"He put a new song in my mouth, A hymn of praise to my God.
Many will see...and put their trust in the Lord." Psalm 40:3
  Here is a site where people can gather together in their desire to share the love of Jesus. Inspired by a Christmas song, "Who Needs To Know?", written by Mary Latona and sung by Jim Dunmire, this has blossomed into a ministry with a DVD of the same song, to encourage people to reach out to others with the love of Jesus. As we find ourselves in "these final days", there is no better time than now to ask yourself, "who needs to know, and who needs to hear" the good news of the saving grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Who Needs To Share The Love?

You may be hesitant to share the Good News of Jesus Christ because you aren’t comfortable. You may not know what to say, or you may feel inadequate. Maybe you don’t know that many Bible verses, or you are afraid that person will turn you down and be turned off.

Please remember that it isn’t all you who is doing the sharing. If you will surrender yourself to the Holy Spirit’s leading and guidance, He will open your eyes to those who need Him, and direct your words for what to say. Prayer is so important before you share, as God will open the doors of opportunity. Feeding yourself in His Word will help you, and those verses will just flow when they are needed. Expect God to use you, for each day brings new opportunities to be His witness.

Be authentic. Be yourself. Extending friendship and a compassionate concern for another person is the beginning and leads to a genuine relationship. That person will see Christ’s love in you before he hears it from you. By you taking the time to listen to his concerns, he is able to become more receptive to what you have to say. A lot of times, they have tried everything and found nothing. They come to realize that there is something out there that is far beyond what they have had. Stick with them. Sometimes it takes time to build trust. You are an example to them of what it means to be a Christ-follower.

Leave the results to the Holy Spirit. He knows what that person needs. And in His perfect timing that person will be receptive to what you are sharing. Each time you plant a seed in someone, there is an opportunity for it to grow. Keep on planting!

There are many resources available to help you as you share the gospel. You may use the information on Who Needs To Believe?, or you may use the following, which is a basic review of what to tell someone, with Bible verses for you and that person to look up. Reading aloud makes a tremendous impact. Remember that Satan flees when God’s Word is spoken. Take each step slowly and thoughtfully, making sure that person understands it. Don’t rush through it, and allow him to ask questions if necessary. Keep in mind that you are not alone in this; God will pour out His Spirit to help you. When the person is ready to ask Jesus to be His Savior, have him pray. Here is a suggested prayer:

LORD Jesus, I need You.
Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins.
I open the door of my life and receive You
As my Savior and LORD.
Thank you for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life.
Take control of the throne of my life.
Make me the kind of person You want me to be.

Then, help that new believer to be discipled in a Bible-believing church. You may consider the information in Who Needs To Grow? to help. And Rejoice!! God has used you to bring another soul to His Kingdom!

John 11:25, 1 Corinthians 15:55-56 “Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me will live, even though he dies.” “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting? The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.”

John 1:12, Ephesians 2:8-9, Titus 3:5 “Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God… For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast…He saved us, not because of righteous things we have done, but because of His mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit.”
