What kind of evangelist are you? I'm getting ready for some time with friends and colleagues in Norway... and I've just made this graphic to talk about what kind of evangelist you might be.
- The don't offend silent type
- The yeller and screamer (sometimes yelling at the heathen, sometimes at the silent type)
- Chatty friends
- Media types
- And the category "other" that a lot of us fit into when we don't know what to do.
They probably all have their place - in the right context. And I suspect God calls different types of evangelists, just as He has created different types of people. And I do think some sort of evangelism is vital to the Christian life.
Matthew 28.16 Then the eleven disciples left for Galilee, going to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him—but some of them doubted!
18 Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. 19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations,[b] baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
Even the doubters had their place.
