The Holy Spirit and Evangelism

“Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect” – 1 Peter 3:15

What role do the Holy Spirit and prayer play in sharing your faith? Nobody will ever come to Christ if the Holy Spirit doesn’t bring about a conviction. You cannot argue anyone into the Kingdom of God. Now, that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t have good arguments. But only as God the Holy Spirit uses our witness will anyone ever come to Christ.

I think every moment we should be filled with the Holy Spirit by faith, and that is a conscious choice. The Holy Spirit lives within us, but He wants to live out through us. Basically, quenching the Holy Spirit means we’re not doing something the Holy Spirit is leading us to do, while grieving the Holy Spirit means we’re doing something the Holy Spirit is not leading us to do. So, if we’re not quenching or grieving the Spirit, we’re filled with the Holy Spirit. Then prayer. I try to be praying all the time. It’s a constant attitude of prayer with every person I meet, with everything I do. Prayer unleashes the power of God.
