How to Reach Your Neighbors, 3 of 6

Continuing from my first two posts, as we remember the gospel, here is another reason why all believers are called to joyfully share God’s plan of redemption with the lost world: a love for the Lord. 

Have you ever considered this? Evangelism is a way we are able to express our love for God in a way we won’t be able to in heaven. What a joy that He allows us to do that! What a joy to do that as a part of our purpose in life--to glorify God! 
The goal of a believer’s life is to glorify God. Everything exists for His glory!

So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 
(1 Corinthians 10:31) 

So whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to please him. 
(2 Corinthians 5:9) 

For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.
(Romans 11:36) 

Our salvation is for His glory!
he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. (Ephesians 1:5-6)
God is glorified in the gospel. It is the believer’s great joy to glorify God by sharing Him with others. Who was instrumental in your receiving Christ? Who in your life is not saved? Write a name down right now and start/continue to pray for them.

Now that we have laid groundwork for why believers should want to tell others about the gospel, my next posts will be some ideas in which to do so. One method is using the holiday of Halloween in redemptive way.

More soon. Take care...
