Here is a very good measuring rod we should all consider in evangelism written by Pastor Tom Chantry:
Take a few minutes today to read the following written by Pastor Chantry to evaluate your own evangelism.
Perhaps you have a favorite tract you use in proclaiming the gospel; or maybe you just tend to follow a certain outline you have developed from the pages of God's Word. Think through all the issues raised in this post by Pastor Chantry's insightful questions:
1. Does my evangelism display the majesty of God, who is sovereign over all things? (Eph. 1:4-14; 2 Timothy 1:9; Romans 9:6-23)
2. Does my evangelism display the grace of God, who ever stands ready to save sinners? (Titus 2:11-13; Eph. 2:8-9; Romans 3:21-31)
3. Does my evangelism hit the hard facts dead on the nose: that men are sinners, and that God will punish sin with damnation? (Roms. 3:10-18; Eph. 2:1-3; Heb. 2:9-18)
4. Does my evangelism explain clearly the central points of the gospel: the death and resurrection of God the Son and the implications this has for sinners? (1 Cor. 15:1-21)
5. Does my evangelism call on men to turn away from sin and from self? (Matt. 7:12ff; 16:24-26)
6. Does my evangelism call men to faith in Christ as the only hope for sinners? (Roms. 3-4; Gal. 1:6-9)
Oh to practice evangelism like this... amen? These words are an encouragement to my own heart in ministry--may they be to yours as well.
