Evangelism: Day by Day

Evangelism - Day by Day in 2016

Day by day. The lives of ordinary men and women were being powerfully transformed.

  1. Transformation began with conviction (Acts 2:37).
  2. Conviction produced devotion (Acts 2:42).
  3. Devotion was fueled by awe (Acts 2:43).
  4. Fellowship with God and each other powerfully shaped everyday life (Acts 2:42-47).

Where does this ancient “newborn picture” of the Lord’s church ultimately lead? Evangelism. The sharing of good news. Evangelism involves four things:

  1. Good news (Acts 3:12-26; 8:25, 40; 14:6-7, 21; 20:24)
  2. Someone to share (Acts 4:20; 5:42; 8:1, 4; 14:15; 15:35; 26:16-18)
  3. Someone to hear (Acts 3:11; 5:14; 6:7; 8:12, 30-31; 10:24)
  4. The act of sharing (Acts 8:35; 13:32-33; 14:6-7; 17:1-3; 24:25; 28:30-31)

Evangelism is sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with the aim of persuading someone else to respond to God’s offer of grace.

  • “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation” (Mark 16:15)
  • “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations” (Matt 28:19)

…in order that men and women might be…

  1. Convicted by the good news
  2. Devoted to the good news
  3. Moved to worship and serve in awe of the Author of the good news
  4. Bound together in fellowship by the good news
  5. Sharers of the good news
