Most of you who know me; know that I just started witnessing intently just over a week ago. This is something that I have always wanted to do; but was too cowardly. It only took me 43 years as a Christian. Only 2 out of 100 regularly do according to statistics so I had a lot of company.
God called us to witness so how do we obey this and please him in it. The Great Commission isn’t extra credit or do it if you feel like it; it’s required and commanded. It was Jesus last instructions to his disciples. I figure if he died for me the least, I can do is tell others what he did for me. There are people around the world dying and being tortured for standing up for Jesus and I can’t risk the worse. In America, that someone might roll their eyes or swear at me.
I believe there are 3 ways to witness. I am using the “Way of the Master” by Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron. I believe it to be the most Biblically sound. First, and anyone can do this. I use the 10 Commandment Coins from www. Living Waters.com. They are about 16 cents each. I also will give out a Gospel of John Tract to some. They are from TGS International. They are about 25 cents each. Then, in my case I will give out a Website/FB Live Business Card if they want more information. Just google them.
First, anyone can do this. I do. Wherever you go; leave a coin. It has the 10 commandments on one side and tells you how to Repent and be Saved on the other. It also has a short link for more info. (needgod.com). You can put them in virtually any place that people will look later. I know of at least 2 people that got Saved (found the Lord) that way. If you gave out a 1000 of them; probably there is a good chance that someone may have got saved. This is so easy and cost effective. If you do nothing else; please consider at least doing this!
The second way is to engage a person (friend or stranger) in a Conversation and then give them a 10 Commandments Coin. Just say “Could I give one of these to you as a gift and whatever else you want to say.” A quick in and out.
The third and most effective way. Take them all the way (if they let you). Take them through some of the commandments in a gentle and loving spirit and try to lead them to Christ (if they are ready). This will take courage!
Pray for Boldness and Pray for those who you will talk to!
