VerseD: Romans 10:17

So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.
Romans 10:17, NASB

How can others come to faith in Christ unless we tell them?

The Father enjoys using His faithful children to spread the gospel of His Son.

VerseD: Luke 2:13-14

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”
Luke 2:13‭-‬14, ESV

Some teach angelic beings do not sing, or at least not anymore, since The Fall.

Is it too much to think they may have at the birth of the Son of God?

Regardless, they worship Jesus. May we join with them!

VerseD: Isaiah 7:14

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
Isaiah 7:14, ESV

Science may say it is possible that a woman could possibly conceive without a man, but how many times has it ever happened?

Just once. With genetics different from Mary (as evidenced by His being male), so that we may know God did this.

VerseD: John 3:17

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
John 3:17, ESV

In His first advent, Jesus came to seek and she the lost.

It is His second advent where those who do not believe will be under condemnation.

This is the time to believe.

VerseD: 1 John 4:9

In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him.
1 John 4:9, ESV

The ultimate proof of God’s love for us?

He sent His only Son to die on a cross that we may be brought into eternal life with Him (by simply believing in Him.)

VerseD: Matthew 1:21

“She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.”
Matthew 1:21, ESV

Trust the promises of God. Like Mary did, we can trust that the One who saves is returning!

VerseD: Romans 1:16

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
Romans 1:16, ESV

Do not be intimidated with sharing the gospel or that you believe.

You should be ready to explain why you believe, but it is okay (as a young Christian, at least) to admit you are not entirely sure of all of the reasons.

Just share how you came to faith.
