FEAR OF THE UNKNOWN!

“The apostles performed many signs and wonders among the people. And all the believers used to meet in Solomon’s Colonnade. No one else dared join them, even though they were highly regarded by the people. Nevertheless, more and more men and women believed in the Lord and were added to their number.”  (Acts 5:12-14, NIV)

Grace
Every day in thousands of workplaces around the world, Christians testify to God’s grace in their lives in some way. Sometimes it comes through the performance of their duties with a smile and peace that non-believers simply don’t understand. In other cases, there might be more visible, unexplained examples of God’s work (like those found in the early Church) where signs and wonders could not be humanly understood.

I’ve seen non-believers acknowledge their respect for Christian workplace believers, but were afraid to accept Christ for fear of the unknown. It’s up to each of us to bridge that gap and show our non-believing friends, co-workers, customers, and clients that there is nothing to fear. In fact, it’s up to us to live in such a way that they understand the peace and love that lives within each of us.

Look at the people God has placed in your life. Is there anyone who could use a Savior? The Lord wants us all to be saved. He doesn’t want anyone left behind. As you enter your workplace today, ask the Lord for a divine appointment that might be the turning point for a lost soul. There’s no prayer the Lord would rather hear.

    No matter where we are, we are ambassadors for Christ! I need to remember this on a daily basis. Some days I do a better job than others–something for me to think about! Thanks for the reminder.

    Yes, this is something we should strive for each and every day. We should never let an opportunity go by to help a non-believer see the truth.

  4. Such a good reminder of our responsibility to testify in some way or another. Thanking God for your food in the lunchroom, for instance and of course, just living the righteous life (a life that honestly displays your faith). Recently I joined an exercise group at an Active Adult Center for those over 55. Tomorrow I am telling a hymn story of “How Great Thou Art” in our Monday sing time. We sing Christian, patriotic, and oldies. This is a great time to testify to my peers, although it is not a workplace.

  5. What you are saying is true – but one other thing to consider is that even if a person doesn’t accept Christ at that time doesn’t mean that your behavior and love doesn’t plant a seed that someone else will water when God deems the time is right. We are to look for divine appointments and share the Gospel, but remember even seeds that show no signs of growth at the moment may outgrow others later when the time is right. God had many plant seeds in my life and some took forty years to grow. Never be discouraged. Sometimes the Gospel speaks loudest by our actions and love than by the words.
