Power posted by John Sorensen on Jun 07, 2016
Athletes always talk about how they can get more power . . . when hitting in baseball, tackling in football, swinging in golf. And, you know, we can add more power when witnessing too.
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. Bible verses used in a Gospel presentation are the power when sharing your faith. Sure we can use stories and illustrations to make a point, but it is Scripture that convicts. So when you’re addressing the important issue of man’s sinfulness and need for a Savior, you can share Romans 3 verse 23: “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Now THAT’S powerful. That verse, alone, may be a lot for your friend to process. And while you need to know the reference when you quote Scripture, in case they ask where the verse is found, you don’t necessarily have to say that, “It says in Romans 3 verse 23.” Instead, you could say that, “the Bible says,” or “We read in the Bible,” and then quote the verse.
