Taking every opportunity to bless others

Conduct yourselves with wisdom toward outsiders, making the most of the opportunity. Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person. Colossians 4:5-6

God wants to use us to influence others. The way we live your lives can be used by God to draw others to Him. The Apostle Paul reminded Christians how important that they live consistent with what they believe. Our conviction will impact how we behave. If we claim that we are followers of Christ we are admonished to be very careful in the way we live for our lives could either influenced others toward Christ or have them repel Christ. Everything we say and do influences others and can have an impact on our ability to reach people for Christ. If your speech and your actions toward others are not characterized by grace, you will not be of much influence for Christ. The point is if you continue to live out your life like everyone else in the world, you will not have the opportunity to be a good witness for Christ. God is calling you as His child to conduct yourselves with wisdom. As Paul wrote to the church at Corinth, believers’ lives at times can become the only bible that others will read. “You yourselves are our letter…known and read by everyone” (2 Cor. 3:2). You are not called to be perfect for it is not attainable in this side of the world. But you are called to make the most of every opportunity to be a positive influence for Christ. Be ready to admit your shortcomings and your weaknesses before God and ask Him to give you wisdom so that you can bring glory to His Name. How we relate with others should help them see that we have something that we can offer to them that can make a difference in their lives. It’s either you can be your own worst enemy or you can be a real blessing. Whether you like it or not, you will have an influence to others. Be willing to be used by God so you can minister to others in His name and for His glory. “Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person.”
