The Message of Evangelism


Soul-winning is simple because the gospel is so simple. The essence of practically any gospel presentation simply confronts an unbeliever with basic fundamental facts:

(1) All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Rom 3:23)

(2) Salvation cannot be attained either by religion, ritual, or righteousness (Eph 2:8, 9)

(3) Christ died on the cross to pay for all our sins (1 John 1:7)

(4) Salvation comes by repenting from sin and by faith in Christ as Lord and Savior (Rom 10:9)


Never in the history of the church have so many tools or so much training been available to equip any Christian to share his faith in an effective, efficient manner. The problem is not ignorance. The real problem is indifference. It is absolutely urgent that the true church come alive again in enlisting, equipping, and motivating every individual member to share Jesus in the power of the Holy Spirit.

One other note must be added: It is not the Christian’s job to persuade the unbeliever to accept the gospel. It is his job simply to share the gospel. Remember: We have been called to be witnesses, not prosecuting attorneys. The results of our sharing are up to God.

Every Christian is to be a witness for Christ. It is the wise thing to do, for “He who wins souls is wise” (Prov 11:30). It is the right thing to do, for the Lord commands it. It is the need of the hour, as eighty-three souls per second, six thousand souls per hour, go to a Christless, hopeless grave. This article closes with an urgent plea to all who march under the blood-stained banner of Prince Immanuel, to realize and recapture the urgency of evangelism.

Amen! I hand out Pocket Testaments whenever I get the chance. I have been doing this over the past four years. I find that when I place the book in there hands, their reaction is overwhelming with kindness. God Bless!! [clap2]
