The following blog article was originally published by Tony Miano of Living Waters. I found it to be a very edifying, and highly convicting, article. I pray that those of you engaged in evangelism will take this matter to heart:
“For Ezra had set his heart to study the Law of the LORD, and to do it and to teach his statutes and rules in Israel” (Ezra 7:10).
“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15).
One of the greatest joys and privileges in my life is to fellowship and serve with, disciple, encourage, and learn from other biblical open-air preachers. I care a great deal for this relatively small subculture within the Body of Christ. They are my spiritual fathers, brothers, and sons. They are my comrades in arms. They are my patrol car partners. I know that many in this family would do anything for me; and I would do anything for them. I love these folks.
I want to do something for them, now. I want to call them to a greater level of maturity.”
