Bible/TheologyMatt's Musings

I haven’t posted in a while due to an insane work schedule over the last month ands traveling this week. God has blessed me with a 4-hour layover so I thought I’d take a moment and reflect on something that’s been eating at me today. I travel semi-regularly for work and since I work with the military, I have a wide variety of people I go on these trips with from all kinds of backgrounds. Some I have quite a bit in common with and we have a rather enjoyable time together. Others…we are polar opposites and it’s a struggle for me to be likeable. I usually try to find things in common with the other person so that I can be relatable so that we have some sort of positive interaction and develop a good interpersonal relationship, even if it only lasts for the duration of that trip. As a profound introvert, this can be excruciatingly painful for me if the gap is wide. Why do I put myself throug this? I do it for the sake of the Gospel. You see, I realize that evangelism is definitely NOT one of my spiritual gifts. I also realize that this does not absolve me from the responsibility we all have to share the Gospel and do what we can to lead others to Christ. Knowing these things, I do what I can to develop relationships so that I can create opportunities to share my faith in more personally natural ways.
