“Evangelism is loving people enough to tell them the truth about God.”
Ephesians 4:1, 2 Timothy 4:5, 2 Peter 3:9, 2 Corinthians 4:3-4, John 1:12-13, 2 Corinthians 5:17-20, Colossians 1:27, Philippians 2:5-10, Ephesians 2:10, 1 John 5:10-12
“What’s your spiritual background?”
“What part does God play in your life?”
“Have you ever felt close to God?”
“Would you like to know more about how to begin to know God?”
“If you could know God personally, would you want to?”
“If Christ is standing in the endzone, where are you on the field in relationship to Him?”
“What’s keeping you from crossing over into the endzone?”
“Do you know who God is?”
“Do you know what’s required to get to heaven? Jesus.”
What do you mean by that?
How do you know that to be true?
What if you’re wrong?
Writing from Bill Howard:
“I walk in a daze and yet am conscious. I know myself to be a citizen of another world but live familiarly in this one. I sense a change in my desire, convictions, and beliefs but am still the same person. I love my friends and long for their salvation, but I am strangely out of step with their pagan way of life.
I weep where I once laughed, and laugh where I once wept. I am tender where once I was ruthless, yet unyielding where I once gave way to pressures and temptations. I am a new person, yet the same person… What happened to me? A miracle. I became a Christian!”
