Sharing Christ with others should be something we are enthusiast about. Yet, if you’re like me, fear keeps you from leading anyone to Christ.
Reading Show Me How to Share Christ in the Workplace has given me a little more confidence to move forward in my witnessing.
- First, by showing me how I can share my testimony. I don’t feel I am living in a way that would convince anyone to follow Christ. Part of the difficulty also is because I am shy when it comes to sharing my beliefs, afraid of rejection. The other part was not knowing what to share about myself and my salvation story. The authors gives you a step by step outline of what to share and even provides another’s example.
- Second, by reminding me of the importance of living a life that will “draw them closer to Christ, not drive them from Him”. [page 44] I’ve ask God’s forgiveness for my wayward walk lately and will be looking to him on a daily basis as I live according to His Word. This will mean some difficult adjustments in my daily living, but it will so be worth seeing friends and co-workers come to know Jesus Christ as their Savior.
- Third, not only have I been given some practical advise within the workplace, I can be a great witness to extended family and friends. As I look around me, I know of family who think I’m just a good person. They don’t know the motivation behind my striving to do right. They don’t now my personal Savior as I do. I need to be more bold about sharing Him with others.
There is more to this book than I’ve shared above, but those are the key things that helped me with my struggle as a wanna-be-witness.
I received a copy of this book from TBB Media in exchange for my honest review.
About the Book
Two kinds of Christians go to work. For the first person, hisworkplace is his ministry. For the second, his workplace is nothing more than a job. In truth, it should be both—the workplace is where a Christian not only goes to perform his job but also a place to engage in his ministry.
In his timely and insightful new book, Show Me How to Share Christ in the Workplace (Fall 2012 Kregel), evangelist and author Dr. Larry Moyer challenges every committed Christian to recognize that he or she is in full-time ministry. “The concept that professional, paid Christian workers such as pastors, music directors and youth workers are the only ones in ministry could not be further from the truth. We’re all in ministry 24/7.” To balance obligations to our employer and our commitment to share Christ, Moyer comments, “The Bible tells us how to get to heaven. It also tells us how to take those in the workplace along with us. So when trying to impact the workplace for Christ, the Bible is the place to start.”

According to Moyer, “Your workplace is not merely your job; it‘s your ministry. Let‘s learn to use that job to populate heaven. Then you will have had the greatest ministry of all. Your workplace will not only be the means of meeting temporary needs such as putting food on the table or providing funds for a vacation. It will also count for something eternal—introducing those you work with to the only One who can give them life that never ends.”
