Let your light shine by looking for opportunities to share the love of Christ.

There are many reasons why we should share Christ's love. Here are a few:

  • Because it is what Jesus commanded us to do. Jesus said, "Love your neighbor as yourself" (Matthew 22:39). He also said, "Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you" (Matthew 28:19-20).
  • Because it is the greatest commandment. Jesus said, "The greatest of all the commandments is this: 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.' The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no greater commandment than these" (Matthew 22:37-39).
  • Because it is the most powerful force in the world. The love of Christ can change lives. It can bring hope to the hopeless, love to the unloved, and peace to the troubled.
  • Because it is the most rewarding thing we can do. There is no greater joy than seeing someone come to know the love of Christ. It is a joy that can last a lifetime.
