We all have seen people sharing their faith in ways that are less desirable. We have seen people talk, talk and talk and never listen. We have seen people with megaphones and signs. We have even seen people yell and get angry. So how in the world are we supposed to share our faith?
The first D in 3D living is learning to DEVELOP FRIENDSHIPS
Building friendships takes more time and effort than simply sharing information. Listening to others and learning about others is harder than talking. Loving people is harder than proselytizing.
Proverbs 18:2 says a fool finds no pleasure in understanding but delights in airing his own opinions.
If we want to share our faith we have to become better at friendship building. We have to become better at caring for people. Listening to people. Loving people. We have to become better at understanding.
I love what Mark Batterson says in his book "The Wild Goose Chase." "If we are going to fulfill the ancient commission we need to get out of the comfortable confines of our Christian ghettos and invade some hellholes with the light and love of Christ."
What would happen if you put your script, speech and plans aside for a moment and began to build friendships with people around you? What would happen if you genuinely looked for opportunities to serve and help? Can you imagine what doors God would open up for you to share your faith?
