Are You Too Christian for Non-Christians?

Are You Too Christian for Non-Christians?

Rick Segal:

For most Christians, the workplace is the place where we will spend the most time with unbelieving people. Work requires us to collaborate with others to see it to completion. Relationships in the workplace are sometimes even easier to develop than with family members. You share more time and, in time, more in common. Don’t allow your Christianity to be a wedge that separates you from co-workers. You needn’t compromise your values, nor engage in any unbiblical activities to secure a co-worker’s esteem or affection, but you do need to take an active interest in your coworkers as fellow human beings, not just the other spokes in a wheel you happen to share. Appreciate that people in the workplace are not the means of getting your work done, they are the objects of your work as an ambassador for Christ.

We often get so busy with our programs that we forget that we have people who haven’t repented of their sins all around us. Find those people in your life, get to know them and share Christ. This will be the beginning of their discipleship journey.
