Why training•Jesus set the example: He spent three years (24/7) of intensive on-the-job training with His twelve disciples.•Scripture exhorts training-equipping the saints.•The Bible teaches us to be ready to give an answer for the hope that is within us.•Paul admonished Timothy to teach others also.
Need-- to be equipped•Many attempt witnessing with little success•Many have little or no training about how to witness effectively.•Many simply fear to witness.•Only about 5% of all Christians ever lead anyone to Christ.
Urgency--to witness•Being a witness was Jesus’ first and last command. It is a mandate to all Christians.•Jesus gave himself-- the ultimate sacrifice --and made the provision for eternal life.•People are going to a lost eternity every second.•We must remember we have a day of reckoning coming.
Purpose To equip Christ followers to become loving,effective witnesses in their daily walk and help reduce the fear of witnessing.
