Loving Our Neighbors


                                                                     “Go into the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” Mark 16:15

Bible“But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,” – 1 Peter 3:15

As you are praying and caring, look for natural opportunities to share your life and faith. Evangelism is the act of proclaiming the gospel, the Good News of Jesus Christ, but it begins by listening. The people you meet will have their own stories to tell. By listening, you will gain insight into their needs and be able to assess how best to share the Good news of Jesus Christ. After listening to someone’s story, you may have a similar experience to share. Or perhaps you could tell about when you were first introduced to Jesus Christ and heard the Good News.

Consider giving them a gift that explains the gospel like the JESUS Video or a gospel tract.

Also, be prepared to share your own personal testimony. God will give you chances to share your testimony that are natural and unique.

As you embrace these opportunities and let your light shine in a sensitive way, you’ll see how the love of Christ can transform those around you!

We recognize many Christians have fear when talking about sharing their faith. Remember Jesus Christ has already been working in many peoples lives drawing them into a relationship with Him. We Christ followers are appointed to assist God in His great work.
