TOWARDS GLOBAL OUTREACH DAY MAY 28TH, 2016- USING YOUR MOBILE DEVICES FOR EVANGELISM

Posted by: | Posted on: May 26, 2016

STEP 3: GETTING ATTENTION!
I want to believe that the PowerPoint presentation I sent on last step is helpful? I’m sure you are praying and have selected the contacts of those you like to share the gospel with. The next step is to get the people’s attention to develop a relationship with the aim of sharing the gospel. Building relationship is most important part of sharing the gospel online! I believe God wants everyone to know someone who truly follow Jesus, because they may not be ready now, but when they are ready, there will be someone close to help them to Jesus.

GETTING ATTENTION!
Using the DigitalSpace to share the gospel is quite different from the face-to-face personal evangelism. The cyberspace and digitalspace are pull and push technology. It’s a two-way communication platform. Meaning that, you must allow people to respond in sharing the gospel. Open ended-question is a good way to get people attention in a forum or online group, like “What’s life all about?” Direct question is also good for individual attention like “Would you want to know God personally?”

I like to introduce an android app I personally developed to help us share the love of Christ with others. The App can be used to send gospel messges through SMS, WhatsApp, Facebook, BBM, etc. You can also send the messages manually if you don’t have android phone.

You can send messages like this to those contacts that have not known Jesus: (use SMS, WhatsApp or other IMs)

“If you haven’t known God personally, here are four FACTS that will help guide you into a relationship with him. Reply KNOW GOD to this number!” or

“These FACTS will explain how you can personally begin a relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Reply KNOW GOD to this number.” or

“You were created to know God in a personal way—to have a relationship with Him, through His Son, Jesus Christ. Reply KNOW GOD to start a relationship with God now?” or

you prayerfully develop short messages like these to get the person’s attention. Some may not respond, but some would respond because they are ready. When they respond to the message, then it means they are ready to receive the four facts or points or laws whichever you call it.

IT’S BETTER TO WAIT FOR THE CONTACT TO RESPOND BEFORE YOU SEND ANOTHER MESSAGE.
Unless you think it’s OK to send without response from the contact, some people may consider it unsolicited.

FACT 1: GOD LOVES YOU AND CREATED YOU TO KNOW HIM PERSONALLY: You see, this life is not the end of us. This life is preparation for eternity. We have the freedom to decide where we want to spend eternity: with God or apart from God. God thinks you are so valuable that he PLANS to spend eternity with you if you KNOW Him personally! Reply WHY to know why many people don’t know God and are not enjoying God’s love and this wonderful plan?

SHORT VERSION (suitable for SMS 1 page)
FACT 1: GOD LOVES YOU AND CREATED YOU TO KNOW HIM PERSONALLY: Knowing God brings meaning and purpose to life. Reply WHY to know why many people don’t know God?

WAIT FOR RESPONSE AND SEND THE NEXT MESSAGE

FACT 2. MAN IS SINFUL AND SEPARATED FROM GOD, SO HE CANNOT KNOW HIM PERSONALLY OR EXPERIENCE HIS LOVE AND PLANS: The Bible says “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” God is perfect and holy, and our sins separate us from God forever. The Bible says “The wages of sin is death.” This means separation from God. Yet, God still wants us to know him personally. Reply HOW to know how?

FACT 3. The good news is that, GOD SENT HIS ONLY SON JESUS CHRIST TO DIE FOR OUR SINS. Jesus is the Son of God. He lived a sinless life and then died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins. Jesus rose from the dead and now he lives in heaven with God his father. He offers us the gift of eternal life of living forever with him in heaven if we accept him as our Lord and Savior. Are you READY TO ACCEPT HIM? Reply READY to accept him now?

FACT 4. IF YOU WANT TO ACCEPT CHRIST AS YOUR SAVIOR AND TURN FROM YOUR SINS, you can ask him to be your Savior and Lord by praying a prayer like this: “Lord Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. Please forgive my sins and give me the gift of eternal life. I ask you in to my life and heart to be my Lord and Savior. I want to serve you always.” Reply PRAYED if you prayed this prayer and we shall help you to grow in the knowledge of God and progress in the PLAN of God for your life!

WAIT FOR RESPONSE AND SEND THE NEXT MESSAGE

CONGRATULATIONS! You are welcome into the family of God. Christ has stepped into your life as you prayed those prayers. Join a bible teaching church if you know one, if not please ask me. Now you will need to forgive yourself and follow Jesus as your master. Reply FOLLOW GOD whenever you are ready to take the next LESSON to know how to grow in the KNOWLEDGE and PLAN of God for your life.

mDISCIPLESHIP version 2 ANDROID APP
After teaching people on how to use SMS to share the gospel in this simple format, I’ve developed an android app that can help share the above messages automatically. You only need to send the first SMS message, the app will send others as your contact respond automatically while you focus on something else or talk to another person verbally. The app allow you to see records of those responding and to also send to social media.
I will send the link to download the app by tomorrow so you can use it on Saturday May 28 for Global Outreach Day! Please pray along!
