Below is a brief video that Justin Taylor posted on his blog today. It is an evangelism tool that offers a quick and helpful summary of the Gospel. Perhaps this would be a helpful tool for some of you to use. It might provide a way to start a gospel conversation or be a good follow-up to a gospel conversation. For example, you may be able to send the video to a non-believing friend or family member. Ask them to take 5 minutes to watch it and then ask them for feedback. What did they think? Did it make sense or was it confusing? The hope is a conversation will follow. Or if you are able to have a gospel conversation with someone you could leave them with this video for further consideration.
I refer to this video as a tool because I believe that is all that it is. In evangelism, there are no silver bullets. Therefore, I want to stress that things such as this video or gospel tracts can be helpful, but they should never be used to replace personal conversation due to laziness or cowardice. The Lord’s plan for evangelism is His people proclaiming the good news (Matt. 28:18-20; Acts 1:8). So if you use such tools, I would encourage you to always follow-up and call folks to respond to the good news…it’s news that demands a response!
