7 Reasons Christians Don't Evangelize

Church revitalization is certainly possible in America. Are you and your staff willing to take a look in the mirror and do what it takes for that to happen? LifeWay's Thom S. Rainer weighs in.

Holy Spirit and evangelism

One Critical Reason God Gave You the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit does lots of incredible things in and through us. But in the Bible, it seems that whenever the Holy Spirit is given to someone, it's for one crucial reason: to preach the Gospel.

Billy Graham: 'Will You Pray With Me Today?'

Each of us can find ways to help specific people we know encounter the gospel. Thousands of believers across the nation, in every state, are taking the opportunity to do just that through the My Hope America outreach.

How the Salvation Message Releases Miracles

Jesus clearly taught us that we were to preach the message of the kingdom to every nation. But did you know He gave us an even bigger assignment than that? Check it out.

Reinhard Bonnke: God ‘Will Shake America’

Christ for All Nations kicked off its Good News crusade in Orlando, Fla., on Friday night. The renowned evangelist said it’s time America “kicked the devil to the curb.”

Evangelism 101

I'm convinced that God's will for you is to talk with other people about Christ.

While witnessing to a guy on the streets of Denver once I explained how he could give his life to Jesus Christ. His response was, "That's too easy." I replied, "Do you want me to make it difficult?"

Full-Circle Evangelism

There's nothing more exciting than leading someone to Christ through a "power encounter" hosted by the Holy Spirit. I've seen a waitress come to Christ because a group of us out for lunch simply showed Christ's love and talked to her and gave her words of knowledge-even one about her cat! I've also experienced times in which the Spirit of God is so tangible during ministry or a personal interaction that people have asked me, "What is this, and how do I come to know this Jesus you are talking about?"

When Jesus spoke brief words of knowledge to the woman in Samaria, she told the entire village about the Lord. I believe these types of power encounters have been God's preference for evangelism all along. Other methods have some impact, but nothing gets your attention like finding out that God "has your number."

Reaching Gays for God

A few years ago a Christian friend of mine, who happens to be an ordained clergyman, was participating in a pro-life march in New York City. Several evangelical and Roman Catholic groups were represented, so there were, predictably, vigorous counter-demonstrations. Many of these were led by gays.

My friend said that for many long minutes a counter-demonstrator kept pace with him from a few feet away, screaming hateful obscenities at him. His tirade slowing down for a few seconds, he shouted this strange question at my friend: "Why do you people hate us?"

The question seemed quite unrelated to the pro-life issue, which of course it is. The questioner identified himself as a gay activist.
