Witnessing to Your Fellow Teens



The cry for the gospel is everywhere. It may come from a desperate homeless man, a struggling family member, or an unloved teen. How are we to respond to this cry?

"Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time. Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer every man." (Col. 4:5-6)

Teenagers everywhere need to hear the good news. In this day and age, teens are desperately in need of Jesus. Teen pregnancy, suicide, drug abuse, and crime are all real things in our world. Teens are looking for something or someone to fill them up but they always walk away empty.

All teens are looking for is love, and when they don't get it from friends or family they turn to other things, But what they don't realize is that none of these things can satisfy.

The young adults growing up in our culture are searching for something more. And the thing is, we have exactly what they need! Young adults need Jesus!

And how will they find out about Him if no one tells them?

Many Christian teenagers feel they aren't adequate to share Christ or they think it would be too awkward and uncomfortable. But teens tend to be more receptive when another teen is sharing with them, and you might be surprised at the interest they could take.

Other teens will appreciate it when you reach out and show that you're genuinely interested in them and their eternal destinies.

The small uncomfortableness  or awkwardness you feel is nothing compared to the joy of seeing a soul rescued or a seed planted.

So why are we sitting around?

"The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he could send forth labourers into his harvest." (Matt. 10:2)

Maybe you know an unsaved teen who you can witness to, or maybe you could make a couple new friends and share Jesus. Maybe you could do something as simple as handing a tract to a total stranger. You never know what God could do.
