Sharing Your Faith

I taught at our Millvale Neighborhood Group tonight. It was a great time and had the chance to talk about ‘What components make up the gospel?’ Here were some of my thoughts:

  • Three components of the gospel:
    1. God is love and loves His Creation.
    2. We’ve messed up and all made mistakes.
    3. God’s love is so great that, through Christ’s sacrifice, He’s chosen to redeem our mistakes rather then condemn them.
  • These components may not be shared all in one conversation, but can be discussed with a person over weeks, months or even years.
  • In sharing our faith we are really sharing how our story has intersected with God’s story in a beautiful collision.
  • God’s love for this world is so great that He chooses not to rid the world of all evil, but rather to constantly be working to redeem it.
  • We do not aim at leading a person through a simple ‘prayer of salvation’ – our goal is to lead them through a growing relationship with Christ.
