Why We Share The Gospel

If you were around me this week, you know what you would hear me say?

 “Hey, I have a new grandson! He’s the most beautiful baby you could ever imagine. Let me tell you about Theo . . .”

I don’t know about you, but I can’t keep beauty to myself. Those that met Jesus couldn’t keep him to themselves either. In every way, Jesus was captivating.

Meeting Jesus

Philip meets Jesus for the first time, and he immediately goes to tell his friend Nathanael (John 1:45). 

The ostracized woman at the well meets Jesus and is blown away. She goes back to her village and shares her good news: “Come, see a man who told me all that I ever did. Can this be the Christ?” (John 4:29). 

The man, healed after thirty-eight years of paralysis, “went away and told them that it was Jesus who healed him” (John 5:15). 

On and on it goes. Encountering Jesus, then and today, is meeting up with truth, power, and beauty.

Sharing Jesus Today

Today, we are still sharing about Jesus, just like the people who met him while he was on earth. But why are compelled to share?



We share the Gospel because we have been impacted by beauty beyond imagination. No one has had an encounter with God in Christ that we have had. 

We all have our own story of how we were transformed by the Gospel, and God will put people in our path that need to hear it. There is power in our testimony. Share it. And in sharing our unique stories, we show how we have been restored and made beautiful in Jesus.



We share the Gospel because it’s true. Jesus is indeed the source of all that we cannot give ourselves – forgiveness, new life, adoption into His family, purpose in life that goes being this life, truth, and joy.

Good News

We share the Gospel because it is good news. Daily we are inundated by evil, sad, and painful stories. The Gospel is the truth of a God who became a man to die in our place to give us the life that God has purposed for us. That’s worth passing on.

To Give Comfort To Others

We share the Gospel because we can’t stand the pain that others are enduring who don’t know God. Jesus is the ultimate source of comfort and healing. We want our friends and family to know him. 

Which of your family members, friends or neighbors have yet to experience the hope and comfort that God offers?

Because We Are God’s Spokespeople

We share the Gospel because that’s what followers of Jesus are called to do. Jesus gave us the commission to go and make disciples of all peoples (Matt 28: 19). Doing what Jesus asks us to do is our way of loving him.


It Strengthens Our Faith

Nothing teaches a fisherman like fishing. Interacting with non-believers and sharing the good news helps us strengthen our faith, have greater confidence, and deepens our walk with God.

“…hearing of your love and faith which you have toward the Lord Jesus and toward all the saints, that the sharing of your faith may become effective by the acknowledgment of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus” (Philemon 5–6).

With all these reasons to share the Gospel, who do you want to share it with first?
