Recently I read an article about the many links that went into a woman’s decision to receive Christ just a short time before her death. The article is called Linking Together. This got me thinking about the many different things us Christians can do to be a link in connecting unbelievers to Christ. We don’t have to be an evangelical preacher or a great speaker. We don’t even have to be that mature in the faith yet. All we need to do is look for a link that we could be. The article talks about the one person being different links. Some of us might be one link that starts the chain leading to Christ; some of us might be the middle or the last link. Does it really matter how someone gets to Christ? All that matters is that we are linking others to Christ! Links can be in the same way as a seed that is planted. Paul says “I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase. Now he who plants and he who waters are one, and each one will receive his own reward according to his own labor.” (1 Corinthians 3:6-8) Some simple ways that we could be a “missing link” would be: handing out tracts, giving someone a Christian book, helping people in need, encourager others, demonstrate your faith always, forgive quickly, love unconditionally, you could even pray with or for someone, and don’t forget the most important one is to preach the gospel to every creature!! (Mark 16:15) I am sure that I am leaving a few ways off of the list, but you get the idea. Just remember whatever we do we need to represent Christ and glorify God in everything! So are you “linking” someone to Christ?
“Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” (1 Corinthians 10:31)
