What Are The ABCs of Soul Winning?
Here is an easy gospel presentation to use—remember your ABCs? The ABCs of Soul Winning is one way of introducing people to Jesus as Lord and eternal life. You can find whatever witnessing style you feel comfortable with, and it can become your standard approach. As you develop and grow in the Lord, you will be open to further leading of the Spirit and possibly a greater arsenal of knowledge or methods, but these ABCs for presenting the Gospel and getting eternal life to someone are powerful. Here are the ABCs of salvation:
A. Acknowledge that they are a sinner. Believe in Jesus Christ.
Confess Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
B. “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved…” (Acts 16:31).
“As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name” (John 1:12).
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
C. Confess Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
“Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of
God, God abides in him and he in God”
(1 John 4:15).
“…If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, you shall be saved” (Ro- mans 10:9).
Again, your witnessing goal? You are only looking to see if someone believes. If they believe, lead them in a confession of faith—something like,
“God, save me. I believe in Jesus Christ—that He is the Son of God and that He died for my sins. I believe He rose from the dead. Forgive me. Clean me and make me new in Christ. Jesus, give me eternal life, be my Lord, and come live in my heart. I commit my life to You for- ever. Thank you, Lord. Now I’m saved.”
