People in the world are looking at us, wondering if we really believe what we say we believe. Our core beliefs, such as people are lost without Jesus, his sacrifice was necessary to pay for our sins, and the reality of heaven and hell, should move us to evangelize. If we don't feel compelled to evangelize, can we say we really believe our beliefs?
Do an honest and humble self-assessment of your personal evangelistic temperature — identify the level of your evangelistic passion on a scale of one to ten. Then, do something to raise your temperature by one degree.
Evangelism is not a spectator sport. We are all called to get into the game. God invites every follower of Jesus to get off the sidelines and onto the field. We do this by being salt and light in the ways that feel most natural to us.
Prayer is the cornerstone of all effective outreach. We unleash heavenly power when we pray for lost people. We are also called to pray for ourselves and other believers to enter the harvest fields with God's good news.
