What does it mean to share the Gospel? | Christian Gamer Bible Study

Most of you reading this have found your way onto Twitch or Mixer or some other streaming platform where Christian gamers/streamers mention wanting to share the gospel. When you ask them to clarify or define what it means to share the gospel, you get a variety of answers and definitions.

  • Living my life reflecting God’s love

  • Tagging social media as a Christian

  • Not shoving my faith down someone’s throat

  • Answering questions as they come up during my stream about my faith

  • Building a community where folks can learn about Jesus

  • Stream panel information about Jesus

  • Sharing my testimony

  • Making relationships

  • Daily bible verses

  • Praying for folks on stream

  • Raising money for organizations

  • Donating to my local church and Christian charities

Please don’t get me wrong on this. While all of these are great and show our faith through our works and living our faith out loud, it is not the gospel message.

It’s not the sharing of the gospel.

It all seems rather too passive to me.

Gospel means good news. The gospel message is the good news of Jesus Christ that, even though we are sinners by nature and action, we are offered salvation from death and hell through Jesus' finished work on the cross.

For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. 2 Corinthians 5:21 ESV

“The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.” Mark 1:15 ESV

I am just as guilty as everyone else who streams. So here is my confession of the sin of omission in not actively sharing the gospel.

Active sharing. Of the gospel. Each time I stream.

What does this look like? What kind of motto or expression can I share with others when asked what it means to share the gospel?

  • It’s the active and intentional speaking of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection and everyone’s need for a savior through media content, community engagement, discipleship, and the cultivation of leaders.

  • It’s the observed actions of living a Jesus centered and Jesus filled life in all endeavors and outlets that must bear fruit

  • Prepared and ready at all times for God’s divine interactions and situations

  • It is not passive nor is it just to be absorbed by others in watching

  • It is not waiting for the right moment

There it is.

Start every day brewing

over the Word of God

Morning Brew is a Christian living blog and community that encourages followers of Jesus to start every morning brewing over the Word of God, rejoicing in the Lord, learning more about who He is, and thanking Him for His salvation, provisions and blessings. We are here to grow in our faith and relationship with God every day.

Through our Bible study and Christian living blog, Christian gaming community, women's Bible study and fellowship group, reading plans, and other groups and offerings we strive to build one another up as the body of Christ and edify one another by sharing in what God teaches and reveals to each of us on our faith journeys.

Our Bible study blog covers a multitude of topics relevant to Christian living and practical Biblical application. We focus on deep topical studies, Bible book overviews and  Bible translation studies in our God's Word category. Godly Living is all about living life as a believer in Christ and features categories for everyday Christian living, hobbies, food, and Christian homemaking. Within Godly Abiding we dive into Biblical application within a Godly family, self care, prayer and living an orderly life.

Our gaming community, which includes our Christian ESO guild and Christian Minecraft Realm, as well as our Christian women's group, the Vineyard, and all other events and offerings are designed to foster meaningful Christian to Christian fellowship. Our mission is to grow in faith and learn how to become better examples of Christ together in all areas of our lives.​
