Don’t explain the gospel proclaim the Gospel. Explaining is is giving them a head knowledge by making it sound cool and acceptable. Jesus asks you to proclaim it proclam means announce and when you announce something you give the facts the bare facts, and that is Jesus died for you , and The holy spirit will do the rest. Someone could witness to someone and tell them the gospel an they would walk away with a head knowledge, when David Wilkerson spoke to nikki cruz the 3 words that haunted him day and night in his spirit was Jesus loves you.
