Share Jesus Christ as Lord with Others
Evangelistic Witness Sample
All of us with the Nehemiah Today ministry value sharing our faith with others. A personal way the individual church leadership and/or members might share faith would be as follows:
“I would like to share with you how the Bible answers that we can become a Christian and have a personal relationship with Christ and faith that gives assurance that in Him we have what it takes to go to heaven if that is all right. There is a word that can be used to answer this question F.A.I.T.H.” [x]
- Ephesians 1:7a
T TURN (A travel illustration may be used.)
-Heaven is eternal life.
HERE: “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly” – John 10:10b
HEREAFTER: “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself: that where I am, there you may be also” – John 14:3
HOW: How can a person have God’s forgiveness, heaven and eternal life, and Jesus as personal Savior and Lord? (Explained based on the F.A.I.T.H. concept of personally “Forsaking All I Trust Him.” Romans 10:9.)
Inquire: Understanding what has been shared, the client would be asked, “Would you like to trust in Christ as your personal Savior and Lord?” If so we have prayer with them.
Referral: If yes, we encourage them to share it with their family members and their pastor if they attend a church. We help them connect with a local church and someone who would adopt and give discipleship coaching. If they say no or I am not ready to do that. Our response is, “Thanks for allowing us to share. Keep it in your prayers as we do. Some one here is always available to offer prayer and spiritual guidance."
