Can you think of a time when you put your foot in your mouth? Everyone can recall a moment they wanted to blend in with the wall behind them because of something they said. We’re all human and it happens! But we don’t want that to happen when we share the Gospel.
Now, I’m not saying that if you stumble over your words or something doesn’t come out exactly the way you rehearsed, that God won’t use it. Not at all! The Bible shows us time and time again that God can use anyone, even someone who stutters, like Moses, or a long-winded preacher, like Paul! Moses told God he wasn’t a good speaker and was easily tongue tied. God used Him. Paul preached for so long that a man in the crowd fell out of a window because he fell asleep! But, God still used him.
I want to give you a couple of things to think about when preparing to share the Gospel. You don’t have to be scared to start a conversation – we can help you get started!
Bringing up an event or something you’ve done recently at church is an easy segue into a Gospel conversation. Sharing with someone how much you love your church and asking them whether or not they go to church is simple.
Another way to bring up the Gospel is to simply ask! Asking someone if they’ve given much thought to spiritual matters, or if they’re sure they’re going to Heaven one day might be bold, but it gives the other person a chance to really consider their heart condition.
Be prayerful about witnessing and trust the Lord to give you the words to speak. He will be faithful to do it!
This is our focus this week at Evangelism Explosion through our social media channels and our daily broadcast. Visit ShareLife.Today for resources to help you start a Gospel conversation.
May God richly bless you this week as you speak for Jesus!
