Ways To Witness To the World
People watch what you do and remember how they feel about you, far more than they hear what you say.
Live in the Spirit, not in the flesh.
How: Shine with the Fruits of the Spirit. Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control (Gal 5:22 NIV).
Love as Jesus Loved.
How: “Love each other as I have loved you” (John 15:12 NIV). Walk as Jesus walked (per 1 John 2:6). To do so, you must know the Jesus of the Bible.
Pray Daily for the World.
How: God's love is not limited to your locale. Men severely lack faith to affect the whole world or their own nation. But, Prayer is the greatest Power on Earth. “Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven” (Matt 6:10 NIV).
Be One with God.
How: Is this not God's objective for us? (per John 17:21). Living Love for God and Man is the great commands. Faith is the power. Prayer is the means.
Carry a Repentant Heart.
How: No man is without sin, except Jesus. We must know who He is, the Creator, and who we are, the creatures.
“This is the one I esteem; he who is humble and contrite in spirit, and trembles at my word” (Isa 66:2 NIV).
How: As Jesus said, “But if you do not forgive men their sins, your father will not forgive your sins” (Matt 6:15 NIV). Men widely disregard Jesus' warning.
Don't take Offense.
How: Golden Keys to Love. “It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs” (1 Cor 13:5 NIV).
Be a Rock of Integrity.
How: “Till I die, I will not deny my integrity” (Job 27:5 NIV). “Surely you desire truth in the inner parts” (Ps 51:6 NIV).
Listen to the Heart of Others.
How: “Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak” (James 1:19 NIV). Sensitive, sacrificial listening, means to be more willing to hear another, than yourself.
Trust in God with all your Heart.
How: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight” (Prov 3:9-10 NIV).
