In Romans, chapter 10 Paul talks of his desire to see his fellow Jews accept Christ, and in v13 he states: ‘Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’ Then, in the next verse (v14), Paul goes on to pose a number of penetrating questions: ‘How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?’ How indeed? How can the church grow; how can people today believe and come to faith in Christ; how can they call on the name of the Lord and be saved if they don’t actually hear the gospel proclaimed; if we don’t evangelise? Evangelism is key. Without evangelism Christianity could, potentially, die out in just one generation. We need to tell people about Jesus – just as we were told about Him.
