This week CREW Student Ministries is at Mission Fuge Camp at Liberty University. The students are going out everyday and being the hands and feet of Jesus. God is doing and going to do amazing things. The students are using their skills to open doorways to share the Gospel. Fuge provided us with a great way to transition to the Gospel message and I wanted to share it here to help my readers be more intentional in sharing their faith.
The Gospel shows us the Lord's desire for us to be in a relationship with Him. We must be willing to build relationships with other people. FIRM is a great place to start. FIRM is an acronym which you should think through when talking to someone. It will help you to get to know, form a relationship and allow you to simply and effectively transition to the Gospel.
Tell me about your family. Do you have any brothers or sisters? Are you the oldest or youngest?
What hobbies do you enjoy? Do you play sports? What is your favorite subject in school?
Do you celebrate Christmas/Easter? What are a few of your holiday traditions? Do you attend church? What do you believe it takes to get to Heaven?
Thank you for sharing about yourself. May I take a few minutes and share my story?
Once we have started a conversation and established a connection with people, we can share what God has done and is doing in our own lives. This shows what a relationship with God looks like.
Share about your life before Christ
Share about how you met Christ and how He changed your life
Share how Christ impacts your life on a daily basis
Finally, do not forget to ask the person if they would like to accept Jesus Christ. Don't be afraid to draw the net and ask someone to make a decision to follow Christ. If we don't draw the net we might let a fish get away.
Our students are sharing their faith this week.
Do you have the guts to share your faith?
