Do I present the Gospel compellingly, compassionately, and clearly?

Do I water down the Truth or do I point to need for salvation?

Do I feel I would sense an urgency to repent if I heard the message I share?

     *1 Peter 3:8

     *Ephesians 4:32

     *Colossians 3:12

Do NOT Add To The Offense of The Gospel!
