Are you gifted as an Evangelist?

Has the Holy Spirit given you the ministry gift of Evangelist? It is minister to non-Christians by bringing them the good news of Jesus Christ.

 

IN THE BIBLE

 

Ephesians 4:11-13. He gave some to be apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, shepherds and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, to the work of serving, to the building up of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a full grown man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.

evangelists. The Greek word is εὐαγγελιστάς (“euangelistas”). In general, it means a bringer of good news, a bearer of glad tidings. In our context, it means a person who is especially gifted to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to non-Christians.

 

WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

Every Christian is called to the ministry of evangelism. We refer to it as one of the Five Key Ministries. We are all called to speak with non-Christians about Jesus Christ. And most of us sort of plod along, doing it when we can muster the courage, and achieving a level of effectiveness that might be termed “unremarkable.”

And that’s good enough. We’re only called to be obedient disciples.

But if you have the gift of Evangelist, you can’t wait for another chance to talk with a non-Christian about Jesus Christ. You live for it. And you are surprisingly effective at it.

Do not interpret this gift to mean the ordained. An ordained person might (or might not) have this Ministry Gift.

 

HOW ABOUT YOU?

 

Does the prospect of evangelism get you excited? Do non-Christians welcome your words about Jesus Christ?.

If so, you may well have this gift!
