Here in Acts 13:16-43 Paul gives us a good pattern of how to share the Gospel. He rehearses a short history of Israel, all that God did for them, how He brought Jesus to them as a Savior from the seed of David. How John the Baptist came and testified of who Jesus is and warned people to repent, yet they ended up crucifying Jesus, and how His resurrection from the dead proved He was God. He then gave testimony of how He was seen by many witnesses for many days and that He is the one in whom all sins can be forgiven. He then gave an invitation to believe warning them of the things that the prophets had spoken of that would come upon them if they did not believe. Let us ask God to give us an opportunity to tell someone the Good News of Jesus Christ today and be faithful when we get the opportunity to share Him.
