Evangelism

GOD is Real

GOD is real, and everything (well almost everything) you have heard about him
is true! Many may doubt his existence, but you can’t doubt his effects. Look
around. I mean, honestly, do you believe that the infinite depth of space was
produced from nothingness by random fluctuation of quantum forces? I under-
stand the theory and still can’t believe it! The claims of the Bible make much more
sense.

…there is a God in heaven who reveals mysteries…

Daniel 2:28

He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful
God who does no wrong, upright and just is he.

Deuteronomy 32:4

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

Genesis 1:1

“You are my witnesses,” declares the LORD, “and my servant whom I
have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I
am he. Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me. I, even
I, am the LORD, and apart from me there is no savior. I have revealed and
saved and proclaimed—I, and not some foreign god among you. You are my
witnesses,” declares the LORD, “that I am God. Yes, and from ancient days
I am he. No one can deliver out of my hand. When I act, who can reverse
it?”

Isaiah 43:10-13

Remember the former things, those of long ago; I am God, and there is no
other; I am God, and there is none like me. I make known the end from the
beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say: My purpose will
stand, and I will do all that I please.

Isaiah 46:9-10

Then the LORD came down in the cloud and stood there with him and pro-
claimed his name, the LORD. And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming,
“The LORD, the LORD, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to an-
ger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and
forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin. Yet he does not leave the guilty un-
punished; he punishes the children and their children for the sin of the fathers
to the third and fourth generation.”

Exodus 34:5-7

A New Evangelism Tract

No one came to last night’s Bible 101 study that I had scheduled at our house.

In light of that, I’ve determined to not focus on programs that aim to “get people to come” and instead, focus on meeting people one-to-one to key in on evangelism and discipleship. In light of that, I’ve decided to put some time into producing a new evangelistic tract.

I’ll go ahead and post the content here, so you can comment if you wish.

Here is my initial design goal for the project:

  • GOD is real (and everything you have heard about him–well, almost everything–is true.)

    • he is perfect
    • he is good
    • he is loving
  • YOU are important (but most of what you believe about yourself isn’t true.)

    • you are loved
    • you have a purpose
    • you are wounded
    • you are distant
  • JESUS died for you

    • Jesus is real
    • Jesus is perfect
    • Jesus is alive — many convincing proofs (acts 1, 1 cor 11? 15?)
    • Jesus is King
  • GOD restores

    • to wholeness
    • to relationship
    • to your purpose
    • to your future

God’s work in your life looks like this…

  • Awareness of emptiness
  • Pursuit of fulfillment
  • Recognition of God
  • Acceptance of His Will
  • Surrender to Love
  • Living in Love
