Sharing your faith is a challenge for many. Understanding how to share your faith can seem intimidating at first, however, with a bit of prayer beforehand and watching for opportunities to share your faith, you’ll find it easier each and every time.
Start by asking God to help you identify your opportunities each day to share your faith. A good time to do this is shortly after you wake up in the morning and start your day. In fact, if you start your day with God, this is the perfect time to do it.
A simple prayer is all it takes to begin sharing your faith. Once you see and opportunity you can ask questions such as “Do you know what happens to you when you die?” Or, “I’m so glad I believe in God in these times”. There are many great ways to open a conversation, you can look up a few great ways to break the ice with a simple question or sentence and go from there.
Remember, you don’t always have to use words to share your faith. Actions have always spoken louder than words. If you live your faith, your life will be a testament to your faith daily. Remember this in all that you do. Ask God to help you to show your faith in all that you do.
Ask your friends and family to help you by praying and having Bible studies together to pray for those with who you’re attempting to share your faith. Make it a habit to learn peoples names when you first meet them, if you’re bad with names, you may need to write the names down until you can remember them.
When you talk to people and say their name, it will show them that you’re thinking of them. Pray for them by name when you say your prayers. Ask God to help you remember their names and their needs.
Sharing your faith will become easier the more that you do it. You have the opportunity to share your faith every time you meet someone or see someone that you know. Just remember, don’t be like a pushy salesman, no one likes a pushy salesman. Instead, be gentle.
Remember that the voice of God is gentle and your job is not to judge anyone, but rather, to share your faith and talk to them about God. You want to be the person that they call when they have a question about faith, not the person that they avoid.
Picture yourself as walking hand in hand with Jesus when you approach someone to share faith with. This will help you to feel more secure about what you’re sharing. Not everyone is going to be receptive when you share. Even if someone doesn’t seem receptive, continue praying for them. You may not be the person who gets to see it flourish, you may only be the one that plants the seed. Knowing how to share your faith will become easier with time.
