Series Shine—I Can Evangelism

Most of us are more than willing to share the love we have personally experienced in our relationship with Jesus. But how? We imagine scary scenes of evangelism and tons of I Can’ts pop into our minds. But just one tiny light changes the very nature of darkness when we choose to shine in our every day living before others. “Shining” means moving from the I Can’ts to the I Cans of sharing our faith.

Part 1 - 09/08/14

Discover your God-given potential

Typically, we consider evangelists to be super-Christians. They’re the ones leading thousands to faith in stadiums or traveling across the world to share the gospel. How every believer is gifted to be a successful evangelist.

Part 2 - 09/09/14

How we all can shine the light of Christ!

A spotlight can illuminate a stadium. A flashlight may only brighten a small patch of ground. But regardless of the scope or magnitude, both still light up the darkness! Let’s discuss how there may be varying degrees of giftedness, but we all can shine the light of Christ!

Part 3 - 09/10/14

Part 7 - 09/16/14

How understanding the progression of faith helps us lead others down that same path!

Part 8 - 09/17/14

Seeing a needy world in a new way

The actions and attitudes of an unbelieving world can be shocking at times. The behavior of unbelievers shouldn’t surprise us. God doesn’t ask people to behave in order to belong.

Part 9 - 09/18/14

Discover the power of friendship

God calls all of us to share the gospel. Thankfully, we don’t have to go to seminary, stand on the street corner, or fill stadiums in order to answer that call! Let’s discuss a simple way of reaching others for Christ.

Part 10 - 09/19/14

Part 15 - 09/26/14

A powerful way to share the gospel, without even saying a word

Part 16 - 09/29/14

How embracing doubt can actually lead people to embrace the Savior!

Part 17 - 09/30/14

One of the most important ways God reveals Himself to us, and to others

Part 19 - 10/02/14

Part 20 - 10/03/14

Living the gospel, so that others can see Christ

Sweaty palms and a knot in the stomach. That’s the reaction many of us have when it comes to sharing our faith. Let’s take the fear and worry out of evangelism. We don’t need to shout the gospel from the street corner to be a powerful witness.
