Sharing Good News
What does it mean to Share Christ Boldly?
The greatest act of love you can show toward a friend is to help that friend find Jesus. The best way to do that is to share Jesus’ story through word and deed. God has chosen us, as Christians, to be ambassadors of Christ so that world can be reconciled to God (2 Corinthians 5:18-21). We have to be bold in our endeavor to share Christ to this world.
