Email Tips: You Are An Evangelist

This "tip" was originally delivered on Saturday, August 17th, 2019 .

Evangelism is the promulgation of the gospel, so says Noah Webster.

It requires exposure, explanation, and exhortation of the truth toward those who disagree or have not heard.

When the church was being established God gave only some to be evangelists, but henceforth every member of the body is called to speak the truth in love (Eph 4:15-16).

You are an evangelist! Yes, you.

A common picture of evangelism is someone with a stadium, loud speaker, or large crowds, but much evangelism happens in casual private conversations or even in silence (reading).

Think about passing out resources, writing up tracts, making conversation at the coffee shop, small Bible studies, dinner invitations, and on and on.

I heard the gospel over a dinner table.

I was first exposed to dispensational right division when a friend handed me a book and I read it. We did not talk too much about it.

Three things would certainly happen if every person who did not have a grace church started publishing the gospel of grace to the people around them.

  1. There would be 100% more evangelists in your town than there are today.
  2. People would know there is someone nearby who stands for the gospel of the grace of God and the Bible rightly divided.
  3. More assemblies would be planted as people respond to such evangelism activity.

You are called to speak the truth in love. You are an evangelist.

“… do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.” – 2 Timothy 4:5

Keep pressing on,

Justin “evangelist” Johnson
