Evangelism or witnessing is a time sensitive, yet perpetual ministry. It is time-sensitive because the message the evangelist delivers to the world is time-sensitive. It is perpetual because “as long as we have breath we should, in one capacity or another, continue to minister,” for if we are living a Christ-like life, Christ “will always provide opportunities for witnessing.” These opportunities may come in various forms, but they all give credence to the concept of the perpetuity of ministry. As long as there is sin in the world, we need to witness; as long as Satan is allowed to roam freely on this earth, “seeking whom he may devour,” we need to witness about God’s saving grace; as long as Jesus has not yet come to take us home to live with Him, we need to witness. Witnessing is indeed a perpetual ministry.
