“I Want to Witness, But What Do I Say about Boxing?”
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 around Boxing. 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.
Boxing Match – As I watch those two boxers fight, it reminds me of “the fight of faith”, but in that fight, the battle is in my mind. The devil wants me to think his thoughts of doubt and unbelief, of fear and false judgments. But the Bible says to think on God’s Word, to believe in faith, forgive those that hurt you and to walk in love. It’s called fighting the flesh and allowing the spirit of God to rule and reign….So have you ever fought in that kind of fight?
Bloody Face – As I see that blood it reminds me of Levit. 17:11 that says the blood makes atonement for the soul. So Jesus Christ willingly went to the cross and shed His blood to pay the price for our sins so that all who believe could be forgiven and reconciled to God…Do you believe in Jesus?
Boxing Ring – The boxing ring reminds me of the place where I fight off demonic attacks. That’s in my prayer closet or the place where I go and pray. It says in 1 Tim. 6:12 that we Christians are called to fight the good fight of faith –against the doubt and unbelief that the devil throws at us…So have you ever stepped into that boxing ring?...I mean, have you ever prayed to receive Jesus as your Lord & Savior?
Fight – As I watch those two boxers fight, it reminds me of “the fight of faith”, but in that fight the battle is in my will. The devil wants me to rebel and follow his evil will and ways. It may look sweet, sexy & enticing on the surface, but underneath are evil roots of death & destruction. God wants me to obey Him, trust Him and follow His will for my life. It may look uncertain on the surface, but surely underneath are His everlasting arms, rooted in His love, joy, peace and divine provision…So are you fighting for the devil’s will or for God’s will for your life? Let’s pray.
Judge – The judges reminds me of God who is the ultimate Judge. When we pray to receive Jesus as our Lord, God will always rule for us to win eternity in heaven.
Knockout – Watching that knockout reminds me of when Jesus Christ died on the cross. It looked like He was the one that got knocked out by the devil, but looks can be deceiving. That’s why Christians are called to walk by faith and not by sight. Jesus won the victory 3 days later when God raised Him from the dead! Now whoever believes and prays to receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior will have eternal life in heaven…So would you like to pray?
Punch – As I watch that boxer throw that punch, it reminds me of the power of prayer. Every time I pray and bind the evil powers and rulers of darkness, I am throwing a punch at the devil. It defeats him every time, especially when I pray in tongues...So do you pray?
Water – As I drink this refreshing water, it reminds me of the Living Water, who is Jesus Christ. He said in John 4 that whoever drinks of Him will never be thirsty again and will have eternal life…So have you ever had the Living Water? You can receive Him through a prayer of salvation.
Salvation 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.”
