Share Your Faith Ministries (Dr. Ken Silva)
"While statistics today reveal that 95% of Christians never personally lead anyone to Christ, it appears this was not the case in the early centuries of the church. Jesus called His disciples to follow Him and then promised if they did so, that he would make them to be fishers of men, (Matthew 4:19). It seems to us that anyone and everyone who really follows Christ in the way He has called us, will be an active fisher of men. The Book of Acts reveals that all the early believers were going about "preaching the Word" or sharing their faith. They were not just leaving the work of evangelism up to the church leadership, (Acts 8:1,4)."
Our special guest speaker, Ken Silva, shared with us this simple and easily remembered evangelism tool. Sharing your faith can be done in this five step process:
The Thumb represents Grace because, like a ride given to a hitchhiker, eternal life is a free gift of God's grace.
The Index Finger reminds us of Man. We may point out the sin in others, but there are always three fingers pointing back at ourselves. We all have a problem called sin.
The Middle or Great Finger (since it's the longest) represents God because He is the Greatest Being in the Universe.
The Ring Finger represents Christ, because the Bible calls Him the Bridegroom and believers the Bride.
The Little Finger represents Faith because it is the smallest, just as Jesus compared faith to the mustard seed, one of the smallest of all seeds.
We can rationalize our reasons for not telling others about Christ. However, do any of those reasons really hold water when it comes down to people spending an eternity in hell. How selfish of us to let fear keep us from sharing the gift that has been given to us. Let's start becoming "REAL MEN" and allow God to use us as His voice.
