4. Hang out with them again, and eventually bring up spiritual things in your conversation.
At this point, you have built some rapport with the co-worker. Continue to cultivate that relationship. Pray for the Holy Spirit to give you wisdom and discernment pertaining to the timing of when to bring up spiritual things.
A couple of simple questions to ask in order to transition conversation to God are the following:
- Do you go to church anywhere?
- What was the most common religion where you were raised?
- Invite them to Christ with a clear presentation of the Gospel, or invite them to an event at your church where you know the Gospel will be shared.
Ask the Spirit of God to give you boldness, wisdom and clarity of speech, and ask Him to give your co-worker an open and tender heart to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
If you share the Gospel with them, use something like the Three Circles approach, or something more conversational like that.
If you invite them to an event at your church where you know the Gospel will be shared, be positive that the Gospel will be clearly proclaimed. After they attend, grab a meal with them and follow up with them about it.
It is at this moment, you should try to be more aggressive in leading them to Christ. Straight up ask them, “Do you want to receive Jesus Christ as your savior right now?”
These five steps, if followed, could help you to truly reach lost people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ for eternity. Now, it is time to do it. Let’s go!
