Quiet Proclamation

October 18, 2005

Here's a great piece that reminds us that sometimes the most effective evangelism is quiet and behind the scenes. Living quiet, godly life is witnessing Here's a highlight:

"My friend learned that Christian witnessing does not have to be bold to be effective. While changed people should want to change the world around them, there is nothing wrong if a Christian chooses to be a quiet, effective witness for Christ. In fact, the more we allow others to see the change in us, rather than talk about it, the more likely they are to ask us what's going on. Believe me, the story is a lot easier to tell when the audience wants to hear it."

We are called to be the salt and light of the world—not the hammer. So don’t worry that you don’t have a bully pulpit with lots of people listening to you. Through your words and deeds in everyday life, gently point people to God.
