Why Is It Important To be Involved In Evangelism & Missions?

  • It Is A Command From The Lord. Jesus gave the Great Commission and  has  entrusted with us the privilege of soul-winning.
  • It Is In The Plan of God (2 Peter 3:9) We see the patience and  long-suffering of God in this passage (Praise God! For if He was  not  patient, none of us would be  here today as   saved believers in the Risen Lord). God  desires that all be  saved and  has provided through Jesus the way ot salvation–but we   know that many will not  accept Him. People are lost  without Christ.
  • If We Are Saved, We Will Want To Help Others Find Him! We have been called out of  darkness into the marvelous light of the Gospel (Col. 1:12-14).  Because we have   found the light, we  must help others (Evangelism and Missions) find the Light–start where you are. Missions are  both individual and  corporate, local and  world-wide.  We  must let our light  shine in a way that will bring God  glory (Matthew 5:16).
  • Jesus Is Coming Again! We have the  promises throughout the New Testament  that He is personally  coming back for us. This should be a  motivation for us  to be  involved in soul-winning and  missions. How shoud the fact that Jesus coould come at any  moment motivate us? We must be ready at all times and  be  active in His service. We  must  be  found seeking the  lost and  strengthing the saved. The More we learn about Jesus and  His Church and His Word, the  mroe  we will be  misison-minded. Christianity is a  here and  now religion (Titus 2:11-14). While we  watch and  wait for His  coming, we  must be active in His  service, thus, we will be  involved in  Missions and Evangelism!
