BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS AND WINNING PEOPLE TO CHRIST

YOUR DAILY MOMENT: Inspirational thoughts to begin your day
February 6, 2018

Last night at my church we had a soup-er bowl party.  There were at least a half-dozen delicious soups and desserts. We had fellowship around the tables for about an hour and then enjoyed watching the Super Bowl.   There was a healthy rivalry but all in good fun. It was not our typical Sunday evening service. The best thing about the event is that is was not about food or football.  It was about outreach to the community and developing relationships with the visitors that attended. 

It reminds me that sometimes we need to think out of the box.  We can go knocking on doors from now until Jesus comes, but, as in this case, inviting people to a night of fun and fellowship is all it takes to establish a bond.

In everyday life, it is much the same way.   We win more people to Christ by developing relationships, day by day with those where we work, shop, or do business or pleasure. When those with whom we interact daily see that we care about them, the relationship begins, and the door opens for us to share Christ.

I wonder how many opportunities I pass up every week to share the love of God with someone I see daily or weekly.  How often could I give a caring touch, share a scripture, say a prayer, or softly breathe the name of Jesus?

We win people to Christ one person and one relationship at a time. Wherever you find yourself today,  look for opportunities to befriend others and begin, what could be, a most important relationship that may lead someone to Christ.
