No Doubt About It

Why is it that 95% of all Christians have never led someone to salvation through Christ?

Why is it that committed followers of Jesus do not regularly speak to others of their faith in Christ alone for salvation?

Why is it that I can read verses like:

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, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen (Matthew 28:19-20)

And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. (Mark 16:15)

But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear (1 Peter 3:15)

 . . . and still not be moved to tell others of salvation through Jesus Christ?

Something is wrong.

This Sunday, February 6, we will be looking at the Biblical teaching to evangelize the lost.

"Evangelize" = to announce news; to announce the good news (Gospel) of Jesus Christ

There is no doubt about it. Jesus Christ came to save people from their sins. I am saved from my sins through Jesus.

BUT - there is also no doubt about the fact that I'm told, as a follower of Jesus, I must be an "evangelist" who announces the good news of salvation through Jesus.

There is no doubt about it!!!

My prayer is that this Sunday, God's Word and God's Spirit will convict and motivate us all (myself included) to be more passionate and more active in sharing our faith. Friends, if you have been born again, you have a story to tell!

So, why don't we evangelize? I will talk about two reasons we lack the effort to evangelize:
A. Fear - I'm afraid I won't have an answer for their question.
B. Ignorance - I don't know how to.

I encourage you to come out this Sunday at 9am or 10:30am to hear this message on keys to better evangelism.

I need a message like this and maybe you do too.

See you Sunday,
Pastor Paul

P.S. We will have a special drama as part of the morning service that will illustrate for us how to share your faith. You won't want to miss this!!!
