Sharing the Gospel Naturally

I know that sharing the gospel can be really intimidating, but the more we share the gospel the easier it becomes. I wanted to share this amazing message with everyone.  I will post a few things here, but you can read the whole article on the LDS website here

This article is specifically geared toward the youth of the church, but I know we can all take a few pointers from it and be more missionary like.

"You can be a missionary in a small way each day...

In the October 2013 general conference, President Thomas S. Monson reminded us how important it is to help others come unto Christ.1 For many of us, sharing the gospel can feel intimidating, though. After all, have you ever felt nervous about talking to others about the gospel or the Church?"

There are lists of things we can do to share the gospel naturally. Some of the lists include videos, scriptures to cheer others up, conversation starters, and most importantly a reminder that we should be praying for missionary opportunities.

"Elder M. Russell Ballard of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles taught that there is a way to overcome that fear. He said, “'Fear will be replaced with faith and confidence when members and the full-time missionaries kneel in prayer and ask the Lord to bless them with missionary opportunities. Then, we must demonstrate our faith and watch for opportunities to introduce the gospel of Jesus Christ to our Heavenly Father’s children, and surely those opportunities will come. These opportunities will never require a forced or a contrived response. They will flow as a natural result of our love for our brothers and sisters. Just be positive, and those whom you speak with will feel your love.'”
