Ten Practical Suggestions
- Use gospel bites. (See John Dickson’s The Best Kept Secret of Christian Mission)
- Do One-to-One Bible reading with an unbeliever. (See David Helm’s One to One)
- Practice hospitality. (Have people in your home; or a place they’d be comfortable)
- Share the gospel at your church gatherings.
- Ask lots of questions:
- How as your weekend?
- Are you a Christian?
- What do you think of Jesus?
- What do you believe?
- Did you used to believe in God? What lead you to change your beliefs?
- Why do you believe what you believe?
- What is the ultimate authority for your beliefs? And why?
- What? Why? How? When? Who?
- Don’t speak too long at any one time.
- Share the overall story of the Bible (Gen-Rev); this helps people make sense of Jesus.
- Be honest.
- Be yourself.
- Share Scripture. (use a little Bible, your phone, or from Scripture memorization)
