I was reading a thread on one of the Bible Forums I belong to, and came across a great post answering the question
“How do you start witnessing to somebody?”
That’s a great question.
I’ve been a Christian for nearly 20 years and witnessing simply seems natural to me.
But how does one start witnessing to somebody when you are a young Christian?
Here is a partial list from one of the responses:
- Make known that you are a Christian. (2 Corinthians 3.2)
- Be blameless as you are an ambassador for Christ (2 Peter 3.14)
- Pray for opportunities (1 Thess 5.17 and 1 Peter 3.15)
To that list, I would add the following.
- Notice when the Holy Spirit “underlines” the moment for a conversation.
Noticing when God prompts you for a conversation is a skill that is learned as you grow in your relationship with Christ. There is no script for that.
Something to think about:
Have you developed the art of noticing whom God is underlining for you?
