Summary: Some pointers on soul winning.
LET’S GO SOUL WINING
Matthew 28:19-20 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
What we have just read here is what we know as the “GREAT COMMISSION”
1.GO YE: Going is before teaching, preaching, or baptizing. In Psalm 126:6 God gives us a wonderful outline on soul winning
Psalms 126:6 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.
A.Go: weepth (tears, compassion)
B. Spreading the word (seeds)
C. Bringing his sheaves with him (souls)
Here again “GOING” is before sowing or weeping or rejoicing.
God certainly demands that we put feet in soul winning. Walking comes before talking.
Ephesians 6:15 and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
We are commanded to have our feet shod with the gospel. Why? For we are to go & tell the world, not them come to us.
Do you want to have beautiful feet? God says the feet of a soul winner are beautiful.
Isaiah 52:7 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!
Bringeth good tidings to bring something means to go. To go means using your feet.
The problem today is we have to many
BOTTOM LINE SOUL WINNING BEGINS WITH THE FEET.
2.PREACH: This comes after we go. This is when we take the ‘GOOD NEWS OUT TO THEM’ Go & then tell them. Tell them about Jesus. Win them to Jesus.
3. BAPTIZE: After we use our feet to go, we tell them of Jesus (they trust Him as their savior) Then we try to get them baptized.
Please note (do not talk to them about baptizism at the door) Get them to church where Pastor can deal with them on this matter. This is the next step after salvation.
4.TEACH THEM AGAIN: This is where the church comes in. Sunday School, Sunday preaching & Wednesday night Bible & prayer meeting will teach them more on how to grow in Christ. Go to them & spend more one on one time with them in their home or in your home. 1)GO YE 2)TELL THEM (WIN THEM) 3)BAPTIZE THEM 4)DISCIPLE THEM (CHURCH, SUNDAY SCHOOL)
THIS IS THE GREAT COMMISION:
REACHING THE LOST:
It’s the very reason why Jesus came to this earth. It was the purpose of His life, death, resurrection of our Lord. It is now the commission & responsibility of the church. If you are saved you are the church. Go ye don’t look around Go ye is singular.
5.TIPS ON SOUL WINNING:
A.HAVE A DEFINITE TIME TO GO: Must put a time aside to do this or you will not go. If we plan on doing something we are more likely to do it. Our soul winning night is Thurs @ 7:00 pm or Sat @10:00am (this is mainly buses)
1. MUST DO IT ON PURPOSE
2. YOU MUST PLAN TO DO IT
It is not just the job of the Pastor, or the missionaries, youth pastor, children church workers, and bus workers. If you are saved you are to be a soul winner so make time.
B.BE SOUL CONSCIOUS: We must get into our hearts & realize that everyone around us or going to Heaven or Hell. I do not know where they are going, neither do you. Only God does. We need to tell everyone whether it is by mouth, by a tract, or inviting them to come to church. But every one has a soul. Heaven or Hell. We must tell, pass out, and invite. Keep in mind “People do not care how much you know until they know how much you care.”
C.BE CLEAN & NEAT: We are serving a King!!! We should learn to dress like we serve a King. I mean ladies look like ladies (a dress or skirt with a blouse) Men should look like men (nice pants a nice shirt tucked in, a tie (if not to hot) not shirt hanging out, pants down to your rear (Not like the world). We are to be different from the world. Hair combed, hygiene good (have mints) (bad breath will turn them off)
D.CARRY A NEW TESTAMENT (MARKED) WITH YOU: Each soul winner needs to go out & buy you a small New Testament. A big Bible will scare folks away. Have your bibles marked in red for the plan of salvation, blue for assurance verses. Be sure to carry tracts with church name, address & phone number. Also need a pen, a pad to write on for follow up and names of who got saved.
