When people are considering receiving Christ


When you share the gospel the most important thing you share are scriptures. It would be better to just share scriptures rather than explain the gospel without scriptures. If you need to read the scriptures at first when you are first starting to share your faith, just read them. You will eventually memorize them. In the meantime, see if you can memorize a few. Many are very short and you may already know some. In some cases you can share a portion of the scripture. I’ve colored the most important portion of some scriptures. The scriptures here are some of the common ones used when sharing the gospel. They are in various categories where you would most likely quote them but you can share them at any time. The verses are in the both the King James and the New King James Versions, although you can memorize scriptures from other translations. You may want to start by memorizing one scripture in each category.
