What To Do When…You Want To Tell Someone About Jesus

< Go Back to Commander Kellie's Corner

First of all, let me say this is the best “what to do” yet. Telling people about Jesus is one of the greatest joys of life. Not only is it something Jesus asked us, as believers, to do, it is one of the most rewarding and fun parts of life!

My Jesus, Your Jesus
The first key to sharing Jesus is to realize how much WE love and need Him. How can we share this gift with others and not realize that we are offering them a special life with a Friend like no other? He’s done so much for me! How about you? Let’s take a minute to think about how much He blesses us every day. Has He healed you, helped you when you were in trouble, comforted you when you were hurting? He has done all that for me and more, many times over! We could talk a long time about how much Jesus blesses us every day!

Our Best Friend
Thinking about how good He is helps us share Jesus in the most positive way. Sometimes people try to scare others into salvation by only warning them about going to hell. Even though it’s true that people need to know Jesus to go to heaven, that doesn’t really introduce them to Him and His love. How sad for someone to come to know Jesus as a ticket to heaven and not really get to meet our Best Friend—Jesus!

What Jesus Did for Us
Let’s make introducing Jesus—our Healer, Friend, Advisor and Shepherd—our first priority. Heaven is made for ALL people, but the Lord won’t make them choose to follow Him. If people turn Him away, they won’t get into heaven when they die, and that’s not what He wants for anyone. God the Father sent Jesus to become human like us, live perfectly as a man, and go to the cross, bearing the punishment of sin (the penalty for sin is death) for all people who would ever live. And that’s what He did! He gave His life out of love for all humans, including me, you and the person you are sharing Him with. This is true love! John 3:16, New Living Translation, says, “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.”

When we accept Him as our Savior, heaven records that the penalty for our sin was paid. We are instantly made clean with His righteousness.

First Peter 2:24-25, The Passion Translation, says, “He himself carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we would be dead to sin and live for righteousness. Our instant healing flowed from his wounding. You were like sheep that continually wandered away, but now you have returned to the true Shepherd of your lives—the kind Guardian who lovingly watches over your souls.”

Wow! Isn’t He amazing? Superkid, if you have never asked Jesus into your heart, now is the time! It’s so easy and you can pray this for yourself as we learn these easy ABCs of salvation. Take the time to turn in your Bible and read these important scriptures.

ABCs of Salvation
Admit you need a Savior.
– Romans 3:10, 23
– Romans 5:8
– Romans 6:23
Believe that Jesus died on the cross and rose again.
– Romans 14:9
Confess that Jesus is now your Lord.
– Romans 10:9

Superkid, pray this prayer with me: “Father God, I need You. I ask You to forgive me of sin. I believe Jesus died on the cross for me and rose again. Jesus, come into my heart. I make You the Lord of my life. I will listen to You and follow You as You lead me and guide me with Your peace. Amen.”

Yay, Superkid! Not only are you filled with Jesus, you are ready to lead others to Him and to the ABCs of life with Jesus.

Ask the Father to forgive you anytime you do or say something that is a sin. He forgives you right away. (1 John 1:9)
Because you have become a child of God! (John 1:12)
Commit to follow Him and call upon His Name. (John 10:4, 27; Romans 10:13)

Best decision ever, Superkid! Remember this as you tell people about our Jesus: Have NO FEAR—the perfect love of Jesus loving others through you will cast out fear. He is right there with you loving them. If they need healing, lay hands on them first, so they can experience how good He is!

Lastly, remember that this is what we are called to do. Mark 16:15-16, NLT, says, “And then he told them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone. Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved. But anyone who refuses to believe will be condemned.’” He goes on to say that miraculous signs (like healing!) will go with you, so what do you do when you want to tell someone about Jesus?
