A recent Twitter post led me to a blog post that led met to another blog post. Read that blog at From that I was reminded of a story I like to tell about witnessing.
A Christian went to work for a company and decided that, rather than tell people he was a Christian, he would let his lifestyle show his faith. He thought that by his righteous living people would recognize his Christian faith and be drawn to him, opening the door for him to share Jesus.

The man worked for the company for more than twenty years before his first opportnity came up...he was at the retirement celebration of a man who had worked for the company for over forty years. During the retiree's party, he approached the Christian and said to him, "Son, I've been watching you since you went to work here and all those years I knew there was something different about you, and I finally figured it out. YOU'RE A HEALTH FOOD NUT, AREN'T YOU!"

Mark 16:15 says GO and PREACH the Good News. The word "preach" means, literally, "proclaim". In the God's Word translation, "So wherever you go in the world, tell everyone the Good News."

Your lifestyle tells people ony HOW you live. Your words will tell them WHY. Without the WHY, the HOW means little. Don't just show them HOW to live; tell them WHY.

God bless.
