“Christ’s method alone will give true success in reaching the people. The Savior mingled with men as one who desired their good. He showed His sympathy for them, ministered to their needs, and won their confidence. Then He bade them, ‘Follow Me.’” . . . “Accompanied by the power of persuasion, the power of prayer, the power of the love of God, this work will not, cannot, be without fruit” (The Ministry of Healing, pp. 143, 144).
Using the above quote as the basis for his book, Dr. Philip Samaan focuses on the six progressive steps Christ used in witnessing. He then shows how we can, through an intimate relationship with Him, follow this pattern to bring God’s love, compassion, and transformation to those around us.
As you read, you’ll discover listening skills that will enable you to express sympathy and detect people’s felt and real needs. You’ll learn how to develop meaningful, unconditional friendships that create trust and a yearning to associate with Jesus. And you’ll gain helpful ideas on how to share your personal testimony, use intercessory prayer, and impart biblical truth.
Christ’s method will help free you of any anxiety you might have about witnessing, and enable you to find the joy, spontaneity, and success that come only from having a vibrant relationship with Jesus and genuinely loving people. Living out this method in your spheres of influence will help you impact your family, church, and community for Christ.
