TEXT- ROMANS 1:16, 1 COR 9:16
To win a soul is to catch that soul for the Lord; to see him added to the Lord, not merely to the local church attendance. Every soul is won by the Lord Himself but He uses and is dependent upon his children for the accomplishment of his purpose. We are to be used to introduce Christ to the needy souls- John 1:40-42
A GOING CHURCH - MARK 16:15-18
A going church is a growing church likewise the going Christian. You must engage in the operation “go ye” to grow in the right pattern of Christ Jesus. God gives the ”going anointing” and not “a staying anointing”. The availability of ready vessels causes the oil to keep flowing – 2 Kings 4:6
Jesus Christ went about – Acts 10:38
Jonah went to Nineveh- Jonah 1:2
Paul & Barnabas went out- Acts 13:1-4
Timothy was sent- 1 Cor 4:17
We should be a going church – Matthew 28:19-20.
USE YOUR BEST
As Christians, we must discover our unique approaches to soul winning individually. Focus on them in order to grow effectively as a soul winner. There is no strict approach to evangelize rather our major aim should be to win souls.
Come and see or come and hear approaches - John 4:28-29, Ps 66:16
Friendship approach - 1 Cor 9:19-23, Mark 2:15-17
Care approach - Acts 4:32-37
Electronic / internet approaches – Proverbs 11:30 - following communication trends for soul winning is a sign of divine wisdom.
SPONSORING EVANGELICAL WORKS –EXODUS 25:1-8, COL 3:23
Every Christian should at least have a yearly or quarterly plan of evangelism. Jesus Christ told us about his concern fro this work of soul winning and this should be our focus too - John 9:5. As stewards unto God, we are expected to use our time, money and talent in the work of soul winning – 1 Cor 4:2, 1 Kings 4:8-17. He shunamite sponsored Elisha’s outreach ministry by providing food and accommodation and the Lord blessed her. John 6:4-12, Mark 14:3-9
