How wonderful will it be,to have a front row seat working with God in what he is doing in my community and people around me.The question is,what does that look like?How can I take part in it ,in my daily routine and busy life schedule ?
“And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men” Matthew 4:19
Since, we are already following Jesus,the question is,how can we be fishing men for him? When we look at the Acts of the apostles, performing miracles; healing the sick and adding many to the kingdom was a lifestyle.I believe God still wants to do the same in our daily,and ordinary routine of life.
What does an evangelistic lifestyle look like?
- Firstly, we need to grasp the heart of God about all being saved,Secondly, we need to always aim to see his glory being revealed.Understanding these two things we will help us to understand the need to live an evangelistic lifestyle. We do not do it to feel good about ourselves but its a command that God has given us.We need to understand that the eternity of people is at stake.
- To live an evangelistic lifestyle we need to choose to live it everyday,walking with the Holy Spirit. We need to practice tuning to the Holy Spirit by asking him to show us needs around us and people we can reach out to.Its amazing how by being intentional through plodding God always draws my attention to people who he wants me to reach out to. By being in tune with that the Holy Spirit is saying God can give us a word of knowledge or even a prophetic word about someone.God is always in the business of drawing people to himself ,we just have to join him.
- We need to get out of our comfort zones,by starting conversations with people and always bringing Jesus into our conversations,looking for opportunities to share our testimonies and always praying for people we come into contact with.Lastly, trusting God that he will water and bring the seed sown into maturity.
In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” Luke 15:10
”The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9
