Wherever you live, work, and build relationships, you can be part of introducing others to God.
“And Jesus said to them, ‘Follow me and I will make you fishers of men.’” Matthew 4:19
You recently began a relationship with God because someone made it possible for you to hear the life changing message of Jesus Christ. This message is called the gospel, which means “good news.”
You can also have the privilege of introducing others to the God you know personally.
Read Acts 1:8
What does a witness do?
What does it mean to be a witness for Jesus?
Jesus invites us to be part of helping others to know Him. He gives us all the resources we need through His Holy Spirit living within us to share His love and forgiveness with them.
Evangelism is a word we use to describe talking to others about Jesus. It literally means “to bring good news.” Success in evangelism involves three elements:
It is important to remember that it is the Holy Spirit who helps a person see their need for Jesus. Our part is to love them, pray for them and initiate spiritual conversations. This may start with a simple question such as “Have you ever heard how you can know God personally?” or even “Can you share with me what you believe about God?”
Each time you share about God’s love, you are planting a seed. You may get to share the whole gospel message or just a part. Either way, it is God who causes the growth.
Is there someone in your life with whom you can share this good news?
The God Tools app can be a helpful tool in sharing with others how to come to know God personally.
This is only the beginning of what it means to know and follow God. May you grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ!
Jesus, thank you for giving me the opportunity to hear about you and make the decision to follow you. Thank you for inviting me to be part of helping others to know you. Please give me faith to believe that you will lead me to the people with whom you want me to share the good news. Give me the words I need to tell them about you. In your name I pray, amen.
