I was going to do something totally different with this today until I read hon's post at God is Our Love. This is when I realize God is pretty much demanding that we get this word spread around amongst all Christians.
What is the best way to lead people to the Lord?
That is easy, but we often forget and give off a false message.
The best way to lead people to the Lord is by "Our" actions. The way we behave, treat others, act in public etc. is what people look at. If they see loving individuals that are kind, caring, loving, show compassion and all those good things, they are going to say, "Wow! Why are they so different?" Chances are, you will be approached and asked how you do it. Or they will know and tell you they want to get to know your God! There's the open doors.
So when we are out and about, look for ways to show kindness. Our Pastor's wife, Pastor Connie is one who leads by example. She loves to meet as many people as possible and strike up a conversation. If she sees someone who seems to be down, having a bad idea, what ever the situation will try to strike up a conversation and show compassion in hopes to help them out. Her goal is to have them relaxed and smiling by the time she leaves. How awesome is that?
This is exactly what we need to be doing. It catches on. It makes people wonder. A show of kindness can be done in so many ways. So what I'm asking for is come Monday to leave one suggestion or a list of suggestions/ideas that are acts of kindness that we can all be doing. I will do the same. I don't know how to do the linky thing, so leave me a message here that you are going to do this, then I will link you to the post.
Let's make a difference and lead the lost to our Awesome God!!! God Bless and may you all have a glorious, peaceful, relaxing Sunday!
