One of the things that puts Christians off from engaging with others about that which relates the gospel of our Saviour, is the feeling that they might not be able to respond appropriately to an issue that is raised or a question asked. This applies in seeking to speak with both Christians and non-Christians.
I want to assert here that you don’t need to know all the answers to any question raised. What is most important with many people is that you are willing to speak with them. What happens when you meet with people to talk is:
- Through talking they very often are helped to resolve their own issues.
- The fact that you love them enough to give them your time can be a powerful help to the person.
- If there are issues that arise that you don’t know how to respond to then you can say to the person that you will go away and consider it.
- When you have prayed before speaking with someone, it very often happens that you are given the right word at the right time for the situation.
So please in a godly and spiritual way we need to be getting involved to speak with one another in our churches and with people outside. Our distancing ourselves from others is not good.
