When trying to help someone find salvation is it best to plant a seed and let it go from there? Or is it best to press the issue? I know that some people respond best if they are pushed and some if they are allowed time. I wanted your opinion and input on this. Thanks for your time.
One scripture, I think, may answer your question.
"For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more. And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law. To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. And this I do for the gospel's sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you." (1 Corinthians 9:19-23)
To those who would respond to pressure, press. To those who would fight back against pressure, go gently. The hard part is knowing the difference.
