ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNER

Posted: December 29, 2021 in Evagelism, Gospel, Repentance, Resurrection, Salvation

Evangelist Dr. R. Larry Moyer, founder and CEO of EvanTell, made a great suggestion: “If you want to have one of the greatest New Years you have ever had, instead of coming up with a New Year’s resolution, adopt a New Year’s accountability partner in evangelism – a person who asks you every month, ‘How have you reached out to a non-Christian with the gospel in the last 30 days?’ You will be amazed at the healthy impact that will have on your evangelism and will wish you had done it sooner.”

He has written a Gospel tract: “May I Ask You A Question?” that includes “Bad News & Good News” and simple illustrations that you could memorize and use as you witness to others. Or you could secure and distribute this tract to others. You might want to attach the video presentation of this tract to someone: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nUe9ZgADBNQ

The Lord is counting on true Christians to be His witnesses (Acts 1:8). Having your known sins confessed to God the Father and to others when it’s necessary (1 John 1:9; See also James 5:16), and as you are being led by God the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:14), share the Gospel clearly with others as God opens doors for you (Revelation 3:8). Don’t let the devil intimidate you (2 Timothy 1:7; 1 Peter 5:8). Use the armor of God to overcome his temptations (Ephesians 6:10-17).

Dr. Moyer also wrote: “Three things have to be explained to an unbeliever to make salvation clear: (1) Sin – so they understand their need, (2) Substitution – so they understand His remedy, and (3) Faith – so they understand their response. We do great in explaining the first two but we drop the ball on the third. John 6:47 says, ‘Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me has everlasting life.’ Believe means to TRUST IN CHRIST ALONE to save us. We ought not use phrases and wording that confuses people.” [1]

The Gospel for our salvation includes not only Christ’s death for our sins, but also His bodily resurrection from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:3, 4). Without His resurrection, we have no hope (1 Corinthians 15:12-19). Don’t leave it out of the Gospel presentation as many people do.

To receive other helpful ideas from him, become his friend on Facebook and secure some of the books he’s written. [2]

God gave Evangelists to the Church to help us be better witnesses for Christ. They are like obstetricians who deliver babies. Pastor-teachers are like pediatricians who help in the development of children (Ephesians 4:11-16). By all of us Christians working together we can accomplish much more.

We’re here to assist those who are teachable and willing to change (2 Timothy 2:2, 15; 3:16, 17). We can be reached through our website: www.kelseypeach.com.
