Into: Billboard Sign - (Talk about how we live in a visual society today and that people need to see images inorder to relate to things, like billboard signs)
About 1980 years ago, depending when you believe Jesus was crucified, God sent His only begotten Son, Jesus, to die on the cross for our sins. In the process God gave the world a love that is beautiful, sacrificial and invitational, yet very simple. Anyone can experience this love and once they have they can share Jesus with others. Would we talk about God’s love more openly to people if we had a clear and simple way of doing it? But before we can understand this simple way of sharing, we must first understand ourselves, people and the Gospel.
Self – Not perfect but chosen to share God’s perfect love (2 Cor. 4:8-10). Paul admitted his struggles and so should we. We need to draw our strength from someone other then yourself: God.
People – No two people alike and we must understand that what worked when you became a Christian may not work on the other man. We must never change the truth of the Gospel, but we must seek ways to explain God’s love so it makes sense to them, like Paul says in 1 Cor. 9:22.
Gospel – It is about God’s love and our response to it. It is so simple, yet we make it so complicated. When sharing Jesus we need to do what Paul tells us in Col. 4:4, “proclaim it clearly.”
To start Simply Sharing Jesus, first start with a question, something like this, “Has anyone explained the meaning of the Bible to you in one simple picture? If you are interested, I can draw it for you.”
