God has chosen every believing woman to carry His message to her sphere of influence as she is filled with and controlled by the Holy Spirit and anointed and equipped with His power.Yes, But How?
"You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you and you shall be witnesses to Me..." Acts 1:8
Going does not necessarily mean leaving home and family, but it does mean making yourself totally available to serve wherever, whenever, and however He directs.
~Evangelism, Women's Study Bible, Thomas Nelson Publishers
Before we can spread light, we must first have the Light.
"The Lord is my Light and my salvation." Psalm 27:1
Next the Light must be our Guide.
"Come and let us walk in the Light of the LORD." Isaiah 2:5
Then we must point others to the Light within us.
"Let your Light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:16Finally, we must help them desire the Light for themselves.
"But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous Light." 1 Peter 2:9Again, How?
We must ask the Lord to help us love -- to be so heartbroken if any of our family, friends, co-workers, or acquaintances do not know Him -- that we are compelled to share the Light within us.
"Those who sow in tears shall reap in joy. He who continually goes forth weeping, bearing seed for sowing, shall doubtless come again rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him." Psalm 126:6Practically speaking, spreading the Light as the candle is directly witnessing to others through our words and observed actions. Spreading the Light as the mirror reflecting it is more a lifestyle decision: we must be so aware of the Light within us that every action... even when we are not being observed... is lived for His glory so that our whole life points to Him.
Time alone with the Light through prayer and studying His word daily is the only way to become that intensely aware of His Light within us.
