What IS the Great Privilege?

I’m so glad you asked!

For the believer in Christ, the child of God, the great privilege is to have been chosen by God to share the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ with the lost and dying world around us; our families, friends & co-workers, as well as other fellow travelers along this path we call life.   Some call it ‘personal evangelism’, which is a good an honorable ‘task’ statement, but one that also can be a bit intimidating,

One might also hear that the sharing of the gospel message is a ‘duty’, and indeed it is. Some would even say that this duty falls primarily to pastors, evangelists, and other specially gifted folks. I would suggest that the proclamation of the gospel is both a duty and a privilege of all who claim to be Christians.  I further suggest that the ‘privilege’ aspect of personal evangelism has been highly underrated, if recognized at all. And while I believe that to be true, I am also convinced that if/when the idea of personal evangelism as ‘the great privilege’ is incorporated into the regenerated mind and heart, the amount of personal evangelism taking place will increase exponentially.

Exactly how the sharing of the gospel message is transformed from just a duty (and a pleasant one at that) to the greatest privilege bestowed by God upon his children is, I think, a matter of understanding the message itself, the state of fallen man and his need for the message, and the sovereignty of God in the saving of fallen man.

Those are the topics we will attempt to explore and discuss at this site.  They will be addressed in the context of living in a culture that is becoming increasingly hostile to all things Godly.

Stay tuned, my friends!.

“How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”
