Tell Someone About Jesus

Do you have an answer when asked about being saved? Do you know what to tell someone who asks? Will you be able to tell them what they need to do? Would you like to know what to say? Have you considered following the example the Apostle Paul gave us?

We may be put in a situation where someone may ask us how they can be saved. They may not ask it just that way, but they ask it in one form or another. Knowing how to answer them may seem to be tricky. However, it is not really that difficult.

The simple answer is just what the Apostle Paul told the jailer who had imprisoned him and Silas, “Believe in Jesus and you will be saved.” Some of you may ask about baptism. Sure, that should be done as well. After all, baptism is our outward profession of faith.

But take note of what Paul did following his basic statement. He told them about Jesus. Could he tell them everything about Jesus? No, probably not. But he would have told them what they needed to know to believe in Him. We can do the same. We all know at least some of the stories about Jesus, even if we cannot quote them verbatim. We can tell of Him performing miracles of healing, raising the dead, or forgiving the woman caught in adultery. We can tell them of Him meeting with the woman at the well, sending the disciples out to speak about Him, or maybe even remember a few of the parables.

Each one of us can tell someone what they need to do to be saved. We can help them come into the kingdom of God. We can bring them to Jesus, just as the Apostle Paul did. We don’t need to be an apostle nor have fancy degrees. All we need to do is tell them about Jesus.

I pray we all know that we can tell someone how to be saved. I pray we lead people to Jesus Christ. I pray each one of us will take time to tell someone who is seeking about Jesus. Trust that you have the knowledge. Tell someone about Jesus. Tell them how to be saved. Lead them into the kingdom of God.

Acts 16:31-32 They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.” Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all the others in his house.
