TEXT: MATTHEW 28:18-20
(18) And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
(19) Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
(20) Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
KEY VERSE: 1 Corinthians 1:8
Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Evangelism is taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ to sinners to make them repent of their sins and to believe in Jesus, for a new life of righteousness and holiness that will qualify them to serve God on earth, and inherit eternal life after death or during the rapture. What then is the message of evangelism? It is not that onetime thing you tell somebody or that one thing you say and he becomes a member. It is a continuous thing. For a soul to have been evangelized, he must have left the earth and entered Heaven. It is then God will say he has been evangelized. It is then the soul winner will receive reward. So, you are still being evangelized. Evangelism is going on with you, even on myself. God is still doing works of evangelism for us because we have not entered into Heaven yet.
When do you say you trained up your child in the school? Is it when he enters into the university and the last year he was driven out because he didn’t make his paper? Will you say you trained your child? No. When will you say you trained your child in the secondary school? Is it when he enters the secondary school and does not get certificate because he became a bad boy in school and is sent home? Is it then you have trained a child? No. It is when a child finishes with a certificate.
So how do you say you evangelized a man who doesn’t make Heaven? How will you say you evangelized a woman who backslides on the way? You did evangelism but the person has backslidden? Your service is a waste as long as that person is not perfected and does not continue in the Lord. That is why Paul cried to the Philippian Christians.
That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: A soul is fully evangelized when he has entered Heaven.
SONG FOR THE DAY: When the battle is over, I shall wear a crown…
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: Psalm 90-92; Romans 11:1-21
