Walk the Walk

"Conduct yourselves with wisdom toward outsiders, making the most of the opportunity. Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person." - Colossians 4:2-6

Many of us are familiar with the cliche, "if you're going to talk the talk, you'd better walk the walk." This cliche might be trite, but it is true for the life of a Christian. When Paul says that we are to walk with wisdom toward outsiders, he means that we are to live in line with God's Word so that those who are not Christians will see the beauty of our lives and relationships that reflect Jesus Christ. They ought to be able to see the fruit of the Spirit in us which should draw them to the Savior. When God has their attention, then we talk and "let our speech always be with grace." We know that time is short, and the future is uncertain. If the door opens today, take the opportunity to have a Gospel conversation with another person.

Does the way you live your life attract people to Jesus?

Just the Gospel

"Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving; praying at the same time for us as well, that God will open up to us a door for the word, so that we may speak forth the mystery of Christ, for which I have also been imprisoned; that I may make it clear in the way I ought to speak."                  - Colossians 4:2-4

The Good News of Jesus Christ is a precious message and one that we need to treat properly. Too often in today's practice of Christianity, the Gospel is a product that is being marketed so its truths can be compromised in order to make it acceptable to the masses. In the verse above, Paul was so concerned about how he handled the truth of the Gospel that he asked the Colossians to pray that he would proclaim the Gospel clearly and make its truths evident to others. Like Paul, we want to be sure to present the Gospel clearly without distortion in order to avoid sharing a false gospel. The message is not the Gospel plus something else. The message is JUST the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Is there someone on your heart right now who you know needs to hear the Gospel?
