Learning to Share Your Faith

When we accept the love and forgiveness offered to us through Jesus, we have received the gift of a lifetimea gift that is available to everyone. But not everyone knows or understands this freeing truth. Jesus said that as his followers we are supposed to share this good news. We are to share the gift that God has so freely given to us!
 
Below are a few books to encourage and empower you in reaching out to others with the Gospel message:
 
CRAZY LOVE
Remember how it felt to fall passionately in love? Butterflies in the stomach, clammy hands, maybe you were speechless... or you couldn't stop talking about him or her? If you have ever been in love, you know you long to show and tell the world! So are YOU madly, fully, deliriously in love with the One who is crazy about you? And if so, are you telling the world about HIM? Author Francis Chan, rekindles our love relationship with God and helps us share it with others.
 
JUST WALK ACROSS THE ROOM
If taking 10 steps across a room could point someone toward faith it might just change the way you walk! Just a few steps can change eternity. So why are you just sitting there?  Get moving!  Bill Hybels book, Just Walk Across the Room, will help you live in 3D— developing relationships, discovering stories, and discerning appropriate next steps— all at the promptings of the Holy Spirit.  Available in the ECHO Bookstore in the Fort Lauderdale Gym lobby.
 
 
ORGANIC CHURCH: GROWING FAITH WHERE LIFE HAPPENS
According to Pastor Neil Cole, if we want to connect with young people and those who are not coming to church, we must go where people congregate. This book shows how to plant Kingdom seeds in the places where life happens and culture is formed— restaurants, bars, coffeehouses, parks, locker rooms, neighborhoods...  just like Jesus.  Discover how you can meet people exactly where they are and share the faith that allows you to thrive as life happens.
