Since I was twelve I accepted Christ. I moved in with my mother and her girlfriend when I turned 19 years old and since I turned 20 I have been going to church regularly. Normally this doesn't cause a riff in my family because I don't PUSH. They ask me "how was church?" and I talk to them until I can see them getting tired. They have been asking more questions now that they see that after so many years this Christian thing isn't just a phase. In fact, I can see the salvation of my family in this Spirit and I know that it will happen in God's time.
What I am struggling with is this: Currently my church is going to do a new evangelism training. We begin by evangelising our family members. I'm not sure they will except that this is a delicate thing and that it will take time to save them.
The sad thing about it is this, I think my whole family would be Christians if some Christians weren't judgemental and/or hypocritical. They know that their lifestyle is . a sin and so they don't go. They also know that Christians are not perfect, so they don't go.
What I have been trying to get them to understand is that its not about the people, its about the Lord, but then they always refute saying "well if that's the case I can just stay at home."
I want to hear your struggles and triumphs in evangelising your own family.
