Here's how to cultivate true lifestyle evangelism:
Pray that God uses you to reach the lost.
Ask for wisdom to use the time you have effectively for evangelism. Treat every day as though it were your last opportunity to share Christ. One day you will be right.
Study how to answer every man who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you.
"but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence"
—1 Peter 3:15 (NASB)
"The mind of the wise instructs his mouth, and adds learning and persuasiveness to his lips."
—Proverbs 16:23 (AMP)
Find a “fishing hole” and go there regularly. Don't wait for sinners to approach you; go to them.
"And He said to them, 'Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.'"
—Mark 16:15 (NASB)
Use any anxiety as a catalyst to drive you to prayer and trust in God. Don't let the fear of man paralyze you.
"in no way alarmed by your opponents--which is a sign of destruction for them, but of salvation for you, and that too, from God."
—Philippians 1:28 (NASB)
You will realize the spiritual nature of fear after you conquer it. Confront it with the Word of God.
"I can do all things through Him who strengthens me."
—Philippians 4:13 (NASB)
Encourage others (by example and exhortation) into the task of evangelism.
