Sharing the Gospel Every Day

Sharing the gospel is about so much more than our words. It is also about sharing it through our actions, through our love. In James 2:26, it says, “Faith is dead without good works.” In other words, as Christians, we’re saved to do more than just talk about what we believe; the Holy Spirit empowers us to live out God’s love by showing others we care, meeting their needs, and living our lives with an attitude of grace. With so many choices to make in our everyday lives, we have the opportunity and calling to live in such a way that we reflect the God who loves us (Ephesians 5:2). Why? So that people who don’t know Him yet might see these God-empowered good deeds and glorify God because of them (Matthew 5:16; Ephesians 2:10). Sharing the gospel doesn’t always begin with words; it often begins by caring for someone, showing them the love of the Savior. Sometimes that looks like helping orphans and widows (James 1:27). Sometimes that looks like loving our enemies (Matthew 5:43-48). No matter where we are or who we are interacting with, we have the Holy Spirit, who will show us how to best share the gospel in every situation (Luke 12:12). • Bethany Acker • Do you struggle to share the gospel? How can you live it out? • If you’re struggling to share the gospel with your words or actions, who is a trusted Christian in your life you could talk with about it—such as a pastor, counselor, parent, or youth leader? Just as the body is dead without breath, so also faith is dead without good works. James 2:26 (NLT)
