27 “Then the rich man said, ‘Please, Father Abraham, at least send him to my father’s home. 28 For I have five brothers, and I want him to warn them so they don’t end up in this place of torment. Luke 16:27-28
Watch this video by Penn Gillette, an atheist, as he talks about a time a man came up to him, gave him a Bible, and talked to him about God.
Do we really believe the message we preach? If we do, we should have a burning passion in us to tell everyone we know about it about God. It’s so easy to lose sight of the importance of evangelism! It’s so easy to pass the people we know don’t know Christ everyday and think nothing of it. I do it, you do it, we all do it.
Do we really believe this message we preach? And if we do, how bad do we have to hate someone to not tell them about God?
If you’ll be open and ask God to use you, you’ll start to see opportunities all around you everyday to share Christ with people. When the opportunity comes, go for it! You never know the impact a few words could have, even if they don’t react the way you’d want them to.
Finally, I just want to make note that the man who talked to Penn, did not freak him out. I see so many Christians that are so “spiritual” that they drive everyone they meet away from God. They make me not want to be a Christian! So please don’t be so “flaky” when you talk to people about God that you turn them away. I’d recommend watching Perry Noble‘s seminar on Evangelism, he’s got some great advice!
How bad do we have to hate people to not tell them about God?
Who are you going to tell?
