Helping Christians Become More Evangelistic
September 12, 2012 5 Comments
A modern worldview fixes everything with information. The problem is, that doesn’t work. You know this already. You know the tendency…that when a problem arises (people aren’t evangelistic enough) that the solution is always the same (have more lessons on it). And if people don’t get it, what do we do then? Teach it even more until they do! This is not hard to figure out. This is nothing new. Take a good look at how Jesus got people to be evangelistic and others focused. He didn’t just give them information, he lived it out with them. If we want people to “get it” it is going to take a lot more than a one shot crash course in techniques and guilt trips. We have to create a culture were these things are practiced and celebrated. Until we do that don’t expect anything to change. The problem is, it is easier to prepare a one hour class or thirty minute sermon than it is to change a culture.
