Thoughts on Evangelism and sharing the Gospel

Thoughts on Evangelism and sharing the Gospel… Sadly there are many times when we use different excuses for not actually having to talk to people about Jesus. Yes, we can share our faith by being relational, and by being a good witness etc, I know because I used to say that. I wasn’t comfortable with ‘straight out’ sharing my faith because it took me out of my comfort zone. I’m still not the best at it, I sometimes struggle to express myself, but now I know that I need to get out of my comfort zone,  and I do my best to do that. I used to say it’s not my gift. I am more a ‘such and such’, that’s not my ministry, but now I know its everyone’s ministry and responsibility. I don’t say that with a ‘side order of guilt’ or a ‘helping of condemnation’. I say it…

Salvation or feel-good experience?

Salvation or feel-good experience? People who don’t know God don’t know about sin… it’s not in the modern secular vocabulary. People know good and bad but not their need to be saved from sin. If we only focus on acceptance and tolerance people are not presented with the whole gospel. Do we want people to be saved or make them feel good? ~Cam Richmond~ Please visit: www.lightforlifeinspirations.com www.facebook.com/groups/eternitymatters www.facebook.com/lightforlifepage www.facebook.com/sayaprayerforme www.facebook.com/theanswerIvefound www.facebook.com/lovewithoutexpectationspage www.facebook.com/theanswersivefound

Jesus can only be what you preach Him to be…

Jesus can only be what you preach Him to be… The Holy Spirit can only bless what you say about Jesus. The Spirit cannot bless what you do not say about Him. If “this same Jesus,” the very “Jesus whom Paul preaches,” is preached now, the Spirit of God will confirm it. Preach a limited Jesus, and He can not be Himself. He does not save unless you preach a Savior. He does not heal unless you preach the Healer. How many are guilty of stripping our precious Lord; men stripped Him once for His crucifixion. Unbelief strips Him again of His power. He is no longer mighty to save and heal in many a church. To use Paul’s expression, He is “restricted” in our lives, which means “hemmed in with no room to work” (2 Corinthians 6:12). Again we read in Mark 16,20 “And they went out and preached everywhere,…

The Cross of Christ

Outside of the cross of Jesus Christ, there is no hope in this world. That cross and resurrection at the core of the Gospel is the only hope for humanity. Wherever you go, ask God for wisdom on how to get that Gospel in, even in the toughest situations of life. ~Ravi Zacharias~ [subscribe2] Please visit: www.lightforlifeinspirations.com www.facebook.com/groups/eternitymatters www.facebook.com/lightforlifepage www.facebook.com/sayaprayerforme www.facebook.com/theanswerIvefound www.facebook.com/lovewithoutexpectationspage www.facebook.com/theanswersivefound

Holding out the word of life

                            “holding out and offering to everyone the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I will have reason to rejoice greatly because I did not run [my race] in vain nor labor without result.” ‭‭~Philippians‬ ‭2:16‬~ The passage goes…  “Do everything readily and cheerfully—no bickering, no second-guessing allowed! Go out into the world uncorrupted, a breath of fresh air in this squalid and polluted society. Provide people with a glimpse of good living and of the living God. Carry the light-giving Message into the night so I’ll have good cause to be proud of you on the day that Christ returns. You’ll be living proof that I didn’t go to all this work for nothing.” ‭‭~Philippians‬ ‭2:14-16‬~ The Message Translation “holding out and offering to everyone the word of life” “holding up the…

I count it but loss, for the sake of the cross…

“But whatever former things were gains to me  [as I thought then],  these things  [once regarded as advancements in merit] I have come to consider as loss  [absolutely worthless] for the sake of Christ [and the purpose which He has given my life].” ‭‭~PHILIPPIANS‬ ‭3:7‬~ In the last 3 years out of the 33 or so years, I have been a conscious Christian I have only just started to grasp the meaning of this verse.  It was around 3 years ago that I awoke to the most important realization of my life.  The message of the gospel is life-saving and all people need saving. The mission truly became real to me.  Since that time as the urgency of the gospel message took hold, everything in my life began to change, suddenly the things that used to count seemed so unimportant, so vain, so temporal, so plastic The words of Ecclesiastes…
