Christians urged to share on Bible

Mere Naleba
Saturday, July 05, 2014

CHRISTIANS in Fiji and the Pacific have been encouraged to build their faith and to share the words of the Bible with themselves in order to celebrate the life of Jesus Christ.

National co-ordinator of the Bible Society of the South Pacific Charles Cleary said the event, which was celebrated not only in Fiji but in 16 other countries in the Pacific, was able to share the gospel and truth in the Bible while visiting churches and schools in the Central Division.

Mr Cleary said a team visited 12 schools sharing the good news in the Bible.

"As we celebrate Bible week, we are trying to get people to engage in the Word of God and as we look around society, there is a lot of technology that is around us and a lot of things that distract us from engaging in the Word of God," he said.

"This is just a reminder the Bible week is to engage in the Word of God, not only for this week but we are trying to remind people that the Word of God is important."
