As one who has trusted Christ as Savior, you have been given privileges and responsibilities associated with the title of “ambassador.” Though we have our individual places of service, we share the same job description. Our objective is to share Jesus Christ to those who don’t have a personal relationship with Him so they may be reconciled to God (2 Cor. 5:18-21). It’s called evangelism—sharing our faith with others.

Here are some ways we can do that: by establishing relationships with those who don’t know Christ (Jn. 17:18), by presenting a defense of the Word of God in a gentle, respectful manner (1 Pet. 3:15), by prayerfully and boldly grasping opportune situations (Eph. 6:20), by maintaining a good conscience so criticism is unfounded (1 Pet. 3:16), by sacrificially using time and personal resources for Christ’s benefit (Lk. 18:22; 2 Cor. 5:15, 17), and by practicing hospitality to those who don’t know Christ as well as fellow believers (Rom. 12:13). 

JBU has many articles on evangelism to come alongside you and help you as you share Christ with the people God has placed in your life.
