Sharing The Gospel

Posted: June 14, 2019 in Billy Pietsch, Evagelism, Gospel, Salvation

If you’re a true Christian, God wants to use you for His glory (1 Corinthians 10:31), so that other unsaved people can learn about God and His wonderful plan of salvation that is offered to all of mankind. He wants us to be His witnesses (Acts 1:8). Are you willing to be one of them? Would you like to learn how to do this more effectively? You can begin by making sure of your own salvation (1 John 5:13; Romans 8:16). You can use your personal testimony to share the Gospel with others. You might want to share good tracts with others. They need to include the Gospel (1 Corinthians 15:3, 4) and the way of salvation clearly (Acts 16:31; John 3:16). They must not add “good works” as another requirement for salvation. (See Dr. Ron Shea’s “The Gospel” booklet at www.cleargospel.org or on my website “The Bad News & The Good News.”)

I’ve found that people express their sympathy for me when I share with them the story of our late son, Bill’s death. But rather than let his death be just a sad story, I’ve tried to use it to impress on others the need for them to make every day count and to trust in Christ alone as their personal Savior.

The following is a short article I wrote which I printed up on a half sheet of paper and folded it up into three sections. As the Lord opens up doors for me, I pass them out to others to get their attention so I can share the Gospel in a just few words. I invite you to read Dr. Manfred Kober’s article, “Do We Really Know Gospel” where he presents the Gospel in less than 25 words.

Bad News & Good News

We had a son who lived in Japan for 15 years. He and his sister taught English there. Both of them were there when the great earthquake and tsunami took place in 2011.

I used to tell our son, “Live everyday as though it might be your last day on earth.” Sadly, he died on Easter Sunday, after passing out about 1,000 flyers inviting people to come to church.

No one knew about his death for 6 days until he didn’t show up for class one day. One of his student’s mother called our daughter, who had moved back to the States, and asked her if she knew where her brother was. She didn’t know, but she asked the Japanese lady to go with the police to his apartment.

When they got there they found him dead in his bathtub with the water still running. An autopsy was performed and they determined that he died of a heart attack. He was 38 years old.

Why do I tell you this? Because none of us knows the day when we will die. Our lives are like a vapor that appears for a little while and then it’s gone (James 4:14; Proverbs 27:1).

The “Bad News” is that we’ve all sinned (Romans 3:23; 6:23). But the “Good News” is that “Christ died for our sins…and rose again bodily on the third day” (1 Corinthians 15:3, 4).

If we believe on and trust in Christ alone, and not in our good works (Acts 16:31; Ephesians 2:8, 9), we will be saved from having to spend eternity with the devil and his angels in the lake of fire (Acts 16:31; Matthew 25:41, 46; Revelation 21:8). It’s urgent that we believe on Him now before it’s too late!

If you’ve just placed your faith in Christ alone as a result of reading this, and would like additional help so you can grow spiritually, please visit our website: www.kelseypeach.com. We’re here to help those who are teachable and willing to change.

Live today as though it might be your last day on earth.”
