Laurie is leading a Harvest Crusade in Duluth, Georgia at the Infinite Energy Center on September 24-25 of this year.
Laurie, Rick Gage, and Franklin & Will Graham are the only evangelicals in America holding crusades.
Whether through a crusade, local church ministry or personal evangelism - the Gospel must be communicated. Last year baptisms in the Southern Baptist Convention were the lowest since 1948. The Gospel doesn't return void (Isaiah 55:11), so this means we're not sharing it.
Laurie reminds us of three things in sharing the Good News:
1). Effective sharing begins with caring. Laurie asks, "Do you care about people who do not love the Lord?" We must genuinely care about people who are lost.
2). When should we share the Gospel? Whenever. We must always be available for the Holy Spirit. Christians can become known as hoarders. Christians can't use the excuse, "I don't feel led to tell others about Christ."
3). There's power in our personal story. Laurie said, "Every testimony is valid because there is someone out there a lot like you."
God has given us Biblical truth to share with others. The primary way God has chosen to reach people is through other people. God uses people to reach people.
