Fear of God Devotional: Do Family-Integrated Churches Ignore the Lost?
How should family-integrated churches address unsaved individuals?
Kevin Swanson explains that a lack of evangelism stems from a lack of faith and courage to communicate the Gospel. Some individuals say that one way to evangelize the world is to send their young children to public schools. But this is not wise and goes against Scriptural commands, principles, and patterns.
Rather, God wants men to preach the Word of God in the public forum and to call people to repentance. This is what Paul and Peter did. They went wherever they could to get the Word of God preached and we ought to strive to do the same. We are not called to hide the Gospel under a bushel. Instead, we are to desire to share the Gospel to a people that desperately need to hear it.
Mark 16:15 (NKJV) – “And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.”
