The spirit of the Lord moves powerfully. His grace pursues and persists.
The Word is a consuming force that breaks down the pride of unbelief and creates the miracle of faith. It is His Word that announces Christ and what He has done – it is the only means to create and nourish faith.
And it’s this Word – this power – that is proclaimed from the mouths of believers.
The gospel is the Good News of what Jesus Christ has already done for us. Jesus was crucified, buried, and rose again on our behalf. It is the power of the Holy Spirit working through the message of the gospel that creates faith in an unbeliever’s heart.
The saving work of the Holy Spirit can only work through the message of the gospel and not the law. However, the law does have a place in evangelism. When done with the attitude of love and proper discernment, the message of the law prepares hearts to receive the gospel message that Christ has done it all!

Evangelism is difficult and scary!
Some people think that sharing the gospel is terrifying because they don’t know what to say or feel that they just can’t do it.
I don’t believe that is true.
There is something deeper and more prevailing that causes terror for Christians when the invitation to proclaim the gospel is graciously extended by the gospel. Read more
Praise and Proclaim Ministries gave thanks to the Lord for the opportunity to come to east Texas and launch another outreach campaign. Rev.
