我想这里的话语是篇不错的解答 关于evangelism, 关于 preaching

sharing the Gospel to complete strangers are definitely permissible and sometimes are necessary according to God’s Words. However, we need to also be aware of the whole context of the bible without neglecting a single small thin…g from it. In the context of Acts 3, we can see how Peter & John were performing an undeniable sign among the people. We can also see Jesus, who when He taught people, also performed many miracles (Refer to Matthew Chapter 4:23:25, 8:1-16 and many other passages in the bible). I know that we may not be able to perform miracles. But look at what Jesus said in Matthew 5:14 where Jesus taught us to do good so that others see our good deeds and glorify God in heavens. In Matthew 10:5-8, again, Jesus sent the 12 disciples to preach the Gospel and He commanded them to heal the sick, drive out demons, etc2. Acts 5:12 also specifies how apostles performed many miracles and wonders.

Seeing evangelism in this context, I reckon we should never just preach the Gospel without shining our Light in front of others. We may not have miracles yet, but we can shine our Light in many other ways and sometimes, doing small things means more than trying too hard. I think leave this part to God and be saturated with God’s words is the only thing that we can do to make us GENUINELY good. Otherwise, we might come across as someone who’s trying too hard and that is not good.

It will be different when someone is challenging the Words of God or asking questions. I think in here, we then definitely have the gates being opened in front of us and we should preach the Gospel as boldly as we can. Including preaching about hell and judgment and providing reasons why God created hell. But don’t stop at hell and judgment because that is only a part of the Gospel. When we are in argument with other people who are enquiring about Christianity, note this, the bible has the answers, it’s just that we may need to spend some time searching those answers. Refer to how the apostles are always prepared to provide answers whenever they stood in courts or assemblies of people. Read the whole book of Acts for this.

某人和我说 I like the night view of this city. Because it’s not too noisy, also not too quiet, just ok. I feel I am blessed here.
