Have you ever considered what Jesus’ best tool of outreach is?
Perhaps its the latest book on witnessing for Jesus off Amazon. Or maybe its that powerful evangelist that you once heard. All such answers are plausible.
But when we really stop and think about it, Jesus final commission is an outreach that doesn’t really involve events or tools. But rather, it requires PEOPLE. People who are willing to follow Jesus so much, that they end up looking and living more like Him. People like you and me.
Just as God asked who will go for Him, Isaiah responded by saying “here I am, send me” (Is 6:8).
All of a sudden, Jesus’ most effective form of outreach gets very personal. And that’s because He’s talking about us, and anyone who wants to take Him seriously.
“The world needs today what it needed nineteen hundred years ago–a revelation of Christ.” (Ministry of Healing, p143).
Be that revelation today. Be Jesus’ greatest sermon or outreach that your community has ever known.
With love and prayer
