With how many people have you shared the good news of your salvation? Do you want others to be saved? If receiving Christ as your savior is wonderful, you want other people to have him as their savior as well. Surely, the joy of salvation, you should not keep only to yourself. This post encourages you to reach out and win souls for Christ.
And as you go, preach, saying, “The kingdom of heaven has drawn near.” Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Free you have received, give free – Matthew 10: 7-8 (NKJV).
And he said to them: Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but whoever does not believe will be condemned. Mark 16: 15-16 (NKJV).
Since the time of our Lord Jesus, there has been a network marketing of the gospel of Christ. This is a channel through which one hears and receives the gospel and goes on to share the gospel with others. And as these people receive the gospel, they too will go ahead to share it with others and the network continues to grow. This is how salvation came to our generation and reached you, and it will come to generations after us if Jesus delays. Therefore, it is very important that you evangelize, reach out and win souls so that multitudes are released from condemnation.
Freely you receive, freely you give
Praise God, the salvation of our souls is free. Then we can freely share the good news with others that they too will be saved. Because it is not God’s will that no one perish, but that everyone have eternal life.
Therefore, having been saved, it is important that you join Jesus’ army in reaching and winning souls for Christ. So let the joy of salvation flow from you to many others. Therefore, you have freely received Christ, freely bring many others to him.
Not a burden
Evangelism is not a burden if you value the souls of the lost and have compassion for them as God does. Rather, it will be something of joy that multitudes are released from darkness and have the opportunity to return to God. And that you are considered worthy of being part of the vessels used by God to attract souls to the Lord. Therefore, communicate with others as someone reached out to you.
Two important ways to win the soul
1. Go out to preach the word
This implies that you go out to meet the unsaved one by one to preach the gospel of Christ to them. Furthermore, it guides them through the sinner’s prayer and physically follows them until they are established in Christ and active for Jesus.
2. Pray for workers and salvation of souls
This requires you to spend quality time praying for God to send preachers to the unsaved. That is praying for people to go to many specific places to preach the gospel to the people there. Also, pray that God will open people’s hearts to receive God’s word and be saved. So pray being led by the Holy Spirit.
Now, you have to do both, but in a situation where you can’t do both always, you can choose which one you can do consistently. For example, the disciples prayed and ministered the word constantly, while Hannah indulged in fasting and prayer. And the Lord Jesus said that we should pray for God to send workers into the harvest field.
The Samaritan Woman’s Strategy
The Samaritan woman approached her community in search of Christ. Although he did not know or say much, he nevertheless successfully drew people to Jesus. Therefore, their strategy is worth emulating and is still very effective. So, here is your strategy:
1. Share your testimony
The Samaritan woman only told them that a man told her about all the things she did. And they believed, knowing that there was something special about this man he spoke of. Then you can share your encounter or experience with Christ. In truth, your testimony is an indicator of what can also happen in that person’s life. Because God does not respect people, everyone who believes is a candidate to receive the Lord’s touch.
2. Lead them to a living church
She invited them to come and see this same man for themselves, which they did and then believed more in Christ. Therefore, invite your converts or potential converts to church services, preferably where you are getting your own food. And they’ll hear what you hear that keeps you strong in the Lord, with proofs to show. Then they will believe and surrender to Jesus.
Many Christians are afraid to evangelize, reach out, and win souls for Christ. This is because they are afraid of what people might do to them while they preach or afterwards. Unfortunately, this act shows his lack of faith in God and fear of the devil. However, the scriptures say that you must preach the word of God without fear to men, who can only kill the body. Rather, you must fear the Lord, who will not only kill the body, but destroy it with the soul in hell.
Again, no matter how long you live here on earth, one day you will go. So why be afraid of dying doing God’s will? Furthermore, Christ promised that He will always be with you, even until the end of time, when you teach people to do God’s will. Therefore, let go of fear, because fear has torment.
Evangelism is something that every believing Christian must learn to do. So, having given your life to Christ, you must also go out and bring others into the fold. Because there is justice, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit who fully resides in the family of God. So, reach out and win souls so they can enjoy the blessings of the house as you do.
