  • In classical literature a reward for good
    tidings.

2. Later glad tidings or good news.
6
Dictionary of New Testament Theology
Originally, The reward received by the messenger
of victory.
Then, the message of victory that brought joy.
Used primarily in the political realm to denote
announcements that battles had been won, or that
a ruler had been born or had ascended to the
throne.
7
Louw Nida
In a number of languages, the expression the
gospel or good news must be rendered by a phrase,
for example, news that makes one happy, or
information that causes one joy, or words that
bring smiles, or a message that causes the
heart to be sweet.

Mk 8, 10, 16
For whoever wants to save his life will lose it,
but whoever loses his life for me and for the
gospel will save it. Mark 835
The disciples were even more amazed, and said to
each other, Who then can be saved? Mark 1026
Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved,
but whoever does not believe will be
condemned. Mark 1616
31
Luke 8, 19, Jn 12
Those along the path are the ones who hear, and
then the devil comes and takes away the word from
their hearts, so that they may not believe and be
saved. Luke 812
For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what
was lost. Luke 1910
For God did not send his Son into the world to
condemn the world, but to save the world through
him. John 317
32
Acts 2
And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord
will be saved. Acts 221
With many other words he warned them and he
pleaded with them, Save yourselves from this
corrupt generation. Acts 240
praising God and enjoying the favor of all the
people. And the Lord added to their number daily
those who were being saved. Acts 247
33
Acts 11, 16
He will bring you a message through which you
and all your household will be saved. Acts 1114
He then brought them out and asked, Sirs, what
must I do to be saved? They replied, Believe
in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved-- you
and your household. Acts 1630-31

Persuade
Every Sabbath he reasoned in the synagogue,
trying to persuade Jews and Greeks. Acts 184
Then Agrippa said to Paul, Do you think that in
such a short time you can persuade me to be a
Christian? Short time or long--I pray God that
not only you but all who are listening to me
today may become what I am, except for these
chains. Acts 2628-29
Since, then, we know what it is to fear the
Lord, we try to persuade men. What we are is
plain to God, and I hope it is also plain to your
conscience. 2 Cor. 511

Conclusions
Some Conclusions
1. There is a divine rescue operation underway
at the present.
2. God is either enlisting or targeting you.
3. If you are a believer, you are a witness.
4. Other gifted individuals can be a model,
mentor, and encouragement to you.
5. You arent alone. Your church should be one
through which God can be seen and heard.

54
The Gather/Scatter Approach
The Gather/Scatter Approach
55
The GS strengths
Strengths
Affirms the truth that gathering is for
believers.
Places the task of evangelism on the shoulders
of every believer.
Makes discipleship and growth a priority,
avoiding shallowness in biblical understanding
and convictions.
56
The GS weaknesses
Weaknesses
No test-drives for non-Christians.
It relies solely on individuals to bring others
to Christ.
It ignores the power of a fellowship to attract.
It makes the culture barrier easier to erect.
It ignores the potentially powerful
opportunities to model evangelism.
57
Seeker-Oriented
The Seeker-Oriented Approach
58
The S-O strengths
Strengths
Recognizes the limitations weaknesses of
people.
Makes church very attractive to unbelievers.
Higher rate of conversions. (It works!)
Recognizes the need for time exposure to make
a sincere decision.
Employs gifted people and the power of a
fellowship.
Takes seriously the Great Commission.
59
The S-O weaknesses
Weaknesses
In a time-conscious, event-overloaded society,
the model often fails to penetrate the
commitment barrier.
It can be unworkable for those limited in
resources or giftedness.
It can allow seekers to set the agenda for
believers.
It can give the idea that the church is
method-driven.
60
Seeker Sensitive
The Seeker-Sensitive Approach
61
The SS strengths
Strengths
Recognizes uses gifted people the power of
a fellowship, as well as placing responsibility
on the individual believer.
The unbeliever gets a real taste of
Christianity, not a lite version.
It is a deliberate attempt to make the church
as culturally friendly as possible without
changing its agenda.
It takes the opportunity of gathering to model
evangelism proclaiming the Gospel.
62
The SS weaknesses
Weaknesses
Invitations can become an irrelevant addition
to existing services.
Keeping the balance without moving to either
end of the spectrum is very difficult, and at
times feels double-minded.
63
The Come See
The Come and See Approach
64
The Come strengths
Strengths
Taps into seekers desires for something
greater than themselves
What you see is what you get. Little chance
for bait and switch.
Allows the church to be the church, and not
some outreach attempt to those who arent the
church.
Other?
65
The Come weaknesses
Weaknesses
It assumes seekers will be sufficiently drawn
to the church to penetrate Hunters barriers.
It can forget that Christianity turns on a
message, and not on an experience, however
attractive or spiritual it may be.
Other?

67
Cold Turkey Evangelism
The Cold-Turkey Approach
68
CT strengths
Strengths
Takes seriously the Great Commission.
Relies on God to change hearts.
Can be done anywhere, anytime with anyone.
69
CT weaknesses
Weaknesses
It goes counter to our culture which is busy,
private, suspicious, bombarded with offers and
ads.
It ignores the power of a relationship to
provide the soil of love and trust in which the
Gospel is more likely to germinate.
It is the most difficult approach for most
people.
70
Relational Evangelism
The Relational Approach
71
Rel strengths
Strengths
Relationships are powerful bridges to
transparency trust.
It works. The majority of people who profess
faith continue have done so with the aid of
some positive Christian relationships.
Many who cant (or wont) strike up a
conversation spontaneously do feel comfortable
making friends.
72
Rel weaknesses
Weaknesses
The Great Commission isnt limited to your
friends.
It takes more time and investment of energy.
Once the relationship is forged, the
possibility of losing your focus increases.
Once the relationship is forged, if the
unbeliever does not believe, and you drop them,
the damage is very great.

Sidders a
You deserve a break today! the TV sings. From
all sides, the message rings, You owe it to
yourself! We are constantly blasted with
attractive options for career, shelter,
transportation, clothing, recreation and
relaxation. The result is that we pursue
material things without limit, having become
victims of the looking out for 1 mindset. In
the middle of this noise we miss the cries of
millions who have no idea why they live, why they
suffer, or who made them. They wonder if an
eternity exists, and in dark, solitary moments,
they wish to a God they don't know that they
weren't born. Millions slip quietly into an
eternity without Christ while we go about ridding
ourselves of inconveniences. Unfortunately, those
people become victims of our comfort. Few people
would say that comfort itself is evil. That's
not the issue.
92
Sidders b
The issue is What effect does comfort have on
our lives, and what role does comfort have in our
decision-making processes, and how do our
decisions about comfort affect those whose only
hope for eternal life in Christ depends on our
reaching out to share ourselves? We arent
supposed to make decisions based on what feels
good. Christ would never have gone to the cross
had that been a major criterion, and there is a
good chance that many of us would not have a
personal relationship with Christ had not someone
been willing to do the inconvenient. It is
blunt and uncomfortable, but the issue must be
faced What is more significant my desire for
personal comfort or a persons almost
incomprehensible need to know Christ and avoid an
eternity in hell?
93

If we Christians are really going to
revolutionize the world with the message of
Christ, then there has to be a lot more
dying. Greg Sidders

Petersen
For better or worse, the life a Christian lives
in the presence of those he seeks to win is a
preview of what the non-Christians life will
become if he accepts what he is hearing.
Generally, he will decide either to accept or
reject Christianity according to what he has
seen. Evangelism as a Lifestyle, Jim Peterson
