1 or 1 million

2 Timothy 4:2

proclaim the Word! Be ready when it is convenient or inconvenient. Confront, rebuke, encourage—with complete patience and instruction.

In 1957, evangelist Billy Graham spoke in New York City’s Madison Square Garden. This outreach lasted nearly 16 weeks, from May 15 to September 1, and was attended by more than two million people. Billy Graham spoke to more people and live audiences than anyone in history: nearly 215 million people in 185 countries and territories.

That is one form of “evangelism.” While that format has been used by God to bring many to salvation, evangelism simply means to “proclaiming the Good News.” It can take place one on one over a cup of coffee or at a gas station. Billy Graham simply used his spiritual gift; that every one of us is called to be the bearer of God’s Good News.

Most of us will never preach to thousands, but all of us will have the opportunity to share the “reason for the hope that is in us.”

1 Peter 3:15

Sanctify Messiah as Lord in your hearts. Always be ready to give an answer to anyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you.

Ask God to arrange for a divine opportunity for you to be an evangelist!
