³How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how
shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they
hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent?
As it is written: ³How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the
gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!²²
I- Why Should I witness?
1. God commanded us to do it
Acts 1:8: But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you;
and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria,
and to the ends of the earth.”
2. The Harvest is plentiful
3. It feels Great
4. It takes your mind off your own problems
5. Our Nation needs it.
II- Why We don¹t witness?
1. Fear of rejection:
2. Lack of confidence in your ability:
A- The Holy Spirit is still the same today as in the day of Pentecost
John 14:26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in
My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all
things that I said to you.
B- God still desires that All would come to know Him.
1 Tim. 2:3-4: For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our
Savior, 4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of
C- The Word of God is still Powerful and sharper than any two edged sword:
Heb. 4:12 ³For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than
any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and
of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of
3. I don¹t know enough:
4. No time
5. Don’t care enough
1 Cor. 2: 16 For ³who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct
Him?² But we have the mind of Christ.
lll- I’m not called to evangelism
Matthew 5:14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill
cannot be hidden.
15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lamp
stand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.
IV- I don¹t feel Holy enough and I continue to sin:
Romans 13:11-14 ³And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time
to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first
believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us
cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. Let
us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in
lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy. But put on the Lord Jesus
Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.
