How Can You Share Your Faith

by Dave DuBois on July 01, 2023

When I share the love of Jesus, I use many Scripture readings from the Holy Bible to help clarify that understanding. Then we need to rejoice and share our faith with others to help bring people to Christ for believers and unbelievers. Once we have faith, where do we begin?

There’s a difference between being a Christian and being a disciple. Christians must consciously decide to serve the Lord fully. The gift of faith is for all to live a committed life and obey our Lord and Savior. It all begins in the mind. Thinking right always precedes acting right. People who wish to be disciples replace their selfish goals by putting others first and serving them, just as Jesus has shown us.

Faith by the Holy Spirit will guide us to develop God-pleasing works that deny our sinful selves. Taking up our cross has to be a daily matter. To be a true servant of God takes genuine humility. As mentioned in the book of James, “So also faith by itself, if he does not have works, is dead” (James 2:17).

Living differently begins with thinking differently. The right attitude can literally transform our circumstances to be “salt and light” to the lost.

The Bible is the Christian’s guide. It is God’s inspired Word without error. The principles that govern the Christian life are derived from the Scriptures. The Bible is our educational foundation for teaching what true faith to others really is. When we practice the principles of God’s will, this will help others see our Savior in action. God becomes real to infant Christians through works of love.

When helping others to better grow in their faith, we can always show the magnitude of God’s love through the His cross. As teachers and leaders, we are to build up Christ, not our own reputation.

When leading people to Christ and to help mature their faith, people respond much better to personal models or examples rather than verbal demands. We can also help people grow in their faith by helping others to develop accountability. As we teach others how to be accountable to their Christian faith, we can bond and grow together in our love for Christ.

We have been saved by faith through Christ Jesus, our Lord, and no one can boast about what they have done. As we humbly teach others how to truly confess and repent daily, we can teach them the power of Christ and how our faith will mature and grow daily in coming closer to Jesus.

The death of sin no longer overpowers us. This needs to be brought out in the light for the people we are educating and pointing to Christ. As they continue to be directed in the path of the cross, then only can we sustain and grow in our faith.

Besides being the work of God for us in Jesus Christ, grace is also the work of God in us through the gift of the Holy Spirit.

It is the power of God, for everyone who believes, to drive our faith to do good works and to be obedient and follow our Lord and Savior. Scripture again reminds us that there is nothing we can do to save ourselves. As we teach and lead others to Christ, we dare never stop speaking about Jesus and the cross.

Understanding what faith is can be complicated, yet it can be a simple concept to understand. But the real message to convey is to properly introduce it and help others to know the path to follow to make it grow, which is of extreme and life depending importance.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths” (Proverbs 3:5-6).

A day is coming when we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, and everyone needs to account for what they have done, whether it be good or bad, as mentioned in John 5:28-29. Where is our evidence?

May God bless you as you continue to grow and share in your faith.
