Occasions to Witness

Today’s Reflection

PAUL SHOWS that we do not have to create occasions or special circumstances to share the gospel. We can share it anywhere. Some of the best evangelism we can offer comes from sharing how responding to the gospel directs our daily decisions. Paul did not go to jail so he could share the gospel with Roman guards, but, once there, he uses the occasion to witness.
