Every year around this time, churches encourage their congregations to invite their non-Christian friends to an Easter-Sunday service. While it is never a bad idea to invite an unbeliever to church, such campaigns can communicate the wrong idea to the congregation-namely, you don't need to evangelize; just bring people to church and let the pastor explain the gospel. This may come as a relief to those who feel unable to do the work of evangelism, but inviting people to church isn't the only solution-nor does it address the need to fulfill this God-ordained duty of all believers.
One of the reasons people struggle with evangelism is they don't feel confident they can explain the gospel clearly. If that's a struggle for you, or someone you know, we want to help. As Resurrection Sunday approaches, consider equipping yourself so that you can faithfully explain the gospel at every opportunity (1 Peter 3:15). We trust the following resources will aid you in that endeavor.
