How Ya Livin?

Hebrews 12:14 (New Living Translation)

Work at living in peace with everyone, and work at living a holy life, for those who are not holy will not see the Lord

Mmmmm that's good stuff right there!!! That just sheds some more light on personal evangelism right there. While the Gospel is either received or deemed offensive by people we don't have to "be offensive" As we navigate through this life we want to make "forever friends." What's a forever friend? One that I want to be with Jesus and me in Heaven-- forever. (-:
One way to help that along is by not purposely trying to offend or embarass. Example. What if after work one night a co worker says, "Hey you want to come join us and do such and such at such and such a place? Now unless you are ready to war please don't respond by saying. "No you uncircumsised heathen- I don't do that anymore and I don't go to those places anymore because I'am a Christian now of the Most High God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. I'am blessed and highly favored!!
Why not say instead, " No thank you but if you decide to go to ___________ let me know. Think up an alternative place so the person doesn't feel you are rejecting them forever or the friendship. Always remember - God does call us to live separately from the world but He does not want us to live isolated from it, otherwise how will the world hear about Him and repent?! More people will come to Jesus because of a compassionate yet passionate person than somebody guilt tripping them while wearing their big I Love Jesus sticker (-:

Let God Urge Men to Christ Through YOU! 2 Corinthians 5:20
Prayer for Everyone
