Don’t Push posted by John Sorensen on Jul 07, 2016
Have you ever felt like you had to share the Gospel with everyone who crossed your path?
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. Don’t try to share the Gospel with everything that moves. Now, this may come as a total surprise seeing I am the president of a ministry that teaches Christians how to share their faith, but my point is this – some people will be wide open – ready, even eager to hear the Gospel, having been prepared by the Holy Spirit. But others you engage may not be so open to spiritual conversation. When you find someone who is not, don’t push. If you have turned the conversation toward spiritual things and you sense a resistance or uncomfortable response, just tactfully change the subject. Demonstrate true sensitivity and concern for your friend, and God will open the door in His time – next week, next month, perhaps tomorrow. Just stay close to the Lord, and He will lead. Of course, it does help to have some equipping in how to share your faith. If you’re not sure how to do that, visit ShareLife.today for Gospel resources to help you.
