Since there are two ways to learn, the easy way and the hard way, I would like to show you the easy way to become an Evangelist and that is to read this wonderful book by Ptarick Sullivan, Dare to be an Evangelist. This is a forty day program that takes at most a couple of minutes a day and before you know it you will be able to Evangelize in a Powerful way, a patient way, a loving way, instead of shoving your faith you will proclaim it by your actions, by your prayers, by your joy. I would like to share one of my favorite days so you can get a great idea of how wonderful this book is:
Day 4: ReBuild the Relationship
If this person you are evangelizing is already in your life then there is a good chance that there is some kind of relationship still intact. It might be battered and bruised or it might be going fine, but on a more superficial level. Whatever the current state, the point is to make the relationship stronger and healthier. The key word here is friendship. The fastest and most effective way to evangelize is to have authentic friendships. If your friend knows that you love him, then you have pretty good chance at being heard. If your friend knows that you love him, then you can challenge him to grow and seek what is best. God is the best for him, but it will take a friend to show the path that leads to Him.
Well as you can tell this advice would have helped me so much 20 years ago when I was destroying my friendship with my newfound faith that I beat my friend over the head with. I pray and hope that you get this amazing book and read it and follow all the recommendations as you will find your witness going faster, farther, and more deeply than ever before. You will Evangelize the World! God bless you and God Bless Patrick for writing this amazing book:
