Understanding Evangelism: Barriers to Evangelism

2 Timothy 1:7 NKJV
7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
One of the barriers that keeps may people from evangelism is FEAR.
We are afraid of what people will think about us.
We are afraid that we do not know enough bible verses.
We are afraid that we might be rejected.
We are afraid that we may be asked questions that we have no answers to.
We are afraid that we cannot articulate the message of the gospel, and the list goes on.
God has not given us a spirit of fear, the devil is the one who uses fear to cause us to freeze and do nothing.
As believers, we must recognize that fear is just a smoke screen, and it has no real power over us. We have been given the Holy Spirit to empower guide and help us win souls for the kingdom.
Peter was afraid, and he denied Jesus, but when the Holy Spirit came upon him, he launched out and preached a message that hot 3000 people saved.
You and I have the same Holy Spirit. Like Peter, we must make the move and launch out the Holy Spirit is waiting.
Reflections.
What’s your greatest fear in life? Have you ever asked yourself why?
What about evangelism makes you hold back? How do you break free from that?
What’s your plan to launch out today to share the Hood News with at least one person? Will you do it?
