Be Prayerful. Pray for open doors and open hearts and for the words to say (Col. 4:2-6).
Be Purposeful. Your goal is not to make decisions but to make disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, teaching them to observe everything He has commanded (Mat. 28:19-20).
Be Gentle and Compassionate. Avoid quarreling and arguing. Be kind and courteous. There are times to share and times to listen. People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care (Mark 6:34, Titus 3:2, 2 Tim. 2:24-26).
Be Patient and Loving. Be ready to invest time as you make disciples and share the love of God. Your love for Christ and your love for the lost will motivate and encourage you to be a faithful witness (1 Cor. 13:4).
Be Specific. Your mission is to tell people how the Lord Jesus Christ can save them from the power, punishment and ultimately, the presence of sin (1 Pet. 2:24; 1 John 1:7).
Be Persuasive and Passionate. You are sharing the greatest news they will ever hear about the greatest gift they could ever receive from the greatest Man who ever lived. Implore them on behalf of Christ to make a volitional response to the Gospel (2 Cor. 5:11, 20).
Be Bold. Warn people who reject Christ and the Gospel that God's wrath will be their punishment and hell will be their prison with no escape (2 Thes. 1:5-10).
Be Christ-like. God gave us the ministry of reconciliation and we are ambassadors for Christ such that God is making His appeal through us (2 Cor. 5:18-20).
