Now I know people will argue with me on this and say the Beatitudes or Him talking to a massive amount of people was a crusade, and that's fine, but the thing is, Jesus never planned those occasions or spent a dime on an event to gather people. He just spoke life and healed people wherever He went and the crowds would gather. His lifestyle was an outreach and that’s exactly what He taught His disciples to do. If believers would simply preach the good news and heal the sick everywhere they went as a lifestyle, there would be no need for events, crusades or outreaches. It would save a lot of money that could be used for people who actually need it.
Crusades and outreaches have a general effect, but nothing close to what it would be if believers did what Jesus told them to do as a lifestyle. Jesus said in Matt 9:37;38, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” Not everyone is called to be an Evangelist, quit their job and go out on the streets every day. But we all come in contact people on a daily basis, whether at our job, get-togethers, shopping at the supermarket, gas station, etc.. I’m not saying that we got to go out there and tell everyone that Jesus died on the cross for their sins and get them to pray the sinner’s prayer. What I’m saying is that there are many ways to minister to people. You can share testimonies in a conversation when people ask how you've been, impart wisdom, or offer to pray for people, which is what I’ve seen be the most effective.
Imagine what this country would look like if all believers ministered to people IN LOVE (not being pushy and arrogant) everywhere they went at the Holy Spirit’s leading, moving in signs and wonders.. There is no question that this country would change. Then we could stop complaining about how bad it’s getting because we’ve finally started doing something about it, like Jesus told His bride to do 2000 years ago..
