Many Christians struggle with the belief that they are not good enough to evangelize, or share their faith with others. They may feel that they need to have a certain level of knowledge, skills, or personal qualities in order to be effective in evangelism. However, this belief is often based on a misunderstanding of what it means to be an evangelist and the role that we play in sharing the gospel.
First, it is important to recognize that evangelism is not about us. It is not about our own knowledge, skills, or personal qualities. Rather, it is about the message of the gospel and the power of the Holy Spirit to transform lives. As Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 2:4-5, “My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.”
Moreover, the Bible makes it clear that it is not our job to save people. That is the work of God, who is the only one who can bring people to faith (John 6:44). Our role in evangelism is simply to be faithful in sharing the message of the gospel and to trust in God to work through us and bring people to faith.
So, if you feel that you are not good enough to evangelize, remember that it is not about you. It is about the message of the gospel and the power of the Holy Spirit. And, it is not your job to save people, but rather to be faithful in sharing the message of the gospel and trusting in God to do the rest.
Additionally, it is important to remember that we are all called to evangelize, not just a select few. In Matthew 28:19-20, Jesus commands His followers to “go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” This command is given to all believers, not just a select few.
Furthermore, God has equipped each of us with unique gifts and talents that can be used in evangelism. In 1 Peter 4:10, we are told that “each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” We may not all have the same gifts or abilities, but we can all use what we have been given to share the gospel with others. So, don’t let the belief that you are not good enough to evangelize hold you back. Remember that it is not about you, but about the message of the gospel and the power of the Holy Spirit. And remember that we are all called to evangelize and that God has equipped us with unique gifts and abilities that can be used in this important work.
