The AIR of Evangelism

While attending the KBC annual meeting last week I heard a message from Cas McCaslin, founder of Upward Sports. He is so passionate about what he does, which is reaching kids with the Good News of Jesus Christ through sports ministries. He shared one particular tidbit of information that I found helpful. Its really not groundbreaking or unique. But it does provide a quick summary of what our attitude towards evangelism should be. Here it is:

A - Aware of the lost around us

I - Intentional in our efforts & actions

R - Ready when we encounter the lost

With that little primer in mind, evaluate what the "air" of evangelism is around your congregation or in your own life.

"But sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence." 1 Peter 3:15

[If you look closely here you can see me actively and enthusiastically participating in the KBC annual meeting.]
