks from these chats to remain silent. Allow your words to wash over your buddy and allow them to sink in.
4) Invite and Encourage
Many interactions will occur in which you will mention your religion or how God is acting in your life, and others will either pass right past it or refuse to engage you in a discussion about it. That’s perfectly OK! Take advantage of opportunities to share your religion with others when you are given the chance. We have a responsibility to spread the Gospel, or the Good News. We have been tasked with the task of bringing individuals into the Kingdom. Please invite and encourage your friend(s) to accompany you to church, to participate in a bible study, or to read from the Bible with you.
Demonstrate to them what it’s like to live with Him.
5) Verses to Hold On To
The following are some of my favorite passages to help you in your Kingdom building endeavors:
- ‘Allow your light to shine before others, so that they may see your good deeds and give praise to your heavenly Father,’ says the Bible. According to Matthew 5:13-15, “Therefore, we are Christ’s representatives, and God is making his case through us.” We beg you on Christ’s behalf to seek reconciliation with God.” Paul writes in 2 Corinthians 5:20, “Teaching them to obey all that I have instructed you.” And behold, I am with you always, throughout the days of your life, to the end of the age.” –Matthew 28:20
- Romans 14:6
step by step guide to having Jesus conversations with nonbelievers — Wholeheartedly Messy
Conversations are icky. Talking to strangers is a drag. It’s a drag having to put on trousers just to walk outdoors and chat to people. Let me hear that from all of the introverts in the room: AMEN! (For serious, scroll down and leave an AMEN comment)Let’s be honest here. Talking to others is difficult, especially when the subject is spiritual, which may or may not have an impact on someone’s entire eternity. But we have to do it because Jesus instructed us to do so. So go and make disciples of all countries, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, as Jesus instructed.
And rest assured that I will be with you at all times, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19-20, New Living Translation) You’re probably familiar with the story.
1.) Pray, pray, pray, and pray some more.
“Share your sins with one another and pray for one another so that you may be cured of your transgressions. The sincere prayer of a decent person has tremendous power and achieves amazing outcomes.” (James 5:16 New Living Translation) I understand what you’re going through. So self-evident. The most critical step in this entire process is, however, the first step in itself. Without prayer, we are powerless, and we will be unable to do anything. As a disciple, you must begin each day on your knees (literally if possible) because it prepares your heart for the day ahead and sets the stage for what is to come later in the morning.
Pray for the assistance of the Holy Spirit.
- For anyone interested, here is a Pinterest board that has a large number of prayer resources: http://www.pinterest.com/boards/prayer-resources.
2.) Trust God.
“And when you are brought to trial in the synagogues and before rulers and authorities, don’t worry about how to defend yourself or what to say, because the Holy Spirit will teach you what needs to be said at that time.” (Luke 12: 11-12 NLT)Once you’ve prayed it out, let it go. It’s important to let go of your worries. Count on God to provide for you and to supply you with the words to express what you need to say.
Give Him complete control over the outcome since He knows what He’s doing. Put an end to your fussing, your panicking, and your fearing, and put your faith in the One who goes before you and prepares a path for you.
3.) Initiate a conversation with that person.
“Because if you listen to the word but do not comply, it is the equivalent of looking in the mirror and seeing yourself. You take a look at yourself, walk away, and forget what you appear to be. However, if you thoroughly examine the flawless rule that sets you free, and if you follow its instructions without forgetting what you have learned, God will reward you for your efforts.” (James 1:23–25, New Living Translation) Waiting for someone to approach you is a waste of time. Instead, go to them!
Walk up to that individual and say hello with a SMILE.
Don’t be a jerk.
What important is that you’re present and that you’re following God’s instructions.
4.) Find common ground.
“Because if you listen to the word but do not obey it, it is the equivalent of looking in the mirror and seeing your own reflection in it. Then you glance in the mirror again and forget what you appear to be like. When you study closely into the flawless rule that sets you free, and if you do what it says and don’t forget the lessons you learned, God will reward you for your efforts.” The New Living Translation of James 1:23-25 reads, ” Waiting for someone to approach you is a waste of time. Instead, go to them.
Approach the individual and greet them with a SMILE.
Don’t be shy.
That you are there and that you are following God’s instructions is all that matters.
5.) Bring up spiritual topics.
“Instead, you must acknowledge Christ as Lord of your life and worship him as such. And, if someone inquires about your faith, always be prepared to explain it to them. But make sure to do so in a gentle and respectful manner. Keep your conscience free of any guilt.” (1 Peter 3:15-16, New Living Translation) “Rebellious sinner, your wretchedness necessitates the presence of Jesus, or your soul will perish in the lake of fire,” do not say. That is simply unacceptable. Remember that the Gospel is about love, not terror, and that you should never try to intimidate someone into embracing Jesus.
Instead, be kind and accommodating in your approach.
Take, for example, the death of my mother when I was a child.
- Did you spend a lot of time at church as a child? What was it like for you during that time? What would you ask God if you only had one question to ask him? I’d want you to come to Bible study, church, or supper

6.) Listen, and then listen some more.
For the next 5 days, we’ll be discussing how to properly study the Bible, delve deeply into it, and enable it to profoundly impact our lives.
Suggestion: make a joke.
“A joyful heart is wonderful medicine, but a broken spirit saps the vigor of a person.” (Proverbs 17:22 New Living Translation) Laughter contributes to the development of trust as well.
It has the ability to heal. It beckons folks to come in. Making a joke and laughing at yourself helps others know that you are friendly and easy to talk to.
7.) Share what God did in you.
“And they have beaten him by the blood of the Lamb and through their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the point that they were frightened to die.” (Revelation 12:11 NLT)The chances are that you may connect to what they just told you in some way. Make use of it. Make use of your personal experience to demonstrate God’s goodness to others. Except for your own personal testimony, people can disagree on everything else. Be honest with yourself. Be forthright. Tell your tale because it has the ability to move people.
Your testimony, in the same sense, is the most effective instrument you have for sharing Christ with others.

“Due to the fact that God’s word is living and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged blade, striking between the soul and the spirit, between the joint and the marrow of the body. It provides a window into our most private thoughts and aspirations.” (Hebrews 4:12 New Living Translation) They may be perplexed, enraged, apprehensive, weirded out, or any combination of these emotions. That’s fantastic. Accept it and move forward. Inquire if they have any queries. They might be able to.
If you don’t know anything that they question you about, it’s perfectly ok as well!
This makes you appear more human and personable, and it also opens the door for you to have another conversation with that individual about Jesus Christ later on!

10.) Trust God with whatever happens.
“Put your trust in the Lord with all of your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding. Find his will in all you do, and he will direct your steps in the right direction.” (Proverbs 3:5-6 New Living Translation) It’s very possible that they will not accept Christ right away, and that’s just great. You performed your job and followed Christ’s commandments, and that’s what matters. You planted the seed, and it’s possible that someone else may be able to reap the benefits of it. Continue to pray for them and have faith that God is in complete command of the situation.

11.) Live it out.
You are the light of the world, like a city on a hilltop that can’t be concealed from sight. No one ever lights a lamp and then tosses it under a basket to save energy. Instead, a lamp is put on a stand, from which it shines brightly enough to illuminate the entire home.

And that’s pretty much it in terms of content. There were no fatalities. No one was chased by enraged Huns during this time. If you pray and put your confidence in God to handle whatever comes your way, sharing the Gospel is quite simple. Always keep in mind that it is not your responsibility to save people; rather, it is God’s. It is now your responsibility to go into the world and create God’s kingdom!
My King, I earnestly pray for the person who reads this. Use this for your glory, and equip this person to do your will and build your kingdom. Let your Spirit fall on them to give them the boldness and the power to do whatever you ask of them. May they humbly serve you wherever and whenever they can. Send them out into the world to make you known. Prepare a way for them. Prepare the hearts of those they are going to meet. Thank you for the gift of your Spirit and your unfailing love. Help us to share you and live boldly for your name. To you be the glory. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
