    Gospel Outline Week — Grace

    Gospel Outline Week — Grace

    Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.
    How would you like to learn an easy to remember, hard to forget Gospel presentation?  Using the five fingers of your hand, we’re going to put one word to each finger.  The five words are GRACE, MAN, GOD, CHRIST and FAITH.  We’ll look at one word for each day this week.  Word number one is GRACE – picture your thumb pointing toward Heaven.  Grace, heaven, eternal life, is a gift.  Romans 6:23 says, “the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”  And, like any gift, it is not earned or deserved.  The Bible tells us that we’re saved through faith, not works.  What a relief! Every other religion teaches that people must earn their way to Heaven, but not Christianity.  Christianity alone proclaims that God’s favor and entrance into heaven are absolutely free to us because of Jesus' sacrifice. So, word number one of the Gospel is GRACE. And we need it desperately. To see the hand presentation video, go to www.sharelife.today. That's www.sharelife.today.

    Respond with Jesus

    Respond with Jesus

    Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.
    With a few simple tools, we can speak the Gospel with confidence and develop a passion for those who do not yet know Him. One of today's tips for sharing our faith with confidence is to address questions. Even though difficult questions may come up in a spiritual conversation, we don’t need to fear them. Answer them as quickly as possible, then return the focus to the Gospel. Now, if you don’t know an answer, be honest; let them know you will find out. Remember to always return with an answer if you promise to do so. Another tip is to be ready to take the next step with others. Because when you share your faith, people will respond. Keep it simple. The Gospel is not complicated! Explain that what they must do is place their trust in Jesus alone. When you move in faith, God will provide both divine opportunities and the confidence that you need to tell others the Good News. So take a step of faith this week and share with someone!

    Let’s Go

    Let’s Go

    Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.
    Why do we share the Gospel? Well, the simplest answer is because Jesus told us to. After He showed Himself to the disciples and many others after His resurrection, He left them with the Great Commission. "Therefore go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” Christ gave every follower of His a purpose before ascending to heaven—He called us to go and tell people the Good News of the Gospel. And through people coming to know Him, Christians are formed and begin to grow in their faith. What a privilege and calling we have! And the best news is we don't have to do it alone. Jesus Himself will be with us always. So the question is...are we going and sharing? If not, find resources to help you share the Gospel at www.sharelife.today. That’s www.sharelife.today.

    Working With The Holy Spirit

    Working With The Holy Spirit

    Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.
    Did you know that the Holy Spirit is working? Everywhere, all the time, drawing people all over the world to Jesus. And the same Holy Spirit lives inside each one of us. So, when it comes to sharing our faith we don't have to be afraid. Witnessing under the direction of the Holy Spirit is just seeing where God is already working and then joining Him in it. When it comes to witnessing our part is simply taking a step of obedience and sharing our faith. Then the Holy Spirit’s part is drawing men and women to Jesus. Wow, how easy and exciting is that? In John five nineteen Jesus said "Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son of Man can do nothing of His own accord, but only what he sees the Father doing", so our job as a witness is to simply follow Jesus' example, to only do what the Father is already doing. So watch, and see where God is already at work, and then join him there. To learn more about sharing the Gospel, visit www.sharelife.today.

    Sharing With Confidence

    Sharing With Confidence

    Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.
    Did you know that God uses ordinary people like you and me to point others to Christ? Opportunities to share our faith are literally all around us. With a few simple tools, we can speak the Gospel with confidence and develop passion for those who do not yet know Him. One of the keys to sharing your faith with confidence is simply to being yourself. Keep the conversation friendly. Ask questions about their spiritual life and what gives them the most meaning. Take time to listen and understand where they are struggling. And share your story about how you came to know Jesus and what difference it’s made it your life. People love stories, and your story is interesting because it is unique. This will also help them understand the transforming power of the Gospel in your life and how a relationship with Jesus can impact them too. All these ways help us share our faith boldly and lovingly with others. To learn more about sharing the Gospel with confidence, visit our website at www.sharelife.today.

    Our Biggest Fear

    Our Biggest Fear

    Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.
    What's your biggest fear? For some, it's spiders, or the dark, or falling from a high place. But for Christians, there is a great fear in sharing our faith. For some, they just don’t know where to start. Others are afraid of facing difficult questions or simply rejection. You know, we’ve all been there; and unfortunately, many believers never move beyond that fear. The problem is, Satan knows this and often uses fear to keep us from sharing the Gospel. But let me encourage you to take that step in faith. Ask God to give you courage. Pray that He will open a door for you to share His love with another person. God loves to prepare people’s hearts to hear the Good News, and He is waiting for people willing to step out in faith and speak for Him. God uses ordinary people just like you and me to point others to Christ. So let's put our fears aside, and let’s learn how to share! For resources on how you can do that, visit our website at www.sharelife.today.
