Simple Ways to Share the Gospel
Christians are all called to spread the Gospel to the whole world, but many assume that this kind of work is only for those who are called in the ministry of evangelization like the missionaries and the evangelists but Jesus calls each of us to spread the Good News.
During my teenage years, I felt like only evangelists were called to tell people the Good News. I thought that I could be a Christian without telling others about Christ. I felt that way despite the fact that I grew up in the church and my parents are both in the ministry of sharing God’s word. I still found it hard to share the Gospel, even to my closest friends and classmates. Looking back, I believed I was afraid to be rejected, to be ridiculed and to be the subject of bullying.
Later on, I found out that sharing God’s word is not a hard task at all. You don’t have to travel afar and share the Good News to strangers in a strange land, although, I highly salute all the commitment of our Missionaries, because as they say, mission is not only going across the ocean, most of the time it’s just across your street or even inside your home.
Today, I’ll share to you simple ways that I have been able to share Jesus with others, especially with my family, friends and neighbors.
Invite Them – Invite people to church especially during events and church celebrations like Christmas and Easter. Kids can also invite others during VBS and youth can invite each other to youth activities. Another wonderful opportunity is to invite others to a concert or musical, especially if you are involved.
Technology – Technology has been getting everyone connected, so why not use this medium to share Jesus to others. You can post verses or a story of how Christ has worked in your life on your social media or you can send a friend an email or a message of encouragement thru the word of God. With the vast variety of your audience, you can never know who needs an inspiring word. We are inviting you to join us in our #30DaysofBibleScripture. Click here for details and join us as we spread the word of God thru social media one Bible Scripture at a time.
Give a Gift – Who doesn’t want a present? Everyone loves a gift. So why not use this excuse to share Jesus to your friends and others. When you want to appreciate a colleague or a friend, why give him a Christian gift, or when you’re going to give a birthday gift, why not give a Christian book.
Gospel Tracts – I know it sounds old and traditional but tracts have been one of best tools in sharing the Word of God. Besides, as the world changes so is the design of the Gospel tracts. Here at Memory Cross, we design Gospel tracts that you will never be ashamed to share with others and that whoever receives it will surely find it amazing and unique enough to read the message. We design tracts for Mission Trips, tracts that are good for adults, tracts that will teach kids bible scriptures and stories and we even have cards for Special Occasions and Holidays. So next time, whether you are going on an outreach program, or you want to send cards to your loved ones or even you just want to say Thank You to the waiter who served you, try giving out Memory Cross Cards. You’ll be amaze how effective this piece of paper can be in spreading the Word of God in a fun and creative way.
Whether you choose to follow all of these simple steps or you opt even for just one, I urge you to pray for everyone who you might touch. Pray that God will reveal Himself to them and that your action will create an impact in their lives that will lead them to Christ. I believe, no one goes to heaven blindfolded. God will always find a way to reveal the gift of Salvation. Let us be a channel of God’s way love.
Lastly, for me the best way to share Jesus to others is to become a good example to others. Be the Christian that God wants you to be and live a life that will shine the love of God. Who knows, your life is the only bible that others get to read.
