3 Amazing Points of Sharing the Gospel Clearly!
OK. The truth about me–I get my thrills from sharing the gospel with people. I’ve gone skydiving, scuba diving, rock climbing, and repelling. But there’s nothing like explaining the good news of Jesus with someone–escecially when that lightbulb goes off above their head! You know what I mean? That second when they get it, when they understand the truth of what Jesus did for us, is what thrills me the most.
And there’s something so cool and clear that I’ve learned to share with people regarding the gospel. When I share this, most people tilt their head and say, “Wow. I’ve never thought about it like that before. That makes total sense!”
So now I’d like to share this with you! I didn’t come up with it, but I learned this from my training at EvanTell in Dallas, TX. They specialize in teaching believers how to share the clear, simple gospel effectively to anyone, anywhere, and at any time. So here’s what they taught me:
Take a look at the 3 circles above. After I share the Bad News/Good News with someone, I like to tell them about these 3 amazing circles. And I start with this question, “What are you trusting in to get to heaven?” I like this question, because it gets right to the point. Then I follow the question with the 1st circle.
- Circle 1. If I’m trusting in my good works (W) to get me to heaven, then I’m telling God that His Son’s death on the cross was worthless. Afterall, why would Jesus have to die if I just had to try to be good enough?
- Circle 2. If I’m trusting in Christ + my good works (C+W) to get me to heaven, then I’m telling God that Jesus’ death was insufficient. It would be as if Jesus said, “OK. I did my part, now you do yours. I just took care of your downpayment.” But the beautiful truth is that when our Lord was on the cross, He said, “Paid in full.” Which brings us to the 3rd circle.
- Circle 3. If I’m trusting in Christ, alone, (C) to get me to heaven, then I’m saying that His death on the cross was sufficient to save me.
So I share these 3 circles, and then I ask, “Where are you? Which one do you find yourself in?” And I’ve seen more people trust Christ after seeing this clear truth. Try it.
