As a Christian, you have a responsibility to spread the good news to bring people into the freedom a life in Christ offers. That’s called Evangelism. It is not enough to merely mention his name whenever there is an issue but to share his goodness with those around you. I put these evangelism quotes and verses together to encourage you to go out to share Jesus today!
Every Christian is either a missionary or an impostor.
Radical obedience to Christ is not easy. It’s not comfort, not health, not wealth, and not prosperity in this world. Radical obedience to Christ risks losing all these things. But in the end, such risk finds its reward in Christ. And he is more than enough for us.”
God has given believers the responsibility of spreading the Gospel to all the world, and we need to use all at our disposal to accomplish this task
Jesus himself did not try to convert the two thieves on the cross; he waited until one of them turned to him.
Have you no wish for others to be saved? Then you’re not saved yourself, be sure of that!
Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Do you not know that God entrusted you with that money (all above what buys necessities for your families) to feed the hungry, to clothe the naked, to help the stranger, the widow, the fatherless; and, indeed, as far as it will go, to relieve the wants of all mankind? How can you, how dare you, defraud the Lord, by applying it to any other purpose?
Let eloquence be flung to the dogs rather than souls be lost. What we want is to win souls. They are not won by flowery speeches.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon
I believe that entertainment and amusements are the work of the Enemy to keep dying men from knowing they’re dying, and to keep enemies of God from remembering that they’re enemies.
Have you ever wondered what it feels like to have a love for the lost? This is a term we use as part of our Christian jargon. Many believers search their hearts in condemnation, looking for the arrival of some feeling of benevolence that will propel them into bold evangelism. It will never happen. It is impossible to love “the lost”. You can’t feel deeply for an abstraction or a concept. You would find it impossible to love deeply an unfamiliar individual portrayed in a photograph, let alone a nation or a race or something as vague as all lost people.
Don’t wait for a feeling or love in order to share Christ with a stranger. You already love your heavenly Father, and you know that this stranger is created by Him, but separated from Him, so take those first steps in evangelism because you love God. It is not primarily out of compassion for humanity that we share our faith or pray for the lost; it is, first of all, love for God.
But for this purpose, I have raised you up, to show you my power, so that my name may be proclaimed in all the earth.
We should be more concerned with reaching the lost than pampering the saved.
Introverted seekers need introverted evangelists. It’s not that extroverts can’t communicate the gospel, either verbally or nonverbally, in ways that introverts find appealing, it’s that introverted seekers need to know and see that it’s possible to lead the Christian life as themselves. It’s imperative for them to understand that becoming a Christian is not tantamount with becoming an extrovert.
Adam S. McHugh
The way you store up treasure in heaven is by investing in getting people there.
When we begin to reflect Christ, the Bible, when more understood as being centered around Christ, seems to be potentially every man’s biography regarding God’s promised experiences and truth for him – his individual, unique path of humbling oneself before the Lord and then being exalted by the Lord back into his true and righteous personhood. Many followers may speak of it merely to try to change other people (before changing themselves), but the prophets speak of it as a living word which miraculously tells their very own experiences.
If he has faith, the believer cannot be restrained. He betrays himself and breaks out. He confesses and teaches this gospel to the people at the risk of life itself.
Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom,” says Paul. And we are most in line with the Spirit, most faithfully obedient, when instead of trying to manipulate people into faith, we simply live in that freedom and let the Spirit do the work of transformation.
God will save whomever He chooses to save. The Christian should proselytize not because he thinks he can change everybody; he should proselytize because the Gospel being shared is the ultimate act of love: because he thinks he can love everybody.
If you had the cure to cancer wouldn’t you share it? … You have the cure to death … get out there and share it.
