The headstone that marks Helen Cadbury’s final resting place is engraved with the following verse from the Bible:
“I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes…”
Helen’s life was dedicated to others. She enthusiastically encouraged others to change the direction of their lives and to discover God’s grace and salvation through Jesus Christ. We hope that some of these hints will help you too, to point others to Him.
Hint #1: Pray
“Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.” (1 Peter 3:15, NIV)
Pray for opportunities. Make it a habit to pray that you will have opportunities to share and give away a gospel. Sharing is usually done by Christians who plan to do it.
