White Doves

White DoveWe've reviewed the characteristics of evangelism and how they are applied, but where does the power come from to fulfill the evangelism mission? The Holy Spirit's quickening and gifts provide us with power for our ministry. When we offer ourselves into the service of the King, Jesus gives us back the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Acts 2.17-18 said, "In the last days, God says, 'I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy."

Tools and Gifts

ToolsGod sent his gifts to those set aside for the work of evangelism. With the work comes the tools for the job. Dr William Wallace Dawley (1874-1931) former Pastor of the Central Baptist Church in Syracuse wrote, "God gave Moses a rod, David a sling, Samson the jawbone of an ass. Deborah the talent for poetry, Dorcas a needle, and Apollos an eloquent tongue and to each the ability to use his gift. In so doing, every one of them did most effective works and used their Holy Spirit gifts for the Lord." The Lord provides!
