Making Evangelism a Part of Your Daily Life

In an effort to make evangelism a part of my daily life, I try to hand out tracts at EVERY opportunity.  I try to pass out tracts when I go out to eat or go shopping or anywhere you find people.  I’ve noticed that I’ve been able to give away a very large amount of tracts when I go grocery shopping or go to Costco.  I’d go in with a stack perhaps an inch thick and come out with almost none left.

So, today, I decided to keep a running count as I went to Target to pick up a few items.  I bought only 5 items but I was able to give away 32 of the Trillion-Dollar tracts.

I had two notable encounters.  The first was a woman who was clearly a born-again Christian.  I gave her a Trillion-Dollar tract and she was very grateful and supportive.  She seemed to have a heart for reaching out to the lost so I gave her one of my Systematic tracts.  A few minutes after we parted ways, she found me again and asked for more of both tracts.  I gave her a number of them.  For counting purposes, I counted her as only one tract.  In reality, she will be passing out a number of tracts to people I will likely never meet.  Praise God.

The second encounter was another Christian woman.  She’s new to the area and it turns out she has been going to my Church, Calvary Chapel South Bay.  She loves the preaching and wasn’t sure if she was supposed to go to that Church.  Based on our encounter, she now thinks she knows where God wants her to worship.

I would estimate that the act of passing out tracts delayed me a whole 5 minutes.  Not bad for handing out 32+ tracts.  Evangelism doesn’t have to be some major undertaking.  You can simply go about your life and give out the words of life wherever you happen to be.  You’ll probably reach more people that way than going out evangelizing once a week for an hour.  Note that I am NOT against going out intentionally with your brothers and sisters in the Lord.  I just think we should make our whole lives missional, 24-7.

So others can see how easy and casual this can be, I am planning on having my friend Jason follow me around with a video camera as I shop somewhere.  I hope to have the video available next week; God willing.

You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. ~ Deuteronomy 6:5

The Heavens Declare The Glory of God

This video is great to share with non-Chrsitians and will strengthen the faith of believers.  It can fill you with awe and a deeper love for God.

Systematic Gospel Tract

Please see the attached new Gospel Tract.  Click on the picture for the complete 8-page PDF.

Here’s an e-mail from a fellow evengelist the morning after it was first used in the field on Friday, September 16, 2011:

Hey brother, sorry so early but I need to tell you that these new tracts really were used by the Lord last night. People were really drawn to the bold questions on each page. Great conversation starters. We tried to speak to people first and if they were open then we gave them one. Lol one woman, as she read one of the inside pages, laughed and said “thats a good question, where will I go when I die?” She ended up praying with us to receive christ, her and her friends with her. God used those tracts bro and all the glory to him. I just wanted to share the praise report with you.

God bless
Saul

The following week, I spoke to the evangelist who handed out the tract in the above incident.  A total of 4 people prayed to receive Christ all at once.  Praise God!

Important Video!

Please watch and share this very important video on abortion.

Jason’s Sketchboard Evangelism

This is a great way to draw a crowd to do open air preaching.  Please watch Jason of Let Down Your Nets share the Gospel with a crowd at 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica.

Here’s a link if you want to learn to do this and order supplies:

Although Jason is an Engineer, he will use art to share the Gospel.

1 Corinthians 9:22
…I have become all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.

Is America REALLY a Christian Nation?

So many people call themselves Christian but their beliefs are in direct contradiction to Jesus’ teachings.  Allie and Sophie both told me that they were Christians after I turned the camera off at the end of the interview.  But, listen to what they say about heaven and hell and God.

Matthew 7:21-23
Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

I don’t want the above passage to apply to anyone.  Please pray for these young ladies.

Grace and peace,
Tony

This Message Will Change Your Life

Please share this great video with your unbelieving friends and family.

Free Real Estate

Yes, there’s free real estate … inside the mall.  According to LivingWaters.com, malls are required by law to provide free public access in the form of a space large enough to set up a table for non-profit causes.  I intend to find out for myself if this is true.  I’m going to try to set up a table for evangelism inside one of our local malls and I’ll report back with the results.  Meanwhile, please check out the video and see if you can do the same where you live.

So, I encourage you to go on the offensive and take ground (real estate) for the Lord.

Joshua 1:3
Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you, as I said to Moses.

Deuteronomy 11:24
Every place on which the sole of your foot treads shall be yours…

I want to thank my friend Jason at Let Down Your Nets for bringing this to my attention.

Grace and peace,
Tony

Apologetics Desperately Needed

Higher education is dangerous to your faith.  Every Christian student going on to university or college should become proficient in apologetics.  Strike that.  Every Christian should become proficient in apologetics.

1 Peter 3:15
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear;

Grace and peace,

Tony
