"You must bring a lot of happiness into this world," said the young businessman with tears of joy and gratitude in his eyes. He had just prayed with me and received Christ as his Savior and Lord. He and his wife had been looking for God for some time, he said, and now he was eager to take the Four Spiritual Laws booklet home with him so that he could in turn introduce his wife to Christ.
The words of this joyful young Christian have come to my mind again and again: "You must bring a lot of happiness into this world" by sharing the Lord Jesus Christ with tens of thousands of students and lay people around the world.
The apostle Paul related this experience to the Colossians, "Everywhere we go we talk about Christ to all who will listen."
You have the privilege of participating with our living Lord in the fulfillment for His Great Commission in our generation. In my opinion, the only way to change the world is to change individuals. Changed people, in sufficient numbers, will produce changed campuses, changed communities, changed cities, states and nations - yes, in a very real sense, a changed world. Jesus Christ is the only One who can change people from within. You can help to change the world by introducing people to Jesus Christ.
One of the greatest misconceptions of the centuries is the idea so prevalent among Christians that men and women do not want to know God. Wherever I go around the world, I find ample proof that just the opposite is true. The Holy Spirit has created a hunger for God in the hearts of multitudes. From my experience and through much observation, I am fully convinced that the majority of non-believers throughout the world are ready to receive Christ when properly approached with a clear and simple presentation for the gospel by a Spirit-filled witness.
Yet, tragically, most Christians have never introduced a single person to the Lord Jesus. There are two good reasons for this.
First, the average Christian is living a defeated, spiritually impotent, fruitless, worldly (carnal) life. He is not walking in the fullness and control of the Holy Spirit - as one Christian leader explained his reluctance to witness, "My kind of Christianity is worth exporting." If this is true in your life, I encourage you to review my messages on the subjects of How You Can Experience God's Love and Forgiveness, How You Can Be Filled With the Spirit and How You Can Walk in the Spirit.
The second reason is a lack of training. Most Christians have never been trained to communicate their faith in Christ effectively. They have never learned how to begin a conversation about Christ, how to explain the gospel simply and clearly, and how to lead a person to make a decision to receive Christ by faith.
In the coming pages, I want to share with you the reasons Jesus wants you to witness, which relates to your motives; and how you can go about witnessing effectively, which concerns methods.
