If you’re fixing a sink, you either know which tools you’ll need or you don’t. If it’s the latter, you can do some research or ask someone for help. But what about the tools necessary for sharing the gospel?
In case your evangelism tool box is a little empty, we thought we’d pass on some helpful implements that we think you should consider stocking.
- Prayer – Get on Your Knees: God has not given you the ability to bring anyone to salvation without His help, and prayer is a great place to start. In fact, there may be no better place to begin than at the throne of grace.
- Power – Use Scripture: The same power that God used to raise Jesus from the dead lives and breathes in the words of the gospel. You may have great debating skills or be highly persuasive but faith comes through hearing the Scriptures that testify about our Savior.
- Possibilities – Open Your Heart: God is not locked into one particular way of drawing people toward Christ. Learn how your friend thinks and what they like, and utilize a method of sharing that fits them. There is only one message but it can be delivered in many ways.
We went to the Tool Idea Store (aka the Internet) to see what might be helpful for delivering the message of salvation. Here are a few we found.
- The Hope DVD
- A Memory Cross
- Build a Gospel Gift Box
- Effective Evangelism Training
- Questioning Evangelism
Do you have a favorite tool that you use when sharing the Good News? If so, we’d love to hear it. Who knows, we might even want to use it the next time we get the privilege of sharing God’s plan of redemption.
