Then Jesus made the circuit of all the towns and villages. He taught in their meeting places, healed their bruised and hurt lives. When he looked out over the crowds, his heart broke. So confused and aimless they were, like sheep with no shepherd. “What a huge harvest!” he said to his disciples. “How few workers! On your knees and pray for harvest hands!”|
How do you share your faith? It seems there are as many methods as there are Christians, doesn't it? But not all hit the target. Some, in fact, are about as effective as shooting ourselves in the foot.
Sometimes we make evangelism more complicated than necessary. We can worry so much about getting the technique right that we lose the heart of Christ. Thinking through His example, let's cull four essentials that will make our efforts to evangelize more natural.
First, we must _____ _______________.
Second, we must ______ ____________.
Third, me must _______ _____________.
Fourth, we must _____ ______________.
“Don't begin by traveling to some faroff place to convert unbelievers. And don't try to be dramatic by tackling some public enemy. Go to the lost, confused people right here in the neighborhood. Tell them that the kingdom is here.” — Jesus|
