2. Depth of Character
“As we establish ourselves firmly in the 21st century, tent revivals and traveling evangelists have become things of the past. Taught in history classes and portrayed in movies, evangelism is often presented as an old school, out of style idea with little value or relevance in our fast paced, urban world. The reality is that social media platforms and trendy wall plaques are inundated with quotes preaching the idea of easy evangelism.
If we just live good enough lives we can forgo the conversation entirely and all the people around us will almost magically come to know Jesus through our good actions and selfless character. This style of evangelism is becoming more and more prevalent in a culture constantly looking for the fast track and simple fix. But if we believe God has called us to preach the gospel to all nations and all people we need to call the next generation back to a commitment of evangelism.”
