How Many?

How many people did you bring to Christ yesterday, today, this week, this month, this year? Did you ever wonder what the fruit is you’re supposed to be bearing as a Christian? The fruit we bear and how we are recognized is the people we bring to Christ the Bible is full of this type of imagery Jeremiah 17:8. In the book of Hosea the prophet says if only Israel would do what’s right, Hosea 10:12, in other words get busy doing what is right, right now!

Jesus said of false prophets by their fruit you will know them Matthew 7:16 and he goes on to show that good comes from good bad from bad. In order to fully understand this we need to look at the whole teachings of Jesus from the Sermon on the Mount, thematically Matthew 5:1-7:29.

The greatest problem that I can see is that we as Christians are always making excuses why we can’t evangelize instead of looking at how we can. There are many ways to evangelize as I covered in the ABC’s of Evangelism. But which way would work best for you? Why not use the way Jesus did the way a salesperson sells is very similar to how Jesus told others who he was and why they must believe. He related then created an opportunity to convict and then revealed himself.

I use The Way of the Master personally because I see its fruit almost daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly. I taught my kids this method by first having a competition on who could remember the Ten Commandments in order. We gave prizes to them for doing the work of memorizing them in order 1-10 We posted up the Ten commandments for Kids in their rooms, the living room and kitchen. We found this through Ray comfort’s ministry Living Waters. We have helped to save kids and whole family's in our neighborhood through this method. It works if you as a family are all on the same page and practice together. It also helps to lead by example to show your kids it works the ripples start slow then reach out beyond our limits. If a child can understand it you can too! Here it is below;

Print these off and use them like a presentation but don't forget to memorize them, practice on every one of your family and friends. Then try other people you know in your neighborhood, workplace, school and extracurricular activities. You can do it pray before you start each time.

The Way of the Master


The Lord bless and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up his countenance upon you,
And give you peace.
