Share Gospel with unbelievers
For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. 6For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,”a made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:5 & 6

How to Memorize Scripture
“I know of no other single practice in the Christian life more rewarding, practically speaking, than memorizing Scripture. . . . No other single exercise pays greater spiritual dividends! Your prayer life will be strengthened. Your witnessing will be sharper and much more effective. Your attitudes and outlook will begin to change. Your mind will become alert and observant. Your confidence and assurance will be enhanced. Your faith will be solidified” -Chuck Swindoll (Growing Strong in the Seasons of Life [Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 1994], p. 61).
Place an emphasis on one word of verse at a time Example: John 3:16a FOR God so loved the world, for GOD so loved the world, for God SO loved the world for God so LOVED the world …and so on.
Review, Read, Recite, Repeat Example: John 1:1–3  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  He was in the beginning with God.  All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.
