I don’t know about you, but I need ALL the help I can get when it comes to intentionally helping people understand and embrace the Gospel. Each of today’s links aim to help you/me/us do just that.
Enjoy the articles. But please don’t JUST enjoy them. Intentionally put the lessons here into practice right way.
#1. 8 Evangelism Lessons from an Unlikely Convert by Nicholas McDonald
“Dr. Butterfield is a former lesbian and literature professor at Syracuse University, and is now a Christian mother married to a pastor in the Reformed Presbyterian Church. In the interview, she shares the story of her unlikely conversion and speaks frankly with Christians about how we can be better witnesses.”
#2. 1 Smart and Simple Way to Share Your Faith: Brag about Jesus by Taylor Buzzard
“I believe many of you share my desire to be more natural at introducing people to Jesus, the real Jesus. This exercise was so helpful to me that I wanted to share it with you. People love stories. They want to know what God has done for you.”
#3. 3 Ways the Gospel Changes How We Tip by Jared Totten
“The most personally painful moments have come when the occasional Christian convention or retreat takes over the hotel and the entire group tips poorly. I’ve found myself apologizing to my fellow tipped employees—even trying to use the opportunity as a springboard into presenting the gospel. Believe me, that’s a tough sell! . . . nothing models gospel grace like a generous tip even after a server has blown it and failed to ‘make it right.’ I know this is a hard pill to swallow for many of us (myself included), but why should the tip be the last thing to be impacted by the grace that has been poured out on us?”
#4. Are You Able to Let Go of Traditions? by Tony Morgan
“What would happen if the Church started doing less, but we encouraged people to do more outside the Church? What would happen if churches focused on what God called them to do, and empowered people to do what God calls them to do?”
#5. Is the Church for Christians? by Paul Alexander
“Could it be that the reason that many Churches are stuck today, is because they’ve been sold a lie that says Church is for Christians? That’s absolute opposite direction of what God has called His people to.”
