Notes: Natural Evangelism
Harvest Worship Band
February 25, 2016 — 7:00 p.m.
J. John says we are part of a global enterprise. That we, the church, take care of people from birth to death.
We are to seek and save the lost.
A missionary is not someone that crosses the sea, a missionary is someone that sees the cross.
Acts 1:8 NLT
 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere-in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."
People are not Christians for two reasons, because they never met a Christian, or because they did meet a Christian.
Three things prayer helps us with:
1. Communicate our faith by praying.
When we pray, coincidences happen and when we don't they don't.
Try starting in the place of your greatest failure in evangelism, your family, friends and colleagues.
We need to cultivate the web of relationships that we already have.
Be intentional in prayers for those people you want to see come to know Christ.
J. John prays for a hour each day as he walks with his wife.
We have to pray! When we pray, things shift and change.
As a Christian where ever you are going you carry the presence of the Lord.
2. Praying will always lead to caring.
We always have a little battle going on inside of us, if we should pray or not for others at any given time.
Our prayers don't have to be heard by others. He prayed for an atheist, "on the inside" not aloud just for him silently. He can't head butt the guy into heaven.
It seems to be easier for some to fly around the world to tell someone about Jesus then to tell their own neighbors.
Praying leads to caring, so pray for those around you.
Sometimes evangelism starts out as an inconvenience in your current situation but ends up a blessing to you and others.
We live in a world of miracles and mystery but God is concerned about what concerns us.
People don't care about how much we know, until they know how much we care.
3. Sharing the Good News.
Our responsibility as Christians is to go into Gods orchard and check the fruit. When it is ripe, we need to go there and pick it.
Nonbelievers are every where. Just share with the people around you.
God is your friend, introduce Him to your other friends and family.
Every introduction to God is a link in the chain to bringing people to God.
We all need to help plant the seed of the Good News.
We are witnesses of our faith. We need to tell people simply what we know.
In God's eyes we never lose our value, no matter what we think.
Jesus bought us back so He could restore us and clean us.
What's God doing in your life?
Wherever you go, sow the seed.
Why are you a Christian? Because it's true.
Is Jesus in the driver's seat of your life? Are you a back seat driver? Do we need to reposition Jesus?
Is He F.I.R.S.T. in your life?
Put God First.
