BOOR January 2011: Confession's of the world's worst evangelist

The best thing I read online last January was from Steve Addison: Confession's of the world's worst evangelist.

Here are some highlight quotes:
  • I’m still the world’s worst evangelist, but that no longer stops me stepping out in faith to see what God is going to do. 
  • The gospel of our good deeds is a shadow. The gospel of our church cannot save. The gospel of our political agendas is a distraction. The gospel of our silence is unloving. The only hope for this lost world is the death and resurrection of Jesus—Christ in us, the hope of glory. 
  • You would be amazed at how many atheists are touched by your prayer for them. You’d be surprised how many come back the next week and tell me how the God they don’t believe in has answered our prayers.
I think this post resonated with me because I often feel that I am a poor evangelist.  I'm not sure where you consider yourself, but a quick reading of this post would probably be good for you.  Here's the link again.
