Our soul winning passage from the Word of God today is Matthew 10:16 which reads: "Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves."

Allow me to share with you some important insights regarding this Scripture from David Guzik's Commentaries on the Bible: "Jesus freely, and honestly, admits His disciples will face persecution, and because they are to have no armies behind them, He sends them as sheep in the midst of wolves. Despite their vulnerable position, Jesus' followers are not to defend themselves with worldly forms of power. They are to remain harmless as doves, though wise as serpents."

Our soul winning quote today is from Luis Palau. He said: "Evangelism is not an option for the Christian life."

Our soul winning devotional is part 60 of our series titled "What Evangelism Is" from Dave Earley and David Wheeler.

Evangelism Is...Incarnational Living

Here are some principles of incarnational living:

1. Incarnational Living Is an Expression of Our New Birth. Because we are reborn as Christians into the image of Christ and have become genuine members of His family, we are given a new nature. The new nature, which is our spiritual DNA, is the nature of Christ being revealed through our new desires and attitudes. This expression of our spiritual DNA is especially true when it comes to evangelism and the desire to reach the unsaved. God's desire is that all men come to Him in a personal relationship. Therefore, we should also desire to be used of God in this process. In other words, there should always be a family resemblance between Christ and His children!
