1 Corinthians 2
The gospel was once foolishness to you. If you are believing in the gospel now it’s not because you figured it out. It’s not because someone explained it to you perfectly. You believe because the Holy Spirit opened your eyes!
Since the message of the cross is foolish to unbelievers and we want them to believe that doesn’t mean we need a “professional” or the pastor to share the gospel with them. There’s no need to think you are not a good enough speaker to share the gospel. Don’t think, “Well they’re never going to understand this with me telling them.”
Brilliant men and women CANNOT understand the gospel. The gospel must be told but that’s ALL we can do. We must pray and trust the Lord to do only what He can do!
So do not try any underhanded tactics like having them bow their head and close their eyes…raise their hand…repeat a prayer after you. When the Spirit awakens them to the wretchedness of their heart and beauty of the cross of Christ they know how to respond!
Please know the freedom and joy in sharing the foolishness of the cross with anyone because God is the One who saves!
And if you have believed, rejoice because a miracle has happened in you!
