Sharing your faith can be tough, especially when you feel relatively new to the world of Christianity. It’s easy to feel like you don’t know enough or like you’re not on the right level for you to start sharing your faith, but that’s not the case! You can share your faith every day in creative ways that don’t require a theology degree or extreme social skills. Here are a few of our favorites.
One of the easiest and possibly most influential ways to share your faith in today’s world is using social media. Sharing a verse or a piece of encouragement from your own personal Bible study can really turn around someone’s day or opinion of God. You would be surprised how much something that simple can do. Next time a verse really catches your eye or changes your perspective, don’t be afraid to share it on one of your social accounts! You never know what seeds might get planted.
Another simple yet effective way is to wear Jesus – literally! Wearing a piece of clothing or an accessory that shows your love for Christ is a great way to just get people thinking. Whether it’s a t-shirt, a necklace, or even a tattoo, being a physical billboard for Christ can be a fun way to share your faith. If you feel prepared to even take it a step further, these things can also be creative conversation starters. Depending on what it is, you may have people come to you and ask you about it. What better chance will you get to verbally share your faith with someone?
One of the most powerful ways to share your faith is to talk about what God has done in your life. Even for the Christian themselves, being in tune with how God is working in your life is essential for faith building and cultivating a great relationship with God. In your various conversations throughout the day with people who don’t know Christ, slip in a few words about how you’ve seen God move in your life. Don’t be afraid to be bold! People tend to relate the most to other people’s stories and personal testimonies of how they’ve seen God work. Be authentic and genuine; this goes a long way when sharing Christ with others.
Lastly, live a life worthy of the Gospel. Philippians 1:27 says, “Only conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or remain absent, I will hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel”. Every action you show towards someone is a testament to the Gospel of Christ. This may sound daunting, but it’s such a great tool for sharing your faith! Doing something as simple as asking an employee at a store you happen to be at how their day is going can go a long way in showing the love of Christ to them. When we live as God calls us to, people notice. By doing this, you can easily and creatively share your faith every single day of your life.
