The Sacrament of Evangelism: We’re Missing Out

By Jerry Root and Stan Guthrie

We Christians are an active lot.

We serve in many areas of ministry—we staff homeless shelters, produce Christian media, build schools, send missionaries, hold prayer meetings, and sing with worship teams. Some of us, usually a minority with the “gift” of evangelism, even tell others about Jesus. If activity were the standard, we would all hear His commendation, “Well done, good and faithful servant!”

But activity alone is not the standard of the Christian life—even good activity.
