Why do we share the gospel? Here are four reasons that might change how you think about evangelism. We share the gospel ...
Why do we exist? To bring glory to God. What is glory? Something like fame.
We make God famous when we tell others about who He is and the good things He has done. When people know Jesus, God’s glory is known and shown (2 Corinthians 4:5-6).
Have you shared your story of what Jesus has done in your life?
Paul, writing to the Christians in Ephesus, reminds them that once they were “without hope and without God in the world” (Ephesians 2:12, New International Version). Their situation was the worst it could possibly be: They were “dead in [their] transgressions and sins” (Ephesians 2:1, NIV).
But God, full of love and mercy, reached out and brought them new life in Jesus (Ephesians 2:4-5). When we share the gospel, we offer the hope that can only be found in Christ.
Which of your family members, friends or neighbors have yet to experience the hope God offers?
God has entrusted us with the privilege of being His ambassadors, or spokespeople.
Paul describes it this way in 2 Corinthians 5:18-20 (NIV):
“All this is from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to Himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And He has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making His appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.”
What would happen if you began your day thinking, “I am God’s ambassador”?
The author of 1 John says, “We write this to make our joy complete” (1 John 1:4, NIV). Not only did talking about Jesus bring him joy but so did the anticipation that others would share in the joy of knowing Jesus. If we are enjoying our relationship with Christ, we can’t help but want others to be part of the community that knows and experiences God’s love and grace.
Whom do you want to experience this joy?
