We must tell everyone about the salvation that God has provided in the cross and resurrection of Christ. Here are some practical tips about how to share your faith:
What is the message of the Gospel that we need to share?
You have successfully shared the Gospel when you communicate, and people understand these three points:
1) Bad news: God is holy and just, and He is going to punish our sin.
2) Good news: Jesus took our punishment when He died and rose again, and now through the blood of Jesus there is a way for us to be made right with God.
3) Make a decision: Ask people to make a decision. Either to forsake sin and give 100 % of their life to Jesus, or refuse to do so.
The Power of Signs and wonders:
The message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing. 1 Cor. 1:18 That is why God didn’t intend for the Gospel to be presented in the “persuasive words of human wisdom, but in the demonstration of the Holy Spirit and power” 1 Cor. 2:4. Jesus didn’t just command us to share the Gospel (Matt. 28:19,) but He also empowered us to fulfill this command through the supernatural manifestation of the power of the Holy Spirit. Acts 1:8 That is why every church plant and every move of God in the Bible is always associated with signs and wonders.
So don’t shy away from laying hands on the sick, and pray that the world will know that Jesus is not just a theory, but He is the true living God.

W: How are you…We are from Franconia Community…Do you have a church or a religious background?
S: Yea, I go to St. Patrick Church.
W: Great, so let me ask you, if you were to die today. will you go to heaven or hell?
S: (95 % of the time) Heaven.
W: Why do you think you are going to go to heaven? Or how can anyone go to heaven?
S: (95% of the time) Because I am a good person.
W: Great…There is actually a simple way to find out if you are a good person. Have you heard of the 10 commandants?
S: Sure or maybe.
W: Great. One commandment says “you should not steal.” Have you ever taken anything that is not yours?
W: You shall not commit adultery. And Jesus said in the NT, that if lyou ooked lustfully after a woman, you committed adultery in your heart. Have you ever had sex outside of marriage or lusted after a person?
W: You shall not bear false witness. Have you ever lied?
S: Yes. W: So if you are to stand before God today and He is going to judge you by His own law, are you going to be innocent or guilty? S: Guilty W: Well, the good news is that Jesus came from Heaven and died on the cross and bore God’s judgment on your sins. John 3:16 says “For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that whoever believe in Him should not perish but have an everlasting life.” All what you have to do is to be willing to leave your sins and commit to live God’s way from now on. If you have that desire, He will give you the power to change.
