Do I introduce people to Jesus as Andrew did to his brother Peter (Jn 1:40-42). Having friendships with the unsaved is one of the most effective ways to win the lost to Jesus as they can observe your lifestyle, and then you are able to assist in the necessary ongoing follow-up. Afters Paul's conversion the disciples were understandably hesitant to meet this persecutor of Christians till Barnabas bridged the gap (Act 9:26-28). Do I intentionally and actively bring together those who are aloof or are on the fringes of a group and get them vitally connected so they interact with a wider circle of people?
Luke gives a short foreword or introduction at the start of the gospel account he wrote, “so that you may know the certainty of the things you have been taught” (Lk 1:1-4).
