Resources: Gospel of John and Halloween Tracts

There are many ways that tracts can help us be effective in sowing the seed of the Good News. Tracts can provide an opening for us to share our faith. We can watch people’s reaction as we give them tracts, and see if they are open to listening to spiritual things.

Gospel tracts can find their way into people’s homes when we can’t, and they don’t get into arguments; they just state their case. So, be bold in sharing your testimony and hand people a tract which just might help them make the most important decision they will ever make.

Resource: How to Share Your Testimony Biblically

This assignment will help you to do three things:

  1. Help you write down your testimony which you can then share with others.
  2. Help you get ready to share your God story with someone in a conversation.
  3. Allow the church to rejoice in what God has done and share it if willing.
    If you feel led to share it with us send an email to ccfergusfalls@gmail.com

The most powerful witness you can give to someone is your testimony.

What is a Testimony?
The Hebrew word for testimony is `eduwth, which means to witness, and the Greek word is martyreō, which means to bear witness, testify, bear record, have a good report. So testify what God has done. There are three parts of a Biblical Testimony, before Jesus, coming to Jesus, and abiding in Jesus. Here are the three sections you’ll want to write down as you reflect on your life without Jesus, how you came to trust in Jesus, and life now with Jesus.

1. ­ My Life Before Jesus Christ
● All my good works and actions were like filthy rags before God – Isaiah 64:6
● My sin separated me from God – Isaiah 59:2, 1 John 3:4
● Because of my sin I deserve death – Romans 6:23


2. ­ My Life Changed by Jesus Christ
● I came to my senses and realized that I personally sinned against God – Luke 15:17­18
● I believe Jesus died on the Cross for my sins, and He rose again – 1 Corinthians 15:3­4
● I turned from sin and turned to God by placing my trust in Jesus – Ephesians 2:8­9


3. ­ My New Life in Jesus Christ
● God removed all of my guilt and shame and gives me joy – 1 John 1:9, Acts 3:19
● God loves me and has given me a satisfying life and the promise of Heaven – John 3:16
● I have peace with God through a relationship with my Lord Jesus Christ – Romans 5:1

Your testimony should include how you became a disciple of Jesus so try to be specific in telling what Christ has done in your life, but don’t glorify your past as that was before Christ. If you received Jesus as a young child, you still have an awesome testimony, and you can tell how God keeps a person from falling into gross sin. This is your God story so be sure to tell the truth about how Jesus saved you, changed your life, and allow the Holy Spirit to lead you.

Every follower of Jesus can tell others of God’s grace because we have been saved from the wages of sin which leads to death, and have received the free gift of eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord. Pray and remember your testimony or God story is really about what God has done in your life.

“The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest.” – Luke 10:2

Book: Out of the Comfort Zone by George Verwer

In this book George Verwer reflects on his forty-three years as leader of Operation Mobilization to talk straight about what he believes is needed in missions for the twenty-first century.

This is a humble and hard-hitting approach at the same time. He doesn’t pull any punches in his heart’s cry for a ‘grace-awakened’ approach to mission, and wants to cut through any superficial ‘spirituality’ that may be lurking inside you.

He shows how many Christians have the feeling that someone else will take care of it and have a vague, detached and unrealistic attitude to what mission is about. This book will challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and adjust your view of how missionary work is being done.

George Verwer is known throughout the world as a motivator and mobilizer. Out of the Comfort Zone should only be read by those who are willing to accept God’s grace, catch His vision and respond with action in the world of mission.

Book: Speaking of Jesus (The Art of Not-Evangelism) by Carl Medearis

Tired of defending Christianity? There’s good news…you don’t have to.

Once we become a follower of Jesus we somehow pick up learning a new language called Christianize and some of us learn new ways to define who is in and who is out of the kingdom of God. But what if we are missing out on speaking to people on a level they understand and in a way we did before we came to faith in Christ? 

In “Speaking of Jesus”, author Carl Medearis draws on his experience of international reconciliation between Muslims and Christians to remind us of the heart of the matter: Jesus. In this thought provoking book he shares with us tools, stories, and the foundation we need to move beyond “us” and “them” and simply talk about the One who changes it all.

Many are ready to debate on moral positions but they can miss out on the who gave us our morals. As Carl writes, “While others are explaining and defending various -isms and -ologies we’re simply pointing people to our friend. The one who uncovers and disarms. Who leads people right to himself. The beginning and the end of the story. A good story indeed.”

This is a refreshing book about simply pointing people to Jesus and simply being reminded to speak of Jesus. The more you know Jesus the more your ready to share about Him with others (and if not spend some more time in the four Gospel accounts to learn how to engage with people in the midst of these ordinary conversations the way Jesus did).

The question I was left with after reading this book was: Where would Jesus be hanging out at in our local town, and if He would be there, why do I not go there and point people to Jesus?
