Q2 SS-2012 Lesson 5: Spiritual Gifts for Evangelism and Witnessing (read Lesson 5)
Sequential evangelism is a step by step approach to sharing the gospel that was taught and practiced by Jesus during His ministry on earth. In the adult Sabbath School lesson five titled “Sequential Evangelism and Witnessing", we are reminded of four basic steps used by Jesus during his earthly ministry. These fundamental steps remain valid today.
- Meet the needs of people where they are.
In the Parable of the Sheep and Goats, Jesus taught that first step in evangelism is to meet the people where they are (Matt. 25: 31-40). It is important that as individuals and as a church, we seek to meet the physical needs of the community we serve with love and kindness, for in doing so the process of evangelism is initialized.
