Principles for Personal Evangelism

Today I’m sharing a final excerpt from the personal evangelism crash course. Today we’re going to look at some some observations from the way Jesus dealt with people who were spiritual outsiders, as well as I’ll just fire off kind of a machine gun method, some important little principles and things we need to know about personal evangelism.

We can learn a lot about evangelism and witness from looking at the life of Jesus. In fact a great exercise is to read the Gospels and see how Jesus interacts with those who are spiritual outsiders, who are far from God and there are many principles you can pull out.

Symptoms of a Contagious Follower of Jesus

A couple of weeks ago I spoke on the DNA of a Christ follower trait, the trait of being evangelistic. Someone who indeed proclaims the Good News. This is obviously a key trait. It is an important part of being like Jesus joining with him in his seeking and saving of the lost.

And to make the point of course I used Luke 15 where Jesus tells the story: lost sheep, lost coin, lost son. And makes the point how important lost people are to God and how important they ought to be to us. And I kind of use the concept of being a contagious Christian which is a phrase based on a course in evangelism of course called “Contagious Christian.”.

The idea being that you kind of have this disease that is passed on and transmitted to others and so I used, as my main point, symptoms of a contagious Christian. The kind of follower of Jesus who passes on the disease, the good disease.

Slaves Who Think They’re Free

Here’s a transcript of the above podcast episode:

Welcome to Piority Pastor my name is Daren Wride. I just came across a quote that was actually mentioned by a person in a podcast I listened to just the other day. A quote from Harriet Tubman, who was a lady who born into the slavery back in 1822 and escaped to freedom and then helped rescue many others from slavery. Just a fascinating individual.

I read up on her a bit after I came across this quote. Even the intro in Wikipedia is fascinating and she’s obviously an incredibly amazing woman. The quote that this fellow mentioned in this podcast was a quote from Harriet Tubman where she said “I freed a thousand slaves. I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves.”
