of the Gospel

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.

Romans 1:16 (ESV)

Do vs Done

Several referenced examples of the "Do vs Done" method come from the book Becoming a Contagious Christian by Bill Hybels and Mark Mittelberg.  I am unclear whether they originated this approach or simply referenced it. 

The Cliff Notes Version: If we have to rely on what we do for salvation, we are doomed to failure.  We need to rely on what Christ has already done.

A word of warning: the Cliff Notes version leaves out a lot of details and so do other references.  So you need to be prepared to fill in some of the blanks.  Unless you flesh this method out with your own script, I see it more as a tool to use in conjunction with another method. 

  • Using Do versus Done - This includes a very brief script taken from the above mentioned book, but points out the sort of stuff you will need to fill in.

  • Do or Done? - This takes Do vs Done, revamps it a bit and kind of merges it with something like The Bridge.  

Here is a short video on how to present Do vs Done.

This is not a "how to" video, but a pretty good presentation of "Religion Says Do, Jesus Says Done."  This is far more complete than the bare bones quickie presentations referenced above.  This is a good video to show directly to someone.
