Five Things You Must Know and One Thing You Must Do
When I first got saved, I wanted to tell everyone the good news of Jesus Christ. Here is a quick and easy five step explanation that I, along with our church members use to share the gospel to those we meet. I have deliberately kept it simple and short, (mainly the main points and the verses that support them) so that you can tailor it to the people you are witnessing to. I hope this outline will be a blessing to you as you share the gospel.
1) The Bible is the Word of God
2 Timothy 3:16, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”
2 Peter 1:21, “For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of Godspake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.”
2) Jesus is the God of the Bible
Isaiah 9:6, “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
Isaiah 7:14, “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”
John 14:9, “Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?”
Revelation 1:8, “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.”
3) We are All Sinners
Romans 3:10, “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:”
Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”
4) Because of Our Sin We are Spiritually Dead and Deserve to go to Hell
Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Romans 5:12, “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:”
5) Jesus Paid for Our Sin by His Death on the Cross, and He Rose from the Dead, that We Might be Reunited with God
Romans 5:8, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
1 Corinthians 15:3-5, “”For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:
Those are the five Things you must know, now there is one thing you must do!
Call on Jesus and receive what He had done for you.
Romans 10:9-10, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
Romans 10:12, “For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.”
