When the people around you see the peace in your life, especially when it seems like you’re surrounded by storms, you can bet they’ll want to know how to get what you got! On the other hand, if all they see is the top of your head as you sink into the water, there’s not a whole lot to ask.
Treat people with respect and dignity, no matter the circumstances. Whenever you have the opportunity, show how you don’t change how you treat people, no matter what. Jesus treated people right, even when they mistreated Him. People around you will wonder how you’re able to show this kind of respect for others. You never know, they may even ask.
Find ways to be a blessing to others. This not only plants amazing seeds for a harvest in your own life, it shows others that you’re not a phony. It shows that you live what you believe. Saying you’re a Christian is one thing, but living it in tangible ways every day is something else. The Word says, “They’ll know them by their fruit.”
Don’t compromise your beliefs. Situations happen every day where compromise is not only possible, but many times is expected. Show people that your Christianity means living a life of integrity. And oh yes, that means you tell the sales clerk when she undercharged you for that quart of milk!
The ability to forgive quickly is a very powerful way to show how Christianity really works. Become a model of forgiveness. Nothing creates division, hostility, and turmoil more than an unwillingness to forgive the people who hurt you. Of course, there will be times when you are absolutely right. But being right doesn’t give you a free pass to punish, humiliate, or embarrass someone else. And it most certainly doesn’t eliminate your responsibility to forgive.
The best way to share your faith is to be an example.
People will want to know how you can be peaceful in the storm, why your kids are doing so well, why your marriage is so great, and how you know for sure about your purpose in life. And when they ask, you’ll have all kinds of great stuff to share.
