A Call to Disciple in Everyday Life
Recently, InterVarsity hosted Matthew Brima, the General Secretary of SLEFES, an IFES movement, and he shared that witnessing should be a constant.
“God’s call to us was to express faith in all we do, in all of life. So our witness for the Gospel was not tied to a certain time, a certain place, doing certain activities. Witnessing for Christ entails all of life. Sitting at the dinner table with my kids, should reflect my faith. Talking to my wife when nobody is there, should reflect that. So, it is a greater awareness of what is the Gospel.”
Brima continues to say that he sees this awareness growing in the Church. Many people are coming to know Christ through a coworker or a friend or a neighbor. Christians aren’t so much planning for witnessing, they just are living out their faith.
Brima himself came to faith through someone living out their faith where God placed them.
