009: Seek Other's JoyPsalm 67:3-4 “Let the peoples praise you, O God; let all the peoples praise you! Let the nations be glad and sing for joy, for you judge the peoples with equity and guide the nations upon earth.”
(The words “peoples” and “nations” refer to every ethnic group in the world.)
The end goal of evangelism is worship—that more and more people would become life-long worshippers of the one true God. God created humans to be worshippers and therefore humans are happiest and most satisfied when we are worshipfully living for God. Therefore, the goal of evangelism is also the joy of all people.
Everyone’s greatest happiness will be found in and only in a loving relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Money, family, success, career, sex, entertainment—these will not bring lasting happiness to anyone. Even though many people do not yet realize it, what their hearts truly need is God. Therefore, the greatest act of love you can do for someone is to introduce them to Jesus Christ. Love your neighbor by seeking their ultimate joy.
