I was in a meeting yesterday which has to do with what my role will be after June 29th. The discussion was about evangelism – tools, techniques, strategy. I was there by invitation – as a courtesy – for there is a project that will fall under my supervision.
There were a few people on a conference call along with those of us in the room. One of the participants with great passion and energy gave a most articulate plea for soldiers and officers to be more fully engaged in evangelism – to see them living up to their covenants….to live to win souls.
We all agree. We all believe that that’s the ideal, the goal.
But I was left with a question. If the Christian Church, and especially individual Christians, are to be willing or active in speaking to others about the forgiveness Jesus offers, then is it a question of giving people tools? Or is it a matter of people being willing?
