Quick Overview

“Go and make disciples.”

–Matthew 28:19, NET 

 

When it comes to spiritual gifts, where would the gift of “evangelism” fall on your list of the ones most desired? Are you one of those eager evangelists who just can’t wait to hit the streets, knock on doors, or shout it from the rooftop when it comes to sharing your faith? Or are you like the remaining ninety five percent of us who cringe at the thought of intentionally witnessing?

Author Karl Haffner believes that the declining witness of the average church member is cause for concern, and he addresses this issue by going back to the gospel commission and recasting it for twenty first century Adventists. Haffner admits evangelism has not always been on the top of his list either, but he is eager to help each of us—young or old—to understand how to reach people for Jesus.

Using stories—both personal and biblical—Haffner demonstrates that God can use even the most timid among us to bring His children home. Yes, He can use you and every evangelistic misfit out there to carry out His mandate: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19, NIV). So take heart, come on board, and explore Scripture to discover how God has uniquely gifted every one of us to accomplish what matters most to Him: reaching His kids for the kingdom.

As Christ-followers, sharing the good news is a privilege we all share. You can use your unique gifts, talents, and resources to change the world in Jesus’ name. So what are you waiting for? Let’s go!
