How To Share Your Faith Confidently
How To Share Your Faith Confidently
And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. "Mark 16:15 ESV
As children of God, we have a common calling to proclaim the gospel, share our faith, and be the light in a dark and lonely world. The majority of us know this, and most of us want to do it, but for some of us, sharing our faith can be a real struggle.
Some of us tend to overthink things. We spend all our time trying to figure out what to say, when to say it, and how to begin. We don't want to be pushy, but we also don't want the people around us to miss out on something as beautiful as Jesus, so we feel stuck and unfulfilled.
If that sounds like you, know that you are not alone, there are thousands of people who feel this way but there are also ways to conquer that feeling. Here are some suggestions that may put you to ease, and encourage you to step out.
Share Your Faith By Living It
Live out your faith by:
- Being generous.
- Helping those in need.
- Working with excellence.
- Being kind without reason.
- Showing integrity.
- Being trustworthy.
- Being the person that everyone can count on.
- Being humble.
- Loving people unconditionally.
When you do all these things, even if you don't say a word about your faith, people would want to know. They would be curious as to why you are doing things that don’t directly benefit you.
Eventually, they will come to you and ask, and that is when you should talk about God being your reason behind it all. That is when your seed will fall on fertile ground.
Let's break it down into three steps-
Share Your Faith By Posting It
Social media has its downsides but it can also be used for good.
If you have an account on any social media platform, sharing your faith can be as simple as posting a scripture, song, or sermon clip. You don't necessarily have to direct it at anyone, just keep posting your own gospel content or reposting from other Christian pages.
It may seem insignificant at first, especially if you don’t get feedback, but the truth is, someone, somewhere, may need to see the exact thing you're hesitating to post today.
Share Your Faith By Talking About It
Testify as much as you can to as many people as you can.
There are thousands of people in the world who resist hearing the gospel but love hearing stories. So tell them your story, tell them about who you were and who you are now.
Tell them how it all happened because, in the end, only God gets the glory.
Share Your Faith By Wearing It
Last, but most certainly not least, you can share your faith by wearing it. There’s a reason Christian jewelry and faith-based clothing are becoming more and more popular every day. Yes, it may be because they look good, but more than that, it's because they are serving their purpose. Wearing gospel jewelry and clothing is helping people share their faith.
Sometimes all it takes is a simple yet unusual design on a necklace, for someone to ask, "What does that mean?" It's honestly the best conversation starter, and it gives you the perfect opportunity to confidently share your faith.

Finally, remember that God is in control and He wants His people to hear about Him even more than you do. Therefore, there’s no reason to try and do it all on your own, do what you can do, and then allow Jesus to step in and do what only He can do. You’ve got this!
