Verses to Use in Witnessing
You may want to mark these key verses in your Bible, so you can find them quickly when explaining these points while witnessing.
God-who He is and what He is like:
John 4:24: God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.
Ephesians 4:6: [There is] one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
1 John 4:8: God is love.
Jesus–who He is, why He came, and what He does for us:
John 8:12: I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.
John 11:25-26: I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die.
John 14:6: I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
1 Timothy 1:15: Jesus came into the world to save sinners.
1 Timothy 2:5: There is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus.
Why we are separated from God’s love-and the solution:
Isaiah 59:2: Your iniquities have separated you from your God; and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear.
Romans 3:23: All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
Salvation is a gift that cannot be earned through good works:
Romans 6:23: The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Ephesians 2:8-9: For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.
Titus 3:5: Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration [spiritual rebirth] and renewing of the Holy Spirit.
Eternal salvation-what it is and how to receive it:
John 3:16: For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
John 1:12: As many as received Him [Jesus], to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.
Revelation 3:20: Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.
How to know you have eternal life once you have received Jesus as your Savior:
John 3:36: He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.
John 5:24: He who hears My Word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.
John 10:28: I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.
Acts 16:31: Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved.
Why we need the Holy Spirit:
Matthew 3:11: I [John the Baptist] indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He [Jesus] who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.
John 14:16: I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever.
John 14:26: The Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.
John 16:13: However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.
Acts 1:8: You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me … to the end of the earth.
Luke 4:18: The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me … He has anointed Me to preach the gospel.
Galatians 5:22-23: The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.
To be filled with the Holy Spirit, simply ask:
Luke 11:9-13: So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. If a son asks for bread from any father among you, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish? Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!
