Evangelism is not a complicated or mystical activity that only a few people can figure out or are qualified to do. When I teach workshops on evangelism, one of my frequent statements is: “Today I want to demystify evangelism”. Many take a minute to as they figure out that I am saying that ALL followers of Christ are called to win souls and it’s not complicated.
Every day, I try to have a conversation with someone that does one of the following two things:
- Have a conversation with someone to help them become a follower of Jesus.
The reason I have these conversations is simple. First, God wants all people to be saved (2 Peter 3:9) by coming to a saving knowledge of Christ.
4 who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. 1 Tim. 2:4
This let’s me know that when I share the gospel, I have God’s approval and His Power behind me!
- Have a conversation with someone to encourage them to raise up other soul winners.
18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. 20 We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. 2 Cor. 5:18-20
All Christ followers are meant to be soul winners, so when I help others become soul winners, I am doing God’s Will. It’s not complicated.
One of my joys is constantly seeing people be amazed at how God uses them to win souls. You can tell they have tapped into one of their life’s purpose and they discovered that it is not complicated or difficult. After they made the decision to win souls, it became easy.
If you would like to grow in your ability to help people connect with Jesus, I invite you to visit my blog often. Also if you want to get more on this topic, I invite you to read my book Let Your Voice Be Heard and let God raise you up as a soul winner!
