Ask for Help

Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me His prisoner, but share with me in the sufferings for the gospel according to the power of God.” 2 Timothy 1:8
This is our charge and our opportunity, to be ambassadors for Christ. We are to be joyful and confident in our identity as Christians. Your testimony is not something to be ashamed of, but grateful to a God who intervened and saved you.

When we think of witnessing it is usually a thought of giving precious information to another. And rightly so, a relationship with Christ is a most precious piece of information. But how about the witness of accepting help? What about asking your neighbor for a recommendation on a new dry cleaner? What about asking a friend to help you learn a hobby you know they are proficient at? Or be willing to ask for advice on a home repair from your neighbor who is a gifted handyman. 

Each of these opportunities builds a relationship, that can lead to spiritual conversations, that can lead to sharing about your best friend Jesus, and just maybe their commitment to Him as well.
