FW: Be Resonable


Be reasonable


Twice it says Paul "reasoned" with people Acts 17:2, 18:4. We should do the same! I want to do the same with you about witnessing. To review; 1. Never ask a person, "Are you a Christian." All church members think they are 2. Never say, as some tracts start out, "You are a sinner." You offend them. Say rather, "We are all in the same boat, we have all done wrong, we have all sinned, haven't we?" The reason for saying, "We have all done wrong" many think of sin only as murder or some heinous crime and they have not done that. All know they have done wrong but don't think of it as sin. Getting them to admit they have done wrong and equating it with sin, I find, gets them to admit they have sinned.

The pollution of sin

Reason by saying, "If you had a glass of pure clean water and someone put one drop of poison or filth in it would you drink it?" "Of course not" is the obvious answer. "One drop would pollute the whole glass, wouldn't it?" Just so one sin, pollutes us and we are unclean and unfit to go to heaven." This always gets the right response from them,

The penalty of sin

Graciously say, "God says, the wages of sin is death." Not just physical death but it is a spiritual crime and it separates us from God.

The good news

The good news is that "Christ died for our sins" paid the debt in full and rose again so He can be our Savior and forgive us our sins." He did not make a down payment for our sins or a partial payment but paid the debt in full. I have found, you must say "Christ died for our sins" over and over for them to catch on. A soul winner must know and say it clearly, that "the gospel," Christ died for our sins and rose again, "is the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes." How can they believe it, if it is not specifically said? Make sense? This is the key to leading people to Christ. If you leave out anything, you must not leave out the gospel or you see no results or your results will be false. I cannot stress this enough.

O dear people, I find so many people are wide open to listen to the gospel if you genuinely care and graciously share the gospel.

Prayer:  Father, bless Your witnesses and help us to get the gospel to lost and dying people, in Jesus name. All because of Calvary, sumner
