Most of us have been taught by our parents, teachers, and others to "love our neighbors" and to share with them. But most of the time when we think of sharing, we think about objects or things. If we truly love other people though, there is something much more important that we should share with them. Do you know what it is? Here is a Bible verse which should help you answer the question:We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us. (We should share the good news about Jesus with other people. After all, those who have Jesus as their Savior will get to live with God throughout eternity, and there isn't anything better than that!
1 Thessalonians 2:8 NIV)
So, starting today, when you really want to share something wonderful with someone, tell them the good news about God's Son, Jesus, and how He died for our sins so that we can be forgiven. And tell them how Jesus arose from the dead after three days and is still alive. This is what we call the "gospel" which really means "good news."
Share the gospel with someone you love!
