Sharing the Gospel with Those at the Door

Use Every Opportunity

The Gospel, The Good News


"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 you and your church do the same!

Witnessing Guide for Believers

Share the gospel with those at your door, in a store, or in their home. Speak calmly; don't come on like gang busters

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. Very briefly tell how you heard God loves you and the Lord Jesus suffered and died for your sins, rose again and was seen by hundreds. How you prayed to receive the Lord Jesus and how God gave you a new birth and changed your life forever.

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.

And 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? Does that make sense?

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? He gives us a brand new spiritual birth with a new nature so we will be changed and can live a new life.

"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 - 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. Tell them how the Bible is our Spiritual food. Ask do you have a Bible? Begin reading the gospel of John. Tell them to read three or four chapters a day and underline verses that answer questions and give them spiritual insight.
