August 14, 2005: During home group (our weekly Bible study with a handful of other families) this week we were discussing how effective we are at leading others to Christ, especially sharing with those who do not want anything to do with Jesus. A good friend recounted a story about CPR and sharing the Gospel. Telling someone about salvation is a lot like CPR, she said. When you get to the point where you have to administer CPR, that person is technically already dead. You can't do anything to hurt them, and in fact, what you do may save them. So when you share the Gospel to someone who is void of Jesus, they ARE TECHNICALLY DEAD. Telling them about Jesus can only give them life.

Sharing God's Word is like a spiritual CPR.

Just something on which to chew, I thought.
