“Evangelism is the Lords work and we get to partake. Just as prophecy is an overflow of hearing and seeing, evangelism is the overflow of being found,” writes Andrew Cannon". Here is his blog post on how to evangelise, written just for you. What an absolute honour and privilege it is to speak lifesaving words inspired by God, that when spoken, bring about a shift in the atmosphere, shatter chains, and bring forth salvation and reconciliation.

As individual parts of a corporate body we are all significant, each having a function that is needed to advance with power and efficiency, demonstrating the nature of our loving Father here on earth.
It is vital for each one of us to win souls, spreading seeds and participating in this great harvest. The bible refers to it as wise work, and hey we want to walk wisely, don’t we?
Two Things To Overcome
There are two main reasons believers don’t share their faith.
One, is the fear of rejection.
Let’s face it, none of us like the feeling of being rejected. A way to counteract this fear is to remember Jesus was also rejected.
Two, is not knowing how to start a conversation centered around our faith.
Maybe you could ask someone, “Hey have you heard the great news today?”
“What news?” they may ask.
“The great news that Jesus loves you so much and wants to be in every part of your life”.
Set A Goal
Chat with the Lord today and start out by setting yourself a target to deliberately speak to at least one person each week about Jesus.
This person could be a fellow commuter, a colleague, a stranger in need, the list is endless with Holy Spirit guiding you.
As witnessing becomes a lifestyle and not an event, believe for increase, that sharing will become commonplace in your life.
Throughout the bible we see mighty moves of God occurring and so often a common theme is Him using men and women to bring about His plans and purposes.
Make yourself ready, willing, and available for God to use you.
There really is no better feeling than serving our Lord and introducing someone to Jesus, He really is everything.
Andrew Cannon is an Evangelist born and raised in Liverpool, UK. The hand of God radically touched him in January 2010 when he called upon the name of Jesus. His life was full of destruction and addictions, alcohol, drugs and self-harming.
It was on Andrews very first encounter with the love and power of Jesus that he was transformed. He was completely and instantly set free, his life of destruction and the chains of the enemy were broken off. He now lives a life sold out for Jesus.
Andrew has led 1000’s to the Lord through the love, truth and compassion of Christ and encourages believers to do the same in their everyday life.
He has been called by God into the office of an Evangelist and has wasted no time in unashamedly sharing his faith in Jesus to all he comes across in his walk, whether that’s at a Stadium event, a conference or on the streets where Andrew feels right at home introducing people to the Lord.
Andrew’s Ministry is one that not only equips the Church into living a life of evangelism, but also encourages and provokes believers and Churches to come together in the last days harvest.
Gospel Grenades, as a ministry, travels worldwide seeing a “Good News Explosion” everywhere they go, bringing power, love, truth and freedom that comes with a life in Christ.
