“…Imagine that. And, I’m not kidding either. Here’s how it goes….”

I’ve been a “life-long” EVANGELIST and didn’t even know it.  Imagine that.  And, I’m not kidding either.  Here’s how it goes.  I have a clear and distinctive memory of when I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior in December of 1952…62 years ago.  It wasn’t that big of deal either….meaning it was easy to accept Him.  I accepted, easily, that He expected me to live by some certain basic rules of Conduct.  The Ten Commandments; The Golden Rule; to be Respectful of others…not just my elders; and not to Steal; not to Cheat; not to Gossip; to LOVE my neighbor; and to WORK for my food.  He expected me to be Honest, Trustworthy, and to obey the Rules of society.  He expected me to have good Morals, to have a positive Influence on those around me, to have good work Ethics, to be Honorable; and not to drink and eat in Excess.  This is the same thing as being an EVANGELIST.  So…I’ve been an Evangelist and didn’t even know it.  No….I didn’t excel or succeed in all of these criteria, as He expects, but I try, and I will continue to do my best to improve.  All of these criteria meet the definition of Evangelism ….to spread the Word of Christ.  The facts are this:  I’m not the only one who is being an Evangelist in the work-place.  Anyone who conducts themselves in the manner outlined above is also an Evangelist.  This is true at the work place, at home, at Church, and at our places of play and entertainment.  All who conduct themselves in this manner are “spreading-the-word.”  Are you an Evangelist?  I bet you are.  Matthew 28:19-20 – Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost; Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. …Blessings…cjlb…4/14/14
