Evangelism Tip 101

Avoid "high pressure" tactics!

At times, some of us feel compelled to resort to intimidating words and forceful conversation designed to get an on-the-spot commitment to Jesus Christ.  These tactics, however, invariably produce the opposite effect and turn people away from Christ.  If the pressure people experience is the convicting power of the Holy Spirit then it is fine.  But since we are not the Holy Spirit, we should never try to do His work or even try to help Him in doing His work.

Allow the friendship with the not-yet-Christian to grow.  Become a good listener.  It is time to lighten up and avoid the “high pressure” tactics.
