Evangelism and the Faith

One of our mandates as Christians is to go into the world and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit – Mathew 28:19.  This is also known as the Great Commission. The Great Commission or evangelism is not only speaking to people about God but another way of doing that is through our actions and our words.  People should have a change of hearts by observing your actions.

As we know, we have been mandated to win souls and it is a fact that most of us shy away from this duty that has been bestowed on us. We shy away from this basically because we are afraid people will turn us away or they will not want to listen to what we have for them or they may ask us difficult questions that we may not have answers to.

Personally, I had never evangelized to anyone until it was added to a course I was reading at church. It was not as difficult as I had imagined it. The people I spoke to were much more receptive. Within an hour, we had spoken to over 15 people and we believed they were going to be saved.  I have taken part in three separate evangelism programmes in my church after I was able to break the first barrier.

I also believe in what the Bible says Romans 8:30 which says, “Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.”

You may not feel qualified to speak about the goodness of God with other people but bear in mind that God used Moses who stammered, Jeremiah, Gideon and others back in the day so if we avail ourselves, God is ready to use us. As my one of the teachers in my church puts it, “this is the work that brings the most blessing to us Christians.”

Have you taken it upon yourself to evangelize to people? How were you able to break the “silence” the first time? We want to hear what you have to say on Twitter and Facebook.
