Colossians 4:5-6, Matthew 5:16

We have looked at how to share the gospel through our own testimony and in our relationships. There are several other examples in Scripture of ways we can share the gospel with others. Paul engages culture with intellect and wisdom in Acts 17, Peter directly shares in Acts 2, Jesus invites the woman at the well in John 4, and 1 Peter 4:10 encourages us to serve others as a means to share the gospel. These are just a few of the examples of how we can share the gospel with others.

Colossians 4:6 encourages us to “Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.” Regardless of the method we use, we must always be mindful of how we go about sharing the gospel. John 13:35 says we will be known for how we love one another. In the same way, what should drive our motivation to share the gospel is love and desire for others to know the perfect love that can only be found in Jesus Christ. Don’t let the method of your evangelism overshadow the message of your evangelism.
