Kenye West Evangelism:
Kenye West evangelism is a remarkable but subtle one to identify with. The bold steps Kenye West has taken to identify with the Gospel of Christ is something fellow believers in Christ should be careful while rendering their judgment.
For many believers the past life and even present life of Kenye West is a factor that must be dealt with. But then one thing every believer should take home from his boldness is that, irrespective of what his past looks like he’s in for Christ. He is actively in for Christ. The job of winning souls is the general work Christ gave to all His believers. The account of Matthew in the gospels states it this way:
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
Kenye West Evangelism Is Gain:
Arguably, the assertion of Jesus Christ in the quotations above is something most of His believers today aren’t obeying. Many believers of Jesus Christ are eagerly attending church services but on the contrary, they have less zeal in evangelism. The gain of the ministry of Jesus Christ isn’t expansion in the physical structure but in the number of souls won into the Kingdom.
All the activities of the four in fivefold ministry are encapsulated in the act of winning souls. The only thing that replicates and establishes the purpose of heaven in the church is the act of winning souls. The church building is useless if its members do not go out to win souls for Christ. Considering the fact that it’s through evangelism people will get to know who Christ is and then believe in Him. Apostle Paul puts it better this way:
“How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? Also how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!”
Kenye West Brings People to Christ:
The implication here is that, for people to call on the name of Jesus, they have to know Him. Also for them to believe in Him they must hear about Him. There’s no way they can hear of Him without a preacher. Someone like Kenye West has to talk to people about Him and only by this they will believe. Apostle Paul admonishing Timothy his son in the Lord has this to say to him:
“But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.”
2 Timothy 4:5
The directive above is not just for Timothy but for as many that have believed in Christ. It says “Do the work of an evangelist.” Here again, it is important to state that doing the work of an evangelist is a sure way to proof one’s ministry in Christ. If one says he has a ministry in Christ, and he doesn’t do the work of an evangelist, it implies that he has no ministry in Christ. Here comes the Kenye West evangelism. He openly declared that he is for Christ. He didn’t stop there, he went ahead to proof that he is actually for Christ.
For a man of his caliber in the R&B music industry to dump such a lucrative and money spinning industry means much. He must have been vilified by many of colleagues and confidants. They must have seen his gesture towards Christ as an act of stupidity. But he went ahead to say yes to Christ and to say yes to do the work of an evangelist. The video below speaks a lot about his wiliness to do the work of God.
The Doubt About His Conversion:
However, many are of the opinion that a quick pass mark should not be given to Mr. Kenye West. This notion is coming from the backdrop that he may in the nearest future decide to go back to his vomit. So, many among believers in Christ are holding his conversion with the tip of fingers. However, the question of trust plays in here. On the other hand the person who can ascertain his reliability is God.
On this note, we will all cross our fingers and watch and see what he will become but as it stands now he is on course and firing up the flame of the gospel of Christ. Instead of gazing to see him backslide, let’s pray that he will continuously bubble in the strength of Christ. Let him continue to cause heaven to rejoice by doing the work of an evangelist.
An excerpt from what Joel and Victoria Osteen said about Kenye West at Lakewood Church:
In our service at 11am on Sunday, Kanye shared his past struggles and low points with extraordinary transparency. And pointed to the only One who has real, lasting answers to life’s biggest questions. “The only superstar is Jesus,” Kanye declared boldly from the pulpit here at Lakewood.
And finally, I’m thrilled that due to the popularity of the Sunday Service Experience, we had many guests who do not normally attend church. Many people passed through our doors Sunday, who have never been in a church before or perhaps even heard the good news that they can have a fresh start in life through Jesus Christ. They heard that good news.
