How to show others a clear picture of Jesus
February 27, 2013
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.
2 Timothy 2:15
Years ago, my family and I lived in West Palm Beach, Florida. There’s a fairly large Jewish population in that city, and one day I was sharing about Christ with a very intelligent Jewish girl from New York City.
In her home, she told me, she wasn’t allowed to mention the name of Jesus because it represented to them many of the anti-Semitic attitudes that had been projected toward them over the years by so-called Christians. They associated Jesus with Christians, who obviously didn’t like them. So they never mentioned His name.
I could tell she was uncomfortable just talking about Jesus. So I told her, “You know, Jesus was a Jew.” She had never heard that once in her life. I continued, “He grew up memorizing the Torah, would’ve gone to synagogue every Saturday, and observed every single law in the Books of Moses.” From that point forward, she at least heard me out instead of shutting me down.
When we’re informed about the Bible, we can help open people’s eyes up to what it really says and help overcome the problem of ignorance. So know God’s Word and help others know it, too. When you’re well informed, you’re much more likely to find a listening ear when you share Christ with others!
GIVE THE LOST A CLEAR PICTURE OF JESUS BY KNOWING GOD’S WORD AND HELPING OTHERS KNOW IT, TOO!

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013
While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.
That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.
This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”
The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.
