Our job is to plant the seed.

15 Easy Ways To Share The Gospel In The 21st Century
Ashley Brooke Boyd

Name the last five people you’ve shared the gospel with. Go on! I’ll wait.

Oh, wait… you haven’t done that in a while, have you? Yeah, me neither. Maybe you need to know you’re not alone. Maybe you need someone to walk beside you so you don’t feel uncomfortable. Yeah, I need that, too. Today I’m sharing 15 easy ways to share the gospel. I hope these are useful to you and I CHALLENGE YOU TO PICK ONE AND USE IT!

Let’s get down what the gospel is. Sharing the gospel isn’t your personal testimony. It’s not sharing random scripture. It’s not a debate or an argument.

The gospel is the good news about the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Furthermore–the point of sharing the Gospel isn’t to save people. Yes, you read that right. “Saving people” isn’t our job–it’s God’s job. Our job is to simply plant the seed. We are obedient to share God’s love with others, and we depend on Him for the rest.

1. When carpooling, play a Christian radio station/playlist.

You don’t have to have in on full-blast, unless you want to. Having it play quietly in the background is enough.

2. Do a random act of kindness and leave a note that says “because Jesus loves you.”

3. Read the Bible or other Christian books during your lunch break.

People will notice! They might even ask you what your book is about.

4. Support a child in a third world country.

5. When someone is sick, bring them a hot meal and offer to pray for them.

This goes for when someone in their family has passed away, too.

6. Pray for people when you hear they’re going through a rough time.

Pray right there with them. Hold their hand or place your hand on your shoulder and pray. In public, in private. Pray.

7. Give food to a homeless person on the side of the road.

Give God the credit.

8. Invite someone to church.

Lots of people who don’t go to church would go if you ask, especially around holidays like Christmas and Easter.

9. Wear t-shirts/jewelry with Christian themes or Bible verses on them.

You never know if that will strike up a conversation.

10. If you like tattoos, get a Bible verse or another Christian symbol tattooed onto your body.

11. Ask a waiter or waitress how you can pray for them.

Then leave a big tip and an encouraging note (including something like “Jesus loves you!") on the receipt.

12. Take someone to a spiritual movie.

Go out to eat afterward and talk about it.

13. Post scripture on social media (but live it, too)!

14. Send out holiday cards with scriptures on them.

15. Pray over your food, especially when you go out to eat.

Preach the gospel at all times, and if necessary, use words.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
