1 Corinthians 9:19-22
Evangelism is the spontaneous overflow of a glad and free heart in Jesus Christ.
The Assignment We Must Accept: v. 19
Though I am free and belong to no man, I make myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible.
1. To love God . Matthew 22:37
Jesus replied: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.
2. To love God’s family . Matthew 22:38
This is the first and greatest commandment.
3. To love lost people. 2 Timothy 1:8
So do not be ashamed to testify about our Lord, or ashamed of me his prisoner. But join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God,
Being an extrovert isn=t essential to evangelismC obedience and love are.
Rebecca M. Pippert
The Message We Must Communicate: . 20-21
To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. 21To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God’s law but am under Christ’s law), so as to win those not having the law.
1. Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation. Acts 4:12
Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.
2. Jesus Christ loves the whole world. 2 Corinthians 5:14-15
For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. 15And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.
Evangelism is just one beggar telling another beggar where to find bread.
D. T. Niles
The Methods We Must Adopt: v. 22

Our business is to present the Christian faith clothed in modern terms.
