#1 Spinning a web to catch the lost

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr.

Kyfingers@aol.com

We must develop a system to bring others to the Lord.

This is part #1 of 3.

This is a form that goes with the lessons: SPINNING A WEB FOR LOST SOULS. The answers are found in the lessons.

I print out this handout and lay it in the hands of the people.

TEXT:

Text: Prov. 11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life: and he that WINNETH souls is wise.

A SUPER CHALLENGE:

See the need, Spinning a web for lost souls.

-------------------People are born a day.

-------------------People die a minute without Christ.

-------------------People die per hour without Christ.

------------------- People die per day without Christ.

The challenge is:

what can I do about the lost dying

with no hope?

==================================================

THE GALLOP POLL SAYS:

------------------- % of the unchurched people plan on becoming active members of a church in the near future.

-------------------% of unchurched people want their kids to have moral training and a spiritual education.

------------------- of unchurched people pray,

believe Jesus is God’s son, and believe in life after death.

The challenge is: WHAT CAN I DO ABOUT IT?

============================================

WHY DO PEOPLE ATTEND CHURCH?

Walk in............................ Visitation.....................................

The Program.....................Sunday School..........................

Like the Pastor..................Crusade-revival..........................

Special need.....................Friend-relative.............................

The challenge is: WHAT CAN I DO ABOUT IT?

What stradegy can I use to win lost souls for the kingdom?

Spin a web for growth?

Text: Prov. 11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life: and he that WINNETH souls is wise.

Recently I watched a little spider for a long time.

With great effort the little spider wove a beautiful web.

There was a network of silken thread spun to serve as the spiders nest, and a shelter, but the web was more than that.

The web would serve as a snare or entanglement for a food source.

This work of the web could be the difference, in growth or death.

Seems the little spider had a plan.

The spider prepared for tomorrow in her work today.

Seems the spider knew the fly would not come up and say,

"Here, I am your dinner."

If there is another generation, the family would depend on this web as a lifeline.

Over several days, I saw this web become a work of art.

The morning’s dew would glisten on the web.

Food came.

A few weeks later I saw a little cocoon like sack.

The momma spider laid her precious eggs in that sack.

Everything depended upon those days, ... when momma spider saw ahead well enough to make plans and build a web.

We need to have foresight of faith in the church today and build webs to catch life and sustain the growth for this generation and generations to come.

Isa. 66:8 .... When Zion travails sons and daughters shall be born.

We need a game plan, short term and long term.

No coach would take a team on the field without scouting the other team.

This strategy started with weight lifting in the winter, practice in the spring, summer two a day practices, watching game tapes, and preparation.

IN THE CHURCH, WE OFTEN HAVE THE CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS AWARDS SYSTEM.

Columbus had no directions when he left port in 1492.

Columbus had no time schedule.

He didn’t know where he was going and he didn’t know where he had been.

Columbus just accidentally accomplished his trip to "INDIA?"

A GOOD SOUL WINNING PROGRAM CANNOT SUSTAIN ITSELF BY ACCIDENT.

To catch fish, you must go to some source of water?

WE NEED TO SPIN A WEB FOR GROWTH.

WE CAN NEVER SPIN THIS WEB UNTIL THE LEADERSHIP SEES THE LOST AND BACKSLIDDEN and allows the Holy Spirit to ignite the flame.

Then this flame’s vision must be fanned to all.

We have a super challenge set before us? ...

WHO CARES?

WHO IS ACTIVELY DEVELOPING A PLAN FOR THE LOST?

We hear much about Spiritual gifts, but very little about the fruit of the Spirit?

We hear prayers for prosperity, but where is the cry for the lost and the backslidden?

If I believe in heaven, I also believe in HELL!

Listen to the sounds and smell the odors that spew forth from an eternal HELL?

90% of pastoring is trying to keep the flock together, away from spiritual cannibalism?

As long as co-labourers are seen as enemies,

the Enemy laughs as he takes another load to Hell?

LET’S LOOK AT SOME STATISTICS,

we will leave the interpretation and analysis to you:

345,000 humans are born per day.

Everyday that goes by finds more souls turning to the "age of accountability." After this day, there will be more weighed in the balances.

101 people die per minute WITHOUT KNOWING CHRIST.
