White Doves Flying

White Dove flyingWe've reviewed the characteristics of evangelism and how they were applied, but where did the power come from to fulfill the 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, "'This is what I will do in the last days,' God says, 'I will pour out my Spirit on everyone. Your sons and daughters will proclaim the message, your young men will see visions, and your old men will have dreams. Yes, even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will proclaim my message.'"

Tools and Gifts

ToolsGod set his gifts to those set aside for the work of evangelism. With the work came the tools for the job. Dr William Wallace Dawley (1874-1931) 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!✞
