I came across this great definition of worship and evangelism on Mark Batterson's blog:
For what it's worth, here are my personal definitions of worship and evangelism. Worship is bragging about God to God. Evangelism is bragging about God to others. I think evangelism is a simple extension of worship. Let's not stop bragging about God when we walk out of church!
Batterson goes on to give a dream of his - I've had the same dream:
I've always dreamed of being part of a church that was experiencing the reality of Acts 2:47. It says people were added daily. Don't you want to be part of a church that is experiencing life changing transformation on a daily basis?
What do you think?
These are awesome definitions. Thanks for sharing them with us.
Hey Pastor James,
Certainly resonante with your comment, "I think evangelism is a simple extension of worship." The church has a tendency to 'praise God' in celebration (worship)for those added daily to the church. Worship is the beginning and end of all worthwhile activity. Blessings.
