The guys over at JackHammer have posted a series of good articles on evangelizing the lost. These articles reminded me of a sermon I preached at my church and posted here a couple of years ago: Go. I recommend that you read this sermon and the following articles at Jack Hammer.
- What Part of â€œGoâ€ Donâ€™t We Understand?
- Reducing Ourselves to Scriptural Evangelism
- Beyond Door-to-Door
- Soul Winning
- How Did Jesus Evangelize? part one
- How Did Jesus Evangelize? part two
We need to get back to preaching the gospel. Too many people have been taught wrongly on how to be a witness. They’ve been taught a method that makes the person rely too much on themselves and their ability to persuade a lost person to make a decision. We need to get back to the place where we don’t rely on our own abilities, but rather rely on the preached word and the Holy Spirit’s power to convict the lost sinner. We only need to be faithful to following God’s command in preaching the gospel and the Holy Spirit will convince the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment.
