Sunday 23rd June, 2019: Doing the Work of an Evangelist
As we continue our preaching and Teachings on the Sub-Theme of the month, Walking in His Steps: Reconciling the World to God, todays worship shall focus on Doing the work of an evangelist. 2Tim. 4:5
Two important words we must attempt to define are Evangelist and “Evangelism
An Evangelist can be defined as a person with a special gift and calling from the Holy Spirit to announce personally and publicly the good news or the gospel (Eph. 4:11).
Evangelism can be defined as the act of declaring the good news of Jesus Christ so that people may understand Gods offer of salvation and respond in repentance, faith and walk with Christ.
So we can say that the work of an Evangelist is to win the lost to Christ through the preaching of the gospel in the power of the Holy Spirit for building the body of Christ.
However we do not need to have a special gift or calling in order to do the work of an evangelist – win souls for Christ. This is the focus of our worship today.
