Sharing the Gospel is every Christian’s duty, and most believers know this. The fact is that some churchgoers are simply not sharing their faith. There are several reasons why this could be happening, and it shouldn’t. Christians should try to get to the bottom of this dilemma. The following are a few tips to help believers share their faith.
The first thing you should try to do is be natural. Many Christians have a hard time talking to others about their faith because they are not being themselves. You want to find a way to witness to others through natural means. You do not have to prepare a speech before you speak to others. Witnessing needs to be innate rather than forced. An unnatural tone could also make a conversation feel disingenuous, and this might turn off someone to your message.
You might want to talk to people using various forms of communication. Sometimes the reason some Christians have a hard time talking to others is because they are nervous. Those who feel a little too nervous talking to someone might want to consider different mediums of communication. Thankfully, this day and age offers you a lot of different ways to communicate, such as chat rooms, forums, and comment sections, just to name a few. You can use these tools to form genuine conversations that will hopefully give you an opportunity to witness to others.
Some Christians may find it difficult to talk to others and witness simply because they do not feel strong enough to do so. Witnessing is not hard, but you should still have a certain level of Biblical knowledge and understanding. You not only have to get over social inhibitions that you could be harboring but also resistant non-believers. Some of these non-believers could reject your attempt to witness in a hostile way. Some non-believers may have questions, which could intimidate you if you do not have a strong foundation. You want to be as informed as possible when witnessing, which means that you need ample education. You can try this website to learn more, and go to your pastor to reinforce your witnessing tactics.
It is okay to feel a little nervous about talking to people, but this inhibition can stem from not being properly trained to converse. Some Christians don’t like to witness much because of the way non-believers respond. The problem could be that you have been saying the wrong things to non-believers. You should learn to respect non-believers so that they are receptive of your message. Try to talk to friends who might be unbelievers. Find out what turns them off when you speak about your faith.
These are just some things that you can consider when witnessing. This is your job as a Christian, not only to help those in need of saving but to be obedient to the Lord. Hopefully, these tips are helpful and make you a stronger Christian.
