Daily Bible: 9/18/22 - 9/25/22

To conclude our study of the book of Acts consider each day how you can share the Gospel with others. An easy way to start Gospel conversations is through the Ask-Admire-Admit strategy:
1.ASK: Get to know people. Listen to them and learn their story. Ask questions about their background and spirituality.
2.ADMIRE: As a person shares their faith background, point out things about their experience you admire (i.e. dedication, missions).
3.ADMIT: Emphasize that as a Christian, you are a messed-up sinner who needs salvation. Transition into your story and the story of the Gospel.
As you transition into the Gospel story, use the G.O.S.P.E.L. method to explain what you believe.
•God created us to be with Him.
•Our sins separate us from God.
•Sins cannot be removed by good deeds.
•Paying the price for sin, Jesus died and rose again.
•Everyone who trusts in Him alone has eternal life.
•Life with Jesus starts now and lasts forever.
End the conversation with these two questions:
1.Does that make sense?
2.Is there anything holding you back right now from putting your faith in Jesus?

Monday we will start reading through the book of Lamentations and Psalms of lament. As you take time daily to connect with the Bible, remember to:
•OBSERVE(What words/ideas are repeated? What comparisons are made?)
•INTERPRET (How does the writer feel? What are they communicating or asking?)
•APPLY (How does this relate to my life? How will I talk to God differently?)
