Devotionals by Dr. Ed Young

LIFESTYLE EVANGELISM

Evangelism is not a program or the application of a method; it is a lifestyle. Some are naturally gifted at sharing their faith and others are not, but every Christian is called to testify to the good news that Jesus Christ came to seek and to save the lost.

A Canadian brigadier general was appointed Governor of the African Gold Coast following World War I. He was known as a wise, stalwart ruler and an inspiration to his subjects. A friend of the Governor once noticed a saying on his mirror that puzzled him. It said, "For God, For King, For Country." His friend said, "Sir, you see this every morning when you stand before your mirror. What does it mean to you?"

The Governor answered, "For God doesn't mean that much to me, but For King means a bit more. And For Country—well, that means everything to me." His friend answered, "I can see that king and country are important in your life, but Governor, you've never sought to know God." Touched by his friend's forthrightness, the Governor said, "How does one get to know God?" The man replied, "You get to know God by learning about His Son, Jesus Christ." Then he told him how to invite the Lord into his life.

  

There is no reason for us to be intimidated by worldly power. We are empowered by the Holy Spirit when we speak of Christ, and we must seize the moment when opportunities arise.

MEMORY VERSE  

I PETER 3:18
Sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to anyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you…

About Dr. Ed Young

Dr. H. Edwin Young was born in Laurel, Mississippi. He accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior at the age of 12 through the leading of his pastor's wife, Mrs. Gates.

Following graduation from high school in Laurel, Dr. Ed Young entered the University of Alabama as an engineering major. Mid-way through his freshman year, challenged by an atheist in his dorm who questioned his belief in God, he began to seek God's purpose for his life. Six months later, he surrendered to the call to preach the Gospel, and enrolled at Mississippi College to continue his education.

On June 28, 1959, he married Jo Beth Landrum. Dr. Young's preparation for the ministry continued at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina. His first pastorate was in North Carolina, and he pastored in North and South Carolina until 1978 when he moved to Houston, Texas. He became the pastor at Second Baptist Church where he continues to pastor today. The congregation has grown from 2,000 members in 1978 to 6 campuses and we have reached over 70 thousand members.

Dr. Young was elected president of the Southern Baptist Convention in June of 1992 and again in June, 1993. He is the author of many books including, Total Heart Health, The 10 Commandments of Parenting, and The 10 Commandments of Marriage. Dr. Young's broadcast ministry, The Winning Walk, can be seen and heard across North America and throughout the world.
