No Single Act

Here’s something I’ve been thinking about…

No single act in the Christian life is as dangerous as evangelism. Bible study, prayer and attending church are not dangerous, they are disciplines. But when you actually open your mouth to proclaim the gospel to someone you risk some kind of loss. In some countries that could be your life. But in America it is most likely your reputation, a relationship or maybe even a pending promotion. When you share the gospel, even in a loving way, you could be subjecting yourself to mockery or, at the very minimum, alienation by co-workers, classmates, family or friends. When you proclaim Christ’s controversial message to those you know you are picking up your cross in a visceral and vocal way. You are that proving you are willing to die to that relationship, if need be, so that that person can hear and have the opportunity of being transformed by the gospel. Now that is dangerous and that is evangelism.
