Good Morning!

WANT TO WIN YOUR FRIENDS TO CHRIST?

Here's a simple but effective approach:

Christ called us to be "Fishers of men" (Matthew 4:19). And in order to fish, we need a "N - E - T."

N = Nerve ending: Identify the area of pain in their life - the "nerve ending".

E = Empathize as best you can with their pain.

T = Teach them how Christ can heal their pain.

And what are the "nerve endings" in people's lives these days? Well, according to The Barna Research Group:

FINANCIAL - 39%

JOB - RELATED - 16%

PERSONAL HEALTH - 12%

TIME AND STRESS - 8%

PARENTING - 7%

EDUCATIONAL ATTAINMENT - 6%

FEAR OF CRIME - 3%

PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS - 3%

Key Scriptures on:

Finances: Deuteronomy 8; Matthew 6:19 - 33; Philippians 4:12, 13, 19; I Timothy 6:6 - 10, 17 - 19; Hebrews 13:5

Job: Proverbs 10:4; 12:11, 24, 27; 13:4, 11, 23; Ecclesiastics 5:18 - 20; Ephesians 4:28; I Thessalonians 4:11, 12; II Thessalonians 3:6 - 15

Happy fishing!
