A fisherman doesn’t go fishing in his bathtub
A fisherman doesn’t go fishing in his bathtub. If he expects to catch fish, he casts in his net OUT WHERE THE FISH ARE, away from the house, out in the streams, lakes and waterways of the wilderness.
A farmer doesn’t harvest grain in his dining room. If he expects to reap the ripened grain, he must wield his sickle through the heat of the day, OUT WHERE THE GRAIN IS RIPE, away from the house, out in the broad fields where the grain stands ripe unto harvest.
A soulwinner doesn’t win souls only inside the church building. If he expects to reap the lost he must carry his witness OUT WHERE THE SINNERS ARE, away from the sanctuary, out in the markets, on the streets, in jails, hospitals, houses of prostitution, in the homes of sinners out among the people where the lost souls are. This is evangelism!
