The Gospel, The Good News

There Is Only One Way: Does That Seem Too Narrow Minded?


"Sumner, our church is giving out the ticket to heaven. We have a hard time keeping it stocked. Our people love using the tract" WOW, hope yours does the same!

Sharing the Gospel with Those at Your Door

This is extremely important. Please keep it and learn it to be an effective witness.

Sharing the gospel: Give a gospel tract
Start off by giving them a good gospel tract and saying, "You will like this. It tells you how to go to heaven. May I ask you a very important question? All will say, "Yes". "Do you know for sure you are going to heaven one day? May I tell you how I came to know how to go to heaven."

Right here you need to take charge of the conversation and speak with authority, not with arrogance. Satan gets mad right about here and would love to interrupt and get you side tracked.

Giving the gospel
Please don't start out saying, "The first thing you need to know is that you are a sinner." Most take it you are saying they are but you are not. They are offended right away. Better to say, "We are all in the same boat, we have all done wrong, we have all sinned, haven't we?" I have never had one person deny they have sinned when I present it that way and I have told this to hundreds upon hundreds of people.

If you put one drop of filth or poison in a glass of water, it pollutes the whole glass. Sin does that to you and me. It pollutes us and we are unfit to go to heaven. Also "the wages of sin is death." There is a penalty that has to be paid for our sins,

I have some really good news for you. Christ suffered and died for our sins, paid the debt in full. He did not just "die on a cross," those two thieves died on a cross. He did not just "die for us", those military people are dying for us. The difference is "Christ died for our sins" paid our debt in full.

He was buried, the proof that He was dead.

Jesus rose from the dead and is alive today. No other so called "savior" ever died for our sins and rose again and is alive today.

Jesus was seen by hundreds of people, proof that He died for our sins and rose from the dead. The whole issue is did Jesus die for your sins or didn't He. God said He did. Will you believe God that Jesus paid your debt of sin too?

Just like a man says, "Yes, I take this woman to be by wife" we need to tell God, "Yes, I will receive the Lord Jesus as my Savior right now " God said, "As many as received Him to them he gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name" John 1:12.. Does that make sense?

Would you like to pray with me right now and tell God you want to receive the Lord Jesus as your Savior too? If they say yes, ask them to bow their head and pray out loud with you. You lead them in what to pray.

Pray, "Dear God- (pause and let them repeat after you) I know I have sinned too- I am so sorry-, I believe the Lord Jesus died for my sins- I believe He paid my debt in full and rose again- Lord Jesus I receive you as my Savior- come into my heart- give me a new birth and the power to live for you. In Jesus name.

Now tell them, God said, "He that believes on the Son, HAS everlasting life." Do you believe on the Lord Jesus as your savior? Do you have everlasting life" Almost all will say yes right then. More on assurance and follow up next time.

Be ye fishers of men -- you catch them & He'll clean them.

PRINT THIS OUT so you can go over it several times and know what you are going to say. You are loved by God and me, All Because of Calvary, ABC Sumner
