Checking question #2

In last week's newsletter, we shared a useful checking question that you can use in your gospel conversations. It was:

"What would you say to God if God asked you, 'Why should I let you into heaven?'"

As you can see a checking question is a question you ask to figure out if a person has understood the gospel message you have just shared with them.

The second one we'd like to share is this:

“So let’s say you trusted that Jesus died for you today and on your way home you happened to sin again, and then you died 2 minutes later, where would you go, heaven or hell?”

If the person responds with, "Hell", they haven't fully got it yet. You could ask, "But did Jesus die for just your past sins or also for your future sins?"

The correct answer is that He paid for both our past and future sins, and so once you've made that clear, say to the person, "Since that is the case, go back to that previous question, where would you go?"

If someone keeps holding on to the idea that if he sins again he will be sent to hell, that would evidence that he is probably trusting in his performance of not sinning again to save him or his "asking for forgiveness" rather than trusting in the sacrifice of Christ to save him.

Once the person understands the point, you could then explain that the desire to be obedient to Christ is a fruit of salvation but not the basis for it.

This checking question is a good one to ask at the end of every witnessing encounter as it really helps people understand the full effect of Jesus' sacrifice. Try it this week.

NZ Mission Update

Well, the NZ Summer Mission is complete. It was, by far, the best one to date. This is mainly due to the trip to Dunedin, the first time we have ventured past the borders of Christchurch.

The people in Dunedin were friendly, open to receive tracts, very interested in the big flip chart, and happy to chat about the deep questions of life.
