There are many ways to share the Gospel message with your neighbors. For the most part, it will come naturally as you develop a relationship with them,but it also good to be prepared.Study various tract presentations and practice sharing your own personal testimony.Ask the Holy Spirit to give you the words to say, the opportunity and the right time to talk with your neighbors about giving their hearts and lives to Christ.

Scripture references for sharing:

  • 2 Corinthians 5:20 “So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, ‘Come back to God!’”
  • 2 Corinthians 2:14-16 “But thank God! He has made us his captives and continues to lead us along in Christ’s triumphal procession. Now he uses us to spread the knowledge of Christ everywhere, like a sweet perfume. Our lives are a Christ-like fragrance rising up to God. But this fragrance is perceived differently by those who are being saved and by those who are perishing. To those who are perishing, we are a dreadful smell of death and doom. But to those who are being saved, we are a life-giving perfume. And who is adequate for such a task as this?”
  • Colossians 4:2-4 “Devote yourselves to prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart. Pray for us, too, that God will give us many opportunities to speak about his mysterious plan concerning Christ. That is why I am here in chains. Pray that I will proclaim this message as clearly as I should.”
  • Zechariah 8:16 “These are the things which you should do: speak the truth to one another; judge with truth and judgment for peace in your gates.”

IDEAS for SHARING

  • Seek natural opportunities to share your faith in Christ. Share a portion of God's Word when appropriate. Pray and decide what is right — and when to share more!
  • Be prepared to share the JESUS Video, simple devotional guides like "Our Daily Bread" and non-threatening tracts like "Steps to Peace with God" or other tracts available from American Tract Society (www.ATStracts.org) or your local Christian book store.

....Love your neighbor as yourself.
Mark 12:31

  • Know that God may give you an opportunity to share your personal testimony as well.
  • Tell the people you are praying for about a Christian Women's or Men's Luncheon or about one of your church outreach events, retreats, Bible studies, etc. Invite them to attend with you!

Take your time.
Know that God will lead you.
