Evangelism: What to Expect when you Evangelize
Christians need to understand what to expect when they evangelize. Sometimes we may think that if Jesus came back on earth and preached, like He did in the first century, we would see revival. That may happen. But, to be sure, everyone would not be saved. In fact we should expect that if Jesus came back and preached like He did in the first century that He would be killed at the hands of men. Non-Christians hate God and Jesus. If they rejected the preaching of Jesus, they will most certainly reject us and our preaching. When we evangelize we should expect rejection. The Bible confirms this. However, even though we should expect rejection, we should also expect some to repent and believe the gospel and be saved. When we have an understanding of this it will help keep us from discouragement and also help keep us from changing God’s message to get “better” results.
