Choosing an Evangelistic Methodology

Lately my heart has been greatly burdened for the lost.  The Lord has been quickly answering evangelistic petitions because He came to seek and to save the lost.   Books and experts on the topic of witnessing and evangelism abound and the variety of methodologies abound, perhaps because the Lord made each of us so different.  I do not want be tossed back and forth like the waves by using my own intellect to wonder through such books.  Desperately needing the counsel of the Holy Spirit, this morning I asked the Spirit to guide me to an evangelistic methodology that would be appropriate for me.   

The Lord graciously chose to immediately provide Matthew 5:17-20 in response to this petition. 

“Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.  For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.  Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say unto you, that except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.”

Therefore, by the plain direction of the Holy Spirit, I am enrolled as a lifelong student learning how to rely on the Ten Commandments and on the fulfillment of the commandments in Matthew chapter 5, on the surety of Judgement to come, and on the impossibility of righteousness without Christ, to assist sinners in comprehending their personal need for the Savior.  Obeying this call is not possible without continual prayer to become more and more dependent on the Spirit.  My only job is to get out of the way and to respond as the Spirit quickens, keeping spiritual lenses on at every moment to see properly when the Lord provides natural openings and opportunities for relaying the message that is so closest to His heart.  Praise be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.

So, what do you think?
