Share the Life encourages members to foster a lifestyle of sharing Jesus. In addition, it trains and equips members and entire churches for soul-winning service for Christ.
The reality is that when it comes to evangelism, we are just not reaching our communities the way we used to.
The purpose of Share the Life is simply to see more of our church excited and active in sharing Jesus with others.
It starts when we allow Jesus Christ to become the center of lives. When we're fully consumed with Him, we can rediscover that passionate witness. We can't help but share Christ when He means everything to us.
How would we carry out our mission as a church if we had no money? That's a question the early Christian church faced.
How did the early church share the joy of a life lived in and for Christ without a large established organization? They did it through the individual, passionate witness of every disciple of Christ!
That is what must happen now--in the closing minutes of earth’s history. So, the purpose of “Share the Life” is simply to see more of our church excited and active in sharing Jesus with others. It is to help us become what Sister White saw we would be by the power of the Holy Spirit, right before the coming of Christ:
“In visions of the night, representations passed before me of a great reformatory movement among God’s people. Many were praising God. The sick were healed, and other miracles were wrought. A spirit of intercession was seen, even as was manifested before the great Day of Pentecost. Hundreds and thousands were seen visiting families and opening before them the word of God. Hearts were convicted by the power of the Holy Spirit, and a spirit of genuine conversion was manifest. On every side doors were thrown open to the proclamation of the truth. The world seemed to be lightened with the heavenly influence. Great blessings were received by the true and humble people of God.” 9T 126.
This is a picture of a healthy church. It is a church that is actively engaged in sharing Him. “Share the Life” is our response to this vision.
