There is a heartbeat to evangelism. You hear it as you draw near to God. The veins of gospel outreach pulsate with the love of God. Love compelled the Father to send his beloved Son into this broken world to rescue fallen humanity (John 3:16; 1 John 4:9). In love’s greatest display, Jesus laid down his life, dying upon a cross for the sins of the world (John 15:13; 1 John 3:16). Love issued the command that sent the disciples into the world as gospel-bearers and ambassadors of the King. True evangelism flows from the love of God.
Has God always been concerned about extending His love and forgiveness to all nations and peoples of the earth? Both the Old and New Testaments show God’s offer of grace is to everyone — Jew and Gentile alike.
Evangelism is both an art and a science. Jill believes the science has to do with using evangelistic tools and the art is how we relate to people.
When you tell your story, it’s God who is responsible for changing people’s hearts. You are simply called to be ready and to share what God has done in your life.
