    Teaching kids to share God's Word is more than sitting in a classroom and telling them to do so. Think about it - how often have you sat in the church pew and heard the pastor tell the congregation to go tell someone about Jesus today? Or invite someone to come tonight?

    Did you rush out of church to find someone to tell about Him or did you go home or out to eat?

    More than likely, you did the later - eat.

    The thing is - we need to GO tell people and not wait for them to come to us. If we wait until the 'time is right' or when 'God sends someone in your path', we may never get to share God's Word the way He intended for us to.

    The bible tells us to go out and teach all nations.

    Matthew 28:19 (KJV)
    19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
    Without us going out to teach and tell others about God, how will they ever know? Yes, there are thousands of missionaries out there along with pastors telling the lost about the Word of God.
    We can sit back and rest assured that someone will tell the lost about Christ. We can even make sure to give our money to support the missionaries out in the field risking their lives to tell others. But, that isn't what God commands us to do.
    He says for us to teach all nations - not support those who do. (Of course, we do need to support them along with doing our part.)
    The bible also says, faith comes through hearing the Word of God. So, how can the lost have faith in something they've never heard?
    Romans 10:17 (KJV)
    So then faith [cometh] by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

    How to Teach Kids to Share God's Word

    The best way to teach kids to share the Word of God is by doing it! Over the next few weeks, come up with a plan to visit people in the community, go to a nursing home, have a FREE family night with games and food, put on a play, deliver food to a family who are struggling, or anything else you can come up with to get people who normally do not attend church in a position to tell them about the Word of God.
    Make sure the kids are involved through the whole process especially older children. Teens and pre-teens are at an age that sharing God's Word may feel awkward if they have never done it.
    Like many Christians, teens have sat in a classroom on in a pew 'listening' only.
    Now is the time to get up and DO!
    Remember, Jesus told four unlikely fishermen to follow him and he would make the fishers of men instead of fish!
    This is what we are to do - follow Jesus and become fishers of men!
    Matthew 28:18-20 KJV
    18 And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.
    19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
    20And they straightway left their nets, and followed him
     We should leave our nets and follow him NOW!
    Plan on making it a routine to 'spread God's Word' not just once a year. Children (and adults) learn by repetition, so be sure to repeat telling others about God.
