Bearers of Hope: Practical steps to sharing your faith

Plus four:

  1. Pray: Ask God to place on your heart four people who do not yet know Christ.  Pray for them! ‘Ask the Lord of the harvest..’ (Matt 9:38)
  2. Percolate: Develop authentic relationships with those four people – coffee is a great conversation starter!  ‘When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, “Will you give me a drink?” ‘ (John 4:7)
  3. Pour Out: Love them extravagantly, unconditionally, sacrificially! Let’s pour out our lives!  ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ (Rom 13:9)
  4. Persuade: Tell them your story!  Do this with sensitivity! Don’t forget to ask gently for a response.  ‘Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.  But do this with gentleness and respect…’ (1 Peter 3:15)
