Summary: Every one of us in this room knows someone who is outside of Christ. Now it is time to share with them the Gospel.

  Study Tools

I) SETTING THE STAGE

Before you can share the Gospel with someone you must be completely convinced that your life is much better now then it was before Christ. You must also believe that the same will be true of anyone who receives Christ

If this is true then we begin by:

Praying Hard

Talking to people individually

Peaking curiosity

Rely on reciprocal reflexes

Seizing split second opportunities

Not underestimating the degree of interest

II) MAKE THE MESSAGE CLEAR

A) It is the responsibility of every believer to be able to make a clear presentation of the Gospel.

1 Peter 3:15

2 Tim. 4:2

B) Some basics that will help us make our presentation clear

1) God

He is loving

He is holy

He is just

2) Christ

He died in our place.

He paid a debt He did not owe

I owed a debt I could not pay

I needed someone to wash my sins away

And now I sing a brand new song

Amazing Grace, all day long

Christ Jesus paid the debt

That I could never pay

Author Unknown

Some might ask “Why did the debt have to be paid? Why couldn’t God just forgive and forget?”

3) You

Personal response is essential

4) Religion VS Christianity

Religion is spelled D-O

Christianity is spelled D-O-N-E
