Who's Your One?

June 13, 2019

I was listening in our local church’s equivalent of a Sunday School class this past Sunday to people telling their stories. One man made a profound, yet simple comment. He said, “I heard the gospel because I had a neighbor who befriended me, prayed for me and shared the gospel with me.”

This story is the hope behind “Who’s Your One?” “Who’s Your One?” is an evangelistic initiative by the North American Mission Board (NAMB) that encourages followers of Jesus to intentionally engage people in gospel conversations. The emphasis asks every believer to pray for and focus on one person. Following are a number of resources to assist and encourage followers of Jesus in this effort.

“Who’s Your One?” Resources and Kit
NAMB has a number of tools and resources available for individuals and churches to help you be on mission. Resources are available for download, or church leaders may request a complimentary kit from NAMB.

Bless Every Home
Bless Every Home is a tool to help believers be a light for Christ in their communities by praying for, caring for, sharing the gospel with and discipling your neighbors. The tool allows you to get to know your neighbors by name, pray for them and track your progress as you interact and follow-up with them.

Gospel Conversations Videos
There are numerous videos available that are designed to help believers be more competent and confident in communicating the gospel. They can be used by individuals or churches. We have some of those videos available on our website.

Gospel Conversations Training
Regional Gospel Conversations Trainings sponsored by the Baptist state convention provide opportunities for individuals to be equipped to share the gospel with confidence. Each training includes time for practice, follow-up and accountability. The training is also reproducible for local churches. The training calendar can be found at ncbaptist.org/gospelconversationstraining.

These tools can help equip people to communicate the hope of the gospel; but what they cannot do is compel people to love their neighbors. That must come from the Holy Spirit. Pray and ask God to give you a heart for your neighbors, to give you His heart for your neighbors. May the Lord write many more stories like the one I heard this past Sunday.
