I Am an Evangelist
Read: 2 Corinthians 5:20
This week in Daily Devotionals we are going to look at evangelism in scripture! We are asking God to save 3,000 people at NewSpring Church, and all of us are going to have to move out of our comfort zone to see this happen. As you pray through the Pray for 3k guide and read devotionals about evangelism, think about who YOU should invite to church this weekend.
2 Corinthians 5:20
When people talk about evangelists, I envision television preachers with bad hair shouting and waving a Bible in the air. In the rural Southern Baptist church where I grew up, we would “evangelize” by passing out tracts and asking people, “If you were to die today, do you know where your soul would go?” That was the way an evangelist dressed and acted. As I look back, I think we did more harm than good.
Now that I’m older, and hopefully wiser, I see evangelism in a whole new light. All believers are evangelists! It’s our job to tell people what Jesus has done for us, what he is doing for us and what He will do for us. Each of us has a story to share. As you pray today, ask God who He wants you to share this good news with. Ask for the words to say, and pray for that person come to Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
