The Urgency for Evangelism Why American Christian need to be intentional and consistent about sharing their faith.

All Need JesuS!

ETERNAL DESTINY FOR THE UNSAVED

Lost people need a relationship with God and need to obtain Christ’s righteousness, even if they look fine. Unless man is made aware of his downfall, he will go on thinking he is ok and has no reason to repent.

“Evangelism is just one beggar telling another beggar where to find bread for food.” -D. T. Niles

Jesus Had urgency in his ministry.

*Jesus is urgent about reaching the lost for the eternal destiny of all. He loves all and wants all to come to Him. Christians should also strive to keep this mindset and be doing His kingdom work.

  • He was radical and extreme.
  • He had discernment and sensitivity to the God’s promptings.
  • He approached witnessing differently depending on the audience.
  • He evangelized confidently and persistently.
  • He sought people often.
  • He was approachable. Made Himself Available.
  • He always expected the gospel to reproduce in the lives of others.

SHOWING GENUINE LOVE COMMANDED IN THE BIBLE

"How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?" Romans 10:14

Good news is good news.

THE urgency of the GREAT COMMISSION

"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit" (Matthew 28:19 ESV). The eternal destiny of man is at stake. Evangelism needs to be made a top priority.
