I’m a born-again Christian. I like to go out witnessing using Way of the Master techniques. The basis for it is how Jesus, Paul, Peter, and other men in the Bible witnessed and preached.
In Luke 18, Jesus talked to a rich young ruler. He asked the rich young ruler whether he had kept the Ten Commandments, and went through a few of them. In John 4, Jesus spoke to the woman at the well, where he only went through one of the Ten Commandments (adultery, #7).
In Romans 3:19, 20 it says, “Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be silenced and the whole world held accountable to God. 20Therefore no one will be declared righteous in his sight by observing the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of sin.”
God has provided us with the law to put an end to arguments, and show us what sin is. It makes us aware of our desperate need for a savior, and it’s a schoolmaster to bring us to Christ. (Galatians 3:24).
I’ve only been witnessing since May, 2006, and I have a lot to learn. But, I hope that this blog will be an encouragment to you to share your faith, too. Philemon 6 says, “I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ.” God has kept the promise he made in Philemon 6 in my life. Witnessing regularly has made the Bible more fascinating than ever; it’s made my prayer life much less selfish.
The majority of people in this world are going to spend eternity in hell. God has given me a love for them that helps me overcome my fear, and speak boldly. I’m very introverted, but I’ve been able to overcome my personality weaknesses. So, I have two questions for you.
- Are you going to be obedient to the Great Commission, or ignore it?
- Do you care about people spending eternity in hell enough to risk saying something?
