Sharing with a Lost Spouse posted by Evangelism Explosion on Feb 03, 2020
Have you been radically changed by the Gospel of Jesus? Now, another question – what about your spouse? Does your spouse know the Lord?
Sharing the Gospel with a lost loved one, especially a spouse, can be both the scariest and the most joyous experience you will have. If you’ve tried to share the Gospel with your spouse only to be rejected, don’t give up. You know your spouse better than anyone here on earth, but Jesus knows them even better than they know themselves.
First, become a praying spouse. Pray fervently for your loved one to be open to the direction and conviction of the Holy Spirit. Next, pray that your life would shine the light of Jesus. This doesn’t mean you’re perfect and you won’t make mistakes, but it does mean that you own up to your mistakes and that you share the love of Christ with them as much as you can. Let them see His forgiveness in you.
A lady named Jessica, who has now taken Everyday Evangelism, says that when her husband started witnessing to her, she resisted, but she couldn’t resist for long! She accepted Jesus and her husband could tell an immediate difference – even before she told him!
So, trust that the Lord wants to save your significant other and that He can use you to reach them! Let them see your concern for their soul and your love for them. God can use your faith to soften their heart! It may take a while. It may be difficult, but the Lord is faithful and He is mighty to save. Pray for them, love them and be obedient to God’s Word.
