“Is the Bible relevant today?” This can sometimes be a question we ask ourselves when reading the Bible. So, we compiled Scripture meditations like this one to help see reasons why the Bible is relevant, and to help us connect with God.


How to Share About Jesus

If you’re a procrastinator, you’re not alone. We struggle, too. And most of the time, procrastinating is pretty harmless. Like, when we avoid a homework or work assignment, laundry, or calling a distant relative we’re forced to talk to once a year… I mean, we still manage to get it done eventually.

But with some things, procrastinating might not be the best thing. 

Conversations about God can be super awkward and scary, making them really easy to put off. But the Gospel is called the Good News for a reason. And, if you’ve experienced the power of Jesus’s sacrifice for us, then you know why. Life is still hard, but living for Jesus unlocks a whole new love, purpose, and joy in life, even during difficult times. 

Knowing this doesn’t necessarily mean awkward conversations get any less so, but it makes those awkward moments feel more worth it. What’s one minute of awkwardness if it means another person experiences the love of God? 

It can be intimidating to know how to share Jesus with others, especially if you’re worried about seeming pushy or saying the wrong thing. But, if it’s God’s timing, the Holy Spirit will give you the right words and the right circumstancesyou don’t have to force anything on your own.

So many people are ready to hear the Gospel, and God has tasked us with sharing his love. Yes, it’s scary, but we have a Counselor to lean on, helping us not waste a second.

John 4:35

“35 Don’t you have a saying, ‘It’s still four months until harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.”

Observations from the Text

  • People are ready to hear about God
  • The opportunities are there, we just need to look for them
  • Sharing the Gospel should be sweet, like picking fresh food
