Three Tips for Talking with Others about God

Have you ever tried to talk to someone about Jesus and been unsure about what to say? Opening up to others can be scary. It can be terrifying to share your faith in Christ, especially when you’re not sure how someone might respond. In those moments, here are three things to remember to help you stay calm and communicate the gospel well: 1. Take a deep breath and rest in this truth: as you share the truth from God’s Word, God is the One who is at work in the person you’re talking to and it is not ultimately up to you whether this person will respond to the gospel (1 Corinthians 3:6-7). 2. Be kind in the way you present the truth (1 Peter 3:15). Offer the person a smile. Be gentle with them. Be willing to answer any questions they might have. Listen closely to them. 3. Pray about what you are going to say. The Holy Spirit will not abandon you and will equip you (Luke 12:12). You can even pray silently for wisdom while you are speaking. As you share the gospel, remember Jesus is with you. You are never alone— even during scary conversations with those who do not yet share your faith. • Emily Acker • Who are people in your life you want to share the gospel with? • How could you use the tips in today’s devotion in your conversations with them? • Who are mature Christians in your life you can talk with about how to witness well?
