3 Layers of Evangelism that Will Win the World

Is passing out gospel tracts good enough?

Does that satisfy the Lord’s command to make the world our mission field?

Or is there something more?

Certainly, you know that if I’m writing this, the answer is YES! There is more!

Matthew 5:13-16 in the NIV gives us 3 Layers of Evangelism That Will Win the World for Jesus.

“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

This is a lengthy passage of evangelism goodness, so to not get lost in all its divine excellence, let’s look at the 3 Layers of Evangelism separately. We can soak them in better that way.

Our 1st Layer of Evangelism: You are the salt of the earth.

Salt gives flavor to life, adds interest, makes it yummy good. But like salt, too much ruins the experience. We can’t browbeat Christ into the lost. We must draw them with love.

Our 2nd Layer of Evangelism: You are the light of the world.

Our light is revealed through our actions. It’s not enough to know you’re forgiven. You must live in a way that others can see you are forgiven. We’re saved by grace, but we reveal our salvation through works.

Our 3rd Layer of Evangelism: You are a town built on a hill.

We must be a landmark for those who can’t find their way. Exposed in our Christian walk, we will become a beacon that draws people in. We do that with generosity, warmth, and sincere interest in the needs of the hurting and lost.

So, back to our question: Is passing out gospel tracts good enough?

I think that question has been answered. It might be a start, but true evangelism begins in our relationships with the people we rub shoulders with every day.

Let’s rub our Christian shoulders against people the right way so they will want to know the Christ we choose to serve.
