Last week, I attended a conference on the south side of Atlanta. One of the workshops I attended dealt with reaching millenial’s with the gospel. The guy leading the workshop told us that he and his family have been reaching out to Muslim’s. To do this, he gets to know Muslim religious leaders and they learn about one another’s faith. Then, he talked about how important it is to develop relationships with unsaved people.
I admit, I was convicted. I know some unchurched people but, not as many as I need to know. I witness on a fairly regular basis but, not as often as I should. But that day, I came away knowing I needed to be more intentional in developing relationships with unsaved people.
What about you? How many unsaved people do you know? The Bible tells us that when Jesus was calling disciples, He called Matthew. Matthew was a tax-collector. He did not have a good reputation. Then, he had a social at his home and invited his friends to come and meet Jesus. The Bible says the religious leaders had a hard time with this and told Jesus. Then Jesus said, “Healthy people don’t need a doctor—sick people do. I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners” (Mark 2:17).
Jesus came for unsaved people. He wants us to reach out to the unsaved. That means developing relationships with them and as the Spirit leads, sharing the gospel with them. Let’s be more intentional in sharing the gospel with others.
