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."

6 Tips to Start Witnessing

The biggest roadblock to evangelism is beginning a conversation. Here’s how to get started.

 

I know many Christians who want to share their faith, but they struggle with finding a way to begin. There is no specific formula. God wants us to be spontaneous as we trust Him to give us the words. 


These suggestions will help you start the conversation:

1. Discuss spirituality. You might ask, “Do you attend church anywhere?” Regardless of the answer, try to steer away from getting caught up in a discussion about religion or “your” church. Many people have had negative church experiences. But this can still be a great door opener. Keep the focus on Christ because religion doesn’t change lives, Jesus does.

The Great Commission is not a suggestion. If you are wondering whether you should be involved in missions, consider these biblical mandates.

Twenty-three humanitarian workers from a church in South Korea were kidnapped in 2007 in Afghanistan. Two of them, including a pastor, were killed by their Taliban captors. After wrenching negotiations the remaining workers were freed. They came home—but not to accolades. They were castigated for bringing “shame” on their nation.
