Sometimes Christians get all tongue tied when they try to explain the Gospel to others. Some fear stating the Gospel in plain and simple words because they secretly know that most people are not going to like what they hear.
I know that I have been guilty of trying to water down the message or using analogies that hopefully won't offend people as much. But Scripture tells us that the Word of God is "quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." (Hebrews 4:12) The Word is a sword that cuts and hurts the spiritually and morally proud. It reveals to people who they really are on the inside and it shows them that they are naked and destitute spiritually and in need of Christ's atonement.
Although the gospel is the good news to Christians it can sound like bad news to those that want to make the grade without being in right relationship with God. To the unbelievers, the spiritually rebellious, the spiritually proud, and to any that consider themselves to be a "good person", the gospel message can leave a sour taste in their mouth.
Yet, no matter how much people don't like to hear the gospel truth, we are told that the Word of God never returns void. We must remember that it will certainly have an impact. We must also remember that it is the Holy Spirit that draws people to repentance and to the Lord God. Not our clever way of delivering the good news. Sometimes, you just got to say it like it is. Try sharing the 60 second gospel with a friend, loved one, or acquaintances online, today. You never know who will be impacted by those powerful words and associated Scriptures.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
