Christianity: Evangelism is a Truly a Team Effort

Good Essays
When I first started this course, I was a little concerned that I would have problems. Not with the academics of it, but more of the personal level. I’ve always been a bit on the shy side, but I would always go out of my way to help someone in need.

The first major experience I have had with the course is I have learned to stop pretending to be someone I am not. God made me exactly as He saw fit to create me, so why would I want to change His vision He has for me? I am not an overly outgoing person, and trying to act like an extrovert has only made me more frustrated and seemingly less effective when it came to spreading my faith. Instead of trying to keep up with the world’s view of what an Evangelical Christian should look like, I find myself being drawn to becoming more faithful to God’s custom idea of how I should be living my life and how I should evangelize with others. God designed me in a special way to know that if I kept trying to share God’s word with others like someone else, my message would become lost in the chaos.

Evangelism is truly a team effort, so if I remember that not only do I have God on my side, but that I have the entire community support behind me. I may just be one person, but the one person I am can truly change the world. I also need to think outside the box and find ways to share His word. I can’t influence anyone to head to the faith if I am not involved with people who do not believe. God will draw people Himself, but it is my job to make sure that I lift up God before other people.

Using the chapters from the course is a great way to overcome my own personal fears about evangelism, they are a great tool for me to look back on when I need an extra push to lead someone to fait...

..."For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of; for necessity is laid upon me; yea woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel."—1 Corinthians 9:16

I finally believe, that even the worst of people can truly be changed by the good news that is the Gospel. The best person to show this is Paul, having one of the worst and most exceedingly sinful people completely worked over by Jesus speaking from heaven. He completely changed his life when he heard Jesus’ words, so who is to say that we, as Christians, can’t change the life of a modern day Paul, simply by sharing the word of God. Preaching and sharing the gospel is the best way to lift up Jesus Christ, at least in my own eyes. Showing people that they can truly be saved and live an amazing eternal life simply by knowing and accepting Jesus Christ as their savior can truly change everything.
