The Gospel is the good news of Jesus Christ. Gospel; conversations are conversations that are centered on the Gospel, where you have a chance to evangelize.
Challenge: In 2018, have 12 Gospel conversations. That’s one per month. For some, this might be easy. For others, this might be extremely difficult.
Acts 1:8 - This is one of the last things Jesus said before He ascended. He tells us that He has given us power and authority. This should give us the boldness we need to spread the Gospel; every chance we get.
Acts 8:1 - This verse tells us that all believers are challenged to tell people of the Gospel, not just pastors or missionaries.
Today we look at a simple way to turn any conversation into a Gospel conversation.
Below is a diagram we can use to show people why the Gospel is important. This method is called the 3 Circles.
Note: when drawing this out for someone, you may want to leave out anything in parentheses. The references are there to help you along.
Start by drawing the first circle and write “God’s design” in it. Explain that God created the world perfect and that something happened to cause it to be imperfect.
Draw an arrow to the right and label it “sin.” Explain that sin is the reason the world fell from perfection and how it happened.
Draw the circle on the right and label it “Brokenness.” The sin in the world produced a broken world with broken people.
Draw the arrows going to the right. These are our attempts to fix ourselves. They go nowhere.
Draw the third circle and label it “Gospel.” Tell them what the Gospel is.
Draw the arrow from brokenness to Gospel and explain how we must repent and believe to accept Christ.
Now draw the arrow from Gospel to God’s design. This is where you explain that the Gospel leads to the recovery and pursuit of God’s original design.
At this point, you can lead them in a prayer of salvation if they are ready.
