It is important to remember this morning that we are not alone in the work of evangelism. We have the “Great Evangelist” the Holy Spirit assisting us and carrying out his will in our lives. The promise of Jesus was that He would send the Spirit of truth to bear witness to Him, as John 15:26 tells us, “But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me.“ The work of the Holy Spirit is very important in the work of evangelism, he gives powerful testimony of Jesus!
This made it effective, the proclamation of the gospel in the life of the disciples. It was not what they did; it was what God was doing through their lives. The tremendous help God gave them to carry out the mission as Mark 16:20 tells us, “20 And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen.” They did not preach alone. The power of the Holy Spirit confirmed the word to the listeners! Lives were transformed and healed in a supernatural way because it was no longer the disciples doing the work, it was the Holy Spirit working miraculously!
Today the Holy Spirit wants to use your life greatly. If you have failed in the work of evangelism before, it is time to try again! But on this occasion let the Holy Spirit fill you and use you in a powerful way. Acts 19: 11-12 tells us, “ 11 Now God worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul, 12 so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were brought from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out of them.” It is God who does the work; it is God who heals, and God who saves; we are only instruments in His hands.
