Evangelism Training - Week 3
 at Tri Lakes Church
  August 24, 2005


It was a great night at church teaching the Way of the Master episode, "The Mirror of the Ten Commandments" during week 3 in the Foundation Series.

Tonight we had 118 people who were all willing to watch the video, discuss the questions, and soak in what the Ten Commandments are really for - to use when witnessing to show a person that they have broken God's Law and that they have offended Him - to bring them to a place of repentance towards God.

If you want to see proof of this, see the following bible verses:

Galatians 3:24 - "Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith."

Psalms 19:7 - "The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul..."

Romans 3:19 - "Now we know that what things soever the law says, it says to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God."

Romans 3:20 - "Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in His sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin."

I John 3:4 - "Whosoever commits sin transgresses also the law: for sin is the transgeression of the law."

Romans 7:7 - "What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law."

I Timothy 1:8-9 - "But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully; Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners..."

Okay, back to the class...I discussed some of our personal experiences we've encountered while we have been out witnessing. This really helps in the class, it shows people that they can get out and do this. It is not just for select is for ALL Christians. We are really pressing the issue about people not only listening to this from the sanctuary...but to step out of their comfort zone and DO IT. I believe when it is time for us to go out, we will have willing people. The church bought Living Waters gospel tracts and we were selling them for the time we go out as a group.

After service, quite a few people came up and said how good the message was. There was some teenage girls there from "Teen Challenge" that were saying they would be missing next week, which will be the  "WDJD" episode (which actually shows you step-by-step how to start a conversation with someone you want to witness to), and they really wanted to see it so that they could learn how to witness this way. They wrote down the number to the Teen Challenge office. I am to call the person in charge and discuss possibly going there and showing the videos and teaching it to them. This would be a great opportunity.

People told me that they just sat there, listening to this way of using the Law. They haven't thought of it before, but it is very Biblical and makes sense. I had the same thought when I first watched it.

It was a great night. The church is very receptive to the Way of the Master. Like I said before, the plan is that in a week or two, we will be heading out with a group from church into Branson, with the pastor at the head of the line.

In Christ,
