Kingdom Building Through Evangelism!

Evangelism is one of the primary functions of the believer. In Matthew 28:19-20, we discover Jesus’ message on evangelism in these words, “Go ye therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit, (v.20) 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. The Christian Manifesto is neatly discussed in this message from the enunciator of evangelism Himself. Our duty is to witness, share, and discuss our faith and experiences with others to encourage them to seek our Christ. Not merely from the theological point, but from the experiential as well. Christ is the center of all joy for us and we express Him not only as the Christ of the Bible but the happiness, help, and hope of our lives. The main part of evangelism is the “going” part. It is not evangelism if it is in the comfortable confines of our church. We are called to share and then share not only from the Bible but also from the heart. Apostle Peter said in I Peter 3:15b, “…always be ready to give defense to everyone who ask you a reason for the hope that is in you with meekness and fear…”. Thusly, our challenge is to give people a reason why we have hope in Jesus. We live in a world that is weak and wicked. Many people are hurting right in our own families and need to know the healing, salvific, message of Jesus Christ. We are the light, we are the salt, we are the city set on a hill, if we will just shine, season and stay, others will see our good works and worship Christ.
