You Can Share The Gospel
Session 12: Share Without Fear
"Share Without Fear" is a method of sharing the gospel
developed by William Fay. It has two basic parts. Getting a conversation
about spiral things started and sharing the gospel in a non-confrontation
The greatest obstacle to sharing the gospel is fear. This is true
no matter what approach you use. We don't share because we are afraid.
Most people have no problem talking about their kids, sports, their
work and hobbies. But when it comes to sharing the gospel they choke
up. The difficulty often comes because we can not find a comfortable
way to swing the conversation to spiritual topics. This method shows
you how to do that.
The easiest way to start a spiritual conversation, or turn a conversation
to the spiral, is to ask the person you are talking with a question
about themselves. Such questions as:
To you, who is Jesus?
Do you have any kind of spiritual beliefs?
What do you think happens after you die?
I spent three days on the streets of a Russian city asking everyone
I could this last question. A few people were on a schedule and
couldn't stop to talk, but I'd guess about 9 out of 10 wanted to
talk about what would happen after they died. I had some enjoyable
and interesting conversations, was able to share the gospel with
everyone. Six months later, I'm still corresponding with some of
the people I met and I consider them as my friends.
The second step is to present the gospel... but you don't have
to memorize or say anything. Just let God's word speak.
What you do is to ask the person to read aloud a series of Bible
verses, and then ask them, "What does this say to you?"
Then listen to what they say. If their answer demonstrates they
understand what scripture says, move on to the next verse. If they
do not understand what scripture says, ask them to read the verse
again. The verses are:
Romans 3:23 - "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory
Romans 6:23 - "The wages of sin is death."
John 3:3 - You must be born again. (This is the one exception.
Instead of asking what this verse means, ask, "Why did Jesus
come to die?"
John 14:6 - "I am the way."
Romans 10:9-11 - If you confess with your mouth, you will be saved.
2 Corinthians 5:15 - "No longer live for themselves."
3:20 - Jesus is standing at the door and knocking.
You don't need to memorize the verses. You can mark the verses
in your Bible so they are easy to find. Put a tab on the page with
Romans 3:23. Then next to Romans 3:23, and each of the following
verses, right the next verse you need to have the person read. (As
Once someone has gone through all the verses, and has shown they
understand what they have read, there are five closing questions:
Are you a sinner?
Do you want forgiveness for your sins? (repentance)
Do you believe Jesus died on the cross for you and rose again?
Are you willing to surrender your life to Christ?
Are you ready to invite Jesus into your heart and into your
Then be silent and pray.
These five closing questions are taken, word-for-word from the
"Share Jesus Without Fear" New Testament. I have a problem
with the last question. The Bible never tells us to ask Jesus into
our heart. To be saved we must believe in Jesus Christ as our savior.
We must trust that Jesus Christ died to pay the penalty we owe for
I suggest changing the fifth question to: Do you believe Jesus
died to pay your penalty for disobeying God, and that He paid that
penalty in full?
