Tools (2)

If a carpenter only has a hammer, there are many jobs he cannot do. Carpenters need many tools to do their work.
Like carpenters, we have many tools we can use to help us share the Good News about Jesus. One tool I use is our Bible Reading today. These verses explain why God sent Jesus to die for us. Verse 16 says, “Yes, God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him would not be lost but have eternal life.”
I also use what I call the “ABCs of Salvation”: 1) Admit you are a sinner, 2) Believe in Jesus, and 3) Confess that Jesus is your Lord. These three steps are a good way to begin explaining God’s salvation. Then you can add Bible verses such as Acts 2:38 which talks about repentance and baptism, and Revelation 2:10b which reminds us to stay faithful to God.
Use the tools God has given you to share His love and message of salvation.
