Week after week, study after study, sermon after sermon; “Be better witnesses. Tell your friends about Jesus. Be an evangelist.”

Here’s why it won’t work.

It won’t work until we are captivated by what God has done for us in Christ.

People will not talk about what they do not love.

Psalm 105:1–6 (ESV) — 1 Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples! 2 Sing to him, sing praises to him; tell of all his wondrous works! 3 Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice! 4 Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually! 5 Remember the wondrous works that he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he uttered, 6 O offspring of Abraham, his servant, children of Jacob, his chosen ones!

What follows is an incredible role-call of God’s wondrous acts:

  • He is the LORD our God
  • He remembers
  • He confirmed
  • He allowed
  • He summoned
  • He sent
  • He made
  • He turned
  • He sent
  • He turned
  • He spoke
  • He gave
  • He struck
  • He spoke
  • He struck
  • He brought
  • He spread
  • He opened
  • He remembered
  • He brought
  • He gave

Fill your heart with the glory of what God has done. Fill your people’s hearts with the glory of what God has done.

Keep filling hearts until “Praise the LORD!” flows out. Then with it will come this:

Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples! Sing to him, sing praises to him; tell of all his wondrous works!

To the praise of His glory!
