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.

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.
