I’m pretty sure you all have heard of an evangelist by now but not many of you may know exactly what an evangelist actually is so let me explain. Most evangelist you will not find on the TV although it has been a method before. An Evangelist is simply one who is called to preach the story of Jesus Christ and His purpose for Jesus on earth.
Are Evangelising and Evangelist Similar ?
The two word though similar in meaning and purpose are two different things. For instance an Evangelist is someone who evangelizes because they feel called to do that by God and they have a strong zeal to do so.
Evangelism and Who Is Called To Evangelize?
18 Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. 19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations,[a] baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
– Matthew 28:18-20
This verse is known as the Great Commission, and with that being said this is where we get our call as average everyday followers of Christ to go out and tell people about Jesus and what he came to do for us. With this being said we are all called to evangelize but not all of us carry the gifting of an Evangelist as evangelist are often picked by God and given the tools to evangelize to people like their life depends on it
Everyone is called to evangelize one way or another. That leaves me with this final closing statement. Will you answer the call to speak to someone about Christ or will you just be another percentage in “Couch Potato Christianity”.
