Our soul winning quote today is from Lee Strobel. He said: “I’ve seen far too many Christians who are more than willing to travel halfway around the world to volunteer for a week in an orphanage, but who cannot bring themselves to take the personal risk of sharing Jesus with the co-worker who sits day after day in the cubicle right next to them.”
Our soul winning devotional is part 32 of our series titled “What Evangelism Is” from Dave Earley and David Wheeler.
5. Servant evangelism is fun. Nothing is more rewarding and fun than serving others. This is especially true when Christians choose to fellowship and serve as they seek opportunities to point people to Christ. There is no need to feel guilty; it is OK to have fun and serve Christ at the same time!
6. Servant evangelism creates a lifestyle that permeates every aspect of a Christian’s life. Once you have learned the mind-set of service, you will find that you can share Christ anywhere, anytime, 24-7. You can do it at work, school, in your neighborhood, or at a sporting event. The key is to be intentional.
7. Servant evangelism exemplifies the ministry model and passion of Christ. Effective servant evangelists have adopted what is called the “Philippians 2 Attitude.” In Philippians 2, we are told to take on the humble servant attitude of Jesus.
Philippians 2:5-8 reads: “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.”Our soul winning passage from the Word of God today is Luke 9:1-2 which reads: “Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.”
In our next broadcast, we will look at why evangelism is…spiritual warfare.
