The Positive Impact on Doing Less in Evangelism

The best leadership advice I received this year is this axiom: “Do Less Then Obsess.” This transforming thought came from the book, “Great at Work” by Morten T. Hansen. It challenges business leaders to destroy the prevailing wisdom of what makes a great worker by providing statistical support on a radically different mindset. The common denominator that separated great workers from the rest is that they discipline themselves to focus on a few key activities — then obsess over them. This wisdom could be applied for Christian believers who desire to share the message of salvation with others. Read More

Confronting the “What if?” questions in evangelism

Doubt breeds a distracted heart. Whims supersede trust in God’s promises. Questions lend to inactivity — especially when it’s something we know the Lord wants believers to do.

When God commissions us to go out into the world and proclaim the gospel, have you found yourself asking:

“What if I don’t know what to say?”

“What if I just don’t want to do it?”

It is comforting to know that an important figure in the Old Testament wrestled with the same doubts and excuses when God commissioned him to carry out an important task.

God does provide a solution to confront the “What if?” questions in evangelism. It’s based on trust. Read More
