Bringing the Gospel to Our Muslim Neighbors

When I taught school, I found myself drawn to the Muslim girls. Most of them were smart and kind. But how could I be a Light to this religion?

I read the book Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus, by Nabeel Qureshi. Nabeel was a faithful and devout Muslim when he developed a relationship with a Christian classmate. Over several years, the two friends discussed the authenticity of Christian and Muslim beliefs. Eventually, Nabeel gave his life to Christ and became a Christian minister. If you have a Muslim friend or neighbor, this book will be a great help to you. Here is a link to Nabeel’s testimony.

Sharing the Gospel may require more than knocking on doors. It could require a long-time commitment to praying for and walking alongside another human being whom God has put in your path.

Think about the Parable of the Good Samaritan. A Samaritan was walking along and there on his path was a man in need of help. Who has God put in your path?

In the parable of the Good Samaritan, Jesus says,

‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ Luke 10:27 NIV

Read The Parable of the Good Samaritan here.

Do you know a Muslim who needs Christ? Has God put it on your heart to reach out to them? Are you willing? God has a plan for spreading the Gospel. Many will come to know Jesus through friendship with an individual Christian.

No matter what the “Naysayers” claim, the Gospel will continue to spread globally because God’s purposes will be fulfilled!

Reaching Muslim Women

Did you know that there are some sects of Islam in which women are not allowed to speak to men other than their husbands? Obviously, this would remove the opportunity for any Christian man to share the gospel with a Muslim woman.

But if Christian women are trained to know why Islam is false and Christianity is true, they will be well equipped to share the Gospel with our Muslim friends. There are many good resources available. Some are listed below. But you can start by reaching out and being a friend.

No longer do we have to travel across the world to share the Gospel with Muslims. In my town of Bowling Green, Kentucky it is estimated that over 10% of the town’s population has Bosnian heritage and most Bosnians are Muslim. And many immigrants from other countries also live here, many of whom are Muslim.

As we reach out to love our neighbors, many opportunities to share the Gospel will arise. You can find many good resources to learn about sharing your faith with our Muslim friends at Reasoned Cases for Christ and Think Divinely.

 “… if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. ” 1 Corinthians 13:2 NIV

“But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect …” 1 Peter 3:15 ESV

Our Role As God’s Ambassador

Do you sometimes feel like you don’t fit in? You may need to remind yourself that if you are a follower of Jesus Christ, this world is not your home. Your home is in heaven and you are an ambassador for Christ in a foreign land.

“We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us.” 2 Corinthians 5:20 NIV

“Friends, this world is not your home, so don’t make yourselves cozy in it. Don’t indulge your ego at the expense of your soul. Live an exemplary life among the natives so that your actions will refute their prejudices. Then they’ll be won over to God’s side and be there to join in the celebration when he arrives.” 1 Peter 2:11-12 The Message

An ambassador is a “diplomatic official of the highest rank sent by one sovereign or state to another as its resident representative”.¹

We must remind ourselves that this is our role. We are ambassadors sent by God. I think it helps us to live a life a worthy of our calling when we think of ourselves as an ambassador.

“But all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ [making us acceptable to Him] and gave us the ministry of reconciliation [so that by our example we might bring others to Him]” 2 Corinthians 5:18 AMP

An ambassador is sent to a foreign land to reflect the official message of his country. God has sent us into the world with the message of reconciliation.

“… we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel [that tells the good news of salvation through faith in Christ…” 1 Thessalonians 2:4 AMP

However, actions speak louder than words. Talking about Jesus is important, but how we live speaks louder than our words. Caring about others is vital.

 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.  By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:34-35

“Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ…” Ephesians 5:2 NLT

Mono Made Me Do It!

I was very sick and couldn’t get out of bed for two weeks. It was mononucleosis.

While I spent my days (and nights) in bed, a song I learned as a child kept playing in my head. I hadn’t thought of it in years. Maybe you know it. It goes like this – “This little light of mine. I’m gonna let it shine… Hide it under a bushel? NO! I’m gonna let it shine!”

God had my attention. But what did it mean?

“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel … Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16 KJV

That’s when it hit me! “I’m a closet Christian!” My light is hidden under a bushel!”  All the wonderful things God has done in my life were meant to bring glory to God. 

I was convicted in my spirit for being silent, a Christian who kept her light “under a bushel.”

Feeling convicted about my mostly private relationship with the Lord, the idea to write a blog crept into my mind. I had heard of blogging, but I knew nothing about it and had never thought about reading one, much less writing one.

Before long, I was convinced. The Lord was giving me a compelling desire to write about my Christian journey. 

Determined to end my silence, I proclaim the name of Jesus. I write to encourage real Christian women who have real-life problems, women who (like me) are far from perfect. I want to proclaim the Lord’s love, faithfulness, and mercy to all who will listen.

I blog, to share the unfathomable love and mercy God has showered on me, a sinner, undeserving, and saved by grace.

“I pray that you, being rooted and established in love,  may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,  and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:17-18
