Seek and pray for opportunities to contact a soul and use them well. Generate a discussion which will lead to conversation and finally to salvation. (Mk 16:15) You must deal with sinners as if you are a fellow sinner. This means you must come down to the sinner’s level. (Romans 3:23) Be courteous and cheerful so as to create a relaxed mood. Do not be overbearing or argumentative. (Acts 8:30-31) Present your facts about salvation in a very simple way using simple language. (Acts 17:23) Choose to speak to a person at a time. Avoid handling more than a fellow at a time to avoid losing grip. (John 4: 7-15) It is easier and more fruitful to deal with your own age group and gender because they will listen better and it ensures free flow of information. (Titus 2: 3-4) Do not expect people to be converted by your oratory, logic or arguments> Men are born again by the word of God and not by the work of men. (1 Peter 1: 23) Do not force people into taking a decision because such a forced decision might not last forever. Be patient and prayerful after every fishing exercise. (Heb. 10: 36) Remember to pray for the person whom you have witnessed. Giving physical support to a newly saved soul helps to accelerate the growth and level of spiritual development. (James 2: 15-16)
