The Great Commission speaks about evangelism when Jesus commanded His disciples in Mark 16:15 (NLT) Go into the world and preach the Good News to everyone. If we do not go into the world to preach the good news, the world will not know about the saving grace of Jesus Christ. The only way that souls will be saved is if we are obedient to the great commission. “The Great Commission is not an option to be considered, it is a command to be obeyed.” - Hudson Taylor
Evangelism is the heart beat of the church, it is the gift that grows the church and advances the Kingdom of God. The Evangelist is part of the fivefold ministry and plays an instrumental role in the body of Christ. The Evangelist mandate is soul winning, but I believe that every believer has a responsibility to tell somebody about Jesus Christ. “Jesus excitement is good and needed, but Christian commitment is an absolute necessity” - Bailey E. Smith.
The purpose for Jesus coming to earth was to save the world. John 3:16 (NKJ) For God so Loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. There is an urgency for people to be saved, so I believe that every believer’s purpose is to tell someone how to be saved. Mathew 10: 32(NKJ) Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. “The Gospel is not good news to people who do not hear it.”- Reinhard Bonnke
We as the church is accountable for the lost and for this reason God sent His son from heaven into this fallen world to salvage the lost. The world urgently needs the life-giving message of the cross more now than ever and the only way to reach the world is through EVANGELISM.
