"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
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
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.
