Faith Life

The Four Rs

I know I’ve been posting a lot more frequently lately but Jesus and the Holy Spirit are so good and I just feel so compelled to share.

I am rewatching a Virtual Bible Study (VBS) with Blessed is She and they discussed an easy way to share the Gospel, the 4 Rs. Below is an incredible (and simple) way explained by Beth Davis to share and understand the Good News of the Gospel.

  1. Relationship – We were created to be in an unbroken relationship with God the Father.
  2. Rupture – We ruptured that relationship through sin. Adam and Eve were cast out of the garden and we rupture our personal relationship with the Lord through sin every day.
  3. Restore – Jesus came to the Earth to restore that relationship with the Father by dying on a cross for you, for me, for us.
  4. Respond (or Recieve) – We have to respond by receiving that sacrifice. We receive His life for our life and we give Him our lives in response to that sacrifice.

Here is the full video (with some cool hand motions)! The conversation begins around 29:30

It may not seem like it but I’m always so terrified to share my faith because for so long I felt ashamed and was made fun of it for it. Praise the Lord that He has put so many supportive and amazing people in my life now. And just looking back at my life, I just fully see God’s hand in it because nothing in my life is the same since encountering the personal love of God. I’ve changed so much since going to college and so much of it for the better because of Jesus Christ and the gift of the Holy Spirit.

I can be afraid to share but God is just too good and I can’t hold it in any longer. The world is filled with so much uncertainty and hopelessness right now, fill yourself with some joy and hope! If you are curious or want to start or rekindle your relationship with Jesus Christ please reach out to me! I’d love to video call you (during quarantine) or buy you a coffee (post quarantine). Friends, He can and will change your life the same way he changed mine.
