What would it look like if evangelism was really a part of our lives? If we didn't compartmentalize everything and get all nervous about having a spiritual conversation. I'm guessing that it would be a lot different. It's like we have our lives and then we have the part of our life that we let God rule. And we don't want the two to mix. We love God and we're committed to him, but we refuse to let him invade every part of our life.
I think it's because we're too busy. We're too busy to be available to people and really listen to them. We don't want to spend time with people. Evangelism is work when you do it right. When it flows naturally out of relationship. I think that's why God asks for laborers and not managers. JM
