Our soul winning verse from the Word of God today is John 10:16 which reads: “And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.”
Our soul winning quote today is from Count Nicolaus Ludwig Zinzendorf. He said: “I have but one passion: It is He, it is He alone. The world is the field and the field is the world; and henceforth that country shall be my home where I can be most used in winning souls for Christ.”
Our soul winning devotional is part 47 of our series titled “What Evangelism Is” from Dave Earley and David Wheeler.
Evangelism Is…Winning Three Battles So Jesus Can Win the War
Win People to Christ
Once you have led your friend to start attending your group, it is usually not difficult to lead him or her into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Sometimes you can use the impetus of the gathering prayerfully to turn the conversation to the spiritual issues. In these situations I have said things such as:
- Do you realize how much God loves you?
- What did God say to you during the meeting tonight?
- When the speaker spoke about eternity, how did you feel?
- If you died on the way home tonight, are you sure that you would be with God in heaven?
- May I show you what the Bible says about starting an eternal relationship with God?
- May I tell you how I gave my life to Jesus Christ?
- May I share with you the biblical road to a relationship with God?
When Thom Rainer’s team invited more than 300 unchurched people, they were surprised to find that few of the unchurched have had someone share with them how to become a Christian. The reason most Christians have not led anyone to Christ is not because non-Christians aren’t interested as much as it is because Christians haven’t stepped out of their comfort zone and told them how to become a Christian. If you truly care about the lost person you have been befriending, you will reach a point in the process when it would be criminal to keep silent.
