What does workplace evangelism look like? The idea of witnessing and preaching the Gospel to your co-workers can be intimidating to some. At the same time, there’s no question that the place where we spend a great deal of our time is ripe for (and very much in need of) the harvest.
In all honesty, there may be times when we should be having those sometimes awkward conversations with our co-workers about Jesus Christ and the Gospel.
Regardless, our efforts in evangelism start with glorifying God in the workplace. What does that look like? That’s the question Jim Wood deals with in this video. It may look a little different for all of us, but the bottom line is that foundation for how we evangelize is the example we bring through our actions. As Christians we should have a strong work ethic, hold high moral standards for ourselves, and be intentional about how we can use our work to bring positive change to our communities (and the world).
Here’s a little challenge for you. Get together with a few other Christians in your workplace, and brainstorm what this looks like. Answer the question, “How do we glorify God in our workplace?” Then develop an action plan and hold each other accountable.When you take advantage of every opportunity to glorify God in your work, the evangelism opportunities will follow.
How to Share Your Faith at Work
Let’s admit it: It can be awkward to share our faith at work. The fear of damaging relationships and making the workplace that much more difficult (we do, after all, have to deal with these people on a daily basis). The fear of repercussions from those we work for. The fear of coming across as, well, just weird. In the stories found in How to Share Your Faith at Work, we find practical ways to naturally share with people the thing that is most precious in our lives – our relationship with Jesus Christ.
