Evangelism 2015 Lesson #8

Empowered to Evangelize



Intro: What is your favorite action movie and why?


  1. Mark 16:15-18, Luke 19:10 God has called us as Christians to evangelize. When we know Christ we have the responsibility to reach out and share Christ with others.
    1. Acts 1:8, Psalms 2:8 The bible tells us that the Holy Spirit will empower us to be his witnesses to the world.
      1. 1 Cor 4:20 Christianity is more than church services and events that we attend, God desires to demonstrate his power through our lives to a lost and dying world
      2. Mark 13:11 God promises that when we step out in evangelism, and share Christ with others, that he will give us the right words to say.
    2. Isaiah 6:8, John 3:16 God will send his power on those who are willing to step up, and go wherever he wants them to go, and do whatever he wants them to do.
  2. Luke 24:49, 2 Cor 5:20 God promises to clothe us in his power, It is this power of the Holy Spirit that will protect us, provide for us, and anoint us to do his will.
    1. 1 Pet 4:12-13 Not only will God anoint us to share the Gospel with the lost, he will anoint us to confront and overcome every problem or obstacle that gets in our way.
      1. Isaiah 53:5,James 5:14-16 God will anoint us with power to pray for those who are sick, bound, or addicted and see them sealed and set free.
      2. Luke 9:1, Luke 10:19 God will give us power over every demonic spirit, stronghold, and evil presence that may try to attack, detour, or stop us.
    2. 1 Cor 2:4-5, John 14:12 These demonstrations of power serve as signs of the reality of God to draw those who are lost, or backslidden to Christ.




  1. Why do you think the world needs a clear demonstration of the power of God?
  2. Who here has a testimony of a time when you were healed, delivered, or set free by the power of God?
  3. Can you share a testimony of someone who experienced the power of God, and as a result, they gave their life to Christ?
  4. Who here feels God is calling you right now to step out in a new way in evangelism? What is the step you feel God is directing you to take?


End: Pray for any who need to accept Christ, or rededicate their lives to Christ, pray for this who want a stronger anointing of the Holy Spirit, then take requests.
