3 Reasons to Do the Hard Thing of Evangelism

3

I’ve been there. One of the hardest parts of being a Christian is evangelism. We live in a broken world with broken people, whose only solution is Christ. We’re around unbelievers every single day, but we routinely act as if the hour is not at hand, as if we have our eyes set on the here and now and not on what’s above. We hide our light under a lampstand and create lies in our head that...

The Room by Joshua Harris

May the beauty of salvation embrace you, may your need for Christ capture you, and may the power of the Cross overwhelm you. For information on the authorship of “The Room” please click here.

Jesus Wants the Rose

J

A powerful reminder that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. NOTE: Some readers have expressed concern with the fact that Matt Chandler says something about the church being an “enemy of conversion.” Outside the context of the complete message it could come across as if the Chandler (and subsequently, Alex and I) are promoting an anti-church perspective. That is absolutely...

The Great Rescue

T

The following is excerpted from our big brother Josh’s book, Boy Meets Girl. Why the Cross? Because sinners have no other hope. Why the Cross? Because it is the unassailable proof that we can be forgiven. Let’s gaze on it together. As we draw close, don’t assume that you already know or understand what happened there. Come to the Cross as if for the first time. In the book When...

Powerful Gospel Skit

P

We have seen many evangelistic skits but this gospel skit is special. Please take the time to watch it and then share it with family and friends. If you are not a Christian please take this opportunity to understand what Jesus Christ offers you. If you have already experienced the saving power of Christ, be reminded and inspired and moved to tears all over again. May God bless you all! UPDATE: Is...

Do Hard Things and the Gospel

D

In the comments section of a previous post, readers Jon and Sarah both asked the question: How does the ‘do hard things’ motto relate to or derive from the gospel? This post is our humble attempt to answer that question. Brett and I know we have touched on aspects of this question in various posts and comments in the past, but we realize that we have never fully addressed it in a...

Stop and Think: Online Video Evangelism

S

One of our readers, Andrea, alerted us to this excellent evangelistic video by Think Inc., a small Christian film company based in Southern California. This team of like-minded men and women have accomplished what is far too rare among Christian filmmakers, successfully integrating high-end quality with an engaging and powerful presentation of the gospel. Their work is the kind we pray that...

Religion in America: The Four Gods

R

The Baylor University Religion Study, believed to be the most-detailed study of American religion ever undertaken, released a report on Monday that is making headlines in newspapers across the country and causing waves in the blogosphere. This study serves as both a reminder and an opportunity for Christians to engage the culture in a needed dialogue on issues of faith and salvation. To that end...
