Romans 1:16-17, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.””
We often tend to overanalyze sharing the gospel to the point of excess information. Evangelism flows freely from our lives when we learn how to:
- Speak and live God’s truth
- Live in the presence of Christ’s love
- Walk in the power of the Spirit
Evangelism should flow freely, as God calls us to the right moment and individual. There’s no need to get hung up on where we are in the process. it looks like this: It begins as merely discovering who the person is and having a genuine interest in them. Asking questions and drawing out people is an excellent way to stimulate discussion. Meeting others in the context of our interests ensures opportunities of conversation.
Now when we have discovered where people are and have aroused their interest in what we have to say, then we are ready to relate the gospel message. Conversations usually dealing with relationships, ideas, and sources of authority provide natural openings to move the discussion from the comfortable and relaxed to questions of eternal purpose. Besides engaging thoughtfully with others, cultivating also takes place in the context of our everyday lives and interests. In everything, it’s important to remember that many folks won’t pay attention to our ‘Gospel’ conversation before they have seen our love and care for them as persons.
Therefore, keep in mind that proclaiming the unchanging message of Christ is at the core of evangelism. Our task is to introduce the gospel in the power of the Holy Spirit with confidence and faith in God’s power to convert. We are sharing how God works in our lives, as the Gospel has already transformed our lives.
