The Key Element To Evangelism

The Key Element To Evangelism
I often have people ask me what I see as the key component to evangelism is in today’s culture. I answer “the same thing that has been the key since Christ was around… Love”.

That sounds like a little bit of a pad answer, but it’s absolutely true. This world sees us (for good reason some times) as a big group of hypocrites. They hear us say “come and meet Jesus”… but why should they? What do they see us doing that sets us apart or makes the Lord real to them? However, if they first see us feeding the hungry, sheltering the homeless, comforting those in pain and encouraging the discouraged and THEN hear us say “come and meet Jesus” then we have much more credibility in their eyes.

This isn’t just some evangelistic strategy… it’s the command Jesus gave us, to “love one another”. You see, Love legitimizes the gospel that we preach. Without it, our witness is useless. I pray we can all understand this sooner rather than later.
