Do you have what you need? We’ve all had that question posed on occasion while striving to accomplish a duty or task.
What are the divine resources or raw materials necessary to accomplish the work of evangelism, you may wonder? Well, they include everything God has given us:
“His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue” (2 Peter 1:3).
Yes! We have everything we need.
Specifically, the main things’ pertaining ‘to life’ related to the evangelistic endeavor include the following:
The Word of God – “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God” (Romans 10:17)
The Gospel – “For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4).
The Holy Spirit – “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13)
Prayer – “Pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17)
We have all we need to do all God has called us to. We simply need to access those divine resources lavished on us, His children, and apply them in the evangelistic endeavor…for Jesus’ glory!
