Day 6: Sharing God with Others
Sharing God With Others
Now that you have experienced the love of Jesus, don’t keep it to yourself…Share it! Share this great love with others who need to experience His love. Sharing God with others is really simple- just tell your story of how you decided to invite Him into your life. There is nothing more powerful than sharing your personal encounter with Jesus Christ. In today’s video, we’ll find out just how simple that can be, and how to do it.
You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father. – Matthew 5:14-16
Be a witness
Jesus’ final words to His followers here on earth are found in Acts 1:8 NIV. “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” The keyword there is “witnesses.” What is a witness? A witness is someone who tells of what they’ve seen and heard. A witness doesn’t make things up. Witnesses give their own personal experience. If you saw a car accident and the police asked you to be a witness, what would you say? You wouldn’t make things up, you would simply tell them what you saw and heard. That’s the same thing we’re called to do as Christians. Tell people what Jesus has done in your life.
- Share with your words– Talking to others about your relationship with God is one of the ways that you share God’s love with people who are hurting, lost, hopeless and discouraged.
- Share with your life– Share God through the evidence of a changed life. When others begin to see that your faith in Jesus has affected the way that you live, it provides further proof that God is indeed real. God desires that we begin to reflect a lifestyle of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control toward others.
