Reference: Colossians 4:5 NIV
Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity.
My words are part of my witness, especially towards unbelievers. What I say to them or around them gives them a sample size of the effectiveness of Christ’s lordship. I also must have discernment as to when to encourage, challenge and coach. I never knew how many more opportunities I’ll have to offer salvation to them, so I must be in sync and submissive to Holy Spirit. They may turn it down but at least they won’t be turned off or tune out to the message because of my tactlessness.
