Make Your Step - Building Bridges

Our lives are full. Sometimes to the exclusion of building bridges with non-believers around us. Be proactive in looking for ways you can share hope with those who have no eternal hope.

Recently, a person who took the Tell Someone challenge went to visit a patient in the hospital. No one had visited him. His hospitalization brought him face to face with his mortality, and he sought her out to ask for spiritual support. She engaged in conversation with him, asked questions, didn't push an agenda but sought to understand his thought process and how he came to his conclusions.

He is out of the hospital, but as a result of her visits they are still conversing. He has not yet accepted Christ. In fact, a portion of their talk went like this: “'I think He {Jesus} might have had a screw loose, maybe.' He peered closely at me. Obviously, that was a leading comment to provoke a reaction. I shrugged. 'His family said the same thing. But in the end, they saw what He did, they heard what He said, and they were convinced.'"

Her gentle response has kept the thread alive. God opens the eyes of the heart and gives faith to believe. We can share God's words of truth to keep the conversation going.
