Evangelism is not a skill or a role reserved for the chosen few. Every believer is called to always be ready to give a reason for the hope within them, with gentleness and respect (1 Peter 3:15). Every believer is called to go and make disciples (Matthew 28:16-20).
The answer is love. Love, for Jesus and others, is the reason to share Jesus. Think about it like this: What is the greatest thing that has ever happened to you? If the answer is knowing Christ personally, what then is the greatest thing you could do for someone else? Introduce them to Jesus.
But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness …. I Peter 3 vs 15
2,IT is alarming these days to see people go with the title “THE EVANGELIST ” and all they do is go to market place,enter transport services or just go about prophecing, conducting deliverance for people,after which they begin to call for seed sowing and begin to raise funds… that is evangelism..
Evangelism revolves around spreading God’s truth to others. Evangelists speak God’s word to other people. An evangelist is there to help people understand the Bible and who Jesus is and to help many come to Christ in faith. If one has an evangelist calling for spreading the “Good News” and leading people to Christ with the help of God. It is not a title for fund raising..
An evangelist is someone who proclaims good news; in other words, a preacher of the gospel or a missionary. The office of evangelist will be needed until the church reaches the maturity of Christ Himself (Ephesians 4:13). Good news is meant to be shared. And we have the best news of all—Jesus died and rose again and saves all who will call on Him (Romans 10:9–13).
Evangelism Is Not to Critique Other Religions, Other Churches or Other Church Leaders.
Evangelism is not to critique other religions, or other churches and their leaders. We don’t waste time sharing what we are not, but instead, spend our time sharing who Jesus is and what he has done for each and every one of us. Don’t waste the precious time that you have to talk about the King with talking instead about your views of other people and religions.
Some even go as far as condemning what they Wear e.g trousers, wigs,make up and sleeves cloths and emphazing on hell fire 🔥 if they don’t change… these are examples of bad evangelist practices.. failure to share the goodnews, distorting people, teaching false messages and presenting the good news of salvation as a mere opinion.
