As you enjoy a nice cup of Christian Kitchens Coffee this morning, I wanted to share with you all a little about sharing Bible verses with those around us. As Christians, we should always be looking for opportunities to share God's Word with others. There are so many different ways to do this, and the best way to figure out what works best for you, is to experiment a little.
Romans 1:16 says “For I am not ashamed of the Gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes.”
It’s okay if the answer is yes. Sharing Bible verses publicly, either in conversation or on social media can be scary and stressful.
Unfortunately, all of those responses are possible.
However, don’t let that deter you! There are so many ways to share Bible verses in today’s day and age.
One great way to share Bible verses is through social media. Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram are all great platforms for sharing scripture. Daily or weekly posts, tweets, or Instagram Stories are all easy ways to begin to introduce Bible verses to your friends and co-workers. This method also limits negative interactions.
It will not eliminate them completely, so don’t expect that to be the case.
Two other ways to share verses that limit confrontation are posting Bible verses on your blog or website. If you have a physical business, you can post Bible verses on your signs, or in your store.
Verse selection is very important, especially if you are going to post verses at work or on something work associated. When just getting started, stick with verses that are softer and focus on positivity and motivation. Good examples are:
The most important thing to do when sharing scripture is to be intentional about it. Don't just wait for an opportunity to present itself; go out and look for them.
The more you share God's Word with others, the more they will come to know Him. And that's what it's all about!
When you're talking to someone, take advantage of natural openings in the conversation to slip in a scripture verse encouragingly.
Remember, sharing a Bible verse with someone is not going to convert them to Christianity right there and then. Our calling as Believers is to be a light unto others.
Encouraging others with Scripture is a great way to point others to the Creator, and is a hopeful first step in their own personal journey with Christ.
Have a blessed day!
