Do’s and Don’t’s

Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.

Have you ever said something and immediately thought, “Why on earth did I say it that way?!” There are plenty of times when we feel like slinking away for saying the wrong thing, but here’s some good news! The Word of the Lord does not return void! Now, this doesn’t mean you walk up to everyone you want to reach with the Gospel and hit them over the head with a Bible saying the wrong thing. Concentrate on the portion of the verse that bears on the discussion at the moment, without assuming the person you’re talking to knows much about the Bible. Stress the positive benefits of the Gospel like the unspeakable joy you have because Heaven is a free gift! Trust that the Holy Spirit will do His work; you just need to be obedient. Above all, be kind and prayerful when sharing the Gospel so everyone you talk to can see the goodness of God through you.
