6 Consequences Of Neglecting Personal Evangelism

Sinners cannot get saved without the preaching of the gospel. It is the soul-winner’s duty to preach to the sinners and thereby get them save from the consequences of sin.
If we fail to preach the gospel of salvation to the dying world, God himself will be greatly disappointed in us for not being obedient to him.
In this post, we are looking at the implications of neglecting personal evangelism.

The implication of neglecting personal evangelism includes;

1.             The loss and waste of ripened harvest.

There are many sinners who are looking and waiting for us to preach to them, those are the ripped harvest and we must go and do as the Lord had commanded us to do. Mark 16:15.

2.    Requirement of sinners’ blood from negligent soul-winners (Ezekiel 3:17-21; 33:1-16).
This is the dangerous aspect of neglecting the command of “Go” and preach the gospel.  If we fail and the sinner died in his sinful state, his blood will be required in our hand by Christ. That is why we must always be active in the work of God.

3.    Christ being ashamed of Christians that neglect to witness (Mark 8:38).
Christ will be ashamed of us because we are ashamed to declare His words to the world.

4.    Loss of soul-winners’ reward (Daniel 12:3; Proverbs 11:30);
There is a reward waiting for those who declare JESUS to the world and draw man to Christ the savior, but if we fail to carry out the Divine mandate given to us by Christ (Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:15), then, we will lose the precious reward.

5.     Spiritual decline and stunted growth of local churches:
The  believer who do not preach the gospel will see his/her spiritual fervency decline and the church of God not grow.

6.    Delay in answer to prayer. 

The consequences of neglecting personal evangelism on the part of the sinners, the soul-winners and the church are so great. Every believer must therefore, wake up to this great responsibility. We must rise up to renew our first love for Christ (Revelation 2:1-5).
