Are you a blogger? You might be seasoned or just starting up, but here is a revitalizing thought for you:
You can share the radical news of Jesus with any page view, visitor, and post!
And it's soooo ridiculously easy!
Social media is becoming increasingly influential (no surprise there) and our God is up with the times, using it for His glory. Blogging is no exception.
What I love about using your blogging platform for the gospel is that your unique site has its own stream of regular visitors who trust and know your voice. Additionally, new people are probably finding their way to your corner of the Internet each day. Use that unique reach to impact lives in the most life-altering way!
I challenge you to use your blogging for God's glory and to send ripples into eternity!
Here are 4 (EASY!) Ways to Share the Gospel on Your Blog
1. State it clearly!
You can sum up Jesus' work on the cross in just a few precise, inviting sentences. Place your explanation in any high traffic area such as in your sidebars, within your "About Me" section or at the bottom of every post.
Here's an example that I recently posted on my blog:
Jesus came to Earth to die for our sins, our mess-ups and anytime we've been less than perfect . Rising again, He triumphed over all his enemies, giving us the assurance that we are not condemned if we believe. The sole thing waiting for us in knowing Jesus personally...is everlasting joy.
2. Use a widget in your sidebar
Consider installing this widget on the sidebar of your blog. This will give people access to it every time they visit your home page. Sharing your faith doesn't get much easier!
3. Share your personal testimony
How did Jesus first capture your attention and change your life? Check out this helpful tool to write a post about how your life has been transformed and let that personal experience speak volumes to your readers.
4. Use holidays as catalysts
This is my favorite thing to do over at my blog! Readers automatically connect with your post if they celebrate the holiday too so make the most of it. Determine how to clearly state the gospel by tying in the themes of the holiday, major ideas surrounding the special day, or a personal story that can be taken back to the gospel

I pray your writing is blessed and a source of encouragement to all who find themselves on your blog. Be bold with your faith and let your writing be a catalyst for God's glory. Blog on!
"I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ." Philemon 6
