“Go ye” means, “Go me.” Evangelism that is most productive is PERSONAL evangelism. It is seeing the soul as the most important thing in the world and targeting those with whom we come in contact each day. In this evangelism becomes PURPOSEFUL. We can target the entire world, but we must proceed one soul at a time. Read the following passages: Philippians 2:19-24; 1 Thessalonians 1:8-10.

(Ed. Note: The article above should give every Christian cause to reflect on his personal responsibility in spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ. That responsibility is clearly set forth in the commission of the Lord: Matthew 28:19-20  Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. One will immediately note that the disciples/apostles to whom the commission was given were commanded to teach those who were baptized to observe what he had commanded them, the apostles. And what was that commandment? Go! Teach! Baptize! It appears, then, that the Lord expects every Christian to be an evangelist—to the extent of his ability and opportunity (2 Cor. 8:11-12). ACQ).
