And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.
How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?
For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.
Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.
The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.
Even so it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.
who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
Principles of Evangelism Jesus style
Build a bridge, don’t burn it!
The woman at the well - Jesus engaged her by starting a conversation about her! people love to talk about themselves
Jesus didn’t ostracize himself from this woman
we are not supposed to separate but permeate the world with the message of the gospel
Evangelism starts with caring, with sharing someone’s burden
begins with a burden!
But He needed to go through Samaria.
go to people who are different than us! different ages, races, social economical, any type of difference! go to them!
remember Jonah! He didn’t want to go to these people...
You need to use tact!
