11 May Gathering the Lost 101
Do you remember the first time you thought you were in love? You had a glow about you and you told everyone that would listen about this wonderful person in your life. Well, sharing the good news of Jesus Christ is just as exciting as you tell others about the love of your life. Sharing our faith with others can seem uncomfortable, but it really is quite simple. Here is an illustration of how to minister salvation to someone. Smile with the joy of the Lord. Strike up a conversation with them to gauge where they are. Share relevant portions of your testimony demonstrating God’s goodness. Ask if they know the Lord, if not, and they are willing, lead them in this simple prayer:
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23
Father, forgive me; I have sinned. I believe Jesus Christ died for my sins, resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life in Jesus’ name I pray, Amen!
