Planting the Seed
1. Familiarize yourself with the scriptures referred to below.
2. As you read the Bible daily, underline additional verses that you will be able to use in witnessing.
Memorize as many as you can.
3. Begin to pray for individuals with whom you might share Christ.
Trust God to provide the opportunities for you to talk with them and the
wisdom to know what to say.
4. Spend time with these friends.
Win their confidence by doing things with them and for them. If they see that you really care about them, they will be more likely to listen when you present the Gospel to them.
5. Pray for opportunities to mention Christ in casual conversation.
For instance you might simply ask “What do you think happens after death?” or “How do you think a person becomes a Christian?” Listen to their ideas and then say “Here’s what I
believe.” In giving your answer, quote scriptures, especially those included in this booklet.
Having a Conversation
To Find Forgiveness:
A is ADMIT
You are a sinner. You need Christ as your Savior, and that all those who call on the Jesus Christ will be saved. You can’t be saved without Him.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.” Romans 3:23-24.
B is BELIEVE
the Lord Jesus Christ is the Son of God. You can know He is Who He says He is through God’s Word.
“For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.”
C is CONFESS
to the Lord and admit to yourself that you have sinned and need the forgiveness that Jesus Christ offers. You can be made righteous before God through the righteousness of Christ.
“Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
I know I am a sinner and need your forgiveness. I believe Christ died in my place, paying the debt of my sins. Today, I turn away from my sin and turn towards Him. I now invite Jesus Christ to come into my heart and life as my personal Savior. I am willing, by your help, to follow and obey Christ as the Lord of my life. Amen.
Let them know that the assurance of their salvation is found in the Word of God.
Invite them to attend church with you.
