“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them
in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit” - Matthew 28:19
Pastor-Preacher- Minister-Missionary- Church Planter: If you are not actively sharing the Gospel message with those around- not just those in the church, not just from the pulpit- but in your everyday life then you are disobedient. How can you expect God to bless your ministry or grow your church if you refuse to be obedient to this simple command? How can you expect to escape God’s judgment?
As pastors often times we are so given to the non-essentials. We will worry over so many little things. We will concern ourselves with so many administrative and organizational issues all to the neglect of the greater good. In the case of evangelism, it is not merely “greater good” but a direct command. We want church growth and the vast majority of any growth we see is a person joining our Church from another congregation. Although this grows our church none are added to the Kingdom of God.
“Do the work of an evangelist- go make disciples”
