Love and Honor Should Accompany Healing Ministry — A Quote by Chris Overstreet in, “A Practical Guide to Evangelism — Supernaturally”

“While stepping out in faith by taking risks, it is important that we remember to be motivated by love. The people we are ministering to need to feel loved and honored. They’re people, not projects. God wants us to step out in faith so that we release miracles to people around us, but we need to be careful that our risks don’t become dishonoring.”

Testimonies Challenge us not to Settle for Operating in Our Own Strength — A Quote by Bill Johnson in “Release the Power of Jesus”

“Without a constant awareness of God and the testimonies that speak of His nature, we will inevitably reduce our vision and ministry down to what we can accomplish with our gifts and strength. God is obviously the One who gave us these gifts, but they are like sails on a boat, designed to catch His wind. Without the wind of the Holy Spirit filling them, they have no eternal purpose. He comes to direct their course beyond the reach of human possibility. Without God these abilities have no effect on eternity.”

To Empower a Weak Person, Ask Questions That Help Them be Responsible — A Quote by Danny Silk in “Keep Your Love On”

“When they [powerful people] encounter a powerless person, they are not tempted to dive into an unhealthy triangulation dynamic. They hear a victim’s sob story and ask, ‘So what are you going to do about that? What have you tried? What else could you try?’ These questions confront powerless people with their responsibility and their capacity to make choices and control themselves.”

The ‘How to’ of Prophetic Evangelism — A Quote by Chris Overstreet in, “A Practical Guide to Evangelism — Supernaturally”

“Another way to present the Gospel to someone is to ask him or her, ‘Has anyone given you an encouraging word today?’ Wait for a response. As you are waiting, ask the Holy Spirit to give you an encouraging prophetic word for them. After you’ve given the prophetic word, explain to them that Jesus loves them and has a plan for their life. Ask them simply, ‘Have you ever had an experience with the presence of God before? Do you know Jesus personally? Would you like to experience His presence?'”

Testimony Releases Faith for God to Act — A Quote by Bill Johnson in “Release the Power of Jesus”

“‘For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.'”

“Testimonies prophesy God’s intent and nature to all who will hear… I have intentionally shared testimonies when I minister and have closely observed the results, which have been consistently stunning… When they heard the testimony of what God had done, the anointing on the testimony opened a realm of possibility. The atmosphere became pregnant with the opportunity for the miracle that had been described in the testimony to be duplicated. When they engaged their faith and stepped into that opportunity in the slightest measure, that possibility became reality.”
