10:30 AM Bus Visitation, Soul Winning & Outreach
Are We Reaching Out to Others With the Gospel?
It’s easy to go through the motions without fulfilling the heart of the Great Commission—
leading peopleto salvation through Jesus Christ. It is encouraging to remember thatGod has specifically commissioned us with His gospel. We are Hisambassadors
And when we consider that we’ve been
commissioned to deliver a message with this urgency and importance,it adds weight to our responsibility.
Over the years, I’ve noticed that some people seem to have a gift for
shopping. Not only do they love to do it, but when they go out, they bring something home
every time! Their success in shopping is simple:they go out looking
specifically, attentively.If we would go out soul winning with the same tenacity of focus
specifically, attentively looking to reach the lost
perhaps we would bemore successful in our efforts. Ultimately, it is the Holy Spirit who is the true Soul Winner. Only He canconvict people of their need for Christ and convince them to place their faith in Him
Holy Spirit uses the Word of God to bring conviction. It is our responsibility to share God’s Word with those who do not know Christ. The Holy Spirit will use His Word to point out the person’s sin, and the
righteousness available through Christ.
Are we going out as a matter of duty, or are we going because we’ve been commissioned by God? Are
we seeking to show others the compassion of Christ? Are we taking the conversation beyond a simple
invitation to church, sharing God’s Word, and allowing the Holy Spirit to bring conviction?
