In doing research for this series on gospel scripts, I found another outline called FAITH. It seems pretty good and could be a simple tool to share your faith.
Scripts are not automatic
The purpose of a script is to provide you an outline to share your faith when the Lord provides the opportunity.
You have the flexibility to adjust it to your conversational context.
As the conversation moves along, you can add details and back off on other points.
The give and take of a conversation.
Scripts are not meant to be followed in a legalistic format.
There is no cause and effect as in “get the script right and they will believe, get the script wrong and you messed up their eternity.”
God is charge of the whole evangelism process.
The point of a script is to be very familiar with ONE so that you can confidently explain your faith when God provides the opportunity. It’s got a few choice scriptures, and you can likely pick some of your other favorites that make the same point.
FAITH Script to explain the Gospel
In your personal opinion, what do you think it takes for a person to get to heaven and have eternal life?
Allow room for discussion on this question to help you discern what God is doing in the life of the other person.
F Is for Forgiveness
Everyone has sinned and needs God’s forgiveness.
Romans 3:23 “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
God’s forgiveness is provided by the work of Christ.
Ephesians 1:7 “In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our sins, according to the riches of His grace.”
A Is for Available
God’s forgiveness is available for all.
John 3:16 “God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.”
God’s forgiveness is available but not automatic.
Matthew 7:21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord!’ will enter the kingdom of heaven.”
I Is for Impossible
According to the Bible, it is impossible to get to heaven on our own.
Ephesians 2:8-9 “By grace you are saved through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift—not from works, so that no one can boast.”
So how can a sinful person have eternal life and enter heaven?
T Is for Turn
If you were going down the road and someone asked you to turn, what would he or she be asking you to do? (Change direction)
Turn means repent. Turn away from sin and self.
Luke 13:3 “Unless you repent, you will all perish as well!”
Turn to Jesus alone as your Savior and Lord.
John 14:6 “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
H Is for Heaven
Heaven is a place where we will live with God forever.
John 14:3 “If I go away and prepare a place for you, I will come back and receive you to Myself, so that where I am you may be also.”
Eternal life begins now with Jesus.
John 10:10 “I have come that they may have life and have it in abundance.”
H can also stand for how.
How can a person have God’s forgiveness, eternal life, and heaven?
Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
By trusting Jesus as your Savior and Lord.
