The Evangelism of Spontaneity

It occurs to me again that we are the strongest witnesses when we are least aware of it and when we are not trying to be witnesses. In fact we are merely going about our business or routine soaking up as much of God's truth and loving presence as we can individually or corporately and, unbeknownst to us, someone (or more than one is a bystander or a passerby and they get an earful or an eyeful or both. Knowing this I still cannot simply cease my conscious efforts at evangelism, I am compelled to it I believe by the Holy Spirit within and by the Great Commission, but perhaps it removes some of the pressure from those efforts and allows me to function a little less self-consciously as a witness. The conscious evangelism supplements the unconscious evangelism. The "witnessing" complements the being (of) a witness. But being a witness does not always involve or even usually involve the sharing of the gospel. With a little more intentionality and forethought our witness can expand in places to include the essence of the good news about God's grace in Jesus. With a little preparation perhaps traces of it can leak through in some story or illustration, or visual prop. What is in our hearts and minds will eventually spill out after all; but the spontaneous outspillings seem the most refreshing of all! We're considering the evangelism of spontaneous being here, or, to say it another way, the evangelism of being spontaneous.
