Making Evangelism a
Way of Life
Rev Chua Ooi Suah
From August this year,
the theme of the church is "Peace with the world." In order to equip
church members with the means to live out the intentions of the theme, the
church will be organising a series of activities to help members become better
evangelists in their daily lives.
First of all, it is
the desire of God that everyone will repent. This is reflected in 2 Peter 3:9 – “The Lord
is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead
he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come
to repentance.” Mediating on the love of God and desiring to live His will
should serve as the motivation for us to engage in evangelism.
Secondly, we must always
be steadfast and start from prayer. Only God has the power to change the lives
of people. To lead people to the Lord, we have to rely on God's help. The
church started the "Apple Tree" initiative as a means to remind
members of the need and power of prayer. The starting point of evangelism is
prayer, the process is also prayer, and the result is also subjected to prayer!
Thirdly, the church has
organised an evangelistic training session. We hope that every member attending
the session will recognize that we are all evangelists. Then, through training,
each member will master at least one evangelistic method that they can use to
assist them to share the word of God and live life in an evangelistic manner.
Simply said, the testimony of the believer's life is a living sermon.
