Here are ideas from a Wiki “how to” list, with my alternate suggestions offered for your consideration. May I suggest that we rename “Earth Day”, “Proclaiming the Truth from God’s Word Day” or “Preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ Day”. Let’s use this day to exalt Christ, the Creator of heaven and earth.
1. Go Green.
-Just Go. Jesus said to “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” Mark16:15.
2. Plant trees.
-Plant the good seed of the Word of God. The Lord will send someone to water them, then He will bring the harvest.
3. Make nature crafts.
-Make your own gospel tracts.
4. Learn more about the environment.
-Learn more of the Word of God, so you will be prepared to share the gospel biblically.
5. Reduce, reuse and recycle all day long.
-Preach, proclaim and prophesy all day long.
6. Get children to recycle their old toys and games.
-Get children to join you (and learn by watching you), as you go out to share the gospel with someone.
7. Pick up litter from the roadways.
-Drop some “lit” where someone might find it, read it and by God’s grace, be saved.
8. Sing “Earth” songs.
-Sing “praise to the Lord” songs.
9. Hold an Earth Day fair.
-Hold a street meeting with testimonies and open air Gospel preaching.
10. Teach others about the environment.
-Teach the lost the Truth of the Gospel. Teach believers how to share the Gospel biblically.
11. Engage others in conversations about your environmental concerns.
-Engage others in conversations about your concern for their soul, and about the holiness of God, about sin, righteousness, the judgment to come and the Gospel of grace.
12. Ride your bike to save energy.
-Ride your bike to go find someone to witness to.
13. Remember, Earth Day is every day.
-Remember, being a witness of Jesus Christ is every day.
