We may love or hate it, but we can’t avoid Halloween—it comes around every year.
As you talk with your friends, neighbors, and co-workers about all the revelry, don’t miss these two divine opportunities.
1. Build Relationships.
Halloween is one of the few times when the whole neighborhood comes knocking. It’s not always easy to build relationships, but this one’s a no-brainer. Sit on your porch and talk to everyone who comes to you. It’s a stepping stone to deepen relationships, which will show you care and, in turn, may provide opportunities to share your faith.
2. Exult in Christ’s victory over evil.
People might look at you funny if you walked around talking about your “victory in Christ” every week. Halloween, though, provides a natural opportunity to talk about good triumphing over evil. What an opportunity to encourage ourselves, our family, and fellow believers with the message that our God is victorious (cf. 1 Cor. 15:57)! We don’t need to fear what comes our way because our sovereign God is always with us. And not only do we have nothing to fear October 31st, but we can have a great time sharing the gospel in many creative ways.
