Just a little moment of celebration; today is Evangelism Action’s first birthday.
We hope that this blog can be a souce of inspiration and encouragment for the work of evangelism in the time that the Lord allows us to continue.
If you are a frequent ‘commentor’ or visitor – thanks for your friendship and interest in what we have to say.

Get excited – we are in the final stages of developing two new gospel tracts. The ‘Choose your own adventure tract’ is a highly thought provoking tract that challenges the reader with the urgency of the gospel. Another tract ‘The Family Values’ tract questions where we get our values from? This tract will connect well with the Jesus All About Life ad campaign currently running in our state. Well done to Georgie and Angela. They have been working furiously on these tracts this week.
Keep you posted.

Well done everyone who had the patience to wait the extra week for this step!
I liked this week, it was short but to the point. Basically it was around figuring out who we know who isn’t saved and thinking about what we can do to witness to them. I especially liked that we were encouraged not to wait for a friendship to develop. Yeah! As most of us know really, if you wait for a friendship to develop, it gets harder to witness and share your faith, not easier.
When we are saved we are freed to serve (1 Cor 9 :19-23 & 10:31-11:1, Gal 5:13-14). The best service we can offer to those we know or meet is to witness to them.

What a great study today, once again. Texts were Titus 3:3-8, 1 Corinthians 3:5-9 and Acts 4:8-31. All about prayer in evangelism, God’s role in the person of the Holy Spirit and our role as announcers of the gospel.
We had a young christian in our group who missed last week’s study on the basics of the gospel, so we got into a few areas of fundamental doctrine. Lots and lots of questions, followed by our best efforts to explain things like election and the trinity, and how repentance is not a work that leads to our salvation but a response to what Jesus has done.

I was very impressed with the second step in the Six Steps to Talking About Jesus series we are doing at bible study. Today’s step was UNDERSTAND, and it was all about making sure everyone had a good understanding of the gospel. Accompanied by an excellent gospel presentation. Loved it.
Isn’t the gospel of our Lord just amazing???? Read Ephesians 2:1-10. Loved it. Read 2 Corinthians 5:10-21 again. Loved it again. I know, using the L word a lot. It was just great to revisit the gospel in a group where everyone had a firm understanding of it, we were all in awe afresh of what God has done.
This approach to discussing the gospel uses four R’s (based on the Ephesians reading), Rebellion (Eph 2:1-3); Rescue (Eph 2:4-5); Resurrection (Eph 2:6-7) and Response (Eph 2:8-10). Read the rest of this entry »
