#11 – Explaining Jesus to Others


I want to tell you about a funny question I received.

Someone asked me:
“How do I tell someone about Jesus, without sounding like a psycho?”

I laughed for a while, because I loved how he worded that. That IS a great question, isn’t it?

We want others to know God…to know his love, to be changed by his kindness and power, to have eternal life with God.

But, how do we do that?

Dr. Bill Bright was someone whose whole life was focused on helping others come to know Jesus. He used to say:

Our job is to simply tell others about Jesus, as we rely on the power of the Holy Spirit, and leave the results to God.

We don’t convince anyone. God already wants a relationship with them.

So, what’s our role?

I love this verse from the New Testament:

“And I pray that the sharing of your faith may promote the knowledge of all the good that is ours in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Philemon v6, rsv)

We get to share our faith in God. We get to tell people about all the *good* that comes from a relationship with Jesus.

How exactly do we go about that…again, without sounding like a psycho?! can really be a help here. Mention a Website or connect with someone online, and everyone’s good with that.

I once asked a group of college students, “How many of you get stressed out while on Facebook?” They just laughed.

The Internet is comfortable. Everyone is in control of what they read, who they connect with, what friends they stay in touch with. It has become second-nature to us.

This gives us an open door. can help people in their spiritual search for God. I would like to show you how.

To my knowledge, I’ve not ever seen an email series quite like this one.

I’d like to call it, “Talk about God, without sounding like a psycho.” But think I’ll go with a shorter version: “How to Talk about God.”

I honestly think that through this, you’ll discover an exciting, new dimension in your relationship with God.

Many people will likely begin a relationship with Jesus, as a result of your efforts. (I see it happen all the time!)

“How to Talk About God” gives you:

  • ways to have a comfortable, brief conversation about God.
  • creative, easy ideas to use on Facebook.
  • a personal page on, to share your story.
  • help in answering those difficult, spiritual questions.
  • how to help someone begin a relationship with God.
  • ways that you could reach an entire campus or city.

It’s free. Your email address will not be shared with anyone else. You can unsubscribe anytime.
