5 Books To Read On Witnessing
Every believer is to be a witness for the Lord Jesus Christ (Luke 24:48; Acts 1:8). In fact, every Christian is a witness – we may be a good one or a poor one, but we all testify to those around us about the reality of Christ in us! Gypsy Smith said that God wrote five gospel records – Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and the believer. Then he said, “Most people will never read the first four!” Someone is reading your life and what they know about Christ is what they see and hear in you. Has Jesus changed your heart? Then tell someone! “Let the redeemed of the Lord say so” (Psalm 107:2). Our life and our lips should…Read More
7 Excuses For Not Sharing Christ
This week I had the privilege of speaking at a special conference for revival and evangelism. My heart has been stirred and my hope renewed. Christ is still “able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him” (Hebrews 7:25). The gospel has not lost its power, it remains “the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth” (Romans 1:16)! God’s ability has not lessened and His promise has not expired. The problem is not with Him, but with us. A thousand and one excuses arise as to why we are not sharing Christ. The devil and our flesh will make sure of it. Here are 7 of the most common and an answer…Read More
What I Observed From A Seasoned Soulwinner
On Tuesday a dear man in the church where I was preaching asked if we could go witnessing together. It was such a privilege to listen to him share Christ with holy enthusiasm. He has been doing it for over half a century. I asked him how he started sharing his faith. He said that as a young professional he went witnessing with another believer. As he listened to his friend lead a family to Christ he said, “I was hooked!” It still has not grown old. Through the years I have knocked on many doors and engaged lots of people in conversation. I have learned from others how to speak about Christ. But this man’s spirit was contagious! When…Read More
5 Suggestions For Being A Better Witness During The Holidays
Over the next six weeks believers will have more opportunities to witness than perhaps at any other time of the year. Even secular people tend to think about spiritual things more during Thanksgiving and Christmas. For believers every day is a gospel day, but some days provide special open doors to unbelievers. We must not miss these times. How can we all be more effective witnesses? Don’t give a presentation – have a conversation. Speak to others as a real person talking to real people about another real Person! Stiff, formal, religious talks are not effective in reaching the lost. Avoid debate and argument. Simply, kindly tell others about the Lord Jesus Christ. He is enough. (Read more about his…Read More
10 Ways to Begin Bringing Others to Jesus
Have you ever had the joy of sharing Christ with someone and seeing that person come to know the Lord as their personal Savior? There is nothing in this world like it! We know that Jesus said, “ye shall be witnesses unto me” (Acts 1:8). How do we do what Jesus said? Everywhere I go people say to me, “I really want to bring someone to Christ, but I just don’t know where to start.” Let me give you a few ideas that you can put into practice today… Create a soul winning prayer list. Write down the names of those that you know need Christ and commit to pray for them every day. Ask the Lord to use you…Read More

Amy Carmichael was an amazing servant of Christ. As a young woman she sat in a meeting where D.L. Moody was preaching on the elder brother of Luke 15. When he came to the father’s words, “All that I have is thine,” the Holy Spirit spoke to her in a definite way. She thought of all that she had in Christ – all of the truth, all of the blessing, all of the joy. And then she thought of all that others had never received. God called Amy to go to India with the gospel. For many years she ministered to young girls who were being sold as prostitutes in Hindu temples. It was her joy to tell them that…Read More
A Special Announcement to Our Friends!
It is a great joy to announce the release of a writing project I have been working on for some time. The burden on my heart as an evangelist is to help train as many people as possible to engage where they are in the work of evangelism. Everyone needs the gospel of Jesus Christ! And every believer should be prepared to share it. And so the new resource… “Go!” is a training manual designed for use in Sunday School classes, Bible studies, soul winning training – anywhere believers could be stirred and equipped to witness! I have enjoyed writing the lessons and believe they will help to place an emphasis on eternity and the work of the gospel. One of…Read More
We Need More Evangelists!
We do not need more sermonizers, organizers, and motivators. We need more evangelists. Not just the kind who travel from place to place preaching in meetings. Our world is in desperate need for gospel consumed, Spirit-controlled, eternity conscious believers. People passionate about reaching souls for the Lord Jesus Christ. Evangelists. The work of evangelism is not just for evangelists. In fact, most evangelism will never be done within the confines of a church building or in the structure of an evangelistic crusade. The gospel is most effective one on one…just like Jesus deals with every sinner. Evangelism is one recipient of the good news sharing that good news with someone else. The word evangelism is rooted in the word “evangel,” literally,…Read More
Daily Witness (Daily Living – Part 8)
Every day is a gift. Yes, they are a gift from God, but for the discerning Christian they are also a gift to God. The Lord grants us breath, health, and strength. We, in turn, give each day back to Him as a gift of gratitude. The Lord gives life and we are to live each day for His glory. O, how selfish we can become! Our needs. Our wants. Our plans. Our schedules. All the while God is waiting on us to realize that He has a work for us to do. And those around us are waiting too. Every day there are precious souls within reach of our testimony. Lost, wandering people in search of something. Hurting hearts.…Read More
