PERSONAL Evangelism Outline
1) There is one God, He is the Creator, He is Holy, and He is worth knowing!
Gen. 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Deut. 4:39 Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the LORD he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else.
Isa. 46:9 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,
1 Peter 1:16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
Such a God is worthy of our pursuit!
2) Everyone is a sinner separated from God.
Rom. 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Isa. 59:2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hida his face from you, that he will not hear.
We have no idea how unholy we are in comparison to God.
3) There is a penalty for sin.
Rom. 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Heb. 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
Matt. 25:46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
The penalty is judgment and Hell.
4) Jesus paid the penalty for all who believe.
Rom. 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
1 Pet. 3:18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:
Jesus took God’s judgment so believers could have mercy.
5) No one can earn God’s forgiveness and favor.
Eph.2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordainedb that we should walk in them.
Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
We are not saved by our works, but by faith in Jesus’ work.
6) We should respond with repentance and faith.
Mark 1:15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
We should turn from sin and turn to Jesus for forgiveness.
7) We can have assurance of eternal life with God.
1 John 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
Jesus’ resurrection and God’s Word assure believers of forgiveness.
Responding to this great message from the Bible.
A. It is not only right for you to live for the God who created you and owns you, but you will find your greatest fulfillment only when you fulfill the purpose for which you were made, and that is to know God and to enjoy Him as you live for Him forever.
B. Do you believe this great message of the Bible? Genuine belief in its truth is demonstrated by turning from living for yourself and believing that because of His death and resurrection Jesus Christ can make you right with God.
C. Are you willing to express repentance and faith in prayer to God right now?
