Sharing the good news of Jesus is one of the most important things we can do. So how do we actually share your faith? How can you reach out with ought freaking out? Here are a few steps you can take to help to share your faith effectively:
PRAY FOR COURAGE. Before you try to share the gospel with a friend, ask God to give you boldness. The Apostle Paul asked the believes in Ephesus to "Pray also for me, that the message may be given to me when I open my mouth to make known the boldness the mystery of the gospel... Pray I might be bold enough in Him to speak as I should" (Ephesians 6:19-20).
BRING IT UP. After you have prayed for boldness, strike up a conversation with your friend. You can ask question that gets him talking, such as "What are your spiritual beliefs? or "Do you think you will go o heaven when you die? Why? After he/she has shared their thought you can share what you believe and why.
EXPLAIN THE GOSPEL. The word gospel means' good news." Its the good news that God created us to fellowship in Him. Although sin has broken that fellowship, it can be restored through faith in Jesus. When Jesus died, He paid the price for our sins, suffering in our place. When He rose from the dead, He proved that He was who He claimed to be-the son of God. Eternal life is not earned by our good deeds but is received as a free gift on the basis of our faith in Jesus (Ephesians 2:10).
ASK HIM TO RESPOND. After you have shared the gospel with your friend, ask him whether or not he is ready to trust in Jesus as his Savior. Remember that merely saying a prayer never saved anybody. Only genuine faith in Jesus saves us from our sins.
HELP HIM GROW. If your friend trusts in Jesus as Savior, help get him plugged into a church/youth group where he can grow in his relationship with God and the family of God. You also want to equip him to share his faith with his friends. Sharing your faith is easier than you may think. It is sharing the best news on the planet with those you know! Pray and open your mouth. The Holy Spirit will give you the words to say (John 14:26)!
