Let’s face it, millennials tend to hold a bad reputation when the words God, Jesus Christ, church, and Christianity are around. In fact, millennials stand out as least likely to value church attendance. Only two in 10 believe it is important and more than 35% of millennial young adults take an anti-church stance according to the Barna Group, a visionary research, and resource company located in Ventura, California. However not all hope has to be lost. In Matthew chapter 28 verses 16 through 20 the Lord informs us that we to follow in his image by being of good cheer and witnessing to others as his disciples.
And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
With this being said we should strive to be proactive in our witnessing.This week take time out of your busy schedule and add three components it. By doing so you will see a tremendous change in your walk with Christ as well as the significant change you have provided for others simply by witnessing to them.
1. Walk and talk
Take 20 to 30 minutes out of your schedule and walk the streets. This walk could simply be in your neighborhood or your high school or college campus. While walking, ask God to touch your heart and reveal to you who you should speak with on your journey. During this process do not worry about what you will say or how to approach the person in your path for God will surely tell you.
2. Reach out to your old friend
Chat it up with an old friend through a phone call, email, text, or social media app. During your chat truly be genuine a hear how they’ve been. Once they ask you about yourself, casually inform them of your new relationship with Christ
3. Get Connected
Social media is a creative way to witness to people. Let your light shine by providing a great word of encouragement, daily devotional, telling your testimony or a testimony of someone through social media. The same issue, circumstance or situation you went through to inform someone of the trial you made it through could truly be that one step they need to surrender and give their life to Christ.
