Here are some practical aspects of evangelization:
- Recognize the dignity of the person created in the image of God. Don’t look at people as projects or something to be conquered.
- Invest in relationships. Take the time to get to know people at work. Getting to know them.
- Listen, even at length, so that we can discover and respond to their deepest issues. Don’t approach people with a preset agenda, “I have to get my witness in…”
- Take an authentic interest in others and what is important to them. Don’t just give them a “canned” message and ignore their problems or concerns.
- See the potential in each person as God sees them. Don’t write people off based on limited perceptions.
