(John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.)
SURE GLORY THROUGH EVANGELISM
What is EVANGELISM?
Evangelism is the process of preaching the word of God, living an examplary life style and out look. Converting sinners to repentance and also winning souls to Christ.
(It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that i speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. kJV)
WHY ARE PEOPLE NOT ADDICTED OR ENGAGED TO EVANGELISM?
You Can’t Give What You Don’t Have: As a matter of fact, have you ever seen someone teaching his or her neighbor how to drive a car when he or she haven’t learn how to drive?.you can’t preach the gospel to people when you don’t have the word in you. You can’t go out for evangelism when your heart is not in Christ Jesus. You can’t teach the Bible when you don’t no the Bible. The first and best thing to do is to seek for God Grace and Wisdom to know His word before going for evangelism.
Pride And Social Status: When you have nothing to talk of, you Preached the Gospel with all your strength, Focus, Ability and Capacity even without Seasons, You Evangelize with any little opportunity you have, either in the classroom, your office, in traffic, inside vehicles. People know you as one of the best preacher in town. You even make a provision of handbills and tracks for distribution, you come out with different kinds of idea that attract people attention to Christ. When God saw your effort and bless you with some little material things like car or bike for easy life transformation and the message to be easy for you and the minister to go far beyond your location, it’s then you begin initiating some styles in your evangelism. You begin preaching with pride, making a references of what you have, quoting what you have to the people instead of bible, hiring people to do the job for you, tiredness will now become your daily song to sing forgotten that all that you have today is a gift from God. As a Good believer and Christian, you have to let go of all the materials thing and tell God you are here to serve Him. Let no pride showcase it self in you during your evangelism. Let people know who Christ really is and what He have to offer to the righteous one.
=Selfishness And Ignorant: Majority of people in our today’s world, God has so much blessed them with all they might ask of him, God bless them in all ramifications of life but the knowledge of extending their Grace to others is not there because they have that knowledge of greed and ignorant thinking back to when they were living in that stressful life in years back in the process of their evangelism, for those kind of people use the language of economics to secure their future wealth. Those classes of people never believe in miracles,they believe that when little is out of what they have, they can never recover it again. Therefore out of their ignorant and negligent they withhold their riches alone. For you to become a great evangelism there are some things you have to let go of and replace with a sacrificial mind because there is always a sacrifice after prayer. Give what you have for there is always a better blessing attached to it. Learn how to give and pray for our sacrifice to be acceptable to god almighty father.
Fear: In this recent world: People are no longer interested in evangelism again all because of fear. Some people are not courageous enough to go out for evangelism again because of the fear of their fellow human, They think of some side effect like gossip confrontation and embarrassment to occur during and after their evangelism. Some people evangelize by looking at some personalities, they have a selected people to talk to because of fear. When fear take over in anything you about to do, you can never do it right because fear will hijack that confidential space in you an this leads to caree destruction. First and foremost, before going out for evangelism you need to pray and seek for God’s face that God should take away any spirit of fear, side effect from you and also pray for god to take his place in the field of your evangelism and for the departure of spirit of fear. Let me tell you this.
There are so many way of doing evangelism without fear.
1: By your personal appearance.
2: By your Humanitarian services.
3: By the means of your approach in the society.
4: By your attitude and behavior.
All this are quality of a good evangelism, You can achieve all this by prayer. We need to pray hard for the Grace of fear departure. In all, while we are doing all this in truth and trust through Jesus Christ our lord, eternal Glory will be ours for life and the Grace to live evangelical life we ask through Christ our lord a men.
Yours, James Emmanuel
