Do you share something of your experience with and faith in Jesus Christ in meaningful ways with members of your family? Maybe at a time of solemn crisis? Or at a moment of joy?
Evangelism—witnessing in the name of Christ and sharing the good news—is not a once and done thing. It’s an ongoing response on our part to the experience of God’s grace in our lives. It comes slowly and steadily in our spiritual formation. God is present guiding us, even at times when we hesitate sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with our family.
Beyond the words you say, you witness to your faith through choices: the music you listen to, the books you read, the food and other items you buy, by sharing your gifts with others, regular prayer. What’s the witness of your choices?
