Maintaining Your Spiritual Edge (Part 10)
Preacher: Pastor Joe Ricchuiti | Series: Maintaining Your Spiritual Edge
1. To be ready to give an answer to everyone who asks the reason for the hope we have in Christ we need a ready plan to share the gospel.
2. Robert Foster in Essentials of Discipleship cites the following advantages of having a ready plan:
– “It enables you to be prepared at all times to witness.”
-“It enables you to go through a biblical presentation point by point without leaving anything out.”
-“It serves as a set of tracks that provide direction.” It helps to “avoid rabbit trails or tangents.”

Three plans are: The Roman Road (all verses from Romans which establish the gospel: Romans 3:23; 6:23; 5:8; 10:9,10 – covers sin, death, Christ’s death for sin, and our response in believing); the Bridge Illustration (see Navigators 2:7; Robert Foster, Essentials of Discipleship; or go to www:navigators.org, click “Search” and type in “bridge.pdf’); or use a gospel tract.
