1 John 5:12 ) The one who has the Son has the life; the one who does not have the Son of God does not have the life. (NASB)
It really is as simple as that. All of Christianity boils down to the person of Jesus the Christ (Savior, Messiah, Deliverer) of God. Do you recall the ad campaign for milk several years ago? In the campaign many stars and ordinary people were pictured with a prominent milk “moustache” over a banner line which asked “Got milk?”
We could probably best strategize our efforts at evangelism by beginning here with this question: “Got Jesus?” Moving on from that particular question the next likely effective question if we are responding to a negative would be perhaps: “Would you like to?” I have seen this approach more effective at times than a lot of well “strategized” evangelism programs.
Many people have heard of Jesus. Many people are misinformed about Jesus. Many people wrongly associate Jesus with the more aberrant aspects of what I might term “churchianity” which often, either in misdirected zeal or plain sloth and have thereby been alienated by the whole idea of Jesus. How sad and tragic.
Francis Schaeffer wrote a book several years ago entitled The Church before a watching World. It’s true. Many people are waiting to be invited to the “wedding feast”. How long will we keep mute?
