What does successful evangelism look like? Is it a stadium filled to the rafters? Or that moment when someone bows their head and prays to receive Christ? We’re so used to thinking that success means big numbers or reaching a specific goal that it can really cloud our view of what it means to fulfill the Great Commission. So how do you define success when it comes to sharing your faith?

Power to Change founder and lifelong evangelist, Dr. Bill Bright, had a very simple and powerful definition of success. He said, “Successful witnessing is simply sharing Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit and leaving the results to God.” That’s it. Isn’t that encouraging? If you have taken the opportunity to talk about Jesus with someone in the power of the Holy Spirit, then you have been successful.
