Evangelism must be caught before it is taught.” Dr. Roy Fish
Years ago, I was a student in Dr. Roy Fish’s Evangelism Class. He told us that “Evangelism must be caught before it is taught.” You must do evangelism. Evangelism is not done in a classroom. One of the key ingredients in sharing the gospel with people is how you see them. I, for many years, looked at them as prospects to lead to Christ and get them involved in the church. Phillip Yancey has reminded believers to look at individuals with “Grace-filled” eyes. Grace will always cause us as believers to see people instead of prospects. We see people who are hungry to experience God’s love. I think we fail many times to reach out to others because we are not seeing them as people. The song writer and soloist, Steve Green sang that beautiful song, “People Need the Lord!” Someone said, “Grace Evangelism is a real joy instead of a religious job.” “Grace Motivates one to share a Person, not a plan.” (Steve McVey)
Let Us Grace others by doing Grace Evangelism. Let us look at people with the “Grace-Filled Eyes!”
When you get out of church today, call and invite someone to the Shiloh Road Concert at 5:00 p.m. this afternoon.
Blessings! Pastor Charles
