How do I speak to a neighbour about her need for Christ in her life?

She is going through a very rough time in her life. She has cancer and hepatitis. She's just gotten out of my hospital for a nervous breakdown. She has no family support. I too have health struggles but I couldn't imagine facing them without the love and strength of our Lord.

My guess is that you have already spoken to her. If you cared enough to write this question, she knows of your love and concern.

People know that we are Christians because of our love, not any technique or process.

Love puts us to work:
---We don't ask, "Is there anything I can do?" Like a good waitress, we re-fill the water glass because we see it is in need.

--- If your church has a missions or outreach group, make sure she has some meals for a season of time.

---she may want company on Doctor visits.

---The men of your church can see that her yard is kept and any physical needs of her house are in order.

---The youth can come up with a creative offering as can the children

---Literature on subject matter of interest to her can be delivered.

---After all this, a loving, caring, experienced minister can share the good news with her. She may already be a Christian. Let her talk about her faith freely to discover the meaning of that faith.

It sounds like you and your church may well become her loving family. (James 2:14-26)
