HOW TO LEAD A PERSON TO CHRIST
As a believer, one of our responsibilities is to share the gospel. This is an intimidating task for many. Why? The enemy does not want people to be saved and causes us to shirk from this command:
"Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature." Mark 16:15 KJV
It is everyone's responsibility to share the gospel; not just the pastor's or evangelist's. We come in contact with many they do not.
Where is it he wants us to go? He wants us to go to those who we may come in contact with every day. Maybe it's a co-worker or a neighbor, friend or family member. As we pray for guidance in this area the Spirit of God will lead us to those who are ready to hear the gospel message.
"In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths." Proverbs 3:6 KJV
Here are some important verses to share with them:
"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God" Romans 3:23 KJV
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
Romans 6:23 KJV
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
Romans 5:8 KJV
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth, the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth and and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." Romans 10:9-10 KJV
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Romans 10:13 KJV
"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." Revelation 3:20 KJV
Ask them these questions:
1.) Are you willing to admit that you have done things that are bad (Sinned)?
2.) Do you believe that Jesus really is the Son of God?
3.) Do you believe that when Jesus died on the cross at Calvary he took the punishment for your sins?
4.) Do you believe that Jesus rose from the dead?
Then pray with them a prayer like this:
"Dear God, I'm sorry for my sins, please forgive me. I do believe Jesus is the son of God, that he died for me, and that he rose again. Please come into my heart and save me. Thank you."
