This book did two specific things in my heart. It encouraged my own soul as I read the gospel message over and over. In being encouraged with the gospel, it motivated me to want to share it more.
A different author wrote each chapter, giving stories of God's faithfulness in their obedience to share the good news. Each chapter hits on a specific area of life where we Christians are called to evangelize and make disciples. For every Christian looking to fulfill this calling, there's at least one chapter meant for your particular season. For me, I enjoyed the chapter on children. I have two children living inside my home. They are my very own and are with me every day. Therefore, I have countless opportunities and the privilege to share the gospel with them over and over.
I've always loved college students. This is where I spend the bulk of my time sharing the gospel and doing life. It's no surprise the chapter on evangelizing college students made an impact on me, fueling an even bigger desire for the salvation and spiritual growth of those beloved eighteen to twenty-somethings. Hearing how this author bore fruit in the lives of several college students by going door to door in the dormitory stirred my heart to do the same. So, you may just see walking the halls of your dorm!
Not only do I love college students, but I love international college students. Each school year, I find myself in the home of a Saudi Arabian family or having tea with a few Chinese girls. The chapter on spreading the gospel to different cultures excited me for the upcoming school year.
