‘Ramadan brings particular opportunity to ask Muslim colleagues, friends, and neighbours about their beliefs. Ask them what fasting means to them. Ask them what it is like to be a Muslim in the society where they live. Don’t be surprised if you’re invited to an iftar (fast-breaking) meal!’ John*, a Christian serving at a university in the Middle East.
Let us pray for many followers of Jesus Christ to connect with Muslims during Ramadan. May the Lord open doors for friendship, deep spiritual conversations and occasions to share the gospel of grace.
Live wisely among those who are not believers, and make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be gracious and attractive so that you will have the right response for everyone. Colossians 4:5-6 (NLT)
