“My life isn’t perfect. But I know someone whose is.”
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. Perhaps you’ve decided that you can’t witness because there are things in your life that are displeasing to the Lord. But, if we remember that the Gospel is not about us and our lives, but about Jesus and His life, then we’ll be able to join the growing casino army of bold witnesses.
We know from Scripture that everyone has a problem with sin. The Good News of the Gospel is that God demonstrated His own love for us that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Clearly, this means that His love, grace and forgiveness can never be earned and will never be deserved. The person who has known Christ for fifty years still doesn’t merit or deserve any of the love, grace and forgiveness that comes his way. So, go out and witness with boldness and confidence, along with love and compassion.
We know that we’re not perfect, but we have the privilege of introducing them to the One who is perfect – Jesus, the Son of God. Need help knowing what to say?
