Everyday Things

Verse 9b of our Bible Reading says that “God chose you to tell about the wonderful things he has done.” There are many ways that we can tell other people about God and Jesus.
In the book, Becoming a Contagious Christian, Bill Hybels suggests that we should use the “barbecue first” method. Let me explain this. Before you talk to someone about Jesus, do everyday things with them. Eat together or do fun things together or have them over to your house for a barbecue. Take time to really know that person.
Then after you have done everyday things with that person, invite them to church or a Bible study. If you are true friends, that person will trust you. Then you can say, “I have some really Good News to share with you!”
God will put people in your life that need to know about Him. Share the Good News about Jesus with them today.
