Christian moms and business-people often have bigger challenges than missionaries in sharing Christ.*
That’s because people are usually curious about language and customs different than their own. For example, when I lived in Budapest, the fact that I was a native English-speaker attracted non-Christian Hungarians to my translated Bible seminars.
And people in vocational Christian work in the U.S. have some advantage too because their faith is part of their job description and people expect them to be more vocal about it.
But most Christians don’t have these advantages, and it’s sometimes hard to witness on our home turf (Mark 6:4).
How can we overcome these challenges?
By being deliberate and prepared.
“Prepare your minds for action; be self-controlled; set your hope fully on the grace to be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed.” 1 Peter 1:13
So, if you ever feel like I do--that witnessing seems awkward and unnatural at times--rejoice! We can do something about it.
Here's a devotion that will give you a good start: Are You Ready?
* This isn’t true for missionaries in countries where sharing Christ is prohibited, such as those in the 10/40 window. These missionaries usually are called “tent makers” because they must enter the country with another vocation, and they have the additional challenge of prohibitive laws and anti-Christian sentiments.
