Knowing nothing save...

Evangalism isn't about elequance or intellect, tactics or techniques. It is about being single minded. It is about only knowing about one thing in your life and therefore only being able to talk about one thing -- Jesus and His death upon the cross.
1 Cor. 2:1-5:
(2:1) When I came to you, brothers, I did not come with eloquence or superior wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God. (2:2) For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. (2:3) I came to you in weakness and fear, and with much trembling. (2:4) My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit's power, (2:5) so that your faith might not rest on men's wisdom, but on God's power.

This doesn't mean that we are ignorant of other topics, but what it does mean is that every topic becomes an avenue through which Christ is known by us in our lives. An avenue through which we identify with God.

By the shear volume of opportunities that you will create with people, you will be more productive a witness, even if you never rise to elequence or intelligence.

See, there is hope for me yet.

(too ugly to care, to stupid to quit; that's me)

talk at y'all later!!
