When you have to wait, by Dr. Charles Stanley

Sharing Our Faith

We live in a world where few people are looking for God. But anyone who doesn’t have a relationship with the Savior will be under God’s judgment for all eternity (Matt. 7:21-23). As Christ’s ambassadors, we should be ready share the gospel (2 Corinthians 5:20). Here are five key words to help us communicate God’s good news:

Need—People must first recognize that something is wrong between them and God (Rom. 3:10), and it’s not something they can fix on their own.

Provision—God sent His Son Jesus to pay the debt we owe for our sins.

Cost—For you and me, salvation is free; it’s a gift. But it was costly to God, who sacrificed His Son (Rom. 6:23).

Faith—There is only one way to salvation, and that is by trusting in Jesus (John 14:6).

Assurance—When we believe, the Holy Spirit comes to dwell within us. Through Him, we know that we are God’s children and will spend eternity with Him.

Aren’t you grateful that someone shared these truths with you and introduced you to Jesus? Let’s do the same for our friends and loved ones who haven’t yet discovered the joy of salvation.
