I have three quotes for you today quote number one is brought to you by Christine Kane God so many things try to hold us back to let your love speak louder than fear. Our second quote of the day is by Mark Middleburg, and he says by your spirit Lord remind me. I don't have to be who I'm not in the third quote of the day is brought to us by Rebecca McLaughlin. And this is what she has to say. I can connect compassionately out of who you made me to be even out of my brokenness. That is so good evangelism on fire nation. Let me say that one more time this quote by Rebecca. She says I can connect compassionately out of who you made me to be even out of my brokenness. I've got two scriptures of the day for you. Our first scripture is 2 Timothy 1 7 for God has not given us the spirit of fear but a power and of love and a sound mind the second verse of scripture I have for you is Joshua 1 9 this is my command be strong and courageous do not be afraid or discouraged for the Lord your God is with you everywhere you go. So I offended some of my listeners in last week's episode as I ended the pod show it was definitely not my intention to offend anyone. But if I did good, hopefully it lit a fire in you to get more intentional about not neglecting knowing who Jesus truly is. I ended the episode last week quoting Nancy Ortberg saying that Jesus is not Mr. Rogers only what exactly does this mean this simply means that God is not the delusional image Christians often make him to be in our minds that Jesus is not the are you ready for this? Jesus is not the author of sugar and spice and everything nice this image of Jesus makes him out to be nothing more than a historic version of Mr. Rogers anyone with this mindset which tends to be many will be bothered offended and even angered by the closing statement in last week's pod episode again good. I hope you were offended if it caused you to get stirred up evangelism on fire nation. Come on as a good friend of mine often says hey real church if you're a casual listener of evangelism on fire podcast who has no interest in sharing the gospel with anyone in your lifetime and you haven't made up your mind to try to attempt to share your faith in Jesus and you're simply not interested in ever taking part in the mission of the Great Commission. You've got to know this this podcast is especially for you. I suggest that you keep listening to evangelism on fire podcast weekly to be inspired and coached to live the most exciting Christian life you can possibly live by actively living a lifestyle of evangelism and telling Jesus to many people do not move on to another podcast. That's more like an all sunshine and rainbows type of podcast. No, don't do that. Don't move on. Continue to listen to evangelism on fire podcast so you can fix your eyes on Jesus the author and perfecter of our faith who for the joy set before him endured the cross scorning its shame and set down at the right hand of the throne of God. Let's learn more about who the true Jesus is and the job. He left us on Earth to accomplish evangelism on fire nation. Here's a truth bomb of the day to get things started. Let me tell you something your achievement in life will be primarily motivated by your motivations. Now what motivates you will drive you and cause you to be whatever you end up being reminds me of a story of a young boy who was walking through the woods and he heard a growl and he looked behind him and there was a great grizzly bear and the boy began to run as fast as he can possibly run and the bear began to run after him and the boy said this bear is going to get me and devour me unless I find some way of escape, but there seemed like there was no way of escape and then he saw a tree and there was a limb that went out from the tree that was 15 feet high. He said no one has ever jumped 15 feet high straight up, but I've got to do it to save my life and the bear was right next to the boy with his warm breath breathing on the neck of this young boy and with a prayer this young boy leaped as high in the air as he could now he missed the limb, but he caught it on his way back down. Now that's motivation evangelism on fire nation. That's some serious motivation today. I'm going to be breaking down living and active lifestyle of evangelism the mindiest person I've ever read about who shared their faith in Jesus with others is the Apostle Paul and in 2 Corinthians 5 we find out what motivated Paul to tell others about Jesus. What drove Paul what compelled him what made him the greatest evangelist the world has ever known. We're going to learn from that. And if you've never told others about Jesus, I want you to listen today with a red hot focus. Now if you're someone who lives a lifestyle of evangelism, you will be blessed encouraged and inspired by this everyone else get ready to be challenged in a good way. The first thing I want you to learn in our pot episode today is this the Christians compulsion. What is compulsion? Compulsion is defined as an irresistible urge to behave in a certain way a sense of obligation or duty to something Paul had a compelling motive that drove him and it should be every Christ followers compelling motive that drives us. What was Paul's compulsion? They said Paul, why do you work so hard? Why are you so white hot with telling people about Jesus? Why do you keep your passion for Jesus burning with a white hot flame and here's his answer found in second Corinthians 5 9. Here's the reason God expects every Christian to engage in the mission of the Great Commission where for we labor that whether present or absent we may be accepted of him. Now that doesn't mean that we work to get to heaven. What he's saying is I want to be acceptable to God. I want God to be pleased with me evangelism on Fire Nation. Listen to this truth bomb. I am putting into your ears right now. If you're reborn and you're not telling people about Jesus, you're not acceptable to God. Let me say that one more time. I know this hurts. I know you might consider this stepping on your toes, but man, we have we have to know the truth of who our Jesus is. Jesus is not Mr. Rogers only if you're reborn and you're not telling people about Jesus. You're not acceptable to God. Why because if we're not telling people about Jesus, we are committing a sin of omission omitting the things from our life that we should be doing for our God now, I know as Christ followers. We focus on the sins of commission the sins that we commit against God those sins that we need to ask for forgiveness for and repent from to turn away from but evangelism on Fire Nation today. I want us to focus on the scent of omission and again, if we're reborn and we're not telling people about Jesus. We are not acceptable to God because of the sin of omission. Listen, it doesn't matter how much money you give to your church. It doesn't matter how faithfully you attend your church. It doesn't matter how eloquently you may preach. It doesn't matter how faithfully you may live or how circumspectly you may walk if you and I are not making an effort or striving to share the gospel with people who are far away from God in an attempt to bring Souls to Jesus Christ. We are not acceptable to him. You're not pleasing to him and no matter who you may please if you displease God you're out of his will and if you please God it really doesn't matter how many people you displease and the way to please God is to bring Souls to the Lord Jesus Christ. That is the Christians compulsion. Here's a truth bomb quote from Andrew Murray. There are two types of Christians soul winners or backsliders now you and I are one or the other Paul works so hard so he would be acceptable to God and we need to be committed like Paul so we can be accepted by God the Christians compulsion is the first reason that should inspire you to live an active lifestyle of evangelism. All right, here is our challenge time of the day and remember this a challenge is a good thing. It's a way that tests your ability or determination. So don't think negatively about a challenge. I want to challenge and encourage you to make up your mind that you want to be accepted by God and that you want to be pleasing to him by making a commitment to tell others about Jesus right this very moment once you make that commitment. These are the questions you should be asking yourself. These are questions that I ask to myself every day and I want to ask these questions to you question number one. What do I need to learn about evangelism second question? Who do I need to share my faith in Jesus with just begin by thinking of five people five people who are the five people you need to share Jesus with question number three. What skill do I need to master when it comes to telling people about Jesus the fourth question? What actions do I need to take in the fifth question? What fear do I need to overcome as you begin to answer these questions train your brain to be aware of the five evangelism styles of sharing your faith in Jesus with others truth bomb when you learn your primary style of evangelism and you truly make up your mind. You're not going to go in your entire life without leading someone to Jesus as your Savior. You will be unstoppable when it comes to telling people about Jesus when you find the approach that fits you. I absolutely love how Mark Middleburg speaks of the five different evangelism styles in his book contagious faith. If you have not read this book contagious faith. I recommend you buy this book today. He calls it the five contagious faith styles style. Number one is a friendship building style style number two is a selfless serving style style number three is story sharing or sharing your testimony with others style number four is reason giving or an apologetic style and style number five is truth-telling evangelism on fire nation.

"And by the time, well, we had Pride Fest. We had about 40 people come out for Pride Fest for Grand Rapids, and I had everybody pray before we went. Most people were like, dude, this is gonna take forever. It went well, but every single person went before the Lord of all evangelism and prayed, humbled themselves before God, because it's not about us. We need the Lord. We need him. It's impossible without him. And as you said, there's times where you have a brother pray. If you're gonna preach, you better have somebody pray over you. And maybe you're walking over to the bush to pray and you realize that just, that's not enough. I need more. I need to go back and get more prayer. And then you'll think, all right, my brother's gonna start, and there he is on his knees praying again, you know? So the importance of prayer, you need the Lord to give you the go. And by his grace, he will. He really will. And let me tell you, there's also other times where you pray and he doesn't. And you say, you know what? Today's the day where I'm just gonna pray. I'm not gonna preach right now. I'm gonna ask to find another. There was a day where I was at 320 and I was not going to preach. And Jordan mentioned to me that that night in prayer that he felt really inclined for me to preach that day. So I preached. I was also trusting the prayer of my brother. I think, Chansky, you called me Jonathan earlier. Everybody needs a Jonathan praying for them as well. So we really do. So not just prayer individually, but we need prayer as a team. And also, what we get to have with these things that we didn't always have is corporate prayer. Where corporately, I saw in your prayer meeting list, you're praying for evangelism that's happening. That is so crucial, so crucial. It's impossible without it. So. For our evangelism, even, you're praying for. It's wonderful. Jordan, that's nice to add. Yeah, you covered most of it, but just the life of prayer in a Christian is wonderful. I was recently given a book by Andrew Murray called With Christ in the School of Prayer, and I highly, highly, highly recommend it.

"This week we've been taking you into the world of espionage to unpack what it's really like to work undercover. In our second episode, we meet Willie Carlin of former MI 5 agent, who was recruited in the 1970s to infiltrate Sinn Fein in Northern Ireland. He spied on the group for 11 years until his cover was blown in 1985, and Willie and his family were quickly evacuated on Margaret Thatcher's jet. Recently, Willie spoke to Monaco's Andrew Murray about his career at MI 5, which he writes about in his book such a spy, my life as an MI 5 agent inside Sinn Fein. Andre began by asking Willie whether joining the British Army in 1965 was considered an unusual thing for a young Catholic man living in Derry. No contrary. Back then and then mid 60s. I mean, there was no trouble. It was kind of factor I worked in the very starting record. Factory made record players edge closed on. And we were all sort of on the door. So most young man of my army my father had been in the army, and it was so nice to, you know, if you knew where to go, it had to be a priest. Or be a soldier. So I became a soldier. Obviously by the time you leave the British Army, the situation in Derry has changed dramatically. It's easy enough to see why MI 5 would approach you, I guess. But for you, what was the appeal of working with MI 5 at that point? Well, at that time, I mean, I don't know. I just looked upon it as a challenge to work for these people who advise me that I would be protected at all times, it would be something behind me watching me. Of course, none of that was true. But I mean, I went ahead and accepted as a challenge. And how did you personally see what was becoming the troubles at that early stage? Did you see it as a binary conflict between Catholic Republicans and the British state or more complicated than that? Well, actually, there was more about the are you see? I mean, I was coming back only as we called it on the very same back to the water stage. Occurred of young people along with soldiers. And I adopted what was called what was the department still a burdens and just going ahead and because I wasn't involved in the red, but there is any other soldier and they beat the hell out of me. So that was my first experience of the troubles. And I came and saw the music, right? I wasn't doing anything, you know? But nevertheless, you later worked for the British Army's force research unit. Did you see that as a way that you personally could either reduce or perhaps even avoid the conflict from escalating? Yeah, well, I mean after I left LA 5, I had nothing to do with troubles for a long time. And then I was at home one day and a young girl came to my mother's house. And she was crying. And she asked for a drink of water and she asked me to leave her down. I left it on the street. She went to host, she knocked the door, going on camera in the court and shot her in the head, and then he cried through the vegetable door and shot her again. And I made my mind over there. That was it. This was just a simple word murder. So I phoned the army represent barracks. Then can I go back to MI 5? But in fact, I ended up with the force research unit. And while you were working for the FIU to what level were you able to rise within Sinn Fein's organization? At the start, I mean, I was just a kind of like everybody else, but the other I lived in didn't have a common term. So me and another guy called that immigrant. We formed the common and eventually I was the person. Because these guys were mostly IRA, they didn't like on the political maintenance. So these said to me, look, you're on the others kind of thing. You go across the cable street to occur counter meets and you take over RVs and bring back their views. And that's where I met much of McDonald on Martin again. So what was your role for the FIU at that point? Was it as straightforward as relaying what you had learned about Sinn Fein and about people like Martin McGuinness? They weren't too sure because what they were interested in was the IRA. You know, I was more or less involved with some feeling. And it became clear to them that the politics of the north of Ireland was just as important, and I became a sort of an outside chance that this might lead somewhere. Especially when they discovered that Martin McGuinness was attempting these political meetings. Did you make any attempt on your own initiative or were you instructed perhaps to try and influence Martin McGuinness's thinking in particular and steer him towards the idea of a political path? But if there was another way of stopping this troubles, you know, he was certainly before it. And I remember during the hunger strike, 81 82, the assembly elections came along in 82.
