street evangelism and THE cause

March 11th, 2010

We went to Dare 2 Share a few weekends ago.  It was incredibly good.  The new format was really good.  I liked the fact that there wasn’t a “concert” this year.  There was in the sense that DJ Promote was there but it wasn’t like a concert.  This year Greg talked about THE CauseTHE Cause is simply The Great Commission renamed.  Why rename something holy and Biblical?  Because a few hundred years ago missionaries coined the term ‘the great commission’ to help mobilize people for evangelize their friends and those around them.   That’s right – those headings in your Bible weren’t inspired by God.  They were put there by men (along with the chapter numbers and verses) to make it easier to read and find things.  So the people at D2S re-labeled The Great Commission to THE Cause.  Today causes are all over Facebook.  You can now join a cause for anything – and people are.  I am constantly getting invites for a TON of worthless causes.  But what about THE Cause?  How are we doing with THE Cause - Jesus is the Christ…the saving One?

Last Friday I sent out a text to our students asking if someone wanted to go do some street evangelism with me.  I ended up taking two guys and we had a great time.  All in all we got to witness to 3 different people.  We found out one was a believer and the others were not.  While they didn’t except Christ on the spot they are actively searching out the truth of the Gospel.  That’s so great to see.

Last night one of our 7th grade guys came up to me and said,

“Hey see the new girl that came?  I want to go share the Gospel with her.  Come with me!”

So we went over and I got sidetracked by people pulling em aside to talk about some different things.  He came back over and let me know he thought she was wanting to accept Christ on the spot.  So I went over and started talking to her and she realized her need for a Savior.  So I lead her through the Gospel as a refresher and and lead her through the prayer.  What was really cool about it was seeing one of our students stepping out in faith to begin the conversation of the Gospel with someone.  It takes a lot of guts to throw the Gospel out there.  There’s always a risk of rejection.  Fortunately God had something else in store for him last night.

We devoted our night to THE Cause last night.  We are desperately trying to mobilize our teens to go the distance with the Gospel for THE Cause.  How are YOU doing at going the distance with the Gospel for THE Cause?
