10 Reasons to Share the Gospel
Sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ is crucial to our faith as Christians.
The Good News can help others find salvation and eternal life.
While some may hesitate to share their faith, it is essential for many reasons. This article will explore ten crucial reasons to share that part of God’s Word.
1. To Fulfill the Great Commission
One of the primary reasons to share the Gospel is to fulfill Jesus’ Great Commission. In Matthew 28:19–20, Jesus commanded His disciples to “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” As believers, we are called to follow this commandment and share the message of salvation with others.
2. To Love Our Neighbours
Sharing the Gospel is also a way to show love to our neighbors.
As His followers, we are called to love our neighbors as ourselves, and there is no greater act of love than to share the good news of Jesus Christ with them.
By sharing the Gospel, we are helping others find hope, peace, and purpose in their lives.
3. To Spread the Truth
The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the truth, and it is essential to spread it to those who may not know it.
In John 14:6, Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
By sharing the Gospel, we are helping others find the truth that can free them.
4. To Follow Jesus’ Example
As believers, we are called to follow Christ’s example, and He spent much of His time sharing the Gospel with others.
In Luke 19:10, Jesus said, “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”
By sharing the Gospel, we follow in Jesus’ footsteps and do what He did during His time on earth.
5. To Bring Glory to God
Sharing the Gospel is also a way to bring glory to God. When we share the good news of Jesus Chhers, we proclaim His greatness and show others what He has done for us.
In Psalm 96:3, the psalmist says, “Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples.”
By sharing the Gospel, we are declaring God’s glory to others.
6. To Help Others Find Peace
Many people are searching for Peace in their lives. By sharing the Gospel from God’s Word, we are helping others find the Peace that only comes through a relationship with Jesus Christ.
In John 14:27, Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you; my Peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not be afraid.”
By sharing the Gospel, we are helping others find the Peace that surpasses all understanding.
7. To Help Others Find Purpose
Sharing the Gospel can also help others find purpose in their lives. Many people search for meaning and direction; the Gospel can provide both.
In 2 Corinthians 5:17, Paul says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”
By sharing the Gospel, we are helping others find a new purpose and direction in their lives.
8. To Help Others Find Hope
The Gospel of Jesus Christ is a message of hope. By sharing the Gospel, we are helping others find hope in a hopeless world.
In Romans 15:13, Paul says, “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
By sharing the Gospel, we are helping others find the hope that can only come from a relationship with Jesus Christ.
9. To Obey God’s Word
Sharing the Gospel is a way to obey God’s Word.
In Romans 10:14-15, Paul says, “How can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one whom they have not heard?…how can they hear without someone preaching to them?.. As it is written: ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!'”
By sharing the Gospel, we obey God’s Word and do what He has commanded us to do.
10. To Help Save Souls
The most important reason to share the Gospel is to help save souls.
In Mark 16:15, Jesus said, “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.”
Sharing the Gospel allows others to receive salvation and eternal life.
