Jesus Christ – the Son

God Father, the Son Jesus and the Holy Spirit and three Persons in one Godhead. This is the central truth in Christian religion and it’s called the Trinity Dogma. Incarnation is the adoption of human nature by the Second Person of the Holy Trinity. The Son of God, descending into the womb of the Virgin, became man without ceasing to be God. C.S. Lewis when contemplating this gospel said: “Since then, it is good for God and man to be together”.

Jesus Christ – God’s Word sent to the world

In the Gospel of Saint John there is a statement that Jesus Christ is the Word of God (John 1: 1.14). Using the term “Word” Saint John introduced to his readers the truth of God in Jesus Christ, the Living Word of God, fully God and fully man, who came to reveal himself to men and to redeem the sins of all who will believe in him. That gospel was later shared with whole world by word evangelism, preaching done by apostle Peter and other followers who were listening preaching done by Jesus.

Holy Spirit – the Third Person

The Holy Spirit is the Third Person of the Holy Trinity and is of the same divine nature as the Father and the Son. Before his death, our Savior promised his disciples to send “another Helper” (John 14:16) when he would no longer be with them. When the the Third Person of the Holy Trinity was sent upon the disciples of the early Church, they then fully discovered what Jesus meant. They experienced a deep sense of security, experienced an unexpected joy in faith and received charisms ( ‘gifts of grace’), i.e. they were able to prophesy, heal and perform miracles in their life (by serving others in the society and by that proving the truth about Jesus, faith, heaven, God and salvation).

Holy Spirit – Life of the Churches

The Holy Spirit “gives life” (John 6:63) to all Christians and to the whole Church, which without the Holy Spirit would have been, so to speak, forsaken by God. Without the “gifts of the Holy Spirit” (1 Corinthians 12), the Church would be a dead, soulless organization.

Evangelism meaning

Jesus told: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19). The Lord Jesus addressed his disciples with these words, sending them for missionary work. Christ’s desire was that the Good News of salvation should reach wherever possible, that His teaching, which presents the true image of God and the new truth about the redeemed man, would be known and accepted for the joy and salvation of all.

Preaching for audience to spread truth about Christ Resurrection

Truth about our Savior was not in the Bible shortly after his Resurrection and the Ascesion. The three evangelists, Luke, Mark and Matthew, wrote down the history of Christ around AD 60. John probably did this 20-30 years later. It should also be remembered that in this era, first and foremost, eyewitness testimonies circulated. So what the evangelists wrote was credible to the early Christians, because many of them confirmed these accounts – words that Jesus said, examples of miracles that he did, how he touched people’s lives and how people who listened Him became believers. New Testament contains 4 Gospels and other holy scriptures that were inspired by Holy Spirit and are God’s will for his children that their mission on earth is to get to know Him better and to believe in His message about heaven, Jesus, the Church, life, etc.

Church – for the gospel to be preached

Jesus gathered around him few people to preach the Good News. From them he chose twelve (Luke 6: 12-16), with whom he spent a lot of time, talked to whom and explained the mysteries of the kingdom of God in more detail than to others. In this new fellowship saint Peter and the other apostles were the Savior’s closest. The new community founded by Christ was to be the beginning and creator of the union of humanity with God and in God. Jesus chose his followers to transform and unite the world with Him. Jesus sent his apostles (Luke 9: 1-16) and then seventy-two other followers (Luke 10: 1-12) to proclaim and spread his Gospel and practice world transformation into a kingdom of goodness and truth.

Biblical evangelism

Evangelist saint Luke in Acts of the Apostles describes Saul’s conversion when he hard Jesus. Converted sinner became one of the most powerful saints – Saint Paul. To receive power – but inspired by Jesus and love towards Him and a wish that christianity should be known by everyone on earth – that was the life vocation for Saint Paul.

Saint Paul to evangelize countries

St. Paul began a great apostolate in Syria, Asia Minor, Greece, Macedonia, Italy, and Spain. Thousands of kilometers traveled, it is a real missionary marathon. Savior became everything in his life for him, and with His name on his lips, because of his faith, he gave his life around AD 67, when, as a citizen of Rome, he was beheaded with a sword.

Paul’s faith and evangelization helped to spread christianity into people’s hearts who started to pray and to live according to Jesus teaching. Paul’s teaching increased number of christians.

Church needs to proclaim gospel message – Jesus Christ in media

In the communication for the 47th Social Communications Day in 2013 Pope Benedict XVI wrote: “Social media needs the involvement of all who are aware of the value of dialogue, sound debate, logical argument”. Benedict XVI noted that the development of digital social networks is conducive to the creation of a new “agora” – a public space where people share their ideas, information, opinions, and where new ties and forms of community can also arise. Their culture and changes in forms and styles of communication pose challenges for those who want to speak about truth and values. The Pope recalled that, as in other types of media, the significance and effectiveness of various forms of expression depends more on popularity than on their actual importance and credibility. By contrast, popularity is often related to fame or persuasive strategies rather than to the logic of argumentation.

Christians in 21. century – evangelization in digital world

The Pope called for the presence of believers and religious topics in social networks. “Believers see more and more that if the Good News cannot be known also in the digital world, it may be absent from the experience of many people for whom this existential space is important. The digital world is not a parallel or purely virtual world, but for many people, especially the youngest, it is part of everyday reality”- said Benedict XVI. He also pointed out that a careful understanding of this environment and learning its language is a prerequisite for a meaningful presence within it. Message about christianity meaning, the Bible, heaven must reach internet society.

Personal evangelism

Deep faith leads believer to authentic life. Contemporary scripture witness is present evangelist who will spread message from the gospel about God’s love to all people. “Faith is the most precious gift we have received. We can’t just hide it for ourselves. Everyone has the right to know the value of this gift and accept it” – said pope Benedict XVI. All that the Bible says is not only history of lives, but a gospel that should be still the best example for happiness. Christianity changes the world because christians want to be just like Christ. It means that christians try to be saint by correcting their mistakes, by confesing sins that they have. Christianity is about following the best Example – Jesus Christ.

Christ followers

It’s worth to mention in few words how to follow the good path of faith and not to do anything wrong that would keep us apart from Jesus. God’s children who respond for His love message here on earth need to grow week by week to become better and better. The best practice is to follow the example (many examples) provided by saints in the Gospel. Saint Paul’s answer for God’s love message is not the only example. Evangelists help us to understand the preach. Apart from the histories provided by each evangelist and other Bible authors good inspirations can be found through all the centuries as christianity has many saints who were evangelists followers and who tried to apply all Gospel teaching in their lives. Believing are often impressed by other saints who found in the Gospel a reason for life.

Holy communion

Last but not least. To be in union with Jesus Christ we need holy communion. Evangelists describe this moment in the Gospel. Jesus established Eucharist shortly before His death. Each of the evangelists participated in the Last Supper. Even in that Time Jesus had time to evangelize and to explain his audience how important this sacrament was. The Eucharist is union with Love itself. This Love burns away all the remnants of venial sin, purifies and enables us to do good. The Eucharist is like a protective layer that makes it harder for temptations to induce a person to sin. The Eucharist is a moment of an amazing and unique relationship with God Himself. The Eucharist creates this bond, sustains it, saves and renews it. If someone wants to be a modern evangelist, the best way to be close to Jesus Christ and not to get lost it to pray, read the Bible but also to take a holy communion.
