Why am I here?  What is life all about?  For those who have trusted God and believe on Jesus Christ as their savior, there is a clear answer to that question.  Isaiah 43:7 says, “Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.”  Revelation 4:11 states, “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”

All things are created for God’s pleasure and as Christians we are created to bring glory to God.  One of the ways to bring glory to God is to tell others about Him.  “O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.  Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works.” (Psalm 105:1-2)
-
Telling people about God involves making known His deeds and talking about His wondrous works.  That means to tell people about the amazing things that God has done.  As you do that, you get to fulfill your purpose in life as a Christian.  You get to bring glory to God as you brag on Him.
-
As Christians, it is important that we tell people that Christ has come to save us from our sins, but many people are not interested in that message because they do not even understand who God is and how wonderful He is.
-
As humans it is only natural for us to want to bring others along to our way of thinking.  For example farmers have debated with each other for almost 100 years about whether red or green tractors are better.  Before that the debate was horses, vs. mules, vs. oxen.  Today it is difficult to turn on the TV or radio without hearing a debate about who should be our next President.  The point is, each side is trying to convince the other.
-
Often we take the same approach with Christianity and sometimes it works, but other times people just feel like they are being harassed.  I grew up running green tractors and if someone came and told me how stupid I was not to have used a red tractor instead, I’d probably sink in my heals and defend  John Deere.  On the other hand, if a friend started to simply tell me how much he liked his Case/IH and how fun it was to drive and then offered to let me come and ride with him, I’d probably take him up on the offer.
-
I am not suggesting that we never enter a debate about the gospel, but there are times that it is obvious that those we are talking to are more interested in arguing than learning.  With such people it may be more beneficial to simply talk about how wonderful God is and let them understand Him better before actually going on to the next step of showing them that Jesus came to die for their sins so that they could be reconciled to a wonderful God.
-
Finally we must understand that it is not our job to argue someone into heaven.  It is our job to tell them the wonderful good news, but we cannot force them to believe it.  Some have even gone so far as to continually harass others other until they got them to pray a prayer.  That is not the gospel.   That is worldly manipulation that any high pressure salesman or bully knows how to use, and just because a prayer is said doesn’t mean anyone changed their minds.
-
Instead of trying to manipulate others, open the pages of scripture and read about the wondrous things God has done so you have something to tell others about.  Look back on you own life and remember what God has done for you.  Then share what you know about God with others and tell them that He loved us so much that He sent His son Jesus Christ to die for our sins.
