Have you heard the saying, “Preach the Gospel. Use words if necessary.” I wonder what Jesus would think about that statement?
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. Jesus is the one who gave us the Great Commission found in Matthew 28 verses 19 and 20. You know, “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel” and then in verse 20, “teaching them to obey all that I have commanded.” So, how do you “preach” and “teach” without words? Well, you can’t. You have to use words. And, you can’t share the Gospel by acts of kindness alone either. While the act is wonderful, it points no one to Christ. The Bible is clear that the Gospel must be spoken.
So, don’t fall for the popular sayings of our day. Look to the Word of God and share life with those in your sphere of influence. For help in knowing what to say, visit us at ShareLife.today. You can also watch a video that shows why the “silent witness” isn’t really a witness at all.
