If you don’t have any issue meeting discussing Jesus with people you just met, and you just want pointers on how to evangelize, then you are on the right course. Here we discuss two things, how to develop the boldness and keep it fresh every day, and ways to evangelize.
Most people come to Christ through established relationships. This course focuses on indiscriminate approaches where the likelihood of someone giving themselves up to Christ in your meeting is unlikely. Not impossible, but not likely. Think of your role as someone who scatters seeds or waters the seeds, an in rare occasions actually harvest the crop. Each person you meet may be the first time they were contacted about Christ, or it may have been the tenth time. The first time they are contact a seed is planted. The next time it is like watering the seed. Until finally, there is a time when that person is ready to harvest – they give themselves to Christ. Obviously, watering the seed will probably happen most.
One thing that is important is having a quick 30 second elevator testimony. Take some time to create one, but do not let this get in the way of you and your evangelistic effort. Go bring the Good News to people you meet. Think about your life, actually meditate on it. Try to find all the times God was in your life. Watch as God reveals this to you. It will be amazing. It is like looking at a map, and seeing all the turns you took to get where you are. All those turns are decision points, and God is going to reveal these to you and you can relish in the glory of His love for you.
Thinking of these things will give you a repository of information you can use at any time when you are talking to someone about Christ. You will find that you will have a lot in common with most people you meet. This is very valuable as you can identify with people’s issues or concerns, but give evidence of how God helped you at these crossroads.
And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Philippians 4:8
