Jesus Christ

Christ Centered TreeA delegate to a Church Army conference once stated stunningly, "There are three wonderful things in life to me. Jesus Christ is wonderful, people are wonderful, and bringing them together is most wonderful of all." Wikipedia defines Christian evangelism as, "In Christianity, evangelism is the commitment to or act of publicly preaching (ministry) of the Gospel with the intention of spreading the message and teachings of Jesus Christ." We need Christian evangelism in order to be effective in our Christianity. Sharing ideas seems to be the "in-thing" in many of our churches. Committees, subcommittees, groups and subgroups are extensively organized to find out what people think about this or that, whatever that may be. On the other hand, there is a lot of misinformation and ignorance that can muddy the waters. Useful conclusions can be reached and much new information may be gained and propagated by this process. This can in no way be a substitute for actually doing! Remember that discussion is not evangelism nor is Christian public relations evangelism either! Isaiah 9:6 reads, "For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." We note that "Wonderful Counselor" may be equally translated as "Wonderful" "Counselor." Jesus is indeed Wonderful as well as the Counselor! Christian evangelism means bringing people and God together and this is indeed a wonderful thing in God's sight!
