Keep It Simple

R

eceiving Jesus and His love and salvation is a simple, straightforward process. A lot of people have the idea that it’s a lot more complicated than it really is and, sadly, a lot of well-meaning witnesses perpetuate that wrong idea by bringing a lot of points into their witness that aren’t really necessary or helpful. Sadder yet, a lot of people fail to receive Jesus because they are scared away by unwise witnesses who either are too forceful in their presentation, or who try to convince them of things that weren’t necessary for salvation. Jesus simply went about everywhere doing good, showing love and calling, “Come to Me.”1 Point people to Jesus. Talk about His love. Talk about His acceptance and forgiveness. Talk about His power to change, to heal, to comfort, to mend broken hearts and lives. Once people have accepted Jesus, He can lead them along step by step. The Holy Spirit and His Word will reveal the difference
