Messiah Lutheran Church :: A WITNESSING SCENARIO

A WITNESSING SCENARIO

Sharing your Faith

 

Turning the conversation into a spiritual one

1) Do you have a church…

2) How is your relationship….

3)  On a scale of 1-10…

Key questions

1) Are you at a point that if you died tonight, could you say for certain that you would go to heaven?

2)  Are you at a point that if you did die tonight and God were to ask you ‘why should I let you into my heaven,’ what would you say?  

 

Transition:

1) God wants you to be certain.  In fact, the Bible says…

2) May I share with you…  

 

G race (Ephesians 2: 8, 9)

1)  Definition –

3)     How can God love all at the same time? 

J esus

            Who he is

                        He is God (John 1: 1-3)

     

                        He is man (I Timothy 2:5)

 

            What he did? 

Holy for us (Hebrews 4: 15; II Corinthians 5: 21)

 

Punished for us (John 19: 30)

                       

                        Arose from the dead (Romans 4:25)

Transition:

How does this become ours? 

F aith  (John 3: 16)

            What do you do with something that is true?  You believe it.  

 

               If there were a million dollars in the bank…

 

If God asked me the question why he should let me into heaven, I would say ….
