In 2 Kings 5: 1-19, Elisha demonstrates how to share the gospel in a way that we can learn from today. When we think of speaking to someone about Jesus, there are often fears that stop the words before they come out. Sometimes we feel like we don’t know how to speak, or we are not good enough. Sometimes we are afraid of their reaction, or other consequences of our evangelism.
Many of our fears about sharing the gospel are unnecessary: if we follow Elisha’s example, much of the anxiety falls away.
Why was Elisha able to share the gospel and see someone transformed? It had almost nothing to do with him. God did all the transformation and work of salvation. We can trust that he will do that in our conversations, look for those opportunities that he gives us, and respond in faith.
It is not our intelligence, power, wealth, or anything else about us that allows us to share the gospel effectively. It is our prayerful, humble dependence on God.
