Often we think of the things we do for God as something to add to all of our regular activities.

You may be looking at a calendar full of school and church commitments, soccer games, and dentist appointments and be wondering, “How am I going to add sharing my faith to this?”

Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation. Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky (Philippians  2:14-15).

The answer to that question is to be intentional about keeping God in focus no matter what you are doing. Any situation where you’re already committing your time and energy can offer opportunities to tell others about God.

You’ve probably heard the quote, “Your life may be the only Bible someone will ever read.” It can be an intimidating thought. Whether you are aware of it or not, you’re witnessing about Jesus everywhere you go and every time you open your mouth. This is why it’s so important to rely on the Holy Spirit throughout your day.

On our own we’d be terrible representatives of Christ. But when we entrust ourselves to God moment by moment, repenting when we mess up and returning to what God would have us do in his strength, our lives can be a powerful witness.
