Evangelism

     Evangelism, e-van-ge-lism (noun)…The spreading of the Christian gospel by public preaching or personal witness – zealous advocacy of a cause.

     I Samuel 17:29, And David said, “What have I done now? Is there not a cause?”

     Evangelism, no ministry in the church is more vital. Evangelism involves several key actions telling the good news, announcing the Kingdom (reign) of God, and bearing witness.

     We were reminded last week of the 40 days after the resurrection of Jesus He spent a lot of time exhorting the apostles to go out and win the lost. He gave the great commission before His ascension in Matthew 28:19, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”

     This was one of His final commands and I am confident this is what He would have his church engaged in. Every believer can be a soul winner even if we have to just give a cup of cool water in His name.

     The first thing we must do is to pray God will put upon our hearts to be active in his harvest. Most Christians want to win souls but many have been led to think they can’t because they feel unqualified. Our church is making plans as to how all can be trained and equipped.

     Start today asking God in earnest prayer to give you a heart for the lost. We must have desire before we can accomplish anything. We begin today but we also are planning some classes with Evangelist Mario Murillo will be announcing in our May 21st. In a city that is less than 5% churched just about everyone you run into needs to hear the message. Be ye prepared.
