The Many Ways to Witness

Let’s think about the many ways to witness. Get creative. There are so many ways, but the best way is the way that God leads you to, by His Spirit. He leads us in different ways. Evangelism is communication. Sometimes, you provide the gospel for someone you will never meet or know personally. Sometimes, you will have a one time conversation with someone you will never see again. Sometimes you will have a long term relationship with someone where the Lord has you witnessing to them over time. This is all a lifestyle, not an event. The method is the message of the gospel, delivered by us mere men and women. As discussed in the previous articles, Words, and Emerging Evangelism, God intends to bring the gospel to people through the means of words. These words can be delivered through a number of ways, audible and written. Let’s consider the many ways to bring these words of witness, to people who need the Lord.

These are just some ideas to get you started. What other ways can you think of? Please feel free to share your ideas and experiences of witnessing in various ways. What ways do you witness?

    I planted, Apollos watered, but God was causing the growth. So then neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but God who causes the growth. Now he who plants and waters are one; but each will receive his own reward according to his own labor. For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, God’s building.
    1 Cor.3:6-9.
