I am meeting weekly one-on-one with a non-Christian friend to go through 40 Days of Purpose. I have shared the gospel with him many times but he says he has no need for it.
He has a good job, family with 2 kids, nice comfortable suburban lifestyle and everything’s going well. He considers himself a “good person” and doesn’t do anything horrible. He does not have a longing in his heart for “something more” but is perfectly content with his life and where it is going. When I asked him why he’s doing the 40 Days of Purpose he says it’s to make him a good/better person. He sees all religions as training to do more good, that’s all.
What can I do or say to help him see the need for a savior? He is not the “drowning man who needs a life preserver”. He does not have an emptiness in his heart nor a longing for a greater purpose. He does not have any concern about eternal things. He’s just happy and contented to be where he is.
Jesus said, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick”. Should I just give up on him and move on? “If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, leave that home or town and shake the dust off your feet”
