Scripture: Col 4:2-6

The Church of today has a choice: either we evangelize or we fossilize.

“Each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who are being saved” Acts 2:47

That refers to ongoing-outgoing daily evangelism. This type of evangelism should become a natural thing in our church.

Desire: Where desire arises opportunity follows. Great results come where desire, opportunities and abilities match.

In Colossians, Paul from prison exhorts that every Christian should be involved in evangelism. Every Christian should be prayerful and watchful for grabbing evangelistic opportunities. Here he talks about 2 requests and 2 charges.

  • to share gospel clearly


  • Live wisely and multiply the chances to share gospel

  • Conversation be always full of grace in order to share gospel to everyone

Pray, Care, Share is one of the evangelism methods. The goal is to create natural relationships with people in our life and then find a way to tell them how Christ has changes you. The process begins by choosing someone you want to introduce to Christ, then praying for discernment, direction and love towars that person. Social researchers say that each human being will have a contact circle of minimum 75 people. He people with whom we were in touch, who are presently in touch and whom we want to be in touch.
