Perhaps the greatest way to communicate faith to an unsaved person is to do all we can to comfort that person when things go sour in his or her life.
For it is at such times that the non-Christian can see the value of heart-comforting faith that has sustained us and that can do the same for them.
Even the non-believer understands that divorce hurts, that losing a family member to accidental death hurts, that losing a long-held job hurts.
When the non-believer sees that our hearts might be hurting yet we are also finding healing through the comfort of our faith — and we continue trying to provide blessings to others — it gets them thinking.
We’ve all faced some really tough times in life.
If we’ve held tightly to God’s hand during such times in ways that others noticed, we can testify authentically about the strength and direction we’ve found.
“He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.” (2 Corinthians 1:4)
That testimony of a comforted heart can provide a huge boost to our evangelistic influence.
Let’s sincerely want to help others to stop hurting emotionally.
Let’s comfort them.
Let’s show them how faith in God helps us to stop hurting emotionally.
Let’s show them how God comforts us.
As always, I love you
