Not Ashamed

Items needed:
a knife (This needs to be out of sight in a protected place before and immediately after the presentation-no exceptions.)

Presentation:
How many of you have a little brother or sister, maybe 2 or 3 years old? What would you do if one day when you came home from school you found them reaching for a sharp knife that had been left out on the table? You would stop them and put the knife where they couldn’t get it. Why would you do that? Because you know that they could get seriously hurt by having it. It’s sad to think of someone getting hurt or killed. People around us are dying everyday. They are getting hurt much worse than they would with a knife, because they are going to hell. Why is it that we find it easier to stop someone from hurting themselves with a knife than stopping someone from going to hell? How do you stop someone from going to hell? You share the gospel with them. If you are ashamed to share the gospel, then you are more concerned about yourself that you are about them going to hell. That’s being selfish and we know that is wrong. We must not be selfishly ashamed, but we must share the gospel with others.

Power Point:
If you are ashamed to share the gospel, then you are more concerned about yourself that you are about the person who is going to hell.
