But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.
Jesus loves the little children. He wants them to come to Him.
Our Lord rebuked the disciples and taught them to allow the children access to Himself. In fact, He used a child as an example of salvation.
Children show us the way of salvation. They exhibit two qualities necessary for salvation.
If you don’t come to Christ with child-like faith, you cannot be saved.
Every church should have an outreach plan to reach children for Christ.

How was I going to remember all the verses of the Gospel plan while learning meet people, answer questions, overcome interruptions, and confront objections?
Thankfully, my mentor taught us this simple tip that made soul winning so much easier for a beginner!
Confidence in soul winning comes from prayer, memorization of the Truth, practice of the techniques, and preparation of your tools. Drawing a map in your New Testament helps you work through fearful jitters and unforeseen interruptions.
The concept is simple but effective. Draw a map through your New Testament by highlighting or underlining a verse then write the next verse you will go to next in the margin.
We recommend highlighting the verses with a yellow or orange gel (dry) highlighter. A gel highlighter won’t bleed through thin Bible pages. Click here to see the gel highlighter I use.
I use the Romans Road Gospel plan with the addition of 1 John 5:13 to start. Usually, I finish with Titus 1:12, John 1:12-13, and John 3:36 for assurance after they trust Christ. I use Matthew 10:32 when asking them for a commitment to be my guest at church.

Luke 10:1–2, 17 “After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come. Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest. Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.
And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.”
In Luke 10:1-16, our Lord gathered his disciples to give them instructions as they went out from city to city in His name. He prepared them for what they would encounter in ministry and gave them instructions on how to respond to various situations.
