Evangelism ¿ Say What

Discussion in 'Evangelism' started by Fish Catcher Jim, Sep 17, 2016.

  1. Of course we care!!!

    For myself, I come here to find out how others see HIM and what HE is doing in their lives, and to share insights related to the Christian life among us as fellow believers.

  2. Funny how some folks make such a big deal about this word. They create such huge debates.

    In All Truth it can be so very simple. Yep as simple as standing Strong and True unto the ways of God in this perverse world.

    See then it is as a witness and this witness shall go forth even as evangelizing those around you.

    Hello Fish Catcher Jim,

    You began the thread by inquiring concerning the word in question, so it must mean something to you too. If you ask a question then you must expect responses, some to your liking and others not. :)

    * Our lives give evidence to what we believe, in the choices we make and the way we live our lives. As believers in the Lord Jesus Christ our lives will reflect that, in the fruit that we bear. This is our witness, and it speaks louder than words.

    'But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,
    longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
    Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
    And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
    If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
    ... Let us not be desirous of vain glory,
    ... provoking one another,
    ... envying one another.

    (Gal 5:22)

    'And this I pray,
    that your love may abound yet more and more
    in knowledge and in all judgment;
    That ye may approve things that are excellent;
    that ye may be sincere
    and without offence till the day of Christ;
    Being filled with the fruits of righteousness,
    which are by Jesus Christ,
    unto the glory and praise of God.

    (Php 1:9)

    'Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you?
    let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
    ... But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts,
    ... glory not, and lie not against the truth.
    ... This wisdom descendeth not from above,
    ... but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
    ... For where envying and strife is,
    ... there is confusion and every evil work.
    But the wisdom that is from above is first pure,
    then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated,
    full of mercy and good fruits,
    without partiality,
    and without hypocrisy.
    And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace
    of them that make peace.'

    (Jas 3:13)

    'We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
    praying always for you,
    Since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus,
    and of the love which ye have to all the saints,
    For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven,
    whereof ye heard before
    in the word of the truth of the gospel;
    Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world;
    and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you,
    since the day ye heard of it,
    and knew the grace of God in truth:'

    (Col 1:3-6)

    With love in Christ Jesus
    Our risen and glorified,
    Saviour, Lord and Head.
  4. Hi Chris,
    I thought it would be a good thing to talk about all the different ways people see a way to Evangelize.

    I did not even consider that born again Spirit Filled Believers would ever debate the authenticity of the word Evangelism.

    Now as I was saying in the post you quoted.

    Ones Witness can and should be as an Evangelizing tool or effort.

    For This Example we will use the work place.

    Now we know it is not always peaches and cream around the work place and workers tend to get attitudes and try to one up others and so forth.
    We find foreman that get ugly and mean and play favorites and turn the work place into groups.

    Now the unsaved will push and fight to get their way or what they feel is best for them.

    Now here you are a born again Spirit filled believer stuck right in the middle of this mess.

    Now you have choices to make. How will you conduct yourself amongst these folks.

    Here is my Point Chris,
    One can simply decide to Evangelize the work place and do it through Walking as God has said to in His Written Word.

    You walk in Love and never hold a grudge or demand your so called rights. You forgive and endure.
    You stay in Joy of the Lord at all times and always ready to help another even if they are behind those who persecute you and trip you up as far as work goes.

    You pray before your meal and snacks and pull out your pocket NT bible and read through your lunch.

    You bless others and pray for them and are always joyful and pleasant no matter what.

    Then the questions start coming in.
    Do you really believe all that Jesus stuff
    And questions like.....I see you praying everyday. Do you think you could pray for my child or this or that.

    This goes on and on.
    Now God moves through you the worker and things happen and one would have to be pretty dumb to not see the Glory of God working, because God answers prayers and see's your efforts and walking upright before Him and ungodly men and moves through you.

    Now things are beginning to change and men are getting saved and re dedicating their lives to Christ and taking it home to their families.

    Now then, there was nothing more then a desire to share the Love of God in this dark world by a God Loving employee.

    Evangelize is for every one and can be done through the simplest things.
    God Bless
    From Pieces To Peace and Cturtle say Amen and like this.
