You never know where you might be when God calls on you to present the gospel. Scripture tells us to be ready and willing at all times to spread the good news. Here is a simple way to illustrate the gospel message using a pen and a napkin.salvation message

Materials: Pen, blank napkinsalvation message 1

Ever since creation there has been GOD and MAN.salvation message 2

But there is a division, or a chasm, between the two.salvation message 3

What are some characteristics of GOD?salvation message 4

What are some characteristics of MAN?salvation message 5

Because MAN is sinful and imperfect, MAN cannot have a relationship with GOD. GOD is holy and perfect. Holiness cannot look upon sin. [You could write the words HELL and DEATH at the bottom under SIN and mention that a broken relationship with GOD means judgement, eternal separation, and death.]salvation message 6

MAN can try to cross the chasm himself by doing good works, going to church, or being a good person. But the Bible says that whatever MAN might try to do as righteousness, it is as filthy rags. MAN cannot cross the divide in his own power.salvation message 7

GOD loves His creation so much that He sent His Son, Jesus, to this earth. Because Jesus is GOD, He has the same characteristics as GOD.salvation message 8

Jesus, pure, sinless and without blame, died on the cross knowing that He would take MAN’S sins upon Himself. He, then, became a bridge across the chasm.salvation message 9

But MAN still has to do his part. MAN must have faith and believe that Jesus died and rose again. The scriptures say, “Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved.”salvation message 10

To “be saved” means to have a restored relationship with GOD. And it is worth sharing with others. “Whoever believes in [Jesus] will not perish, but have everlasting life.” “Confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and you will be saved.”salvation message 11

May the Lord be praised from the mountains and the valleys!

May His name be extolled throughout the heavens!

If His people are silent, then the rocks will cry out.

May God bless your efforts as you tell others about Jesus!!
