Welcome back to the six steps review. This week we looked at the final step, which is TALK. Surprising, huh, since the series is called “Six Steps to Talking About Jesus”(Matthias Media).
This week’s references were: 1 Peter 3:15 and Colossians 4:2-6. Awesome verses about evangelism. The thrust here is to pray for God to work in opening doors, and then to be able to clearly give a gospel message in an appropriate way, as well as equipping yourself to answer questions and objections. Our heart attitude is also touched on, we need to be gracious and loving, bringing “salt” to the conversation. I thought it was great that we were reminded that a good gospel presentation is all about Jesus and the listener, and where they stand with our holy God, and not about the presenter.
This study gave us opportunity to consider ways to present the gospel, e.g. tracts, personal testimonies, and ways to turn conversations, although we only touched briefly on this aspect.
I loved this study series. I highly recommend it to you if you’re looking for a new perspective on personal evangelism that is scripturally sound.
