 Evangelizing

I believe that everybody must be trained in "how to witness." There is a right way and a wrong way of witnessing. An effective and a non-effective way of witnessing. Not all are called to be evangelists BUT ALL ARE called to evangelize the name of Jesus Christ. Now of course there are different ways of evangelize. This is what this thread should be discussing. So how do we evangelize to the world?

 Re: Evangelizing

One way is to get out there and do it, you learn a lot from your mistakes.

You also learn how little you know about the bible, how easily your faith can be shaken.

You learn humility and patience.

Then you get on the internet and download everything you can find to read and listen to.

Or you could do it the other way, you learn how to do it and then go out, but so many times people never go out, they pray for God to send people to them.

My advice; Get on your knees, not to ask if you should do it, but to ask for courage, a word compassion for the lost and passion for Jesus.

Then get reading your bible cos that's where wisdom comes from.

And make sure you're living the life you will meet workmates, old schoolfriends, neighbours, people who pick up their kids the same time as you, they'll spot a hypocryte if you are one.

Can I recommend Mark Cahill's teaching 'being a light in a dark world' it's excelent, find the wayofthemaster radio and listen to Todd Friel and Ray Comfort out on the streets.

There is a right way to do it and a wrong way but don't let that stop you, if your in a right relationship with God then put some trust in Him, he'll give you plenty of rejections to put you in your place, and encouragement to keep you going.

Listen to 'I got off at George Street' if you want to know what persistance is. People will ask what fruit you are getting but point out to them that the visible fruit is the change in you, not the amount of people who listen.

Also have a look at other threads on this site, there are a few now on this subject.

well we must know our bible, so we know what we talk about and as said down on our knees...
then start whit your family then your neighbours your co-workers your friends at school.... then your area...your city.... many want to go to china and so on, and im thankful for that, but many chinese in my country ...shouldent we first try them before travel the world? well if God told you to go then go, but otherwise we should start at home i belive, and i also think we should evangelise all the time, either by witnessing in words or handing out trackts or just by being you whit the son of gods spirit dwelling in you and just your life witnessing that there is a God by your actions by your conversations by your good works,

most people have listend to Ray Comforts messages.
i like him and also you should check out Mark Cahill, there is a guy burning to reach the lost, and have some good teachings in evangelising
if you havent already check them out, they have been a great blessing to me, and really helped me stand up more for Jesus in this dark world.

 Re: Evangelizing

It's not so much of being trained as "how to be a witness" as actually "being a witness." What we say evangelistically should simply come out of a life that has had a transforming encounter with the living Christ.

We must not simply be canned people, that know things such as James Kennedy's "Evangelism Explosion" or Ray Comfort's methods & props. Those things have their place, and can teach one some solid witnessing principles, but ultimately, the biggest thing is simply to let the Christ that lives in you speak to others.

Being a witness is not a program or method, being a witness is a way of life.
