Confessions Of A
Confessions Of A Mass Evangelist
For more than a decade I was a part of a Mass Evangelism team that traveled, preaching the Gospel in stadiums around the world.
As I look back over the years, there’s one thing I would do differently.
You see, I’m always for preaching the Gospel. The more people hearing the Gospel of the Kingdom, the better!
In Luke 10 and Matthew 9, there’s only one thing Jesus said to pray for before going on outreach:
“He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” Luke 10:2
Did you see what he said to focus on?
Now you know why I call this the “Weekly Worker Maker”
As followers of Jesus we have one calling when going out:
- Find Workers
- Train Workers
- Send Workers
In Matthew 10 and Luke 10 I imagine Jesus talking with his disciples. In Matthew he sends out 12, in Luke he sends out 72. He has all his workers with him and he says the the harvest is plentiful but the workers a few, ask the Lord of the harvest to send out workers.
So if Jesus has all his workers with him and he’s sending them out, where will the new workers come from?
The “Workers For The Harvest Come From The Harvest”
When we are preaching the Gospel in stadiums we primarily focus on getting people to raise their hands and come up to give their lives to Jesus.
There’s nothing wrong with that but it doesn’t help you find workers.
How do you know when you have found a worker?
- They Accept the Messenger (“When you enter a house” Lk 10:5)
- They accept the Message (“first say, ‘Peace to this house’… your peace will rest on them…” Lk 10:5-6)
- They get sent on a Mission (” If someone who promotes peace is there” Lk 10:6)
The 3 M’s, Messenger, Message & Mission.
As mass evangelists we did the first 2 really well.
I think the one we didn’t do very well is the Mission part.
This is the strategy we implemented to helps us find workers.
I have all of our people ask someone who just said yes to Jesus:
“Tell me the names of 5 people who need to hear about what God just did in your life?”
After they share the 5 names, follow with this question.
“Out of those 5, who are you going to share with before you go to bed tonight?”
Then we get their contact info and call them the next day and ask how it went sharing with the person last night.
Probably 8 out of 10 won’t share, 1 might say “it went great talking with them.”
One of them will say “I talked with the one person, and called 5 others and told 10 people on the streets my story, too!”
Who is the worker?
The one who went and did the work.
May God anoint you to be a Worker Maker!
