Somebody once asked me, “Pastor, which is more important? Witnessing with our life or witnessing with our lips?” Well, that’s like asking which wing of the airplane is most important . . . you have to have both!
When it comes to leading others to Christ, many Christians today think, “Oh, I’ll just live a good life and those people will see how good I am and jump right on board.” Now isn’t that arrogant to think that by our good lives, people will come to Christ? It’s not our lives but the life of the Lord Jesus Christ that they need!
You and I don’t just need to present ourselves and our good works. We also need to tell people the reason for the hope that is in us!
By our words and our actions, we’re to share Christ to the lost and the hurting. You can’t just sit in the lifeboat of a sinking ship and hope everyone else finds it. You have to tell them. So with your words and your actions, share Christ with everyone you can and allow God to draw them to himself!
