About this Episode

Pastor Karl Roberts is one of the men who inspired me to become a pastor. He loves the Lord deeply, and if you are around him you will know it by him sharing his savior with those around him. My parents, over 25 years ago, started going to the church pastor Karl was ministering to, and after over 40 years of ministry he is still serving Jesus any way he can. He brings great insights on how you can personally share Jesus with others.

In episode 5, Pastor Karl Roberts speaks about his life and ministry, namely how he has grown in sharing Jesus with a lost world. Karl had multiple mentors who taught him how to love people and follow the great commission in Matthew 28:18–20 of sharing the message of Jesus with his community. Now he share his knowledge with you of how to do personal evangelism in your community.

One of my favorite things about being around Karl Roberts is his genuineness of wanting to be your friend. He does not comes across as pushy, but shows his urgency of loving people enough to take time and share the gospel with someone who does not know Jesus.

Scriptures Mentioned

“And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”” (Joshua 24:15, ESV)

“And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”” (Matthew 28:18–20, ESV)

“He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord.” (Proverbs 18:22, ESV)

“An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels.” (Proverbs 31:10, ESV)

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.” (Romans 1:16, ESV)

“And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.” (Hebrews 11:6, ESV)

“And one of the scribes came up and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, asked him, “Which commandment is the most important of all?” Jesus answered, “The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” And the scribe said to him, “You are right, Teacher. You have truly said that he is one, and there is no other besides him.” (Mark 12:28–32, ESV)
