Hello WwinnieHow would/do you present the gospel message to someone?
I don't approach people unless the Spirit says so. Evangelism today seems to focus on numbers rather than making disciples. To me, this has led to a vast majority of false Christians. They prayed a formula prayer and think they have fire insurance now and they continue on with their lives, unrepentant, making their latter state worse than the former. "1,2,3 pray after me" is just a spiritually deadly poem.How would/do you present the gospel message to someone?
1 Samuel 16:7
For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance but the Lord looks on the heart.”
It's not our job to judge a heart... just to be a seed sower, and obedient to the Holy Spirit to speak what He wants spoken.
The evangelists job it to bring in the numbers, and get the masses saved... it's up to the church (pastor and members) to work on making diciples. They should be working with the evangelistic team to get the information of the new converts, so that they don't fall back into ungodly lifestyles. For God will only judge them on what light they had, not the light that we think that they should have.
We all have to work together to do what God has called us all to do. That's why we are the body, and Christ is the head.
Thank you, CTurtle, wow! This really speaks to me as our church family is praying and discussing "evangelism" and how this ties in with making "disciples".
God bless you!
