Roman Road, ABC and your testimony

Wednesday nights at Christ Fellowship are always special. (Can something be "always special"? I think so.) Wednesday nights at 7 we look at what the Bible says about a certain topic. We all think we know what it says but it's fascinating to actually read what God 's Word says about things like homosexuality, marriage, holiness, divorce, animals, Heaven, Hell and even hair. Often taught by different people, this has been an eye-opening study for all of us involved and it has proven to be very popular. Last Wednesday we looked at what the Bible says about witnessing. And I'll tell you that, in a nutshell, it is for it. In fact, it's a command of God. But how many of us do it? How many of us even speak the name of Jesus outside the walls of the church building? We all struggle with it at times so we are going to work on that some more on Wednesdays. Don't worry. We won't go door to door making you speak to strangers. We're are just going to polish up what we know and some ways to do it. You don't have to say anything if you don't want to. We learned last Wednesday about the Roman Road to salvation. If you can quote or even just refer to Romans 3:23, 6:23 and 10:13, that's enough. You can remember ABC. Admit, Believe, Confess. But something I stressed the other night was to have your personal testimony handy. Be ready to tell someone your salvation experience and be able to do it in 90 seconds or less. Be able to tell someone what your life was like before Christ, how you came to know Him and what your life has been like since. We will talk more about this in the weeks to come because it is a commandment and it is the way that the local church is the hope of the world. So, say the name "Jesus" to someone today and be ready to "always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have." 1 Peter 3:15
