Internet Evangelism Idea #17: Serve as an Online Missionary
This post is part 17 in the series 20 Ways to Share Your Faith Online leading up to and following Internet Evangelism Day on April 25. We encourage you to tweet, share, blog & discuss these ideas in your church & circle of influence.
“These days, knocking on someone’s door to share the gospel is almost…unchristian,” my friend confided as we were finishing our dinner last night and talking about evangelism. “People don’t want an intrusion,” he said. Now, you should know that this man has led many, many people to Jesus by knocking on doors and sharing his faith.
“Imagine this,” I replied. “What if, instead of going to them, 6,000 people knocked on your front door every day asking you to tell them about Jesus? Wouldn’t that be great?”
I am an Online Missionary with GlobalMediaOutreach.com. Every day, someone knocks on my door and asks to know more about Jesus. In less than a year I have helped 226 people develop a relationship with Jesus Christ through email as an Online Missionary. I’m sure that some people go through their entire life without sharing Christ with 200 people.
On Internet Evangelism Day, April 25, more than 6,500 people emailed a GMO Online Missionary and asked to know more about Jesus. Follow up and discipleship is happening right now as GMO’s Online Missionaries engage these people who are coming to Christ from around the world. In Acts 8 we read about Philip being prompted to get up and go to minister to the Ethiopian eunuch who was seeking Christ and open to the gospel. In the same way, the Holy Spirit is connecting people seeking to know Jesus with the Online Missionaries ready to share the gospel.
If you would like to share Jesus with more people every day, I encourage you to visit www.globalmediaoutreach.com/volunteer.html Sign up to become an Online Missionary and begin to open the door for some of the many thousands who are knocking on your door every day.
