Being An Evangelist

There is a common misconception about the 5 fold ministry that I too used to be deceived about and didn’t have the full understanding of either. If you know what your calling in the 5 fold ministry is from the Lord God Jesus Christ and it is not as an evangelist, that doesn’t mean you are never going to be called out into the streets or wherever to reach the lost and preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. 🙂 We are all called to be disciples of Jesus Christ, preach the gospel, and to help Him make more disciples (Matthew 28:19 -> Acts 2:38-39)(Mark 16:15-18, Luke 24:46-58). An evangelist is simply someone gifted more than most with boldness in preaching the gospel publicly and the Lord Jesus Christ usually has them be “street preachers” and He usually has them travel a lot too. That doesn’t mean others are not called out into the streets or wherever else to witness to the lost and demonstrate the power of the Holy Ghost in both deed (casting out demons and healing in the name of Jesus Christ) and in word (preach the Word of God). We just need to be sensitive to the Lord’s voice and obey it so He can lead us by His Spirit. It can be as simple as talking to someone at a grocery store or at Walmart while you’re already there shopping to tell them how Jesus changed your life, He is real and loves them, they need to surrender their lives to Him, etc. Or maybe He will have you go a step further in faith and lay hands on someone and command them to be healed in the name of Jesus Christ. Every disciple of Jesus Christ is called to do this. When you have both the Word of God being preached and the demonstration of the power of the Holy Ghost (deliverance from demons and miraculous healing) hand-in-hand, that is what really pricks people’s hearts to where they will believe and for God to grant them repentance. Having the balance of both is imperative and is so powerful just like we see in the book of Acts. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever, which means the Holy Ghost is still the same today. Repent, and be baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and then tarry in the upper room (prayer closet of your heart) by fasting and praying until you are endued with the same power from on high – the Holy Ghost and cloven tongues of fire. (Luke 24:49, Acts 1, Acts 2)
