How to Share the Gospel Effectively

Taught by Holly S.

Our efforts to share the gospel are most effective if we love our brothers and sisters and have the companionship of the Holy Ghost.

President George Albert Smith said, 
"I would not seek to force people to live up to my ideals but rather love them into doing the thing that is right."

We all have a "gift basket" of gospel blessings that we need to be sharing with everyone.  We need to be sharing the gospel with non-members, in-actives, and even active members. Active members need it as well.  In life our testimony has its ups and downs that can be affected by life's trials and challenges.  We all need that love and strength to keep us strong no matter where we are in the gospel.  We need to be sharing our love with everyone all of the time.  We are commanded in the scriptures to share His gospel.  It is our duty.  The Savior instructed Peter to "Feed my Sheep".

Sharing the gospel is sharing of ourselves!  Sharing the gospel through love doesn't need to be complicated, scary or hard.  It is little simple acts that can make all of the difference.  Like a smile, a wave, a compliment, an invitation, friendships, an offer of help and acceptance.  These are simple was of reaching out in love.  They don't take a lot of time or money but can really have an impact. 

"Love is the great power to influence this world!" 
~President George Albert Smith~
