Below are some of my favorite excerpts from the book which expounds the discipline behind evangelism for the purpose of Godliness.
If we want to define it simply, we could say that New Testament evangelism is communicating the gospel. Anyone who faithfully relates the essential elements of God's salvation through Jesus Christ is evangelizing.
While Christians are not expected to use the same methods of evangelism, but Christians are expected to evangelize.
All believers have been given power to be witness of Jesus Christ. It is the gospel that is the power of God for salvation and not our own eloquent power or persuasiveness,
There is also power for evangelism in the one living a sincere Christian life.
In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. --Mathew 5:16Evangelism is a discipline, in that we must discipline ourselves to get into the context of evangelism, that is, we must not just wait for witnessing opportunities to happen.
After knowing all these the author leave us with questions to challenge us:
Since evangelism is expected, will you obey the Lord and witness?
Since evangelism is empowered, will you believe God can use your words in the salvation of others?
Since evangelism is a discipline, will you plan for it?
