Summary: Many church people today have NEVER led anyone to Jesus. This sermon gives them ways to do that.

Bringing Your Friends to Jesus

John 1:35-42

[35] Again, the next day, John stood with two of his disciples.

[36] And looking at Jesus as He walked, he said, "Behold the Lamb of God!"

[37] The two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.

[38] Then Jesus turned, and seeing them following, said to them, "What do you seek?" They said to Him, "Rabbi" (which is to say, when translated, Teacher), "where are You staying?"

[39] He said to them, "Come and see." They came and saw where He was staying, and remained with Him that day (now it was about the tenth hour). [40] One of the two who heard John speak, and followed Him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.

[41] He first found his own brother Simon, and said to him, "We have found the Messiah" (which is translated, the Christ).

[42] And he brought him to Jesus. Now when Jesus looked at him, He said, "You are Simon the son of Jonah. You shall be called Cephas" (which is translated, A Stone).

This is one of those stories in the Bible

that has a very happy ending.

Andrew had chosen to follow Jesus

and knew that his own brother, Simon, needed to be saved too.

Simon Peter did get saved

and became one of the greatest preachers of his day.

Thousands came to Jesus because of his obedience.

Let me ask you a question.

Have you ever led someone to Jesus?

Has anyone ever got saved because you led them to Jesus?

That is something that is missing in Christianity.

There is a lack of spreading of the Gospel

in order to get folks saved.

Many Christians do not know how to lead a person to Jesus.

Evangelism is necessary for a number of Scriptural reasons:

Jesus gave us a commandment in Matthew 28:19-20

[19] Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, [20] teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen.

That’s not a suggestion!

That’s a commandment!

Listen to Romans 10:13-15:

[13] For "whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved." [14] How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? [15] And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: "How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!"

Listen to Proverbs 11:30:

The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, And he who wins souls is wise.

Every day, people are dying without any hope of Heaven

because Christians do not know how to bring others to Jesus

as Andrew did.

Many who do know how to lead others to faith in Jesus

refuse to do so!

Today, I want to give you a soul-winning tool

to help you bring your friends, family, and others to Jesus.

There are 5 facts you must tell folks in order to lead them to Jesus:

Fact #1. They can know for sure that they will go to Heaven.

1 John 5:13 These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.

So the first thing you do is ask them,

“If you died today, do you know for sure

that you would go to Heaven?”

The Bible says they can know for sure.

1 Corinthians 15:19 says If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable.

Bible hope is not what we think we will get.

It’s what we know we will receive because of God’s promises!

Some people will say, “No one can know for sure.”

The Bible says that’s not true.

We can have a “know-so-salvation!”

Fact #2. They should understand that we are all sinners.

Romans 3:10 “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.”

All of us are born with a sin nature that is against God.

Jeremiah 17:9 "The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked;

Who can know it?

Ecclesiastes 7:20 For there is not a just man on earth who does good and does not sin.

(Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”

None of us is as good as Jesus.

We have fallen short of Jesus’ perfection.
