In my last blog post, I focused on the spiritual gift of evangelist.
- Do you know your spiritual gifts?
Sadly, many Christians have never discovered, developed, or used their spiritual gifts.
- Isn’t it odd?
- The concept of spiritual gifts is unknown to many churches.
- Many churches where spiritual gifts are known, often follow the worldly concept of volunteers!
- Those with the gift of evangelist have the spiritual ability, given by the Holy Spirit, to share Christ with non-Christians.
- It should be their main focus.
- It should be their primary contribution to the ministry of the church.
- They should be continually discipling, (equipping) those who have the gift of evangelism through on-the-job training.
- All newcomers in the church should be invited to discover, develop, and use their spiritual gifts.
- On average, 10% of those new Christians will have the gift of evangelist.
Okay, that’s the 10% with the gift of evangelist.
What about the rest of us?
Those who don’t have the gift of evangelist, have the corresponding role.
A Christian role is a common lifestyle, a learned discipline, that corresponds to every spiritual gift.
For the gift of evangelist, the role is that of a witness:
- Every Christian, all the time. This is the subject of the next post: “You Are an I-Witness.”
