When you share the Gospel with someone, what do you tell them about God?
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. Well, you can start by telling them that there are two important dimensions of God’s character that they need to understand. The first is that God is loving and merciful – therefore He doesn’t want to punish us. In fact, you won’t find three more profound words than “God is love!” And you can find them in 1 John 4 verse 8. The second dimension of God’s character is that God is just and therefore He must punish our sin. Exodus 34 verse 7 says that God will not allow the guilty to go unpunished. So, we human beings have quite a problem. But God solved our problem in the person of Jesus Christ. Now, while it’s virtually impossible to illustrate God to someone, we do have a video that will help walk you through how to share who God is with your friends, relatives, work associates and neighbors.
