    How to Witness to Everyone Without Being a Pushy Christian

    Ladies, as Christians we are called to witness to others. God wants to share joy in Heaven with all His children. Unfortunately, not all His children choose this end. Some prefer to choose joy now on this earth, through self-fulfillment. Then there are others who are unaware of God’s desire and don’t even know that they have a choice.

    If we have found the Truth and we know the way to salvation, then we should share that with others. It’s our Christian duty. But how do we witness to others without becoming the pushy Christian that so many non-Christians accuse us of being? Here are five ways to start you off.

    1. Be a witness. This means living the Word. And this is the best way to witness. Why? Because it’s one thing to tell someone else how they should be Godly, and another thing to show them. We need to live it genuinely and show others what it really means to be a Christian. Jesus Himself taught this to His disciples in Matthew 5:16, saying, “In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.”
    2. Don’t argue. When we get into an argument about faith, it can really put others on the defense. So, be willing to respectfully answer questions about it. Be enthusiastic about sharing the Word, but also know that arguments only lead to people shutting down. This doesn’t mean we need to agree with what’s not true. Make sure the Truth is spoken, but then back off. This makes us more approachable if we ever get into a conversation with that same person in the future.
    3. Know what you’re talking about. In 2 Timothy 3:16-17, Paul writes, “All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction and for training in righteousness, so that everyone who belongs to God may be proficient, equipped for every good work.” We can’t teach the faith if we don’t know it. So we must be proficient and knowledgeable in the faith. We need to get to know scripture, open ourselves to counsel with a priest or pastor and always be learning more.
    4. Witness for God, not ourselves. Witnessing to someone should be about God, not ourselves. Granted, we can each offer an awesome testimony to someone as a way of demonstrating how the Lord worked in our life, but ultimately we should witness about God. We are not the focus. God is. John 1:6-9 reads, “A man named John was sent from God. He came for testimony, to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him. He was not the light, but came to testify to the light. The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world.”
    5. Have good intentions. Your desire should be to share God’s amazing Word, as opposed to showing someone where they’re going wrong or showing off your own Christianity.

    Ladies, it’s not easy to witness, but it has to be done. We have to reach out to others and share God’s Truth. He’s not just our God, He’s everyone’s God, whether people deny Him or not.

    Ladies, do you have a tip for witnessing? Share it with us below.

    1. The most incredible witnessing I did was actually by accident. I did an open-mic performance of my favorite Christian song about how God helps us when we are weak. I explained what the song meant to me and then simply prayed the lyrics as I sang. I got a standing ovation. Some time later, people told me that they came to Christ because they were touched by my performance and identified closely with the song.

    2. In a public school setting, I have a lot of opportunities for witnessing. Recently a lot of it has been done just on the bus ride home. Though no one I know of has come to Christ yet, but I am glad that I have had to opportunities to share the truth with people I know. Not arguing is definitely key in witnessing to people who may not even believe in God. It is almost as if things sink in a little more to people when they realize that I am not trying to prove myself or my faith right or them wrong, but rather that I am confident in it and willing to share it without offending anyone or losing their interest. I have been told before by the people that I have witnessed to that what I have told them makes sense, more sense than what they believe or think even, which is a blessing to hear that. It is a blessing to know that God is working in their hearts and they are hearing the truth! 🙂 Joy is an amazing witnessing tool at school as well. 🙂 I hear from so many people that I am the happiest girl in school and that they always see me smiling. I look forward to the day when someone asks me why I am joyful so I can explain where my happiness comes from, knowing that Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior and that God is always with me. 🙂

    3. I have been trying to tell my best friend about god, and gave her an old bible or mind, she asks a lot of questions about god and heaven, and I prayed with her, but she says she believes but doesn’t she kind of believes that we get sent back down to earth when we die to re do what we have done wrong, So i have been praying for her, and just loving her where she is at, I know god has a perfect timing for him to make his self know to her
