I have just discovered a great way to share my faith that makes so much sense. For many years, I have shared Christ using the four spiritual laws. I would start and say, "God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life." I would then refer to the fact we have all sinned and fallen short of God's standard. Ray Comfort emphasizes in his method of sharing called "The Way of the Master," that we should point to the Law (the Ten Commandments) first. We must in a loving way show people their need for a Savior because of their sin. I think for far too long we have emphasized how Jesus can give you a full, meaningful, abundant, and purpose filled life. And that is true, He can and does. But, too many people sign on to Christianity because they want that life instead of realizing they are law breakers. Too many Christians bail out when life gets tough because they called out to Christ for the abundant life, not to save them from all of the big Ten Commandments they have broken. So, when life does get tough a true convert to Christianity is kept by the power of God and is grateful because his or her name is written in the Lamb's book of life.
