  1. 1. Have a good class, Kenny . We’ll pick you up at six. Enjoy yourself . Thanks, Mom and Dad! seven ways to share god’s love 2. Be a friend. 1. Start with the person next to you. One of the best ways to share God’s love is exactly the same way you get acquainted with anyone you meet. Hi, I’m Kenny . I’m Isidora. Asking people questions about themselves and their lives is a good way to get to know others and make friends; it shows that you’re both interested and concerned. Have you been playing violin for long? Two years. And you? Not quite as long. I probably sound like a screeching cat compared to you!
  2. 2. Made you cry? … Oh, I heard a violin solo when I was younger— What made you want to play the violin? it was so beautiful it made me cry . Interesting. The class is about to start. Maybe we can talk again later? I’d love to. 3. Listen! Encourage people to speak their heart. Listen to them and hear them out. Isidora, I’ve been wondering about what you told me about your reaction to the violin solo. Several weeks later. What reaction? You mentioned you cried when hearing the violin solo.
  3. 3. Well, my parents had just divorced then, and the music helped me to … you know… I think I do. And I know that Jesus understands too. Jesus? Jesus Christ? Oh, you probably don’t. … 4. Give them God’s answers... Give them God’s answers in your own words. You can also show people verses from the Bible. You do? Yes. I know that He’s right there when we struggle through something. Lift up Jesus by telling the person what He does for you! I recently had a close friend … you know, die. It says here in the Bible that He is near to them with a broken heart. … And read this. Jesus comforted me. I’m sorry for your loss.
  4. 4. Yes, and He wants to comfort us. So He understands what I’m going through? “…A man of sorrows and acquainted with grief ”1 . 1. King David once said about God “Even though I , walk through the darkest valley I will fear no evil, for , you are with me; your rod and your staff they , comfort me. 2 ” Isaiah 53:3 ESV 5. When the time is right , introduce them to Jesus. Jesus wants us to be happy . And He wants to be our personal friend . Sounds awesome. … But how? You can pray with me to ask Him to come into your heart. Do I have to kneel? Would you like that? No. Okay . Pray with them to receive Jesus. For those who are undecided, you can offer to pray for them. 2. Psalm 23:4 NIV Wait for God’s perfect timing. Remember Paul counsel: “I planted the seed in ’s your hearts, and Apollos watered it, but it was God who made it grow. It’s not important who does the planting, or who does the watering. What’s important is that God makes the seed grow” (1 Corinthians 3:6–7 NLT).
  5. 5. 6. Take care of those you lead to Jesus. Encourage new believers to read God’s Word so that they will grow in faith. Get their telephone number or email address so that you can continue to minister to their spirits. Can I have your email address? Sure. Encourage new believers to read the Word so that they will grow in faith. K int en ny e , rea resting you a d re thin ing th guy!

Keep on praying for those who come to know Jesus, that they will grow closer to Him. My audition went incredibly well! It was as though Jesus was playing through me! And I had a strong sense that you were praying for me! I was! Pray for those who are not yet saved to experience God’s love and care in their lives and come to know Jesus.
