Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

The Biggest Misconceptions About Evangelism

Recommended Posts

miconceptions_about_evangelism-300x128.j

Becky Pippert has traveled all over the world to talk about evangelism. She’s been surprised to find that, in every part of the world, the misconceptions people have about evangelism are always the same. Pippert, Gloria Furman, and Shar Walker (contributors to the new book Joyfully Spreading the Word) sat down to discuss misconceptions—and the truth—about evangelism.

Most commonly, people say they can’t evangelize because they feel inadequate. They think they don’t know enough or won’t be able to answer hard questions. Pippert dispels fears of inadequacy by pointing out that none of us is adequate to bring someone else to faith: “Recognizing our inadequacy is the first step to really being effective in witness.”

Some think that only a select few or only those “in ministry” have the gift of evangelism. But all of us are called to share the good news of salvation. Furman remarks, “A lot of our misconceptions could be addressed just by looking at what the Bible says about what evangelism actually is, and by looking at our Savior to see how he did it.”

You can listen to the episode here or watch the video.
