Evangemissions

Summary:

1. Christians must engage in personal evangelism at home and evangelistic missions abroad, demonstrating a genuine love for God and all people.

2. Christians must be passionate in being present in the lives of lost people, ministering to them at their point of material and spiritual need.

3. Christians must verbally and persuasively proclaim Jesus in the power of the Holy Spirit.

4. Christians must leave the results to God, resting assured in His promises that our labor is not in vain and that His Word will not return void!

Yes, the summary is up front this month, hoping you will not give up before you get to it.  Even if you don’t go on, you’ve already been exposed to the truth of evangelism & missions – now the article 😊

The mission of the church is simple: Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you (Matthew 28:19-20)).

Jesus expects every follower to be involved in making disciples of all the nations. The Gospel must be preached to the poor, to the privileged, to the prisoners, to the proud, and to people who have never heard the Good News of Jesus Christ. The command is clear—all peoples.

Many people believe that preaching of the Gospel is reserved for those who have been called as professional ministers in the church. Preaching does not just mean standing behind the pulpit or in front of a big crowd of people.

In the New Testament, the word “to preach” is one of the root words for evangelism (Luke 4:8). Every believer is to proclaim Christ in order to evangelize the sinner (2 Corinthians 5:18-20). Such proclamation comes from a heart of love (2 Corinthians 5:14).

God is love (1 John 4:7); and love is of God (1 John 4:8). It was love that prompted God’s only Son to die for men and women to receive eternal life. The Christ-follower should be known by how well the fruit of love is displayed toward others (Galatians 5:22) Nowhere is this love more apparent than when we share the Good News of Jesus with those who are lost. Such love for God and for others is a sign of the power of the Holy Spirit working in the life of a Christian.

Evangelism is sharing our salvation testimony and letting others know that Jesus died for them, too. Evangelism is the beginning point of making a disciple. Discipleship is more than merely membership with names on the church’s roster, though membership in a local church is important for fellowship. Jesus Christ did not say go and make members, but rather go and make disciples of all the nations. Disciples are followers and imitators of the Lord Jesus Christ. They are those who are willing to obey His commandments.  Are we among them?  I pray that we are!
