Personal Witnessing: How Jesus Did It
In John 4:7-26, the Bible gives us the Master's example of how to share the gospel. Notice that Jesus spoke to the woman at the well when she was alone. When witnessing, we will often find that people are more open and honest when they are alone. So, if possible, pick a person who is sitting by himself.
From these verses, we can see four principles to follow: relate, Create, Convict, and Reveal. Here's how Jesus put them into practice:
- Relate: Jesus began by relating to her in the natural realm (v. 7).
- Create: Jesus created an opportunity to talk about the spiritual realm (v. 10).
- Convict: Jesus brought conviction using the Law of God (v. 16-18).
- Reveal: Jesus revealed Himself to her (v. 26).
Before I can preach love, mercy, and grace, I must peach sin, Law, and judgment. John Wesley
