Knowing God: Sharing Your Faith
Sharing your faith, evangelizing, witnessing . . . These are potentially unfamiliar words for activities that can appear mysterious, but take a moment to think about it. Sharing your faith is simple. Whether it is the latest movie, parenting tip, or a great new neighborhood restaurant, you just naturally talk about the things that matter to you. Why should your newfound relationship with Christ be any different?
Evangelism is derived from the Greek word for “good news.” To your friends, family members, co-workers, and neighbors, the news that the God of the Bible is real, loves them, and that He longs to have a relationship with them certainly qualifies as “good news.” In a legal proceeding, a witness is asked to recount what they have seen or heard for themselves. You have a story about your experience of God’s love and you are in a unique position to serve as a witness to what you have experienced.
As God provides you with opportunities to talk about your relationship with Him, questions may come up. Questions you might not know how to answer or even where to go for help. There are a number of helpful resources including an explanation of the essential elements of faith, classes, and even a chance to hear Pastor Bob's story of how he surrendered his life to Christ.
