Preparation is key to any successful endeavor. Soul winning is no different. Here are some practical items to consider when preparing to win souls.
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.
Every Christian is commanded to spread the Gospel. What God commands, He empowers. You can be a confident and productive soul winner. These free resouces will help you.
Why is it so difficult to share our faith? We are glad we are saved. We want others to get saved. The Gospel is not difficult to explain, so what is the problem?
While there are many possible answers to this vital question, I do know this much… It is imperative to have a proven framework of how to win a soul in which you have complete confidence.
Hopefully, you were bewildered by the title of this article. Why would this question be asked in the publication of a ministry that helps start churches? Good question. Let me explain.
I have been surprised by the number of Christians (including some Pastors) who aren’t convinced that we need more churches. Here are a few examples.
Sometimes when we promote a town or an area that needs a church, I will see a message that says something like this, “I searched for churches in that town in google maps, and I found a lot of them. Does that area really need ANOTHER church?” Sometimes they will even include a screenshot in case I don’t believe them. Very helpful.
From time to time a pastor will bristle at the idea of another church in a city with more people than they can reach in a lifetime or in a county with more area than they will ever cover. One pastor told a would-be church planter, “This town already has a church. You can go somewhere else.” That pastor left and the church is no longer in existence. The town is still on our list. Hopefully, it will get a good church one day.
Yes, we really do need more churches. Lots more of them in fact. Hundreds more. I believe God can use us to do it. Do you?
The Bible is a powerful Book. It can save the sinner and motivate the soul winner. What verses inspire you to share your faith in Christ? Every Christian should know these powerful verses.
These verses remind us of Christ’s command for us to share the Gospel and the urgency of our commission. Souls hang in the balance. Meditate upon these verses and they will provoke you to surrendered obedience.
Once you get over the initial fear of sharing your faith, you will be forever grateful that you won souls to Christ.
Here are 25 Bible verses about soul winning that will change your life.
Don’t let your heart grow cold.
Matthew 24:12 “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.”
Most people are particular about the temperature of the beverages they drink. If it was meant to be hot, they want it hot. If it was made to be cold, they want it cold. Anyone a fan of a nice hot milkshake? I didn’t think so.
Love was made to be hot. Love is not a state of being but rather a series of actions. Love works. It moves. Like a boiling pot, love is active.
However, love can cool. It can lose its fervor. A boiling pot of love can become an ice cube of apathy in the wrong conditions.
Love and sin are opposites. Love is hot. Sin is cold. Love gives. Sin steals. Love helps. Sin hurts. Love flows from the heart of God. Sin was born in rebellion.
