No Christian is immune from discouragement. If you don’t believe me, just read this biographical note from Paul, the Apostle. Maybe that’s one of the reasons God clearly commanded His people to “consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.” (Hebrews 10:24)
We hope these short ‘encouragement efforts’ spur you on toward the good deed of evangelism, with a heart of love.
- God did not really need our help rescuing people from their sin. He knew Jesus, the Slain Lamb, would fully pay their penalty and the Holy Spirit would convict them of their need for Christ. Yet he deliberately allowed the early followers of Jesus the privilege of laboring with him in the harvest field. It is an honor we still have today.
- You’ve just shared the most precious message your friend could hear. Deeply convinced of the reality of heaven and hell, and equally sure of everyone’s status before God on their own merits, you’ve carefully explained the truth of the gospel. Congratulations! You’ve done what God wants…the rest is up to Him.
- Jesus, following God’s plan to perfection, told the first disciples to pray for harvest workers. Every time we share the gospel, we’re an answer to their prayer.
