How to Lead Others to Christ
One day a lady criticized the great 19th-century evangelist D.L. Moody for his methods of evangelism in attempting to win people to the Lord. Moody answered, “I agree with you. I don’t like the way I do it either. Tell me, how do you do it?” The lady replied, “I don’t do it.” Moody then said, “Then I like my way of doing it better than your way of not doing it!”
Do we really believe what we claim to believe? Do we really believe that there is a Heaven and a Hell? Do we really believe that the wages of sin is death? If we believe that, how can we be so casual about telling others of Jesus Christ? Once you pray for a God-given burden for those who do not know Christ, I believe you are more than halfway there in leading others to the Lord.
- You do not need to be a theologian to share your faith. . .though you need to study and know your Bible.
- You do not have to know the answer to every possible question. . .though you can find them once you are asked.
- You do not need to be a master communicator. . .but you will grow more effective as time goes by.
You simply need to be willing and available!
Remember the story of the woman at the well? Once she realized that Jesus was the Messiah, “The woman left her waterpot, went her way into the city, and said to the men, ‘Come, see a man who told me all things I ever did. Could this be the Christ?’ Then they went out of the city and came to Him” (John 4:28–30).
Through that woman’s simple testimony, many Samaritans came to the Lord that day (John 4:39).
