Based on the lack of replies from a previous poll thread I am sad that I have failed to properly emphasize the importance of evangelism here and it is very important. Some teach that evangelism is not something that we do, but something that we are and there is some truth to this, however overall its a false idea, as it goes against scripture which says to go out and "preach" to every creature. Lifestyle/friendship evangelism is often a cop-out for doing the real work of evangelism. Also there are others that teach that they do not need to do evangelism, but must rely on the "professional" evangelist to do the work. This idea is very common among IFB churches, and is another false view, because evangelism is for all believers. Such types completely ignore the teachings of Hells Best Kept Secret and the Way of the Master. I have challenged them, but they ignore me, so they have not thought out their ideas. They often say "Steve Petit" or "whomever" gets lots of people saved, and God works through him. Yes God can work through them, but what of those that go out and get no one saved? Are they not as obedient and used by God as well? Also how do you know how many that made professions are really a true convert? I hope people will get excited about evangelism on this board. So here is a devotional to help. From the Way of the Master Minute Thus says the Lord, 'Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: But let him that glories glory in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the Lord.'"(Jeremiah 9:23-24) We may have the wisdom of Solomon, the might of Samson, or the riches of Abraham, but God says that that is nothing to get excited about. We should instead be rejoicing if we know God and understand what it is that pleases Him. He delights in loving kindness, judgment, and righteousness. And there is no greater evidence of these things than in the cross of Calvary. It was there that He once and for all displayed His love, His justice, and His righteousness. There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
