Spreading the Faith

Q: What can I do to help my friends in school who don’t know God?

A: First, to help those who don’t know God, let them see that you do know Him. Act as a member of God’s Church and demonstrate His love. Second, invite others to participate in your Church and/or youth group activities. Make a friendly gesture toward these events; don’t push them uncomfortably upon your friends. Like that saying, “Always propose, never impose.” Third, try to make conversation about God and beliefs. Start by asking your friends what they believe and, in turn, tell them about your faith. Encourage their own foundation in God by providing books, websites, or a Bible. Make it interesting. Make them want the beautiful gift of faith that you are so blessed to have yourself.
