Try to think back about your conversations this past week. Did you talk about the latest movie you saw or the newest CD you got? Did you talk about what happened on your favorite TV Show or about something that happened at work or school? Did you talk about your fishing trip or golf? Did you have an argument with your spouse over something insignificant or significant? Did you tell someone a humorous story or talk about the not so funny price of gas? What did you talk about?
One of the interesting things about Paul is that the topic of his conversation almost always included JESUS. Every few verses of Acts 18 remind us that Paul was talking about or preaching about Jesus every where he went!
Granted, God may not have the same design for your life as He did for Paul, but one thing Scripture teaches is that regardless of your vocation – you’re to be a witness for Jesus Christ. A witness is someone to tells their personal experience; what they’ve seen, heard and know. As followers of Christ we’re to tell what we’ve seen, heard and know.
Being a witness involves how you live AND WHAT YOU SAY. So the question I’m dealing with and I hope you’re dealing with after reading this is simply: “How often is the topic of my conversation about Jesus?” In other words, how often do I bring up what Jesus has done and is doing in my life in my normal conversation at work, home, school, etc?
