Praying for the Fruit of Patience in Evangelism
Our human nature has always been impatient. It doesn’t require much effort. That’s why patience is referred to as a virtue or an art form. It takes practice.

How Evangelists Use the Law Before Proclaiming the Gospel
The gospel is the Good News of what Jesus Christ has already done for us. Jesus was crucified, buried, and rose again on our behalf. It is the power of the Holy Spirit working through the message of the gospel that creates faith in an unbeliever’s heart.
The saving work of the Holy Spirit can only work through the message of the gospel and not the law. However, the law does have a place in evangelism. When done with the attitude of love and proper discernment, the message of the law prepares hearts to receive the gospel message that Christ has done it all!
