Faith Sharing Tip: Bring Church out of the Building

By: Morag Paton

Have you ever got stuck thinking that you need to bring people to church for them to hear about Jesus? While church is a great place to gather, it’s important that we don’t let the mindset creep in that people need to come to church to get to know Jesus.

As a follower of Jesus, you are a living, walking, talking example of the church in action.

We see examples of this throughout the Bible. In the many places Jesus and his disciples went, they connected with people along the way. Acts 16:16–34 is a great example of the influence that Paul and Silas had with many people coming to faith.

We recently chatted with *Tom on Messenger. After some conversation he made a commitment to follow Jesus, and we got him connected into a local church. He was so grateful to have someone to chat to and have his questions answered. He commented at one point “I have so many questions as maybe you can tell haha. It’s actually quite hard to find Christians in everyday life on this end.”

Who are the people in your world that don’t know Jesus, that need to get to know you? Are you a Christian that is easy to find?
