Many Christians, of all levels of maturity, can have a hard time knowing where to begin when it comes to sharing their faith with others. Your testimony is always a great starting point and does not need to be a skid row to Knotting Hill story in order to be effective; salvation is always like taking a sock and pulling it inside out, but on a LIFESIZE scale and is therefore, always amazing.
For anyone that is unsure where to start, here is a 6 point, easily memorized method developed by Dare2Share ministries, of how to share your faith in less than five minutes. It’s concise. It’s effective. And it’s life changing. Using the word G.O.S.P.E.L.
The GOSPEL is the power of God unto salvation.
God created us to be with Him. (Genesis 1-2)
Our sins separate us from God. (Genesis 3)
Sins cannot be removed by good deeds. (Genesis 4 – Malachi 4)
Paying the price for sin, Jesus died and rose again. (Matthew – Luke)
Everyone who trusts in Him alone has eternal life. (John)
Life with Jesus starts now and lasts forever. (Acts – Revelation)
That is the GOSPEL. For a more in depth look at each point, please visit LifeIn6Words.com
If you have never made a decision to follow Christ & you would like to do that right now, here is a prayer that means everything if you believe it and pray it to God:
“Dear God, I know that I’m hopelessly lost without you. I realize that I can never be good enough to get into heaven. Right now I believe that Jesus, Your son, died in my place for my sins. I confess my sin to you and ask your forgiveness. Thank you for your forgiveness and for the gift of eternal life. Amen!”
