THE MESSAGE OF THE CHURCH SHOULD BE COME AND SEE!E
I. The Supreme task of Church is the Evangelism of the world.
A. Mass evangelism is not the answer as wonderful as it is.
1. God wants to use the whole church to evangelize the world.
B. Come and say come!
Rev 22:17 . And the Spirit and the bride say, Come And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
1. Jesus invites all to Himself! Mat 11:28 . Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
C. Sinners can come to Jesus.
.John 6:37 . All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
.John 1:12 . But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
D. Never too old or too young. He makes us a new creation.
.Luke 18:16 . But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
E: Spirit of God draws people.
.John 6:65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.
II. I do not know how to preach or win a soul!
HOW CAN I BE SAVED?
These are the steps to lead a soul to Christ.
1. Get them to see and then ACKNOWLEDGE THEIR LOST CONDITION.
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.
Isaiah 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
2. They must then BELIEVE THE GOSPEL
Acts 16:30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?
Acts 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
3. Then they must REPENT OF THEIR SINS
Luke 13:3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
Isaiah 55:7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD,and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.
4. Then RECEIVE CHRIST AS THEIR PERSONAL SAVIOUR
John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name:
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Rev 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
1 John 5:12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
1 John 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
