Most Christians know they should be trying to tell their friends and family about Jesus. But in a post-Christendom world, personal evangelism is viewed negatively—it's offensive, inappropriate, and insensitive. Recent studies confirm that the majority of Christians rarely evangelize, worried they might offend their family or lose their friends. Today, our guest will equip everyday Christians who are reluctant and nervous to tell their friends about Jesus with practical, tested ways of sharing their faith in the least awkward ways possible.
The Bible is clear that we face three different types of opposition while attempting to successfully navigate life as Ambassadors for Christ. Our opposition is identified in Scripture as “the world” (1 John 2:15-17), “the flesh” (Romans 7:15-25), and “the devil” (1 Peter 5:8-9). The sad reality is that too many Christians lose more battles than they win and endure their walk with God rather than enjoy it because they often don't recognize how opposition through spiritual warfare actually works. More importantly, they have no idea how to effectively and efficiently respond to these attacks. Scripture nowhere indicates that a wish, a hope, a cliché, or a sincere guess represent adequate responses to attacks from these three very real enemies. Christians must be strategic in their responses to these clearly defined enemies, learning how to fight biblically rather than just sincerely. Join us to learn how to be victorious in battle.
Sometimes Christians are tormented by relentless insecurities about their eternal destiny. Tragically, many others have based their eternal destiny on a false assurance! Neither option is healthy! Our Truth Tool helps us place the hope of our salvation in Christ alone. It's founded on the truth of Scripture and the claims of Jesus. Looking to bolster your confidence in God's hand on your life?

The Bible is filled with stories of imperfect people serving a perfect God. As you read the biographies of the men and women written about in the Bible, apart from Jesus Himself, is there one person that you most relate to? Does this person remind you of YOU? Does his or her story challenge you in a particular way? Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
