WE ARE FIREPROOF!!! -Pillar
How should I witness to my coworkers?
When we interact with people on a daily basis, we have many opportunities
for sharing our faith. First, be sure you are respectful to your employer
and set a good example in your work ethic by working "as to the Lord"
When others around you grumble and complain, if you have a calm, forgiving,
steadfast spirit, it will make an impression. As you respond in a Christ-like
way to angry coworkers and stressful circumstances, people will see a
difference in your life. Always be friendly and courteous, and show genuine
interest in your coworkers’ lives. Invite them out to lunch to get
better acquainted. Share their joys and sorrows by congratulating them
in their good times and offering to pray for them in their bad times.
Be sure you do pray for them, then follow up by asking them about the
situation you prayed for. They will be moved by your concern. If coworkers
are discussing what they did during the previous weekend, you can share
your excitement about attending church services or a special church event.
Ask others if they have any plans for celebrating Christmas or Easter;
be nonjudgmental of their answer, but be ready (if asked) to explain why
you celebrate as you do.
Displaying a favorite Scripture or a devotional calendar, or reading your
Bible during lunchtime, may prompt others to inquire about your faith.
Bringing home-baked goods or leaving a small gift with a note on a coworker’s
desk can sometimes have a greater impact than a thousand eloquent sermons.
We can show our faith by our works. Others may not like a tree of righteousness,
but they cannot help but like its fruit. Pray for opportunities to share
the gospel, being careful not to infringe on your boss’s time.
