Summary: The real reason we don’t see more soul winners is a lack of concern for broken people.

  Study Tools

The world is still mostly unreached & unsaved after more than 2000 years of Christianity.

1.) World population in nearing five billion, most have never heard the gospel. [Amazing – USA]

[Six billion 2001]

2.) Another amazing fact: Most believers will never win a soul! (approx. 95% Evangelism Explosion)

3.) In spite of the Great Commission. (Mt. 28)

4.) Why? (Reasons)

(1) Training? [Talk about this next week]

(2) Fear?

• Are you afraid to tell others about Christ???– of what their looks, thoughts and words?????

• What about at the time of the judgment???? [POEM: “My Friend”]

Three main reasons concerning why there are not more soul-winners.

1- There Is A Lack Of Conviction That People Are Really Lost.

1- Half (46%) of all Americans do not believe in a literal Hell.

2- This “rich man” was convinced! [Too late – 5 minutes in hell = evangelist!!!]

3- Bible= about lost condition. (Jn. 3:18, 36, 5:28-29, Dan. 12:2, 2 Thess. 1:7-9, Rev. 20:15)

4- Without this conviction people will be lost forever!!!

5- Believer’s are God’s hands to a lost world. (Rom. 10:11-17)

6- Soul winning is literally snatching men and women out of the fire! (Jam. 5:20; Jude 22-23a)

2- There Is A Lack Of Concern For the Lost.

1- “Concern” is almost a lost word.

2- “They made their bed” mentality. (So did we!!!)

3- Most of us have felt like David at some time. (Ps. 142:4 b)

4- God’s people must be care!

(1) Jeremiah was concerned over his generation! (Jer. 9:1)

(2) Paul was concerned over the people of his day! (Rom. 9:1-3)

(3) Jesus demonstrated His concern constantly. (Mt. 9:36)

5- We need a fresh anointing of concern. (Ps. 126:6)

6- God is looking for someone to stand in the gap. (Ezek. 22:30)

3- There Is A Lack Of True Consecration Among Believers.

1- The chief obstacle of Christianity is not the cults. [names]

2- It is the Godless lifestyle professing Christians live!!! (2 Cor. 6:16-7:1)

3- Consecration (Dedicated obedient living) makes us available to God! (Rom.12:1-2)

Believers must have…

A conviction that people are really lost without God.

A concern that would constrain us to do more. (Sympathy vs. Compassion)

A difference in the manner of life we live.

This would overcome the “Fear & Training”!

Are You Waiting For Someone Else To Do It For Us.

1- “Someone else can do it better than me”????

2- Some are deluded into the belief that Sunday Morning is the best evangelist approach.

3- God promises His help – that is all we need!!!

1-

Jn 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Jn 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.

Jn 5:28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, 29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
