What motivates people to go soulwinning at home and give to missions around the world? Here are 4 Undeniable Reasons to Spread the Gospel.
God commanded us to preach the Gospel to every creature. We must obey. God is the Master. We are the servants. God set the mission, told us how to accomplish it, and provided what we need to comply.
Will you obey? If God calls you to go to the mission field, you must go. God commanded you to give for others to go so you must give. God commands you to tell people about Jesus in your world so you must go soulwinning. The only alternative to the Great Commission is disobedience to God.
Luke 6:46 “And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?”
Don’t call Jesus Lord if you won’t obey Him.
John 14:15 “If ye love me, keep my commandments.”
Don’t tell God you love Him if you will not obey Him.
God has given you the freedom choose Him or reject Him. You accepted Him as your Savior. Now you must accept Him as your Lord by doing what He says. You accepted His love for you. Now you must give your love to Him by obedience.
Romans 4:20 “He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;”
True faith moves you to action. Believe God and obey His Word!
God calls men to do His work. When God calls a man to the ministry, He separates him from his peers calling him to a special task. Learn more about this holy calling.
Acts 13:1–4 “Now there were in the church that was at Antioch certain prophets and teachers; as Barnabas, and Simeon that was called Niger, and Lucius of Cyrene, and Manaen, which had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul. As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them. And when they had fasted and prayed, and laid their hands on them, they sent them away. So they, being sent forth by the Holy Ghost, departed unto Seleucia; and from thence they sailed to Cyprus.”
Each child of God is called to good works and service of the Saviour. Eph 2:10 The Christian life should be filled with loving service to our Lord. Yet, God calls certain men to positions of leadership and particular works. He chose Abraham as the Father of the Jews, Moses to lead His people out of Egypt, and Samuel as a prophet and Judge. What a privilege that God still calls men to fulfill His purposes!
When God calls a man to ministry, He separates him from his peers calling him to a specific work. In Acts 13:2, the Holy Ghost called Barnabas and Saul for missionary ministry. They were to leave family and friends traveling to distant lands to spread the Gospel.

Order vs. Chaos. The battle between these two wages every day all around you. Things left to themselves fall into chaos. Order is obtained by design and effort. Here are seven amazing tips that will help you set your life in order.
God brought order out of chaos during the creation of our planet. Genesis 1:1-2 God loves order. A quick glance at nature shows an orderly pattern. This order becomes more apparent the deeper you study creation. From the endless expanse of space to the smallest atom, God’s bias for order is clearly seen. He desires to help us create order out of our chaotic lives.
1 Corinthians 14:40 Let all things be done decently and in order.
One of the responsibilities of a pastor is to set the church in order and to keep it organized according to God’s teaching in the Bible.
Titus 1:5 For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee:
Likewise, it is your responsibility to set in order your personal life and your areas of authority.
The world moves quickly around us. It demands our time and attention with no consideration for God’s commands or our highest priorities.
Either you will live life or life will live you. You must be the designer of your life. You must decide what is truly important and build your life in an orderly way to facilitate the accomplishment of those goals and the fulfillment of those relationships.
