Not only is evangelism attraction as non-believers are curious about what God is doing, Evangelism is also a strong witness to those around us.
When we take our faith with us the other 6 days of the week and live our lives in the way God wants us to live others cannot help but see the difference in our lives and that is a strong witness. Unfortunately, there are many who claim to be Christians that do not follow through on their commitment to live out their faith every day. When non-believers see this type of behavior it can hurt our witness.
How do we make sure that we are being a strong witness?
- Live a Christ-centered life.
The way you live your life will affect what you do and how you act. When you decide to prioritize Christ in your life others will see that you are different in. good way. With so many bad examples to see someone who is living for Christ will be refreshing to those around you and you will be a strong witness for Christ.
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12:1-2
- Share your testimony.
When you have a relationship with God, he speaks to you. He expects us to share our lives with others especially what he has done in our lives. We need to make sure to talk about Christ to others. This includes telling out salvation testimony but also our current experience with God and what he is teaching us.
15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; 1 Peter 3:15
- Serve and Give Generously
You will notice that in Acts 4:32-35, one of the things that sets the believers apart is their unity and generosity. They shared everything and no one had need. We cannot hold onto our possessions and time so tightly that they begin to rule our hearts. We are to be wise stewards but not withhold our gifts for use in God’s service.
Nothing tells others that we are thankful to God than taking what he has given to us and sharing it with others. When we do this in a ways that demonstrates the love of God it cannot help but be a strong witness and is evangelism lived out.
