2 Ways to Make the Most of Witnessing Opportunities - 1 Peter 1:13, Ephesians 5:15-17

Sharing Christ naturally, being prepared
Are you ready?

Effectively sharing Christ should be a natural thing for those of us who call Him our Lord. But often it seems unnatural and clumsy.

The Holy Spirit can use our most awkward attempts, but it's still wiser for us to prepare. 

Ephesians 5:15-17 says, “Be very careful, then how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity” and 1 Peter 1:13 tells us to “prepare our minds for action…” 

Knowing how much Christ has done for us, the least we can do is become more effective witnesses for Him. 

Here’s two ways to prepare for opportunities:
1. Get comfortable sharing your personal testimony—the story of your conversion. (See  6 Ways to Share Your Testimony.)
2. Memorize Scriptures that clearly explain salvation. (See The Roman Road for one of the oldest and easiest methods for doing this.)

Then, when an opportunity arises, ask the Holy Spirit to use your preparations and knowledge in the most natural, effective way.

  2. Thanks for these great reminders. I've started to carry some of Ray Comfort's creative ice breakers to help me bridge the gap when I want to share Christ with someone but I'm feeling chicken-ish.

    I'm so glad you dropped by Plenty Place and left a note so that I could find your treasure chest full of gospel goodness over here!
