Do we only hang out with Christians?

Do we only hang out with Christians?  Do all our friends look, believe, or act like us?

What sort of person are you the least likely to witness to?  Who makes you really uncomfortable?  We all have those people.

They may have a different:

  • religion
  • political party
  • personality type
  • lifestyle
  • past or present, or both

Now let’s take an even deeper look.

They might be:

  • judgmental
  • hypocrites
  • bigots
  • loud and obnoxious
  • barely even there
  • very young
  • very old

They might:

  • smell bad
  • wear ten-thousand dollar suits

Whoever they are, wherever they are, one tie unites them: they need us to tell them about Christ and live in such a way that our faith is believable.

How much of your day is spent with non-Christians?

How much of your day that is spent with Christians is focused on energizing up for the time spent with non-Christians?

Christ says in Matthew 28:18-20 (NASB):

And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
