introducing others to
Jesus Christ. Biblically, this is known as evangelism
and is the responsibility of all
Christians. It is the work of the
reaching out through
believers to win others to
repentance from their sin of
unbelief and accept
Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.
Witnessing is not
something we merely do, It is something
we are to BE (Acts
2 Cor 3:2;
Witnessing should never be employed as a
mechanism that provokes anger and fuels
resistance to the Gospel of Jesus
Overcoming the fear to witness
effectively, starts with examining our
motive. The motive to glorify God
cannot be easily discouraged or
defeated. Actually, most
Christians eventually faint when it
comes to witnessing due to a motive that
conflicts with the will of God.
Secondly, The Right Means.
A wise Christian wants to be a witness
that produces fruit (Prov.

this so essential? The Holy Spirit
is able to convict of sin (Jn.
and convey the Truth (16:13), and He
alone can regenerate (Jn.
We must absolutely
depend on the authority of the Word of
God. From God's Word, we learn
what to say, and how to say what needs
to be said. The Christian can learn from
obvious examples of evangelism in the

uncompromising. Don't argue.
3. Seek and pray for opportunities, and
4. Rely on the Lord; keep silently
praying for His guidance.
5. Work with love and perseverance.
6. Lead directly to a definite
acceptance of Christ.

Important Aspect Of Witnessing is Your
Message. What is the
message when witnessing? It is
dogmatically presenting Christ as the
ONLY answer to: Man's Sin, Death,
and Eternal Life. The most
important aspect of witnessing is
presenting CHRIST AS THE ULTIMATUM, NOT
Have a chronological plan in presenting
the Scriptures. Remember, It is by God's
Word only that one can be saved (Rom.10:17)
