Enjoy it, share it, but most of all, thank you for listening and choosing the Truth Podcast Network. This is the Truth Network. Welcome to Share the Truth, the last segment of Truth Talk with Stu Epperson.

Each week, we'll challenge you to go out and share the good news of Jesus Christ. is up and ready for you to share your own Jesus story. That's and order Share the Truth cards. That's Here's your host, Stu Epperson, with special co-host, Jess Conners, a man passionate about spreading the gospel to the ends of the earth. It's time to share the truth.

When is the last time you shared the truth with someone else? That's a great question, and that is the name of this news segment at the end of Truth Talk. We're transitioning out of Experience Truth. Probably we'll bring that back some way, someday, in some variation of that, but we are now a program, our last segment's called Share the Truth. I'm Stu Epperson, and I have a co-host.

His name is Jesse Conners. He loves Jesus, and he's excited about sharing the truth, right, Jesse? I sure am. I've been excited about sharing Jesus since I was a little boy, and it's an honor to be here. We've worked really hard to be ready for this show. We've been so busy trying to be prepared to actually go to the audience with tools that I know are going to start a revival.

Amen. What you're hearing now on National Radio Truth Talk, and thank you to all of our amazing affiliates that are brave enough to carry this program, you're also seeing on our website, connected with, and all that they're doing to encourage people to share the good news of Jesus Christ. So, what we're going to do today is tell you what in the world's going on here. Stu, what are you talking about? Are you off your rock, or are you losing your marbles? What is Share the Truth, and what about this new

Why is it important, Jesse? You know, we hear about the Asbury revival. We hear about the other great awakenings. This movie by Greg Laurie that came out, The Jesus Revolution, which I saw with tears flowing down my cheeks as I'm watching hippies. I mean, does God save hippies? My favorite quote from that movie, by the way, was the shocking part of all this is hippies are getting saved, and what's amazing about that is hippies don't ever get saved.

We've written them off, but that's the power of God's amazing grace. And that whole movie, The Jesus Revolution, which made me uncomfortable, because one of these odd-looking oddballs came to my church. I'm like, wait a second, maybe you guys can sit over there. Maybe we can have a different meeting for you.

Y'all can come tonight, and we just won't be here. You know, this isn't a disco parlor. This is a church. But God was moving in the 70s, and of course, there were cultish variations, and there were people that went too extreme on the chaos and the, you know, maybe some of the hyper charismatic stuff. But man, the Spirit of God was moving. People were coming to know Christ as their Savior.

And here's a brilliant question that's convicting, Jesse, and I'm not asking this with any legalistic tone whatsoever. I'm not asking this to shame anyone, because I'm talking to myself. When's the last time you or when's the last time Stu led someone to Jesus? Wow.

And that was just a few months ago for me and other attempts that didn't work. But we're actually mobilizing people to get out there and be comfortable with evangelism. That's the whole point of what has been doing over the years. And we've actually merged together finally. I've known Stu for around almost 20 years now. And is a product of prayer that me and Stu have been cultivating in our heart.

Just wondering how in the world is this going to actually mobilize an army and we actually were able now with the technology that you're gonna be learning about in this show, we're able to do that. So I have talked personally probably to 20,000 to 25,000 pastors. I have a very keen understanding of where we're at in the church body. And there's nothing I think that's more revealing than the LifeWay research study that came out in 2022 that taught us that 73% of unbelievers are willing to talk to a stranger about Jesus. But less than 1% of Christians are willing to talk to a stranger about Jesus. So there's a breakdown there. We're really not inviting people to church anymore because that's like kind of old-fashioned. But like what's wrong with that?

I know so many people that have come to know Christ at church. So we're going to make it very simple for everyone. Remember the KISS method, which I have trademarked, Keep It Simple, Stu. We have got a tool.

You're going to love this tool. It's a little card. We're going to flash this card on the screen.

We're going to put it at the website. You can order this card. And the card is free.

It's got two sides. Yep, we'll send it to you for free as long as our donors continue to support us. Well, listen, as God leads you, as you're able, anything you want to give to is going to go toward printing more cards, reaching more folks with the Gospel, creating more cool videos.

But this guy, my friend Jesse Connors, has compiled dozens of, hundreds of, maybe even thousands of videos. And on the back of this card, it's really cool, you hand it to someone that doesn't know Christ or you don't know where they stand. And there's little boxes. And you'll see, we'll put it up there.

You can see it and go to the website. And it says, abortion, sexuality, Bible, cults, Mormonism, abuse, evolution. I mean, all kinds of topics that are really hot topics that have led to a lot of divisive arguments and stuff like that. But we want each of these topics to get us into the Gospel, because people are struggling with depression. People are struggling with issues related to sexuality. What about divorce?

What about so many people that are battling with marriage issues? So every one of these questions and the goal of Share The Truth, this new segment, The End of Truth Talk Every Day, the goal of this TV, video, YouTube, visual broadcast, a couple with a podcast, a couple with the audio part on radio and on podcast. The goal of this is to connect every one of these hot potatoes in our culture and hot topics and issues, be it political, be it financial, be it economical, be it the wars going on, be it related to sickness and all the stuff that we face with a pandemic. We're connecting all that to Jesus.

We are. And I also want to just emphasize that these are the topics that make us fearful to share our faith with people. So when you have this card in your hand, all those fears just melt away because you're able to give this card to that person. If they say they hand you something, you say, hey, I want you to know that God loves you.

Here's an invitation to a wonderful website that shares that he loves you in a powerful way. You know, if they're a Mormon, there's actually a video. And I know we have a listening audience in Utah.

I want, I want them to especially hear this. There's a video that has three different people on it. And you learn at the end that they're all former Mormons. There's a narrator and two experts and they all share this information. And that information is what actually, what personally converted them. There's this emotional, intellectual synergy at the end of the video. It's not just that video too.

It's every one of our videos. We built this so the unbeliever can hear in a beautiful way what they need to hear to come to know Christ, because we thought about, you know, if we're going to love others the way we want to be loved. If I was a Mormon, what would I want to hear? If I was an atheist, what would I want to hear? If I was a Jehovah's witness, what would I want?

I mean, on and on and on. So now we have this in this card. And all you can do is just, even if you're scared, is just say, man, Lord, I pray that I'll receive power right now that I can hand this card to whoever hands me something first. That's Acts 1 8. I want to receive power, power, the Holy Spirit's power, not our power, not on our strength.

It's not. We want to be the vessels that God's called us to be. And we can't do that unless if we have the Holy Spirit in our lives.

So we will receive power and then we'll be His witnesses. And then you just say, Lord, I want to be able to do this. I want to be able to hand this card to somebody. And right there, my friend, you're going to hand that card to that person at that right time. You know, I'm reminded of Philip as he's talking to the Ethiopian eunuch.

You know, he comes up right at that moment and he's, and he's like, Hey, he's saying exactly what he needs to say in order to talk to that eunuch. Well, John 14, the Holy Spirit will guide you that day, what to say. And in the power you're talking about, Romans 1 16, Paul says, I'm not ashamed of the gospel. It is the power of God in salvation.

So the power comes from another source, the Holy Spirit of God through the gospel. And these share the truth cards that everyone's going to order gazillions of. Give them out everywhere you go. Give them to believers to give to unbelievers. Give them to unbelievers to share with their unbeliever friends. You can take, it's in the QR code.

You can take a QR and watch this video. You could share your Jesus story. The bottom line is God's not mad at you. God's mad about you.

He made you. All we are doing at The show we're in is share the truth. The website is equipping you, your church, your small group to just take a little, print a little card. And ultimately we want you to take your phone, turn it to selfie, create a 60 to two minute video.

Right. Your Jesus story. How easy is this? If you go to true, you go to Just keep it simple. Go to

Scroll down. You'll see a ton of options for you to share your faith. And one of them is the Jesus story challenge and the Jesus story challenge allows you to give a short testimony. And then your video, your testimony sits on top of all the videos we just got done describing.

And you even get your own URL that you can share on social media. This is really the pathway for evangelism. I want to emphasize one more time.

As I talked about the Philip in Ethiopian, eunuch unity. I've had this happen and you've had this happen where in a supernatural way, we're right there at the right time with the right message. And we're literally seeing people praying that God will help them.

And they're an atheist. And then we come in at that very moment with the card in our hand to say, Jesus loves you. That is a type of interaction that we're talking about. That's the type of interaction that God wants you to be a part of.

That's the type of interaction that we want each other to be a part of, to hold each other accountable to that. And that is how we're going to have a real revival and take this Asbury revival flare to the whole world. It's by us standing up, you know, in revelations 12, 11, it says that we will overcome by the blood of the lamb and the power of our testimony will no longer be afraid to die stew. We will overcome by the power of our testimony. We will no longer be afraid to die. We are not sharing our testimony. Right.

As much as we should, no wonder we're living in fear. We need to be out there and we need to say with the power of the Holy Spirit, I am more than a conqueror. And like you just said, we can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. That reminds me, there's also on, there's a free evangelism book called Evangelism Bootcamp.

You can download that right now. I've read that book. It's eighth grade verbiage. And you can know right now what to say to an atheist, Mormon, Jehovah Witness, Muslim, whatever you want and how to beat the Holy Spirit into your heart. So you can go out and jump over those hurdles that you're going to face. Parents give this to your kids going to college. When you're sharing your faith.

And this is, this is make it really simple. You still get to order your favorite burger off the menu. You still get to get your favorite side entree.

If you're vegan, get whatever you want. Get your beverage. But what this does, this little share the truth card, all it does is this. When you're done with your meal, you've left a nice tip for your server, your waiter, your waitress.

Okay. This is very important. You have a testimony and they're very busy.

They're waiting on a ton of tables and they're supporting their family. You have a little card to give them and you say, ma'am, sir, I want to give you this card. I've left you a good tip. Just go. When you get home and you've sorted through everything, pull your phone out.

When you get home, take a little picture of this and there's a video. And that video is hi, I'm Stu. This is what Jesus did in my life. Our generic card that we're giving out has Stu sharing the Gospel on top of the video, on top of the website. So you're going to get the Gospel presentation in their hands. I want to emphasize this guys.

It is the waitresses, but it's also the person standing across from you at the gas station. Just say, Hey man, God loves you. I wanted to give you this.

Just pray for the power of the cash register. Just anyone around you. God told us to go to strangers.

This is my last point. The life way research study says 73% of, of unbelievers are willing to talk to a stranger about Jesus. Remember that my friends, we need to ask the Holy Spirit to give us the power to talk to strangers.

God, listen to this. Jesus came and worked with strangers, his entire ministry. He hardly ever, I don't even know if there's an example of him building a relationship with somebody first. Jesus talked to Zacchaeus. They were in his house at night.

The woman at the well. But he truly loved people. He truly loved people. And he did a lot of bridge building, but the bottom line is he got to the point.

He got to the point and he is the point. And we got to get people to him because only he can change your life. We're going to come back next time and we're going to keep this going and talk more about how you can share the truth.

Go there now. Get a bunch of cards and let's share the truth. There are also a QR code for how they can find their favorite truth station.

So they can hear and be built up on the Word of God and on mission-driven programs. God bless you. Keep sharing the truth. This is the Truth Network.
