How to Share the Gospel (2-3-4)

The following post is adapted from Wilson Gesiler's RAD booklet.

Most Christians I talk to know that they should share their faith, but they often do not know how to share their faith. Sure, they can easily be taught to hand out a tract, but is that really sharing the gospel? The following way of sharing the gospel is a proven method that we often use in our trainings in S. Asia (2-3-4) that is an easy way for people to remember what it is that they are to say when sharing the gospel.

2 - The 2 means that the Gospel has 2 parts - Your story and God's Story

3 - The 3 means that your story has 3 parts:

  • Your life before Christ
  • How you met Christ
  • Your life after Christ
4 - The 4 means that God's story has 4 parts:
  • In the beginning (Gen. 1:31)
  • Sin/Judgment (Romans 3:23, 6:23, Hebrews 9:27)
  • Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 1 Peter 3:18)
  • Your Invitation (John 3:18, 36)
Once sharing (2-3-4) ask them if they want to respond to the invitation by trusting Jesus (Rom. 10:9).
