    I have the bracelet and had our kids make them during Bible School. I've used it to witness to over 300 people.

    the best way is just to explain to your friends what happened to you when you got saved. how it has made a difference in your life.

    you can also use tracts. they are one of the best methods for witnessing. chick tracts are great because they are in cartoon format and people just can't help but read them. you can see them online at www.chick.com and you can order them too. if you want free tracts, you can get them from the Fellowship Tract League. you can read their tracts at this website.

    and order them here

    get yourself a pocket-sized new testament and memorize verses like...

    Rom 3:23
    Rom 6:23
    Rom 5:8
    Rom 10:9-10,13
    John 3:16
    John 3:36
    1 John 5:13

    just to name a few. you don't have to memorize them, just write them down in the front of your NT and look them up and show them to people. it's easier than you think. the Holy Spirit will lead you.

    How did YOU get saved?

    You heard/read the Gospel message
    The Spirit of God worked in your heart so
    You turned from your sin
    You trusted by faith in the Savior
    You know that you are now a child of God

    So if you just tell someone to "believe" or "trust Jesus", you are short-circuiting the steps YOU went through.

    I suggest that you concentrate on sharing the wonderful Gospel message with your friends and family. Allow GOD to convict and convince them.

    Also, just share what happened to YOU! Giving out the Gospel is just like "one beggar telling another beggar where to find bread". But remember, let GOD do the work in their heart, not you!

    Hope that helps.

    Hey, gnf,

    Welcome to the family. First of all, I just wanted to warn you to stay away from the Chick tracts. A lot of people find them offensive and that can defeat the purpose of sharing God's love if you hand them a tract that's so unloving.

    Primarily, there are three pieces of advice I would give you as someone who's been there and made all of the mistakes.

    1. Just to be yourself and share what God's done for you. Don't try to manufacture opportunities to share the Gospel. Just be yourself and let God lead.

    2. Don't be intinidated if you don't know all of the answers.

    3. Don't feel like you have to save everybody. It's not your job to rack up numbers or notches in your Bible, it's your job to be Jesus to the world. If you will just show grace to those you come in contact with, the opportunities to share the Gospel will fall into place when God is ready.
