Evangelism should be the lifestyle of every disciple of Jesus.

Compassion toward all human beings is part of our calling and enables us to see the lost through the eyes of Jesus to lead them to Him.

Evangelism is preaching the Gospel and taking care of new believers to lead them into maturity.

We can better understand Evangelism and Compassion and how it relates to the Church and our lives by exploring the following;

Imagine you are very busy selling cold drinks on the beach where several thousands of tourists are enjoying their vacation. You just heard through the radio that there is going to be a tsunami in the area in one hour’s time. The government is asking the people on the beach to hurry to the nearby mountain. You know in a few minutes’ time the waves of the sea will rise up high and wash away everyone and destroy everything.

What will you do and how will you communicate the message to the people on the beach?

Preaching the Gospel is one of the most joyful privileges—to communicate the urgent news that there is a way for humanity’s salvation from eternal destruction is a huge calling.

It is also a very important responsibility because, if we do not communicate this news on time, it will lead those who have not heard to eternal death.

The Gospel is the Good News of the Lord Jesus Christ.

This news is for everyone irrespective of race, caste, sex, creed, nationality, or color. It is through sharing the Good News with someone who has never heard it that that person can receive the love of God.

Someone correctly said once that evangelism is like one beggar telling the other where he found bread.

The Story of Paul Rader

Some years ago, evangelist Paul Rader persistently was urging a banker in New York to receive Christ, but the man never responded. One day, Rader sensed that God wanted him to go immediately and speak to this man again.

Obediently, he took a train and went with all speed to the town where the man lived. He hurried to the bank and found his friend standing in the doorway. “Rader,” the friend said, “I’m glad to see you! I wrote a letter begging you to come but later changed my mind and didn’t send it.” “That’s all right,” said the evangelist, “your message came through by way of heaven.”

Under deep conviction of sin, the banker was impressed by Rader’s earnestness and his special effort to reach him with the Gospel; that same hour, he received Christ. Suddenly, the banker gave a strange gasp and fell into the evangelist’s arms—DEAD! He had been saved on the very brink of eternity.

Seeing as God sees and responding as Jesus would requires growth in our spiritual journey.

We can do nothing apart from Jesus Christ. He promised to be with us when we go out to preach the Gospel and make disciples. He also promised to send us the Holy Spirit to empower us to make us effective witnesses for Him.

What is your experience of preaching the Gospel and making disciples? What needs to change?

What are some of your strengths for which to thank God and which to use in serving others?

Global Disciples Canada is a Christian mission organization that trains local leaders living near least-reached communities to multiply disciples for Christ. One-third of our world hasn’t heard the Good News of Jesus. Yet. Global Disciples refers to these as “least-reached” people, and fewer than 10% of all missionaries work among these groups. We live in a time where many of these people are within reach of a local church. Through our simple and effective strategy of training and coaching, believers share the Gospel in their own nations and cultures. Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all nations,” and we’re committed to doing just that. If you are looking for a Christian mission organization to partner with to become a better disciple and help make disciples, connect with us today!
