Sharing your faith

Where can we start in talking with friends about God to people who desperately need him? Some suggestions:

Ask questions (not too pushy) about your friend’s spiritual background. Everyone has a spiritual side to them, for God made us as spiritual beings.

Eg “Were you brought up in a church going family?”  “Do you ever pray?”

If they show spiritual interest, go with it and ask a few more questions. Show them God’s love in the way you interact with them. If appropriate, tell the some of your spiritual story, how God became real to you and met your thirst for meaning, forgiveness or the hope of heaven. Ask if there is anything you can pray for them. I have found most people are open to being prayed for. Make sure you do pray, including that God will soften their hearts towards him.
