“Who is Jesus to you”?
- Do you have any kind of spiritual belief?
- To you, who is Jesus?
- Do you think there is a heaven or a hell?
- If you died tonight, where would you go? If heaven, why?
- By the way, if what you were believing is not true, would you want to know?
Simply open your Bible and let God’s Word speak for itself. For this to work, you will need a Bible and a few salvation passages to share. Some passages that serve this purpose are listed below:
- “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” Romans 3:23
- “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23
- “Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3
- “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6
- “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” Romans 10:9-10
- “and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.” 2 Corinthians 5:15
- “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.” Revelation 3:20
Invite your friend to read a verse aloud and then have him explain the verse to you. Take him through all the verses listed above. If your friend interprets a passage incorrectly, don’t argue or offer your interpretation, but politely ask him to read it again, and then explain it a second time. Misinterpretation should not be much of a problem if you use the Bible verses listed above.
Even if your friend mentions that he doesn’t believe in or agree with the Bible, it is best not to argue. You can state that you simply want him to understand what the Bible says about eternity. Isn’t it wonderful to know that it’s not our responsibility to convict? Conviction is God’s job. Pray for the Gospel to go forth in power, for God’s drawing and for your friend’s response.
