Man’s way or God’s way

Is evangelism the most important thing? Is numbers the most important thing? When I was a new christian I thought I had to tell someone about Jesus all the time. I would fail and come under bondage, guilt, condemnation. How do you approach a stranger and tell them about Jesus? Do you use a method, a programme, or go to a seminar?

Jesus traveled through Samaria and came to a well and rested. He was in the right place at the right time, he was led by the Holy Spirit. A woman came to the well, a conversation started, and Jesus told her who he was. There was no formula to this.

Jesus said “the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.

We are dependent on the Holy Spirit and it is He who draws people to the Father. We can not make anyone become a believer.
