Are you not grateful that sometimes in the journey of your life, you have the highest privilege of having a relationship with the God of the whole universe? I think this is the best thing that could happen to any man. What if you also have the opportunity to bring others to Christ?
Many are not sharing their faith because they don’t know how to engage others with the gospel, that is why we are presenting you this simple to understand and easy to implement step by step procedure with transferrable pictograph on how to share your faith with others
We live in a world where few people seek God. But whoever does not have a relationship with the Savior will be under the judgment of the Most High for all eternity (Mt 7.21-23). As ambassadors for Christ, we must be willing to share the gospel (2 Cor 5.20).
Here are five keywords to help us communicate the good news of God:
THE PROVISION: God sent his Son Jesus to pay the debt we have for our sins (Rom 3:16).
THE NEED: The person must first recognize that something is wrong between him and God (Rom 3.10) and that it is not something he can fix on his own.
THE COST: For us, salvation is free; it’s a gift. But it had a very high price for God since he sacrificed his Son (Ro 6.23).
FAITH: There is only one way to salvation, and it is putting faith in Jesus Christ (Jn 14.6).
Here is a sample prayer to receive Christ as your personal Lord and Savior
SECURITY: When we believe, the Holy Spirit comes to dwell within us. Through Him, we know that we are children of God and that we will spend eternity with the heavenly Father.

6 benefits of sharing your faith with others
Sharing the good news of Jesus’ salvation is something that all Christians should do with joy. Not only because Christ entrusted us with that task, but because the love he puts in our hearts should urge us to seek salvation for those around us. But in addition to being of benefit to others, it is also for us. These are some of the advantages we acquire when we evangelize:
- It helps us to seek and know more about Jesus
The best way to explain what it means to be a follower of Christ is through what he did in our lives. When we share our stories, people will want to know more, and this will prompt us to have a closer relationship with Jesus. Both practices go hand in hand, because the more we evangelize, the closer we get to God; and the closer we are to him, the more we want to talk about Jesus.
- It makes us better at listening
Talking about Jesus means listening. People are willing to express themselves and have someone who understands their problems. Instead of talking and talking non-stop, what we must do is listen to others first. This is what makes the difference when it comes to evangelizing. That is why the more we evangelize, we become much better by knowing how to listen and pay attention to the needs of those around us.
- It makes us more persevering
Not all people accept Jesus as quickly as others, and it is precisely this fact that makes us more patient and persevering. Just as it takes months, or even years, for a plant to bear fruit, so people need time to accept Jesus in their lives. During these moments, we should not despair and insist aggressively, but be patient and show God’s love for them.
- Our love for others grows
Sometimes it is difficult for us to love others, especially when we do not know them or they do us some harm. However, sharing Jesus causes us to put love into practice and see people as he sees them. It also opens our minds and hearts to people’s experiences and makes us closer to them.
- Increase our faith
Evangelism would not be possible without God. You are welcome to have the best methods, but if he is not in them, nothing will be achieved. Sharing our faith makes us deposit our faith in Jesus for every step we take: from starting a conversation with another person to trusting him to give his life.

- It makes us brave
Many people fear to talk about Jesus with others for fear of rejection or because they don’t know what to say. However, once we do, it becomes more comfortable with practice. The courage we need comes from God and he helps us continue to carry out the work entrusted to us.
