The believers who have experienced new life in Christ will be eager to share their experience of His love and forgiveness, both verbally and in the way they live with others. Sharing the story of salvation is witnessing. “That . . . which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at, and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of Life” (1 John 1:1-3). In God’s Word, we find many tips that help us in witnessing to others:
A- Get close to people. He “drew near and went with them” (Luke 24:15).
B- Look for an opportunity to share His love. “As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith” (Galatians 6:10).
D- Be a good listener. “My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry” (James 1:19).
E- Offer God’s solution first. “Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water” (John 4:10).
F- Be prepared to give an answer to your faith. “… be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear” (1 Peter 3:15).
G- Lead people to the Scriptures. “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17).
I- Give all the glory to God and not to yourself. “Let them give glory to the LORD and declare His praise in the coastlands” (Isaiah 42:12).
