Remember What You Used To Be Like? (2)

‘I try to find common ground with everyone.' 1 Corinthians 9:22 NLT

It's easy to develop ‘spiritual amnesia'. You forget what you used to be like. And that attitude affects the people you deal with each day. Kelli Trujillo writes: ‘I've a workplace acquaintance who embodies all the negative stereotypes of evangelical Christians. She's judgmental her behaviour borders on bizarre she's completely (and purposefully) out of touch with culture. She considers any attempt to tone down her evangelism as persecution None of us wants to be like that so we hop on the pendulum as it swings in the other direction and our efforts become so subtle, they're imperceptible.'

How can we share our faith, while maintaining a high level of integrity?

(1) Ask sincere questions and listen with a caring spirit.

(2) When appropriate, tell others you're praying for them—then do it!

(3) Pray driving to work and ask God to help you see your workplace as a mission field.

(4) Don't downplay the importance of your faith. When it naturally fits a conversation, talk about church, prayer, Scripture, and Christian community. Let others see joy and purpose in your life.

(5) Demonstrate God's love for all people by initiating a company food collection for charityor organising a blood donation campaign.

(6) Strive for excellence. Be the person that your manager and co-workers rely on to do a solid job.

(7) Invite co-workers to events with your Christian friends. Non-churchgoers are often open to going on holidays like Christmas or Easter.

(8) When you're not sure about when to speak, check in with God and ‘say whatever is given you at the time, for it is not you speaking, but the Holy Spirit.' ( NIV)

(9) Above all—maintain a humble attitude!

SoulFood: Ecc 9-12, Luke 6:17-26, Ps 104:24-35, Pro 3:11-12
