WITNESSING TOOLS

We are compiling a list of resources that may help your relationship with the Lord and others. Please check back regularly for websites and other resources to be added:

  • The Way of the Master - A wonderful website with tools and encouragement on sharing the gospel with others
  • Witnessing to Others

    See the Lost:

    Take note of how many people you come into contact with on a fairly regular basis. This needs to include everyone,

    family, friends, coworkers, classmates, waitresses, gas station attendants, etc.

    Love the Lost:

    Now that you have worked at identifying your area of influence, seek to show them that you care.

    1. Always be kind, even if they are not.

    2. Learn their name and remember it.

    3. Leave a tip based on Grace not service.

    4. Pay attention to their mood. Look to see if they are having a bad day and offer words of encouragement.

    5. Really listen when others speak.

    6. Offer to pray for them should they share problems or frustrations. (And then do it.)

    7. Ask them about the situation the next time you see them.Tell them you prayed for them.

    Find out where they are:

    Finding out where people are spiritually is not as hard as you might think. Here are a few suggested topics or questions

    that can help.

  • What do you think about Jesus?
  • Have you ever thought about what happens after death? (Do you believe in an afterlife?)
  • Do you go to Church? (Why do you go to church?)
  • What do you think it means to be a Christian?
  • If you believed something that was wrong, would you want to know about it?
  • How do you think a person gets into heaven? (if they believe in heaven).
  • Help the lost know they are lost.

    A person who does not know they are sick does not seek a doctor. Until a person realizes they are a sinner and will stand in judgment then they don’t seek a savior. Here are some questions that help them to see:

  • Do you consider yourself a good person. (Most will say yes)
  • Have you ever lied? That makes you a liar
  • Have you ever taken something that does not belong to you? That makes you a thief.
  • Have you ever looked at a person and lusted? Then according to Jesus you have committed adultery.
  • Have you ever been angry or hateful toward someone? Then according to Jesus you have committed murder in your heart.
  • As bad as this may seem we need to allow the conscience of a person to bring them to an understanding of their lost state.
