How to Motivate Yourself and Others in Evangelism — banneroftruth.org — Readability: "Most of us, most of the time, have little or no zeal for intentional evangelistic outreach. We will talk about what is important to us. I live in Alabama and most of the people here have no trouble at all talking about their favourite football team. If you are around me for very long, I will tell you about my grandchildren or the Restoration Academy basketball team which my son Jeff coaches. So, why do we so seldom speak of Jesus to others? I realize you have a job to do, and your company has not hired you to evangelize the people in your office. I totally get that, and I also know we must be ‘wise as serpents and innocent as doves.’ There is a time and a place to bring up gospel issues, and work is probably not one of them. Having said that, however, surely you will agree with me that most in the American church are woefully negligent in publishing the glad tidings of great joy. Are we not largely guilty of the sin of omission in this regard?"
