People do not trust Christ as their Saviour by reading our critiques of evangelism strategies.
Nor do they get saved in response to discussions about our busy schedules.
They don’t even respond to the Gospel through our clearly articulated articles and blogs on the issues or preferences we have in relation to other ministries’ issues or preferences.
This may surprise you…but people trust Christ as their Saviour when we personally share the Gospel with them.
How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?—Romans 10:14
Soulwinning and evangelism are discussed frequently, but I find that they are practiced infrequently. Today, people like to philosophize and theorize on why it is important and how it should be done and how others are doing it wrong. But we need to get back to the main thing—the central mission of the church—and personally share the Gospel with those who do not know Christ.
The first word of Christ’s Great Commission is an important one—“Go.”
If we neglect to go, there will be some who will never hear the Gospel, and we will be in direct disobedience to Jesus Christ.
Who can you witness to this week? And when will you do it?
