If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing? (1 Corinthians 12:17)
Have you ever noticed the person usually with the most enthusiasm for a project or assignment is the one who can do it the best? We have an evangelist come to our church to tell us all how to evangelize. They are
usually the best of the best. It would be like having Tiger Woods tell you how to hit a driver and then show you videos. Are you then going to be able to hit the ball like Tiger? No, not even if he takes you outside and teaches you everything he knows, you still will not hit the ball like Tiger. Tiger has a gift, and his gift makes things easy for him that are harder for you to do. I’ll bet you struggled to witness like the evangelist also. Have you ever thought, “maybe that is not my gift”. Have you ever asked the question, “What about us average non-gifted believers”? What are we to do?
Since becoming a Christian over 16 years ago I have been told repeatedly, “you need to fulfill the Great Commission”. How many times have you gone door to door? I have never read in the Bible where Jesus went door to door. (So why do we?) His fame, love or reputation brought the people to Him.
Feeling a little frustrated and maybe even a little guilty, I prayed for help to be a better witness. My goal was not to save the world, I wanted to be able to talk to friends and family about Jesus.
God gave me an idea over 6 years ago and it has changed my witnessing life forever. This idea was so simple, even I could do it. The first time I tried this simple idea, two people asked me about Jesus. Over the last 5 years I have told hundreds of people about Jesus and I still do not consider myself an “evangelist”.
If you have ever struggled with witnessing, we have discovered an amazing tool… your clothes. Clothes were invented by God to cover sin, (Gen 3:21)and God gave us a logo to use, to help tell people about Jesus. Here is the best part…you don’t have to say a word until someone asks you a question.
