This week, Luis talks about how to reach the strangers in your life. Strangers can range from new employees, to foreigners, or people we may meet on a bus! They could even be our next door neighbors. How do we reach them? How to we talk to them about Jesus? Luis answers these questions in this series.
When a new family moves into a neighborhood people react in different ways. There are those who ignore them, there are those who observe them from a distance, and then there are those who want to meet them and will sometimes bring a plate of cookies or a small house-warming gift and introduce themselves to the new family on the block. New neighbors are an excellent opportunity to share the good news of Jesus Christ with strangers.
Jesus reached hundreds of people who were strangers. In fact in John people even ask Him, “Who are you?” Sometimes we feel we need to cultivate a relationship with someone before we can broach the topic of Jesus but that is not how Jesus did it. He went city to city without invitation and shared the good news. So we can do the same with strangers in our neighborhoods. The new person on the block, or in the apartment complex can be a great opportunity to initiate a conversation and relationship with someone who we might otherwise never meet.
This month let’s be on the alert for someone new entering our world and seize the opportunity to approach them with the good news of Jesus by being a loving neighbor. Who knows they might even already be followers of Christ and become a new friend. But we won’t know until we ask. This is Luis Palau.
