The Importance of Evangelism

by Larry Miles

Text: Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:15-16

Introduction: reaching the lost with the Gospel of Christ is of the utmost importance.  Jesus said in John 14:6;  "I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father expect through Me.". It is imperative that Christians be an evangelistic people!  The souls of the lost are in the balances, they are lost without Jesus.

We have been "called out of the dominion of darkness and have been conveyed into the kingdom of the Son of His love." (Col. 1:12-14)

Since we have found the marvelous light of the Gospel, we have the command, yea, privilege to help others lost in sin to find their way out of spiritual darkness.

According to Ephesians 2:8-10 we were "created unto good works.". We can't work our way to Heaven but once we have obeyed the Gospel, Christians need to be the best workers the Lord has.  "we have been saved through faith, in baptism unto good works."

What are some of the reasons Soul-winning is. Important?

Conclusion: Christians must be living in expectation of the return of the Blessed Hope (Titus 2:11-14). This passage, as well as others tell us how to live for the Lord.  There is a "Crown of Righteousness (2 Tim. 4:8) promised fir those who are looking for the Lord's coming nag living for Him while we are waiting.  We must be found, waiting, watching and working for our Master, "taking the Name of Jesus with us."
