Evangelism Part Four: How To Evangelize

This entry will be the last (or at least I think it will be the last), entry in the Evangelism series. As I mentioned in the original entry, I am writing this as I learn how to evangelize.

Because of this, today is going to be more a video-based post.

Here are some how to evangelize videos.

First…

Next…

This video I found interesting it is a full hour interview, the video focuses mostly on “reaping”…

To dig really deep in this, here is a three part series from Paul Washer on Evangelism.

Part 1…

Part 2…

Part 3…

Remember God loves you and wants to use you for this. I know it can be scary so here is one last video, it is how to deal with fear and anxiety when it comes to Evangelism…

Now go, be bold and brave. I will pray for you and please pray for me.

Have a Blessed Week,
Chris

Also, I would highly recommend you reading Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis. I recently read this and it was wonderful. I am leaving a link to the book on Amazon but you can always check your local library to see if they have a copy as well.

Evangelism Part Three: The Christian’s Motivation

There is a question about Evangelism that should be addressed before we move forward. 

The question is, what is the motivation for Christians to evangelize?

There of course is many but to me there is three important motivations.

First and foremost, we are told by God to do so. We are called to preach the Gospel to all nations.

Second since we have established before that salvation comes through faith alone we must tell this to people.

No other “god” can save them, no good works, it doesn’t matter if you think you’re a good person. The only way to the Father is through Jesus Christ. The only way to be saved is through faith in God.

We as Christians know this so we must be motivated to urgently spread the Gospel. We must have a desire for others to be saved not just ourselves. So spread the Gospel no matter what. It will take sacrifice and dedication. You may lose friends, loved ones, money, pleasures, you may even risk your life but it is what we must do.

Think of it this way, if you were in a burning building and managed to escape and you knew it was the only way. It would be cruel to just walk away from the building and be content with yourself being saved. You  need to do everything in your power to show those in the building how to be saved from the fire. Some may resist, some may not believe you, some may attack you but in the end you have to try and get them out of the flames.

But evangelism is more urgent than a burning building that could kill your body. Eternity is on the line! Stay motivated.

Finally we pray that God’s Kingdom will come on Earth as it is in Heaven, well we must be the Kingdoms representatives on Earth in order to assist in bringing His Kingdom to Earth. 

He doesn’t need us to but He wants us to. He is our Lord, He is our King, He is our God.

So we must do what our Lord says.

Have a Blessed Week,

Chris

Evangelism Part Two: Why Evangelism Is So Important

As we all know or at least hear Evangelism is very important. Today I am going to discuss why that is.

First and foremost, salvation comes through faith alone so it is our job to play our part in bringing the Gospel to the unbeliever.

No man can save themselves it is only Jesus Christ who saves, therefore we must we show this to the world.

No good deeds, no personality traits or even moral beliefs can save you.

Someone can believe that all the things God tells us is righteous is good and they can believe all things that are wicked to be wrong but if they don’t believe in God then they’re just as hell bound as anyone else.  

But some might ask why even bother? Can’t God just save who He wants to save?

The answer is simple because it is a direct order from God Himself.

Even if you’re a Five Point Calvinist you would point this out. It is what we are called to do.

So there can be no debate about the importance of Evangelism.  

Have a Blessed Week,
Chris

Evangelism Part One: The Gospel By Paul Washer

I have been thinking a lot about evangelism and it’s importance. How in reality it is the most important thing we can do on this Earth. We must spread The Gospel, it is our mission and nothing else matters unless we do. Truth is I struggle to spread The Gospel, I do so by writing but I find it hard to do so in person. Recently I was blessed to a be given the opportunity to present The Gospel to my best friend from High School. It was an amazing opportunity and I thank God for that.

The importance of Evangelism and my own need to learn about evangelism is why I am going to start a series on Evangelism that hopefully will answer some questions.

Now out the gate we may want to ask how? But first let’s answer the question what is The Gospel?

Here is a brilliant explanation by Paul Washer.

I hope this series will not only help me but those who read this as well.

Have a Blessed Week,
Chris
