Hi, welcome to a new feature on the blog!
5 Minute Mentoring is a new feature brought to you by SermonSubscribe. It’s designed to be a quick hit of practical tools-you-can-use, something that will help you organize, decide, be less stressed, more prepared.
How do you share the Gospel? Do you have a prepared presentation, or do you just “wing it?” I am a big believer in being prepared “to give an answer to any man that asks a reason for the hope that you have” (1 Peter 3:15). I’ve always keep a presentation of the Gospel on tap, so I can succinctly explain it in whatever time frame the Lord gives me to witness.
For some years, I used the “cross bridge” diagram. But something bugged me about it… I couldn’t place it until I saw someone share a different one.
In the last few months, I’ve made a change in how I share the Gospel. This method, called the Three Circles, does a better job of explaining the Kingdom and sanctifying nature of the Gospel, instead of simply ignoring it for a simple transactional focus for salvation.
But check it out for yourself and see what you think:
If you’re interested in purchasing a tract based around this, try this one, which comes in both an app and printed form you can order for your church.
Hope you can tune into the Spirit and see a chance to share the Gospel this week!
Thanks for what you do, pastor!
This video series is brought to you by SermonSubscribe, providing quality preaching by video. Are you burned out as a pastor? Need someone to help lift the preaching load for a time? Do you need a sabbatical, but not sure how you will fill the pulpit?
Are you on a pastoral search committee, but you’re struggling to find a good candidate, and make sure someone is able to preach every weekend? Did your pastor retire, and you’re looking for a new one… but you have to bridge the gap until you can hire a new pastor?
You need to check out SermonSubscribe (www.sermonsubscribe.com). Each week, Darrell Stetler II preaches live in Oklahoma City, edits the High-definition video, and sends it to churches across the United States. By the middle of the week, those churches have a quality Biblical sermon to download, handouts to print out & copy… and all of this for far less than it costs to bring in a special speaker or interim pastor.
