You believed that souls needed to hear and believe the Gospel for their salvation. You gave your time and effort to this work. Then you quit. Why? Where did you go? What superior belief did you adopt that led you away from Gospel work?
The goal of this post is to encourage you to obtain a firm Scriptural understanding of why you want to get in the game and what is the reality of being in the game.
The first question for anyone wanting to get in the game is why? Did you have an emotional response to a message? A church service? A friend’s story? Or did you come to a deep, well like, unwavering, belief in the Gospel and its purpose.
Did you understand the implication of the conversion of Saul of Tarsus and his profound life change that led him to declare that righteousness does not come by law keeping but by faith.
Did you perceive that evangelism was simple task with little or limited resistance from the world? Or did you enter the evangelistic world fully anticipating resistance from the ‘Prince of the power of the air’ (Eph. 2:2) and ‘rulers, powers, the world forces of this darkness and the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places’. (Eph 6:12).
The reality of the need of man to hear the Gospel to be saved and the forces against the evangelist never change. It’s the world you live within; you must embrace this reality to persevere in the work of an evangelist or you’ll probably quit.
