What Is The Most Effective Way Of Preaching The Gospel?

The greatest and most inspiring leader and preacher that ever lived was Jesus.

It isn't by coincidence that He commands the largest following and religious group on Earth.

The reason He was able to inspire humans to that unparalleled degree was His extraordinary leadership. He was a leader that led His followers not just by Words but also by example.

His disciples who played an important and sacrificial role in bringing His Gospel to the world must have been really inspired by the Gospel He preached, but I believe what inspired them most was the Gospel He lived.

He was a leader that didn't just teach His disciples how to serve or to humble themselves, but literally took a bucket and towel and started to clean and wash the feet of His own servants.

Above all, He was the Good shepherd who humbled Himself, went as a lamb before the slaughter, and laid down His life for His sheep.

So if He being their Lord and Master could humble Himself and serve to that degree, how much more they being His servants?

Hence the selfless and sacrificial lives His disciples went on to live for His Name and Gospel sake. They were inspired by the life and example of the best Leader that ever was. That's the reason why we have His Gospel presently with us today.

It's sad though to see how much such selfless and exemplary leadership of Jesus, and also His disciples who followed His example, is lacking in the present day church.

I pray the day would return when the church was led by leaders who did not just lead and preach the Gospel with their mouths but also with their lives.

God bless.

A young man God is using mightily to reach the unreached with the Gospel and bringing pagans to Christ, called me a couple of years back and said:

"I'd be eternally grateful to God for your life... I didn't need to read the Bible... to be inspired to do what I'm doing today. It's your life that inspired me... It's because of your example that made me to be so generous today that I don't give to be compensated or recognized. Although it's been over 10 years now, you can see how fresh what you did is still on my mind..."

While he was saying this, I was in shock and close to tears. I didn't know how to respond to a thing like that. It was dumbfounding.

This was someone I first met sometime in 2003, at the early stages of my walk with God where it was all about Him.

And He said he didn't need to read the Bible to be inspired to do what he's doing today. My life and example was enough preaching to inspire him to do likewise.

That wasn't even the first time I have heard such a thing. I have had several occasions where I would see someone being generous and compassionate, but would think the person had that in him before we met. But to my surprise, they'd tell me that they weren't so beforehand, but it was after they got to know me that they became so.

These instances proved to me the efficacy of preaching by example, and that it really worked, because I never expected this and wasn't even trying to achieve this.

I was just trying to love God, to do the things that pleased Him and to keep His Word, but it turned out be a very effective way of preaching the Gospel.

God bless.

By practicing what you preach.

Preaching is by actions, not words.

From Door to Door and from House to House. Like Christ commanded. And also by living and exemplary life, by practicing what we preach and setting examples like Christ did.

Preaching doesn't convert people, it only makes you feel guilty momentarily.

This section comes alive only on Sundays. The best way to preach the gospel is spreading it to tribes isolated from the world. Without literature to counter your teachings they will accept the word wholeheartedly. Teach the children because they are the future of the clan. They are also quick to learn and imbibe foreign concepts.

Character and behaviour.

Not by shouting or carry big Bible.

Infact Christ like Character is what the early believers and missionaries where known of

Nobody takes gospel serious anymore
Because y'all talk TOO MUCH without Action.

If you yourself that is preaching
cannot practice what you preach
Then why TF should i take you serious

Everybody can preach. Politicians preach to the masses everyday. Preaching alone is just words

Emulating what you preach solidifies preaching which then makes an impact and change lives

There is no kingdom information that people are not privy to. What irks people the most about Christianity is the negative radicality we display. So, the best bet at preaching still remains through living a Christ-like life. "Let your light (in this case,life) so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your father in heaven."
