Sharing the Gospel at Easter

 
Eleanor Elms | March 21st 2019

I have to admit, when I think about Easter, evangelism doesn’t spring to mind. We’re pretty comfortable with Christmas evangelism; inviting neighbours along to carol services, perhaps engaging with friends on what Christmas means for them and how they celebrate. But Easter? Most of my non-Christian friends don’t really care about Easter. They’re glad for time off work and an excuse to eat chocolate, but that’s about it.

But in some ways, that makes Easter an even better opportunity for evangelism. After all, almost everyone in our culture makes a big deal out of Christmas… but it’s really only Christians who make a big deal out of Easter. Embracing and celebrating this season as something precious makes Christians distinctive. It’s an opportunity to say to our friends, “This is something amazing that I’m absolutely passionate about, and I want to share it with you.” Who can argue with that?

So I’ve been challenged to grasp opportunities to share the gospel this Easter. Why not surprise a friend or guests at church with the gift of a book or tract that explains the Easter message? Bundling it up with some chocolate makes a lovely little Easter gift, and says, “This stuff matters”!

Easter provides an excellent opportunity to engage with non-Christian families. A children’s book about Easter is a very accessible explanation of the Christian message for many young families.

It’s the perfect price (under £4!) for buying a few copies and distributing amongst your parent friends or if you lead a kids’ group at Church, could you consider a bulk order to give away in the last toddler group before Easter?
