In Iain Murray’s chapter on Spurgeon as an Evangelist in his book Heroes he has a section titled “The Character of the Evangelistic Preacher.” As I am finishing my preparation for preaching this Sunday I found this very helpful. He gives 4 characteristics.
1. Evangelists are men full of faith
2. Evangelists are men moved by love
3. True evangelists are the result of personal fellowship and friendship with the Saviour
4. Evangelists are men dependent on the Holy Spirit and prayer
