Your friend has three minutes to live can you effectively and clearly share the Gospel? You meet someone at a store or park and only have a few minutes to chat with them – can you share the Gospel? How many of us get tongue-tied when it comes to actually sharing the Gospel? It is easy to talk about church, what the Lord is doing in our lives and general comments about Jesus – but what about sharing the important reason why Jesus came to this earth to live, die and rise again.
It is not part of our natural conversation to tell someone they are not good and they are destined for hell. It brings us out of our comfort zone. This post today is for me as well as my readers in helping to spur us on to get better equipped to share our faith with the lost family, friends, and acquaintances around us and that the Lord has put in our sphere of influence.
What is the Gospel?
The Bible says because of our sin we are separated from God (Isaiah 59:2), dead in our sins (Romans 6:23), cannot please God (Romans 3:10-11) and will suffer damnation in hell
(2 Thessalonians 1:9)
We are all guilty of sin before a holy God.
The Bible is clear that I am not saved by my works but by my faith in who Jesus Christ is and in Christ alone. I must repent (turn from) of my sins and put my faith and trust in Jesus Christ.
