IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII“I Want to Witness, But What Do I Say about Football?”
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.
Conversion – We missed the conversion! Sigh. Oh well, at least I have not missed the most important conversion. I made the conversion from the Kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of God when I received Jesus Christ as my Lord.…Have you ever made that conversion? Let’s pray.
End zone – The “end zone” reminds me of eternity. Since Jesus is my Lord, I know that in the end of my life, I will be in heaven’s zone.…How about you? Which zone will you be in?
Fumbled the Ball - I can’t believe he fumbled the ball! Sigh. You know, that reminds me of how God forgives us of all our sins when we fumble the ball in our own lives at work, at school or at home. No one is perfect. God knew that our fumbles in life or our sins would separate us from God, so He sent His Son Jesus Christ who died on the cross for our sins and reconciled us to God so we could go to heaven. So fumbling with Jesus is not so bad, but if you fumble without Jesus, it will be hell…Would you like to receive Jesus as your Lord? Rom. 3:23; 1 John 1:9; Acts 2:38
Goal Posts – As I watch that player try to kick the ball in between those goal posts it reminds me of Matt. 7:13 which says that “broad is the way to destruction and narrow is the way which leads to life.” When a person prays to receive Jesus Christ as their Lord, that means they have chosen the narrow way leading into the heavenly goal of eternal life….Would you like to pray to receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior?Penalty – That penalty will really cost us some good field position. Sigh. It reminds me of the penalty of sin, which is death…When we sin, it costs us from having a good position with God. But Jesus Christ paid the penalty for our sins on the cross so that we could gain back our right position with God & have eternal life…Have you ever prayed to receive Jesus as your Lord? Rom. 3:23; Rom. 6:23
Tackled & Deep Under- As I watch that player get tackled, it reminds me of how our wrong decisions and our sins can make us feel “tackled” just like that football player that is deep under that pile of opposing players…But when a person repents of their sin and prays to receive Jesus Christ as their Lord, then their sin will be removed off of them and they will be reconciled to God once again. He will come and raise you up and give you eternal life in heaven.
Touchdown - The exuberant joy that I get when my team scores a touchdown I believe is the same joy that God and the angels get when a person receives Jesus Christ as their Lord. The Bible says in Luke 15:10 that there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents …Have you ever received Jesus Christ as your Lord & Savior?
Turnover – (If it was to your team’s advantage) Did you see that great turnover?! We have the ball now! That awesome play reminds me of how a life can be turned over to God…All a person has to do is repent and pray to receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.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.”
