How can we reach others for Christ?

We meet people where they are just as Jesus did.  His apostles did not come to him.  He went to them. We talk to people in terms they understand just as Jesus did.  In Matthew 4:18-22 Jesus calls four fishermen to be his disciples. He told them he’d make them “fishers of men” (Matt 4:19).

Do you know what terms someone of another faith would understand?

Studying other religions help us to better understand the unbelievers we seek to evangelize. If you wish to share the gospel with a Buddhist, for example, it is helpful to realize that this religion believes in reincarnation. An evangelistic approach that focuses on answering, "Do you know for sure if you'll go to heaven when you die?" is unhelpful for a person who thinks he or she will come back in another form.  We need to meet people where they are.  That means understanding where they are religiously. Rather than suggesting that their faith and traditions are unimportant or have no value, I can show that I have a basic understanding of their beliefs and how they differ from mine.

On Sunday mornings before church Chris Tyburski and Steve Rowe will be starting a series to examine the religions surrounding us around the Seattle area.  We will be covering Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jehovah Witness, Mormonism, and Catholicism.

These are the people that we meet at school or work.  They are precious souls that Christ died for.  We can be his hands and mouth in helping to reach them.
