Sharing The Gospel – In 3 Minutes Or Less

More by paul.

simple presentation of the gospel

I recently asked a room full of Christian leaders to share the Gospel as they would to a 10 year old child 3 minutes before they fell asleep.

Then I asked them to share the Gospel as they would to a complete stranger on the subway who was getting off at the next stop.

The results were a little disappointing to everyone involved.

Most of us prefer to warm up to such things. Most of us would rather share the Gospel gradually, in snips and bits, over an extended period, within a safe and stable relational context.

In general, I think that is a reasonable way to go, but there are also times when we need to be able to at least introduce the Gospel in a limited amount of time.

The two scenarios mentioned above are both real and representative of several situations I’ve encountered in the past.

I’ve had children ask me Gospel questions after bedtime prayers and I have watched the alertness drain out of them like sands through an hourglass as I attempted to say true things about God, about us and about how God has saved us through the person and work of Jesus Christ. I was sitting on the train once reading my Bible when a Hindu fellow in the seat next to me asked me what Christians believed about God. I had two, maybe three stops before I would say goodbye forever to this man so I wanted to say as much as I could in the time that I had – but I quickly discovered that I was not adequately prepared.

Since those two failures (along with several others!) I’ve found great benefit in memorizing a very short statement that captures the essence of the Christian Gospel:

The Gospel is the Good News of what God has done in Christ to secure our salvation.

That statement has 17 words in it and takes about 6 seconds to say. If I’m asked by a person on the subway or by a patron in line behind me at Tim Hortons what a Christian believes or what Christianity is all about I will start with that line and then build up from there based on the amount of time that I have.

To the person getting off the subway at the next stop (3 minutes) I would add some version of the following:

The word Gospel means “good news”. It’s pretty important to understand that. The Bible is not a book that tells us what we have to do to earn salvation, it is a book that tells us what God did to earn our salvation. What he did was send Jesus. Jesus did for us what we could never do for ourselves and he paid for what we had done in his body on the cross. God created human beings and intended for them to be ruling creatures. We were supposed to be under God but over everything else. We were supposed to rule over creation under the guidance and authority of God’s Word and to function as conduits for all the blessings of heaven. That’s how it was supposed to be, but unfortunately, the Bible tells the story of how our first parents, Adam and Eve, fell into sin by choosing to rebel against God’s Word in order to become autonomous ruling creatures. Basically, they wanted to be gods unto themselves, deciding good and evil. From that point on, humanity has been on a downward spiral moving further and further away from God and our original design and glory. The heart of the Gospel is the Good News that Jesus has come as God in the flesh and has obeyed God perfectly and has therefore won the right to all the blessings God originally intended to give to men and women. Furthermore, through his sacrificial death on the cross, he has paid the debt that we owed to God for disobeying his commands. There is therefore no need anymore for us to hide from God. In Jesus, we can come home and we can be restored. The climax of the Gospel is the great news that he rose from the dead and ascended into heaven where he now intercedes on our behalf. He gives the Holy Spirit to all his people and he slowly but surely, changes our hearts, reforms our desires and teaches us how to be the children of God we were always intended to be. For now, Jesus remains in heaven, changing the world one person at a time, but one day he will return and judge the world in righteousness. He will remove from this world all sin and all causes of sin and he will restore the cosmos to a state of peace, prosperity and flourishing and all those who have received him as their Lord and Savior will participate in his rule and enjoy his goodness forever.

It takes 2.5 minutes to say that at normal talking speed, which leaves 30 seconds to answer a question or to suggest a website or a book that could provide further information.

To be clear, I don’t imagine that too many people will be saved by a 180 second presentation of the Gospel – but it could lead to an exchange of email addresses; it could lead to a friend request on Facebook; it could lead to a website or a book or a Small Group. Your 180 seconds could be the seed that is used by God to begin a Gospel journey.

So memorize your 20 word summary.

Practice your 2 minute drill.

Find an article on-line that you could recommend for further study.

And then pray and ask the Lord to provide you with opportunities.

For the harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few.

How to Share the Gospel: Simple Presentation Tools

I can count at least ten different gospel presentation tools that I’ve used throughout my lifetime. I could still use any one of them to share the gospel with a spiritually lost person today. What gospel presentation tool do you use?

Ways to Present the Gospel

As a child, my mom led a Good News Club in our home for neighborhood children and taught us the Wordless Book . This was my first exposure to the gospel.

The Wordless Book by Child Evangelism Fellowship uses these five colors to explain the message of the gospel.

Wordless book

GOLD ~ God wants us to be in heaven with Him. BLACK ~ Our sin separates us from God. RED ~ Christ died on the cross as the only payment for our sin. WHITE ~ Accept God’s forgiveness and the free gift of eternal life. GREEN ~ Grow closer to God every day.

Later, as a jr. high student, our youth ministry taught us the Romans Road and I memorized verses from the book of Romans to present the gospel message.

Romans 3:23 “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God…” Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in[a] Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:1 “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” Romans 10:9 “If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:10 “For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.” Romans 10:13 “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

In high school, I went through a 17 week course on Evangelism Explosion , the training developed by D. James Kennedy. In those 17 weeks, we learned a simple gospel message outline, memorized verses, crafted illustrations, and practiced sharing our faith by visiting people who had visited the church. Maybe you’re most familiar with Evangelism Explosion’s 2 Diagnostic Questions:

ONE: Do you know for sure that you are going to be with God in heaven? TWO: If God were to ask you, “Why should I let you into My heaven?” What would you say?

While in college, I toured with Athlete’s In Action’s track team through Central and Eastern Europe, sharing the gospel with other athletes. As a ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ (now CRU) we had to memorize The Four Spiritual Laws,  a popular gospel tract.

Law One: God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life. Law Two: Man is sinful and separated from God. As a result, we cannot know God’s wonderful plan for our lives. Law Three: Jesus Christ is God’s only provision for our sin. Through Jesus Christ, we can have our sins forgiven and be restored to a right relationship with God. Law Four: We must place our faith in Jesus Christ as Savior in order to receive the gift of salvation and know God’s wonderful plan for our lives.

After graduating college, I began to use Billy Graham’s outline found in the gospel tract  Steps to Peace with God:

Step ONE: God loves you and wants you to experience peace and life – abundant and eternal. Step TWO: We choose to disobey God and go our own willful way. This results in separation from God. Step THREE: Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose from the grave. He paid the penalty for our sin and bridged the gap between God and people. Step FOUR: We must trust Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and receive Him by personal invitation.

One Verse Evangelism

Then, in 2003, I developed my own evangelism training based on the acronym YMCA . This fun training incorporated John 3:16 as the one verse to build the gospel message around:

YOU are loved by God. “ For God so loved the world… ” MAN is sinful and separated from God. “ …shall not perish… ” CHRIST died on the cross as the only payment for our sin. “ …that He gave His one and only Son…” ACCEPT God’s gift of eternal life by faith. “ …whoever believes in Him shall… have eternal life.”

Our children began to be taught a simple gospel message presentation through LifeWay’s VBS curriculum, the ABC’s of Salvation .

ADMIT to God that you are a sinner. BELIEVE in Jesus Christ as God’s Son. CONFESS your faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

In 2013, Sonlife partnered together with Dare 2 Share to train students to share their faith using Dare 2 Share’s G.O.S.P.E.L. presentation, Life in Six Words . The tool is simple, but strengthened by incredible videos and apps for students to use in sharing their faith.

GOD created us to be with Him. OUR sins separate us from God. SINS cannot be removed by good deeds. PAYING the price for sin, Jesus died and rose again. EVERYONE who trusts in Him alone has eternal life. LIFE with Jesus starts now and lasts forever.

Through the years, I’ve also been introduced to many other great evangelism tools: Three Story Evangelism by Youth For Christ, Three Circles Evangelism by NAMB, EvangeCube, and the Gospel Bead Bracelet being just a few.

Tips for Sharing the Gospel

Here are a few things I think are critically important when it comes to sharing the gospel.

1. Keep it simple.  What each of these evangelism tools help to do is keep the message of the gospel simple. If the message is simple, it will be clear. If the message is simple, it will be understandable. If the message is simple, it will be reproducible. I believe this is why Paul wrote to the church in Colossae, “Pray that I may proclaim it (the gospel) clearly, as I should.” You want the gospel message to be simple enough that when you share it with someone, if they put their faith in Christ for salvation, they can turn around and share that same message with someone else. You’ll notice that in pretty much every one of the above gospel presentation tools, you will find these four basic elements. God’s Love, Man’s Sin, Christ’s Death, Our Response. If the presentation you use is missing any one of these elements, or adds much more than these, you might want to reevaluate for both simplicity and clarity.

2. Bring it up.  Often we don’t share the gospel with someone because we think they are not ready to hear it. If we use a Stop Light as an analogy for someone’s readiness to hear the Gospel—with Red being closed to the gospel, Yellow being interested in spiritual things, and Green being ready to put their faith in Christ—most of us think our friends or neighbors are at the Red light.

When to share the gospel: stoplight analogy

A better perspective would be for us to assume our friend is at the Green light, initiate a spiritual conversation, see how they respond, and then evaluate their spiritual readiness. In other words, don’t write them off before we’ve even given them a chance. Their readiness might just surprise us.

3. Land the Plane.  One of the hardest things for us to do when we’ve shared the gospel with someone is to close the deal, to land the plane. We stammer and struggle and just leave the conversation unfinished. Either we’re afraid to be viewed as being too pushy, or we’re afraid of being rejected. When we share the gospel, it should always come with an invitation for the person to respond. Two simple questions help in this regard. 1. So, what do you think? Does this make sense? 2. Would you like to put your trust in Christ alone for forgiveness and eternal life?

4. Pray, Pray, Pray!

  • Pray for your lost friends. Jesus prayed, seeing that “the harvest is great, but the workers are few.” Matthew 9:37
  • Pray for opportunities to share the Gospel message. “And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message…” Colossians 4:3
  • Pray for boldness and clarity as you share the gospel. “Pray also for me, that whenever I may speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel.” Ephesians 6:19

For Further Consideration

1. Who are the spiritually lost friends you are currently praying for and investing in relationally? Which light do you think they are at—Red, Yellow or Green? Consider viewing them as a Green light, sharing the gospel, and evaluating their true spiritual readiness.

2. What gospel presentation tool are you personally using? Maybe you feel like you’ve known Christ long enough, or been in ministry long enough, that you don’t need a tool. You can just go freestyle. If so, ask yourself: Is the way I share the gospel message reproducible? Can I train others to share the same way I do?

3. Explore. See what great evangelism tools are out there. New ones are being developed every year. I’ve outlined several great tools above. Sonlife has several more in the Evangelism Toolbox in our 4 Chair Discipling seminar guide. Check out a few new tools, especially those that are using technology, whether they be in the form of a website that can be shared through social media or apps ( Life in 6 Words by Dare 2 Share, The Big Story by InterVarsity, GodTools by Cru) that can be installed on smart phones or tablets. One great thing about tools like these is, because they are digital, they are easily shareable and therefore reproducible.

6 Different Gospel Presentations for Personal Evangelism

Pick any blog on personal evangelism , and one will encounter a conversation over different gospel presentations.

  • What points must one share?
  • What happens if I forget a point?
  • Can I mess it up?

On one hand, it’s great to be concerned about messing up .

We always want to be prepared to explain our faith.

We get better at it as we mature in Christ.

On the other hand, God is more sovereign than our mistakes.

He will not deny His grace to another because our explanation was as clear as mud.

God’s sovereignty is not an excuse to avoid evangelism, nor to be sloppy in our presentation.

6 Different Gospel Presentations

What must a clear Gospel explanation have?

A good explanation of the gospel must convey information about

  • The nature of sin and our separation from God.
  • The love of God and his desire to be reconciled to the lost.
  • Christ as God’s plan of redemption:
  • That God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself,
  • Christ died for our sins and rose again.
  • The promise of forgiveness of sins
  • Belief in Jesus is the response to God’s irresistible grace.

Condensed Gospel Presentations

Different Gospel Outlines

One of the most popular forms (see our series on evangelism scripts ) to explain the gospel is the Law and Gospel script.

I like the theology of the Law and Gospel presentation.

But don’t agree with how some of its users say it is the only valid form of the gospel message.  

The implication is that if one didn’t get the right explanation of the gospel, you are a false convert.  Or if you miss an element in the explanation, the conversion has misfired.

My conversion was not through a law and gospel presentation. I came to faith and then came to understand the gospel later. Does the law have to be the starting point for the gospel ?

Other gospel presentation scripts include

  • Four Spiritual Laws ,
  • Romans Road ,
  • Good Person Test ,
  • Evangecube (video ),
  • The Bridge Illustration ,
  • Do versus Done

There are plenty of scripts out there one could use.

Just get familiar with one and start.

Each script has its critics, and its endorsers.

It’s not my point here to pick one over the other.

My point however, is to pick a script and get very familiar with it so that you can explain the gospel clearly when given the opportunity.

I use the  Bridge Illustration as I think it covers a lot of ground.

The imagery is clear.

Practice it over and over on a napkin until you can explain it clearly at any given moment. Learn how to share it lovingly and in the form of a dialogue (the script is not a tool to cream people).

Let me ask you this?

What script do you like you to use?

Can you share the gospel message clearly when needed?

When you learnt to ride a bike did you have trainer wheels Learning a gospel tool like the Evangelism Explosion one, is to help the Christian to get started and used to sharing the gospel with gentleness and respect. Often the gospel sharing tools out there are produced with the Non- Christian in mind. I would like to encourage any Christian to be equipped for the most important mission of your life.

Thanks Bryan. This post already points to 6 different gospel presentations that I recommend.

June 20, 2019 at 12:12 am

Hi My local church has agreed to put a gospel presentation on their website which I hope will be an encouragement for people not engaged in evangelism to download and use on their mobiles. I have seen a few. I am not a fan of those over emphasizing the Law as although it is useful for the self-righteous to see themselves remorse is not believing, and we are saved by believing leading to repentance ie changing the way we think. People have to believe in something before they can alter their perception. Please could you recommend something we could use?

I’m engaged in rural evangelism. I’ve observed that the EvangeCube is one of the most effective tools for soul winning. Please how can I get copies to buy.

I forgot about EE when I originally wrote the series and this article. Small oversight on my part.

I think it can be a good one if the person I’m talking to is actually asking the question this script addresses.

The opening Question: do you know for sure that you are going to heaven? may be asking a question that the person I’m witnessing to may not even be asking. It may not be on the radar.

If it is a concern on their mind, then I think the EE approach can be a good tool to answer that question.

The opening question can also initiate a possible concern, as in “I’ve never thought about that. . . “

One-Verse Evangelism: How to Share Christ’s Love Conversationally & Visually

One-Verse Evangelism ® is a simple, interactive way to share Christ’s love conversationally and visually. Using just one verse, it’s easy to learn, and you can write it anywhere. One-Verse Evangelism shares the powerful message of the gospel in a 10 to 15 minute conversation.

Many times we feel that to be effective in evangelism we have to create complex illustrations and memorize a seminary-worthy number of verses. But the gospel is most powerful when shared with love, clarity, and (sometimes most importantly) simplicity.

One-Verse Evangelism is a simple, interactive way to share Christ’s love conversationally and visually. It is based on asking questions and sharing truth simply. It’s easy to learn because it uses just one verse. One-Verse Evangelism can be shared in just 10 or 15 minutes, but can have impact for a lifetime.

Here’s a brief look at how it works. Let’s say God is leading you to share the gospel with your neighbor, Jeff. Write out Romans 6:23 on a piece of paper or a napkin: “ For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord ” (NIV). All you need is contained in this single passage. Ask Jeff if he would like to see a simple diagram based on this verse that will explain God’s relationship with mankind (us).

Circle the word “wages” and ask, “How would you feel if your boss refused to pay you the wages that were due to you?” The answer, of course, is that he would want justice—in this case, the wages he had worked for. Deep down, we all know that it is only right that we get what we deserve. Similarly, we earn “wages” from God for how we have lived our lives.

Draw a circle around “sin,” asking your neighbor Jeff what he thinks when he hears this word. You might explain that sin is more an attitude than an action. It can be either actively fighting God or as simple as excluding Him from our lives. You can ask, “Has God ever seemed far away?” If he says “Yes,” you can explain that that’s one of the things sin does—it makes God seem far away. Now draw two opposing cliffs with a gap in between.

Circle this word and ask what thoughts come to mind. Explain that death in the Bible always means some kind of separation—in its most basic sense, separation from life. Because God is the author of life, a spiritual death simply means separation from Him.

While circling this word, mention that it is important because it means that a sharp contrast in ideas is coming. What we have just looked at is the bad news; what comes next is the good news.

Draw a circle around this word. Ask, “If wages are what a person earns, then what is a gift?” Remind Jeff that though every gift is free for the person receiving it, someone still has to purchase it.

Circle this and explain that the gift you are talking about is free. It is from God Himself. It’s so special that no one else can give it. Ask, “How do you feel when someone gives you a special gift?”

Eternal Life

Circle these two words next, and then ask, “How would you define these words?” Contrast one side of the cliff, death, with the other side, eternal life. Ask, “What is the opposite of separation from God?”

Christ Jesus

Write these words so they create a bridge between the two cliffs. Help your friend to consider that just as every gift has a unique giver, only Jesus Christ can give the gift of eternal life.

Write this word over the bridge you just drew. Explain that a true friend is a friend you can trust, and tell Jeff that Jesus is offering to be a true friend to him. All Jeff has to do is admit that he is responsible for his sin—either of fighting against God or excluding Him from his life. Trusting Jesus means believing that He has power to forgive us for rejecting God and that He will wash us clean from all that we have done wrong in life. At this point, you can ask him if he wants to start a relationship with God that will last forever. If he says “Yes,” invite him to pray a short prayer in his own words, asking Jesus to forgive him and make him new.

Close by reminding him that this simple illustration shows what God is like: Someone who really cares about people—especially him. Invite him to read all about it in the Bible–the Gospel of John is a great place to start.

Ways to Present the Gospel

Adrian Rogers once said that there are two critical points in sharing your faith with others: getting started and asking for a decision . Many people get started but fall short of asking for a decision. Click here to look at some different conversation starters for a spiritual conversation with someone. Continue reading to learn about how you can present the Gospel in a way that brings someone to the point of making a decision. 

Use Your Personal Testimony

Witnessing is simply about sharing your personal encounter with Jesus with other people. The great thing about what God has done in your life is that no one can dispute it! Your story is what  you  have "seen and heard." Trust God and just tell others what has happened to you. Click here to read more about how to use your testimony. 

Use the Roman Road

This presentation is called the Roman Road because it uses verses in the Book of Romans to walk someone through the steps of salvation. Step 1 is recognizing that we are all sinners. (See Romans 3:23 .) Step 2 is realizing that our sins have a consequence: death. (See Romans 6:23 .) Step 3 is accepting that Jesus Christ died for those sins so the price is paid in full. (See Romans 5:8 .) Step 4 is confessing Jesus as Lord and believing He rose from the grave. (See Romans 10:9 .)

As you read through Romans, you may find even more verses to use in this Gospel presentation. But you want to make sure that you include the core steps in your conversation.

Use John 3:16

John 3:16 is one verse that tells us everything we need to know about the Gospel. It explains to us that God loved, God gave, we believe, and then we live in Him. Click here to explore the truths about John 3:16 and how these truths can introduce someone to Jesus Christ.

The Three Circles Gospel Presentation: Step-by-Step

Are you looking for an easy way to share the gospel with others? 

Look no further than the Three Circles Gospel Presentation. This simple method or tool has been used by tens of thousands of people and is both engaging and effective. In this article, we’ll walk you through how to use the Three Circles to introduce the gospel to others.

How to Introduce the Three Circles

Introducing the Three Circles is easy. 

Simply ask, “Have you heard of the Three Circles?” If the person says no, say something like, “I’d really like to show it to you. It only takes a minute or two. Would that be OK?” 

You can also try bridging the conversation with something from your own life to set the tone before asking the introducing question.

This simple method or tool has been used by tens of thousands of people and is both engaging and effective.

1st circle: the brokenness.

To start, draw a circle on the right-hand side of a piece of paper. 

You can make a jagged line through it and say something like, “You may have noticed when you turn on the news, a lot of bad stuff is happening.” Mention briefly a few relevant examples depending on what you think might interest the person. 

These things might include anxiety, stress, family breakdown, pain, economic problems, bad government or any number of things that people would agree are a bad thing. For school children, it might be bullying.

Different things for different people.

Then say something like, “This circle represents the fact that we live in a BROKEN world. In fact, we were born into brokenness. Nothing is really fully the way it ought to be.” 

2nd Circle: God’s Original Design

Next, draw a second circle to the left of the first one.

Say something like, “But it wasn’t always this way. When God first made the world, He made it beautiful and perfect.” In this circle, write things like love, peace, joy, health, and rightness. Maybe draw a love heart. 

Our first ancestors lived this way for a short time. 

“But something happened which moved us to this broken circle.” 

Draw a line and an arrow from the Love Circle to the Broken Circle. Label it “SIN” . Basically, what sin is, is the choice to leave God out, to do things our own way, and not respect God’s Word.

You might like to elaborate on this very briefly, depending on the amount of time you feel is right to use. But don’t go on and on because if a person is interested, there will be opportunities to explain it more later.

“People don’t like living in brokenness, so they try various things to get out of it,” you explain next. 

Draw various arrows moving out from the brokenness circle, and give them different labels. For example, “Money, or success, or achievement, or relationships, or philosophy, or good works, or religious activity.” “The problem is, none of these things actually get people out of brokenness. They might seem to help for a short time, but then people find themselves back in brokenness.”

Ask: “Does this make sense so far?”

3rd Circle: The Good News of Jesus

Finally, draw a third circle below the two circles already drawn. In the circle, draw a cross. You will also be drawing a down arrow before it and an up arrow after it.

“God knew nothing we could do by ourselves would get us out of this brokenness. But God loves us and didn’t want things to stay this way, so He sent his Son Jesus to the earth. He was born of a virgin, lived a perfect life, died on the cross, and rose from the dead three days later. 

When Jesus died on the cross, He took the punishment we deserved for our sin. When He rose from the dead, He defeated sin and made a way for us to experience salvation.”

Next Steps in 3 Questions

What happens next?

That will depend on their response.

You can ask them 3 main questions:

1. What circle do you live in now in your life?

2. What circle do you want to live in?

3. (If they said they want to live in God’s design): what is keeping you from following Jesus?

From there, it’s all about asking the right questions and trusting the Holy Spirit to guide the conversation. Some may not be ready to turn and believe, but that’s okay. We can invite them to pray and be open to talking again in the future. 

For those who do want to go forward, it’s important to seek wisdom and lead them to immediate obediene to the gospel through baptism, regular discipleship, and participation in a church. 

Let’s trust in God’s guidance and keep sharing His love with others.

With just a piece of paper and a pen, you can help others understand the fundamental concepts of sin, brokenness, and salvation. By sharing your own personal testimony and using the Three Circles, you can help others find the salvation Jesus alone offers us.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. what is the 3 circles gospel sharing method.

The 3 Circles gospel sharing method is a simple and effective way to communicate the message of the Christian gospel using a visual representation. This method uses three interconnected circles to explain key concepts: God’s Design, Brokenness, and the Gospel. The purpose of the 3 Circles method is to engage in meaningful conversations about faith and lead individuals toward a better understanding of God’s plan for salvation.

2. How does the 3 Circles diagram work?

The 3 Circles diagram consists of three circles, each representing a different aspect of the gospel message:

a. God’s Design: This circle depicts God’s original plan for a perfect world, highlighting concepts like love, peace, and harmony. It emphasizes that humanity was created to have a meaningful relationship with God.

b. Brokenness: The second circle portrays the brokenness that entered the world due to sin. It encompasses struggles, pain, and separation from God. This circle helps people recognize the imperfections in the world and in their own lives.

c. The Gospel: The third circle represents the solution to brokenness—Jesus Christ’s life, death, and resurrection. It signifies the redemption and restoration offered through faith in Christ. This circle explains the path to reconciliation with God and eternal life.

The diagram serves as a visual aid to guide conversations about these concepts, making the gospel message easier to understand and remember.

3. Where can someone start in the 3 Circles diagram?

Individuals can start at any point within the 3 Circles diagram, depending on their current understanding and beliefs. Someone might begin at “God’s Design,” acknowledging the original purpose of a perfect world. Others might identify with the “Brokenness” circle, recognizing the challenges and broken aspects of their lives. Some may even begin at the “Gospel” circle, having heard about Christ’s redemptive work before.

Identifying one’s starting point helps in tailoring the conversation to address their specific concerns, questions, and needs, leading them toward a deeper comprehension of the gospel.

4. Where does someone want to be in the 3 Circles diagram?

The ultimate goal of the 3 Circles method is for individuals to move from their starting point toward the center of the diagram—the cross in the “Gospel” circle. This represents a journey of understanding and accepting God’s plan of salvation through Jesus Christ. The desired outcome is for individuals to embrace faith in Christ, experience forgiveness, and establish a renewed relationship with God, ultimately receiving the gift of eternal life.

5. What might hinder someone from turning and trusting in the gospel?

In the context of the 3 Circles gospel sharing method, hindrances to turning and trusting in the gospel can be likened to the four types of soil mentioned in Mark 4:

a. Hard Soil: Just as hard soil prevents seeds from taking root, individuals with hardened hearts may resist the gospel due to skepticism or a closed mindset. Doubts, intellectual barriers, and preconceived notions can create a barrier to understanding and accepting the message.

b. Rocky Soil: Just as shallow soil lacks depth for roots to grow, some individuals might initially respond enthusiastically to the gospel but lack a strong foundation. They may be swayed by emotions or external factors, making their commitment to the gospel fleeting and easily undermined when challenges arise.

c. Thorny Soil: Similar to soil choked by thorns, distractions and worldly concerns can hinder someone from fully embracing the gospel. Materialism, worries, and competing priorities can suffocate the desire to trust in Christ and prioritize spiritual matters.

d. Good Soil: The goal is for individuals to be like the good soil, receptive and open to the gospel message. Good soil represents hearts that are willing to listen, understand, and cultivate a lasting relationship with God through Jesus Christ. These individuals are willing to turn and trust in the gospel, allowing it to take deep root in their lives.

Recognizing these different types of “soil” can help us understand how to highlight and exhort the listener to turn from the barriers in their life.

With just a piece of paper and a pen, you can help others understand the fundamental concepts of sin, brokenness, and salvation.

6 Simple Steps to Understanding the Gospel

6 Simple Steps to Understanding the Gospel

We often hear the word gospel in Christianity—perhaps we call something “the gospel truth.” We might say, “Share the gospel,” or “I like gospel music,” or ask, “Which Gospel talks about the birth of Christ?” But what does the word gospel actually mean, and what is the gospel?

There’s a difference between the various words we use for gospel. Broadly, the word can mean the teachings of a religious instructor or something considered an infallible truth. For instance, there is an Islamic gospel. Gospel music is a particular music genre that arose out of the religious revivals of the 19th century and might also apply to Christian music that spreads the word of God. But for Christians, the word gospel means two things primarily: It can refer to one of the four Gospel accounts, theological literature written by Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, that tell the story of Jesus’s life, ministry, and teachings.  It can also generally refer to the good news of Christ and our salvation found in scripture. Most of the time, when we use the word “gospel,” this last definition is what we mean: the good news of what God has done in Jesus.

Let’s take a look at what is the gospel in its full, beautiful, life-changing truth.

1. What Does the Word 'Gospel' Mean?

The New Testament is the second portion of the Bible that discusses the teachings and person of Jesus and events relating to the early church. It was written in Greek, as Greek was the common language of the Mediterranean region where the church started. The Greek word for “ gospel ” is typically euangelion or euangelizō , which translates to gospel, good news, and preaching or proclaiming this good news. It was a way for Jesus and his followers to refer generally to the most important hope of humanity: that Jesus, the son of God , is our pathway to eternity, for all who believe in him can have eternal life.

2. Why Is the Gospel Called 'Good News?'

Jesus expressly told his disciples, 

“This gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” - Matthew 24:14 ESV

After his death and resurrection, he commanded them, 

“Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.” Mark 16:15

This good news is no secret but a triumphant truth Jesus wanted to spread worldwide. Instead, God’s plan for the end of the world does not come into being until the good news is shared throughout the world. Without the gospel—the salvation we have through our belief in Jesus—we have no chance of eternal life. We are separated from God because of our sins, and as Romans 6:23 explains, “For the wages of sin is death.” But, as that same Bible verse continues, “The free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 6:23; what is the gospel?

Jesus told us he is “the way” and the truth and the life, that no one comes to God the Father except through him. It’s good news to us, who are lost without him that we now have this path to heaven and can escape the grave.

John 3:16; what is the gospel?

3. What Is the Core Message of the Gospel?

When Jesus began his ministry, the Bible tells us, 

“Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” - Mark 1:14-15

Before his ascension after the resurrection, Jesus summarized the gospel for his followers, telling them, 

“Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that repentance for the forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things.” Luke 24:46-48

In short, the gospel is about Jesus dying and rising again to forgive people’s sins. It is open and available to anyone who repents and believes that Jesus Christ is our savior. 

The Apostle Paul, whose letters to the early church comprise most of the New Testament and explain many of the concepts rather clearly, reminds us what the gospel is at its core in his letter to the church in Corinth. 

“Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures.” 1 Corinthians 15:1-4

Again, it’s clear: the gospel is that Jesus Christ died for our sins and rose again. In dying for our sins, he sacrificed himself for us, fully paying the debt of the sins we commit against God our Father. Therefore, anyone who chooses to repent and believe in him is forgiven. As Jesus proclaimed in John 3:16 , 

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life."

4. Why Is Believing in the Gospel So Important?

If you hear this and choose not to believe the gospel , then Jesus also makes the consequences clear: Unbelievers are condemned. 

After clarifying the good news in John 3:16 , he added in John 3:17-18 , “For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God .”

The Greek word used here for “condemned” is krino , which means legally judged, decided upon, punished, or under judgment or decision. Another word could be “sentenced” or “doomed.” He elaborates elsewhere, noting, 

“Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.” - John 3:36

5. Where in the Bible Is the Gospel Explained?

Here are a few other verses that explain the gospel in slightly different ways:

  • “Because I live, you also will live.” - John 14:19
  • “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.” - Romans 1:16
  • “For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.” - Romans 5:10
  • “There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” - Romans 8:1
  • “He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.” - 1 John 2:2 (NIV)

Matthew 28:20; what is the gospel?

6. What Are We Supposed to do with This 'Good News?'

As stated above, we should not keep the gospel to ourselves. Christianity is meant for all people—indeed, the whole world. Jesus commanded us to share the good news and make disciples to the ends of the earth, “baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you” ( Matthew 28:19-20 ESV).

Sharing the gospel can be daunting. We may face persecution, lose friends and family, or even experience discrimination. But these potential challenges should not deter us from our mission. They should remind us of the sacrifices made by those who came before us. Jesus told us to share the good news. And to follow the Savior, we must do what he says. 

Amen, and thanks be to God .

Introduction

The Gospel is made up of certain truths that must be heard, understood, believed and acted upon in order for someone to come to saving faith. Understanding each aspect of the Gospel is imperative if one is to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. The following are the six main points of the Gospel.

1. The fact of sin. Romans 3:10,23; James 4:17; Galatians 3:10; James 2:10.

2. The penalty of sin. Romans 5:12; Romans 6:23; Ezekiel 18:20.

3. The penalty must be paid . Hebrews 9:27; Hebrews 2:2,3, 9:22; Romans 2:12.

4. The penalty was paid by Christ . Romans 5:8; 1 Peter 2:24; 1 Peter 3:18; Isaiah 53:5-6.

5. Salvation is a free gift . Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 3:24; Titus 3:5; John 3:16.

6. You must accept . Revelation 3:20; John 1:12; John 6:37; 1 John 5:11- 12.

Men may try other means such as good works, ritualism, church attendance, the "sacraments,” sacrifice, and morality to earn their salvation, but Isaiah 64:6 says all these are worthless—they are "human goodnesses" and are as unclean things.

There are three things necessary for saving faith:

1. Knowledge—awareness of the plan of salvation: the Gospel.

2. Belief—giving mental assent—accepting it as true.

3. Volition—acting upon what you believe.

New words to learn well:

1. Reconciliation

2. Atonement (the Old Testament word for reconciliation)

3. Mental assent

4. Volition

6. Sacrament

7. Death—the basic meaning of the word "death" is separation. There are at least six types of death mentioned in the New Testament.

a. Physical death—the separation of the body from soul and spirit.

b. Spiritual death—the state of man who is unregenerate—apart from God.

c. Eternal death—the eternal separation of a man from God when he experiences physical death while in the state of spiritual death.

d. Temporal death—being out of fellowship with God because of sin. This is the opposite of temporal fellowship, Ephesians 5:14, James 1:15. (Remember death means separation.)

e. Judicial death—Romans 6. This is God's decree that believers are dead to sin.

f. Sin unto physical death, James 5:19-20.

This session will enable you to become somewhat familiar with the plan of salvation, and the Scriptures that support it. Look up the verses and answer the questions as best you can.

The First Point—the Fact of Sin

The first point in understanding the Gospel is that which relates to the condition of man. Men view themselves in varying ways, depending upon one's self-concept and theological background. The word "understand" is a crucial word. Men think they understand themselves and like to think they understand God or whomever their "supreme being" is.

1.What does Romans 3:11 say about man's understanding of a "supreme being?"

2.Concerning man's ability to meet the standards of Jehovah God, we are all _______________ and fail in meeting the standards of___________ Romans 3:23.

3.We think of sin in terms of doing what we shouldn't do. James 4:17 casts more light on the nature of sin and greatly broadens the concept. Here we are told that ____________________________________________ is sin! In this approach to understanding the nature of sin, we can do nothing and yet sin.

4.But what if a person tries to keep the Ten Commandments? What is the problem when we approach God in this way, Galatians 3:10? James 2:10?

Where do these Scripture passages leave men?

The Second Point—the Penalty of Sin

The second and truly significant point is related to the penalty of sin. It is important to understand this, inasmuch as one needs to realize his "lostness" before he can see his true spiritual needs and hopelessness.

1. What was the effect of Adam's sin, Romans 5:12?

2. How do I become a sinner just because Adam sinned, Romans 5:19?

3. Jesus was born as a result of what promise, Gen. 3:15?

4. Why was it necessary that He be born of "the seed of a woman" rather than of the "seed of man"?

The problem relating to the virgin birth of Jesus is involved in this question. The Gospels say that He was conceived by the Holy Spirit rather than through a human father. Mary contributed 23 chromosomes through the egg she held, and the Holy Spirit gave the other 23 in a miraculous way. In this way, she bore One who was the God-man without sin. This was apparently necessary to keep Christ from having a sinful nature. We are not sinners because we sin, but we sin because we are born sinners; we were born with a sinful nature.

5. What is the penalty for sin, Romans 6:23?

What is the meaning conveyed in the concept of "death" as stated in this verse? Look at the verse carefully. When does one experience this penalty according to the teaching of this verse?

6.What does Ezekiel 18:20 teach about the absolute certainty of this penalty?

Where does this leave me, a guilty sinner?

The Third Point—the Penalty Must Be Paid

The third point is also vital in the ongoing development of understanding of the Gospel. The charges of sin are not going to be dropped for anyone. That would be a violation of the holiness of God! God seems to require that all sin everywhere must be paid by someone somewhere . Simply not having knowledge of the Gospel does not excuse men.

1. In terms of the above reality, what does Romans 2:12 teach us?

2. What possibility of escape exists for us, Hebrews 2:2-3?

3. What additional truths are taught in Hebrews 9:22, 27?

4. In a real sense, no sin is ever forgiven, because God requires payment for sin. The sinner is forgiven. The sin is paid for by Christ, the perfect sacrifice.

The Fourth Point—The Penalty Was Paid by Christ

The fourth point is the work that Christ has done to eliminate the problems that man has which are so basic to his life and existence in this world. But before we look at God's solution to this problem, let's look at some of man's feeble efforts to solve his problem.

1. Men have offered to God good works, sacrificial living involving self denial, regular church attendance, moral lives (in societies' thinking), and other good deeds. It is not that these things do not have value in our society. They certainly do. But before a holy and righteous God, they have what kind of value? Isaiah 64:6.

These are simply of no value whatsoever in helping man reach God or please Him. They are as worthless as filthy rags in pleasing Him.

You will remember we stated that no sin is ever forgiven. It is paid for either by the sinner or by Christ. This brings us to God's provision for the problem of man and how He has brought about reconciliation, Eph. 1:7.

2. The greatest problem God ever sought to solve was how He could be __________ and yet be the One who _____________ those who believe in Jesus, Romans 3:26.

3. What was the grandest expression of God's love for us sinners? Romans 5:8.

4.On the cross, Christ bore _________ __________ that we might ________________________________________________, 1 Peter 2:24.

5.The purpose of Calvary is stated as being that, _____ _____ _____ _____ _____, 1 Peter 3:18.

6.We are likened to ______________ , and the Lord has laid on Christ ______ ____________ _____ _____ _____ , Isaiah 53:6.

The Fifth Point—Salvation is a Free Gift

The fifth point of the Gospel is one that is almost universally misunderstood. For good reason, the god of this age (Satan) has put into the minds of people the idea that works are needed to please the Father. The reality of salvation being a free gift is totally foreign to the thinking of humans. It is built into the structure of our unregenerate thinking that something must be done to merit life. After all, as the saying goes, “that's the way we would do it if we were God.”

1. If salvation then is a gift, how can it become ours? _______________________________, Ephesians 2:8-9. Both this verse, and Romans 3:24 tell us that salvation is purely a matter of ! The word "grace" has special meanings for us and will become one of the most important words in the entire structure of salvation. Suffice to say for now, it means "everything for nothing for those who don't deserve anything.” It is God who accomplishes our salvation through the Holy Spirit.

2. Titus 3:5 tells us that ____________________ have nothing to do with our salvation. The Holy Spirit is active in our salvation in what ways?

Write in your own words what this has meant in your own life in a practical sense.

The Sixth Point—You Must Accept

The sixth point of the Gospel is our required action. If understanding has been adequate to this point and the individual is truly moved by the Holy Spirit, there will be relatively good understanding that salvation is a ________   ________, Romans 6:23.

1. The one thing I must do to get a gift is __________ _____ John 1:12. What will happen if I try to add works to it? Romans 11:6

2. What promise is given to all who simply come to Jesus? John 6:37

3. What assures us of eternal life? 1 John 5:10; The testimony that _________ has given.

4. All that one must do to have the Son is __________ __________, John 1:12.

There is never a reason for us to be rejected if one accepts Christ into his life.

Christ will not _____ _______ John 6:37.

Three Things Necessary for Saving Faith

To be sure one’s faith is "saving faith" there are three distinct elements that are necessary and observable.

1. Romans 10:17 says faith comes by_____________. When I hear something, I become a _________ of it. I therefore have k ______________ of the plan of salvation. In view of this, the first element of a faith that brings eternal life is _________________.

2. I can obviously be aware of an idea or a body of information and yet have some doubt as to its authenticity. I must _____________ this information if it is going to mean something that will be life-changing for me, 1 Peter 1:8.

3. But simply being aware and giving mental assent are yet insufficient. There must be an action on my part that appropriates the work of Christ. This action is spoken of in John 1:12 as ___________ ______. Much of the world believes that Jesus lived and that He was a good man. Many attest belief in His resurrection and that He is the Son of God and died as a sacrifice for the sins of man. This is not enough ! There must be an appropriation of His work for us and this is only accomplished through receiving Him as Personal Savior — inviting Him into my life and confessing Him as Lord, Romans 10:9-10.

Questions for Review and Discussion

1. Can something that is a gift ever be withdrawn if no conditions are attached to receiving it?

2. When do we receive eternal life? 1 John 5:11,12

3. At what point in the suffering of Christ on the cross did He actually bear our sins? Matthew 27:35-46

4. What part does Lordship play in salvation?

5. How can one know his faith is "saving faith?"

6. What is the problem when we mix faith and works? Romans 11:6

7. What was the dilemma God faced in providing salvation for mankind? Romans 3:26

8. What two basic attributes of God were involved in His provision of salvation?

9. Man is portrayed to be dead in trespasses and sins. How can a dead man believe? Eph. 2:4-5

Most people in the world have no experience of lasting joy in their lives. We’re on a mission to change that. All of our resources exist to guide you toward everlasting joy in Jesus Christ.

A Topical Survey

The gospel is good news because it brings a person into the everlasting and ever-increasing joy of Jesus Christ. He is not merely the rope that pulls us from the threatening waves; he is the solid beach under our feet, and the air in our lungs, and the beat of our heart, and the warm sun on our skin, and the song in our ears, and the arms of our beloved.

What Is the Gospel?

The gospel is the good news that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, died for our sins and rose again, eternally triumphant over his enemies, so that there is now no condemnation for those who believe, but only everlasting joy. That’s the gospel.

The Greatest Good of the Gospel

The greatest good of the gospel is not forgiveness, justification, or eternal life — as good as these are. The highest, fullest, deepest, sweetest good of the gospel is God himself, enjoyed by his redeemed people. The gospel is the good news that God bought for us the everlasting enjoyment of God.

Lesson 4: Simple Presentation of the Gospel

Lesson four: simple presentation of the gospel.

We have learned that the messenger of the gospel must first be saved, and filled with the Holy Spirit.  This is essential in winning others to the Savior.  How do we effectively present the good news to those who are unsaved?  Be simple.

A missionary was upset because the people to whom he ministered didn't understand the deep things of God despite all his efforts to teach them.  A missionary friend suggested, "Before you teach them the XYZs of the Bible, why don't you start out by teaching them the ABCs?"  Good advice.

The ABCs of Salvation

You can use this approach with children, who are acquainted with the ABCs that they have learned at school.  You may be surprised to know that the same order of presentation can be used effectively when witnessing to adults as well.

A - ADMIT that he is a sinner in need of salvation.  Show him that he is guilty of sin.  Romans 3:23.   He deserves to die.  Romans 6:23.   One day he will be judged by the Lord.  Hebrews 9:27.   He cannot save himself by good works.  Titus 3:5.   (Here you put your memory verses to work.)

B - BELIEVE the facts of the gospel.  The Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, died for our sins on the cross, and He rose again from the dead.  He is the Savior of those who believe in Him.  Romans 5:8; John 3:16, 36.

C - CALL upon the Lord.  Ask Jesus to come into his heart.  Psalm 145:18; Romans 10:13.

Once you have learned the ABCs use them in sharing the gospel of Christ.

The Three Rs of Salvation

Students are familiar with the 3 Rs of education: reading, writing, and 'rithmetic.  You might use the 3 Rs in your witness for the Lord.

R - RECOGNITION of sin and its consequences.  Use the same Scriptures as A in the ABCs.

R - REPENTANCE of sin.  This means that we acknowledge our sin, and turn to the Lord.  Acts 17:30 is a good verse to use here.

R - RECEIVE the Lord Jesus as Savior by faith.  John 1:11, 12.   Believing is receiving.

An Equation of Salvation

People consider mathematics an exact science, so the following equation may be helpful in presenting the gospel in no uncertain terms.  The equation of salvation is based upon the truth of Ephesians 2:8-10.

Ask the other person to solve the following math problem.

3 + 2 - 1 = ?

Obviously the correct answer is 4.  You might ask the person if they are sure that 4 is the right answer.  Then say, "There's no doubt about it."

Next read Ephesians 2:8, 9.  "For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast."   Proceed to make an equation out of this passage.  It will look like this:

Grace + faith - works = salvation

If works were necessary for salvation, the equation would be written:

Works + faith - grace = salvation

But that would never work, because we cannot be saved apart from the grace of God.  It is the test of the gospel.  Do you remember Romans 11:6?  Grace and works don't mix.  This was discussed in Lesson Two under The Gospel of the Grace of God.

Next rewrite the equation.

3 + 2 = 1 + ?

Again, the correct answer is 4.  Very clever.  Are you sure?  Of course!

Now look at Ephesians 2:10.  "For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them."  What does this mean?  How do we write this verse in equation form?

Grace + faith = salvation + works

The grace of God and faith in Christ results in a salvation that produces good works.  When we are saved we are "created in Christ Jesus for good works."   Good works are important, but they aren't the basis of our salvation.  They are the result of our salvation, demonstrating the reality of our faith in Jesus.  Faith is the root; works are the fruit.

The gospel of Christ is not good news of a "hope so" salvation.  The salvation that Jesus has made available to us is a sure salvation.  It is as sure as the promises of God.

The Simple Truth of John 3:16

Sometimes we are so clever we fool ourselves.  There are times when John 3:16 is all that's necessary in our presentation.  "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."

God loved the world.  The problem is that the world doesn't love God.  But God solved the problem of our sins in giving His Son, the Lord Jesus, to die on the cross for our sins.  Whoever believes in Him will not perish, but have everlasting life.  It's all there in one verse.

Be on Target

Whenever you witness to others, regardless which presentation you use, always aim for the heart.  Witnessing for Christ is more than sharing information.  Some Christians think that it's enough to state the basic facts of the gospel and leave it at that.  The apostle Paul went beyond the impartation of truth.  He did more than announce the message.  To the Corinthian church he wrote, "We persuade men."  2 Corinthians 5:11.   The target is the heart.  "For with the heart man believes to righteousness."   R omans 10:10.

Don't get sidetracked.  Stick to the truth of the gospel.  It is so easy to get caught up in speaking about something else.

After you have clearly presented the message, ask for a response, saying, "Would you like to receive the Lord Jesus as your Savior?"  If the unbeliever is hesitant, you might encouragingly add, "I'll pray together with you.  You can pray after me."  Then lead him to Jesus.

The Holy Spirit is the driving force behind your gospel arrow as you aim for the heart.  Depend upon the Spirit of God in your endeavor to win souls for the Lord.  May it be said of your gospel witness that it was done "not in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Spirit and in much assurance."   1 Thessalonians 1:5.

Gospel Presentations

Romans road.

There are many variations of gospel presentations that do a good job of explaining the way of salvation as set forth in the New Testament. One that is very helpful and straightforward is the Romans Road : [ Quoted from https://www.gotquestions.org/Romans-road-salvation.html]

The first verse on the Romans Road to salvation is Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” We have all sinned. We have all done things that are displeasing to God. There is no one who is innocent. Romans 3:10-18 gives a detailed picture of what sin looks like in our lives. The second Scripture on the Romans Road to salvation, Romans 6:23, teaches us about the consequences of sin – “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” The punishment that we have earned for our sins is death. Not just physical death, but eternal death!

The third verse on the Romans Road to salvation picks up where Romans 6:23 left off, “but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 5:8 declares, “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Jesus Christ died for us! Jesus’ death paid for the price of our sins. Jesus’ resurrection proves that God accepted Jesus’ death as the payment for our sins.

The fourth stop on the Romans Road to salvation is Romans 10:9, “that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” Because of Jesus’ death on our behalf, all we have to do is believe in Him, trusting His death as the payment for our sins – and we will be saved! Romans 10:13 says it again, “for everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Jesus died to pay the penalty for our sins and rescue us from eternal death. Salvation, the forgiveness of sins, is available to anyone who will trust in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

The final aspect of the Romans Road to salvation is the results of salvation. Romans 5:1 has this wonderful message, “Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Through Jesus Christ we can have a relationship of peace with God. Romans 8:1 teaches us, “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” Because of Jesus’ death on our behalf, we will never be condemned for our sins. Finally, we have this precious promise of God from Romans 8:38-39, “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Would you like to follow the Romans Road to salvation? If so, here is a simple prayer you can pray to God. Saying this prayer is a way to declare to God that you are relying on Jesus Christ for your salvation. The words themselves will not save you. Only faith in Jesus Christ can provide salvation! “God, I know that I have sinned against you and am deserving of punishment. But Jesus Christ took the punishment that I deserve so that through faith in Him I could be forgiven. With your help, I place my trust in You for salvation. Thank You for Your wonderful grace and forgiveness – the gift of eternal life! Amen!”

TWO WAYS TO LIVE

But my favorite presentation of the gospel is the one entitled “Two Ways to Live — the choice we all face” by Phillip D. Jensen and Tony Payne.

hoping to teach this over 6 weeks in church for all age services over the UK summer, starting mid-July, mainly to Christians as a training and theology tool. would value any helpful resources, activities for children / adults, images for powerpoint etc to design a whole service around each of the 6 themes.

Hi! Thank you for the great resources that proclaim Jesus! We are looking to use this in a Youth Presentation at our Church? Is that okay permission wise? Thank you God Bless

Hi David Great to hear you are using Two Ways to Live. You need to contact Matthias Media to ask about permission from the publisher. Thanks for your enquiry.

Hi! Some time ago we were given permission by the Good Book Company to include contact details for the ‘Two Ways to Live Gospel Presentation’ as a LINK in our church website. On checking through the draft I now find that there was a revision by Matthias Media. Not knowing whether or not this requires a fresh permission from Matthias Media could you please enlighten me? Thank you.

Hi Peter Thanks for your enquiry. It is now necessary to contact Matthias Media to ask permission from the publisher for anything to do with using the presentation or linking to it. Thanks.

I was a scared, scarred, fatherless kid in North Denver wondering how in the world I ever got stuck in a family full of bodybuilders and street fighters.

As a nervous, quiet, bookish boy, I did not fit into my wild family.

Terrified by the relentless loudness and intensity of my always-ready-to-fight family, I used to hide underneath the kitchen sink with nothing but my little red King James Version Bible and a flashlight. Although I knew the answers to all my troubles were in that book, I couldn’t get past the Shakespearean language to the actual meaning of the words.

So I stayed confused.

My Baptist grandparents always took me to church, where I tried to understand how to be saved. But phrases like “confess all your sins” and “ask Jesus into your heart” confused me. I thought if I forgot to confess one sin I’d go to hell. I thought if Jesus came into my heart and then I got a heart transplant I would lose my salvation.

The Dawning of Hope

On Sunday, June 23, 1974—50 years ago today as I write this—I asked my grandpa to walk the aisle with me so I could publicly declare my intention to get water-baptized. I figured that I had asked Jesus into my heart a thousand times, so one of them had to take.

As I walked the aisle with my grandpa, I could feel the sanctuary full of Baptist eyes on me. Pastor Claud Pettit waited at the front of the stage as the organ music played. When we reached the front, he asked me why I had come forward. I told him I wanted to get baptized.

He then said these life-altering words: “Before you get baptized, you must be a Christian. That means you believe Jesus died in your place for your sins on the cross and that he rose from the dead three days later. That means that you have trusted in Jesus to save you from your sin. Have you done that?”

In a millisecond it all clicked. That was the clearest presentation of the gospel I had ever heard. Quickly, in the depths of my soul I uttered the words, “I trust in you, Jesus, to save me from my sins” and then answered yes to Pastor Pettit’s question.

He had no idea he had just led me to the Lord.

As he announced to the church my intention to get water-baptized, everyone clapped. But it was as though I could hear the angels of heaven applauding, celebrating my conversion.

In that moment, the fear and trepidation that had defined my eight circles around the sun disappeared.

I had hope in my heart for the first time, because I had Jesus!

How the Gospel Changed Everything

After all the handshakes of congratulations from church members, my grandma and I made our way out to their yellow Ford F-150 truck and waited for Grandpa to drive us all home. It was there that I told my grandma I had just gotten saved.

With tears in her eyes, she congratulated me and wrote these words in my little red Bible: “Greg Stier received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior on June 23rd, 1974.”

I keep that red Bible on my desk at  Dare 2 Share as a reminder of how the gospel changed everything for me—and for my family.

It was around the same time that my rough-and-tumble family members started coming to Christ because of a wild, hillbilly preacher nicknamed “Yankee.”

A few years ago, I wrote a memoir called  Unlikely Fighter  that details all the craziness of my entire family’s radical conversion to Christ. I encourage you to pick up a copy on  Amazon  or listen to it on  Audible .

I’ll finish this post with a prayer of thanksgiving:

Dear Father, thank you for saving me 50 years ago today. Thank you for the simple message of Christ and Him crucified that changed everything for me. I praise you for five decades of utter faithfulness to me. You’ve been a light to my path in the dark time and protected me in the dangerous times. And like my grandfather’s giant hand held mine as I walked down the aisle to get saved, you’ve held my hand through the ups and downs of this life ever since. You’ve been an ever-faithful Father, my only father, and I’m your ever-grateful son. In Jesus’ name, amen .

How to Make a “Good” Presentation “Great”

  • Guy Kawasaki

simple presentation of the gospel

Remember: Less is more.

A strong presentation is so much more than information pasted onto a series of slides with fancy backgrounds. Whether you’re pitching an idea, reporting market research, or sharing something else, a great presentation can give you a competitive advantage, and be a powerful tool when aiming to persuade, educate, or inspire others. Here are some unique elements that make a presentation stand out.

  • Fonts: Sans Serif fonts such as Helvetica or Arial are preferred for their clean lines, which make them easy to digest at various sizes and distances. Limit the number of font styles to two: one for headings and another for body text, to avoid visual confusion or distractions.
  • Colors: Colors can evoke emotions and highlight critical points, but their overuse can lead to a cluttered and confusing presentation. A limited palette of two to three main colors, complemented by a simple background, can help you draw attention to key elements without overwhelming the audience.
  • Pictures: Pictures can communicate complex ideas quickly and memorably but choosing the right images is key. Images or pictures should be big (perhaps 20-25% of the page), bold, and have a clear purpose that complements the slide’s text.
  • Layout: Don’t overcrowd your slides with too much information. When in doubt, adhere to the principle of simplicity, and aim for a clean and uncluttered layout with plenty of white space around text and images. Think phrases and bullets, not sentences.

As an intern or early career professional, chances are that you’ll be tasked with making or giving a presentation in the near future. Whether you’re pitching an idea, reporting market research, or sharing something else, a great presentation can give you a competitive advantage, and be a powerful tool when aiming to persuade, educate, or inspire others.
