Be An Example of Charm and Class – Colossians 4:5-6

“Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time. Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.” The Apostle Paul encourages the Colossian Christians to be what we would call  “charming” or “classy” to non-Christians. Their conversation should be polite toward others and  filled with wisdom and understanding about the gospel message. Paul’s comments assume that the Colossian believers regularly interact with non-believers in their local community. Paul wants the Colossian Christians to make a good impression on non-believers in a way that would commend the gospel to them. To win people to Jesus, you must be an example in your behavior, conduct, and conversation of the love and grace of God. The best way for non-believers to find Jesus is to see Him in you!
