If you want to know what your priorities are, what is important to you, what you’re concerned about or what your passions are, just think about your prayer life — you will always pray about the things that matter to you. Likewise, if you want to realign your priorities, change what is important to you or increase your passion for evangelism you must refocus your prayer life. Consider taking these few steps:Read More›
Recently I have been asking God to give me a renewed passion and burden for people who don’t yet know him. I’ve been asking him for opportunities to share the good news of Jesus with others. And I have realized that the opportunities I’ve been asking for are the very things that God is using to keep my passion for evangelism alive.Read More›

Christmas brings many natural opportunities for God-conversations to take place, from the work parties to school break ups, club dinners, sports presentations and family celebrations, all of us will be with people at some stage during this Christmas season.
These occasions are times when God wants to use you to engage in intentional gospel conversations. You don’t have to be with people very long at this time of year to get an opportunity to start a conversation that God can use to draw people one step closer to him.Read More›
There are two great truths the gospels reveal about Jesus: A) He is fully God and B) He is fully human. To date, the Church has rightly emphasised the deity of Jesus. As Scripture says, “In the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God, and the Word was God” John 1:1

Why do most people feel anxious about sharing their faith with others?
Have you ever thought “What do I say?” or “Where do I start?” Deciding where to start depends on your view of evangelism. We typically only think of evangelism as helping someone take the final step of putting their faith in Christ. But when you recognise that everyone journeys to faith in Christ, and that journey takes time, you realise that in fact, evangelism includes journeying with a person towards Christ. Your current conversation with them is about helping them take the next step in their journey (and may not include crossing the line today)!Read More›
I was at a BBQ with friends and God gave me the opportunity to share the good news of Jesus Christ. And then the question came, “So what you’re saying is, if I choose not to believe in Jesus I’m going to hell?” Wow—what a question! How do I tell someone they are going to hell?Read More›
Heading down to the local pub for a few drinks after work is very much a part of Aussie culture. Being invited by work colleagues may excite some but for others the thought of being in a worldly environment proves a challenge to their way of thinking. What does it mean for me when my mates go for a drink after work?Read More›
It can feel right that God should accept sincere people of all faiths, or that people should be given a second chance after they die or that we shouldn’t condemn people who believe differently from us, but God has revealed how he works in Scripture and so the Bible, not our feelings, must be our basis for whatever we believe about salvation. Understanding what the Bible says about salvation will set you up for effective evangelism, as you will be able to share God’s salvation plan with those who don’t know Jesus yet.Read More›
When many people think of God’s judgment they justify themselves as to whether they believe they are basically a “good person” or a “bad person”. But God’s judgment isn’t based on whether we are “good” or “bad” but on whether we have broken his law.Read More›
