“I Want to Witness, But What Do I Say Around Christmas?"”
Many times the hardest part about witnessing is the transition from an everyday conversation onto the Gospel track. If you do not know how to do this, you will not be witnessing at all. One way to turn the conversation it is through relating the Gospel to objects around you like Jesus did many times in Matthew 13. These object evangelism icebreakers will train you how to turn conversations onto the Gospel track. Jesus is coming soon, so use loving boldness and be compassionate. Then be led by the Spirit using whatever method. You may prophesy or pray for healing, etc. To help pull them in, after the “…”, there is an invitation to be saved.
Candy Cane – The maker of the candy cane invented it in order to share the Gospel message. When you turn it upside down, the shape is in the shape of a “J” which stands for Jesus Christ. When you turn it right side up, you see the Shepherd’s crook because the Lord is our Shepherd watching over us. The candy is rock hard and God is the solid rock upon which we can stand. The candy is white just like God’s holiness and purity. And lastly, the candy cane’s red stripes represent the 39 blood stripes across Jesus’ back caused by the Roman soldiers’ whip lashing and by those red stripes we are healed….So have you ever asked Jesus Christ to be your Lord and Savior? Psalm 23:1; Psalm 62:5; Psalm 18:2; 1 Peter 2:24
Angel – My favorite angel is the one in Luke 2:10 that said to the shepherds: “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David, a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.”….Have you ever received Jesus as your Lord?Christmas Tree – This tree reminds me of how Jesus Christ was born, so that He would die for our sins on the tree, in the form of a cross. 1 Peter 2:24 says that He died so that we “may live for righteousness.” The Christmas tree is really an evergreen tree. “Ever” represents eternity and “green” represents growth. So the evergreen tree reminds me of the fact that Jesus Christ is still alive today for all eternity in heaven. And whosoever believes that Jesus Christ shed His blood and died on the tree (cross) for our sins and rose again and then prays to receive Him as their Lord and Savior shall have eternal life. Then as they read the Word and go to church, they will continue growing like this evergreen tree in their relationship with Him ….Have you ever prayed to receive Jesus as your Savior?
Gift –Jesus Christ is God’s loving gift to whosoever chooses to believe in and receive His Son Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior…Have you prayed to receive God’s gift of eternal life? Christmas is the best time to receive Him. John 3:16
Manger Scene – Isn’t that manger scene beautiful? Let me tell you about Jesus Christ and how He was conceived and how He was born….Do you know the Christmas message? Luke 1 – 2.
Reindeer – The reindeer reminds me of how glad I am that Jesus Christ reigns as the Lord over my life and how dear He is to me… Have you ever prayed to receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior?
Santa Claus – He reminds me of Jesus Christ. If Jesus were here on earth, He would give children gifts just like Santa does because Jesus is loving, kind and giving. Actually Jesus Christ is the Christmas gift. God gave His Son Jesus Christ, Who was born and later died on the cross shedding His blood for our sins so that we could have reconciliation or peace with God and eternal life in heaven. You receive this gift by believing and receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior ….Would you like to pray? 1 John 4:7-10; Isaiah 11:1-7Salvation Prayer: “Father, I believe that Your Son Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. I repent of my sins. Jesus, I ask You to forgive me and come into my heart and be my Lord and Savior. Fill me with the Holy Spirit. Thank You for saving me from hell and giving me eternal life in heaven, in Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
