  • Common mistakes …
  • Little or no prayer beforehand
  • Little/no reliance on the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:8)
  • We use church words such as saved, lost, walk the aisle, etc. most people do not understand.

Some examples of being harsh…these methods only distracts us from the

REAL Message!

What is that message?

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

When witnessing and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ, we are going to be attacked spiritually…

“And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ who is the image of God.” 2 Corinthians 4:3-4

When witnessing to people, why are we, as Christians, surprised when “they” do not act with the same worldview as us?

Remember, the Bible says the gospel is offensive to those who are perishing…

We have one thing to share with the lost and dying world…US!…

Our testimony of what God did for us and what He is doing in us today…

Do you have a testimony today?
