Evangelism

 

 

Proverbs 24:11.12

Rescue those being led away to death;

   hold back those staggering toward slaughter.  

If you say, “But we knew nothing about this,”

   does not he who weighs the heart perceive it?

Does not he who guards your life know it?

   Will he not repay everyone according to what they have done?

 

Churches diminish and die without evangelism. Most churches are very organised and have people involved in making the tea, cleaning, building maintenance, raising money, etc..

 

Many churches/christians give money to missions abroad but do nothing themselves.

 

What is your church doing about evangelism locally?

 

Christians need to be encouraged, enabled and taught how to evangelise. It can be fun and very uplifting. Breaking free from feeling shy and awkward about our faith is liberating.

 

For instance. Buy some tracts. Place one through a letter box or leave on a seat at the doctor’s surgery, or on the bus, etc.. Pray about it. You will have done something. You did not have to speak to anyone. You feel good.

 

For instance. Always be prepared to share with someone who is troubled that when you are troubled, your faith is a great help.

 

Leaders!! Why not get together and create a course for evangelism teaching people all the gentle ways to evangelise. Not everyone can stand on the street, or knock on doors and evangelise, but people can be encouraged to befriend and gently introduce someone to Jesus.

 

Evangelism is a blessing.
