'Crash course in evangelism'

Sat, 10 May 2014 17:00:03 GMT

Somebody tweeted that they were teaching a "crash course in evangelism." I don't know anything about the person, his course, or how or where he teaches. I do know some churches and saints who need such a course. Then again, I've become convinced that evangelism is not learned in a course or a school room. Anybody can make a speech behind a lecturn. But that is not the Lord Jesus' idea of workers in the vineyard, who are out harvesting the field. I've known few people who had the gift of evangelism. I've said before that I don't have that gift. I've had to learn on my own, pretty much, how to evangelize. May there be more among us who make the effort to learn by the grace of God, the example of Christ and the breath of the Spirit. In these is our crash course of evangelism.
