HOW TO TREAT UNBELIEVERS

Colossians 4:5-6

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16

Many people have become Christians due to the influence of a Christian friend or coworker. If you ask them what was the predominant characteristic of the individual who attracted them to Christ, most would allude to a keen, UNWORLDLY sense of love and acceptance.

Treating the unbeliever in a biblical fashion is not an easy chore for some Christians. We operate on such different standards and think on such contrasting wavelengths that compatibility can be quite difficult. Despite such differences, God often uses ordinary Christians as His instruments to proclaim the gospel of Christ.

The non-Christian is just like you before you were saved, dead in sin and separated from God. The love of God can be clearly communicated to the unbeliever through upright conduct, positive conversation, and a servant spirit.

Don’t judge those around you who are not Christians. Focus instead on releasing the love of Christ through your daily lifestyle.

Everybody needs the Lord—even people who seemingly resist all overtures. The love and grace of God expressed through your words and deeds can be amazingly used by Him in a most wonderful way.

Lord, help me to express Your love and grace through kind words and deeds today.
