Being too "wordy" can negate a witness. Christians need to speak the essence of the gospel message to get quickly to the point, then they can qualify it thereafter as time permits. Here are a few verses to consider:
> God is holy (Psa.145:17), and no sin can come into His presence (Hab.1:13);
> Man is born in sin so needs a new (spiritual) birth (Psa. 51:5; John 3; Rom.3; Rom. 5:12; Rom.10), and he must realize that and confess it (Lev.10:10; I Cor. 2:14; Eph. 2:3);
> Christ died for the ungodly (Rom.5: 6-8) and rose again (I Cor. 15: 3-4);
> If one truly believes on the Lord Jesus Christ he shall be saved from all sin (Acts 16: 27-34; Heb.10:17-23);
> There is no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus (Rom.8:1);
> He that possesses the Son of God is sealed and now possesses eternal life (John 3:16, 36; I John 5: 11-13).
Isn't this nice to know? Does the reader here know God's Son---the Lord Jesus Christ? (John 17:3).
