Topic: Evangelism (11/01/07)

TITLE: Christlike Quietness
By Brenda Welc


Displayed so the world can see in all itís splendor is the creation of Godsí many wonders. It makes you want to share all the glory with those around you. Sometimes you feel as though you are about to burst with all the things stirring within your soul, however, you donít want to scare them off. Those who do not understand or seem to value what is sacred to you creates an anger, an emotion which needs to be expressed. To unleash these desires upon the unsuspecting would cause doubt and possible segregation from the world as you know it. No, a sweeter approach is necessary within the realm of todayís society.

People today want glamor and excitement. They want fireworks and balloons. They want their cake and ice cream served to them on a silver platter. Belief in any one thing is only brought about by proof and extensive displays of hard work. Convincing someone to go along with your type of thinking is a battle better left to the spiritual world. All we can do as Christians on this earth is to show His love in our actions. Showing others what itís like to live in the comfort of knowing God will take care of our every need is the best way to win others over to Christ. Letting people see a difference in you peaks their curiosity every time.

Evangelism today is not an easy job. So many people have been deceived by the devil they have no idea what it means to be safe in the arms of angels. They fail to see what splendor awaits them if only they accept Christ. It is up to us who have accepted Christ and all His promises to show others just how wonderful a walk with God is. We must express in our daily walk just how secure we are in our beliefs. As Christians we need to display God in all of our actions, not by shouting the need to read the Bible or pushing others to join a church, but by how we treat other people. By wearing our Christianity on our sleeves we will win more hearts to Christ just from our actions.

I know, itís hard not to shout from the mountain ranges that Jesus is our personal Savior and everybody should follow us into the promise land, but itís just not the way to go. Christlike quietness is the manner we should mold our Christian profile around. Winning hearts by random acts of kindness. Donating food to the local food pantry. Volunteering at a senior center. Helping a child in need. Baking cookies for the new neighbor. Putting your needs after the needs of others. They are so many ways we can be evangelists without pushing our beliefs on others against their will.

Take a moment today to create a plan on how to be a Christlike quiet evangelist. Show by your actions you are a Christian. Display your heart on your sleeve, it's okay. Give others some of yourself and spend a little time getting to know those around you. Make it known by small actions you are secure in your beliefs. Show the world you have no fears in the days ahead. Let them know you have the confidence to get through anything the world has to give you. You never know when God will intervene in your evangelism. He has a plan for everyone, you might just be the random act of kindness He needs to get His point across.

Your enthusiasm comes through and the game plan idea is a great way to encourage others to step out in action.
