SUNDAY, February 10                  5 Epiphany

1 Corinthians 15:3 For I handed onto you as of first importance what I in turn had received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures.

Evangelists are making a comeback—not just within the walls of the church but in our culture as well. Even companies seek to hire product evangelists to attend conferences, interact in online forums and social networks, and to otherwise represent the company or specific product.

A real person telling the good news about a product or service to other real people is one of the best ways to promote just about anything.

Whether this is actually good for business is beyond me. But this practice is good (and vital) for the church. We needn’t fear evangelism. It is simply telling another person about something amazing that was told to us.

I don’t have all the answers. I don’t know exactly how the mystery of God’s love works, but it does. This news is too good not to share.

MOVING FORWARD: Think about two concrete ways you can share the good news of Jesus with another person this week, and then put those plans into action!
