The Bible urges Christians to live out the Gospel by our actions and words. So how do we communicate effectively with those who do not know Christ? Teaching on acting wisely and seizing every opportunity with those outside the faith, Alistair Begg explains how to answer questions appropriately, how to be gracious without being cliché, and why love must reach across racial and cultural boundaries.
2Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. 3At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison— 4that I may make it clear, which is how I ought to speak.
5Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time. 6Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.
