Discerning The Lost
Discerning For I have come down from heaven to do the will of God who sent me, not to do my own will. And this is the will of God, that I should not lose even one of all those he has given me, but that I should raise them up at the last day. For it is my Fathers will that all who see his Son and believe in him should have eternal life. John 6:38-40
Discerning My food, Jesus said, is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work. John 6:38-40
Discerning This is good and pleases God our Savior, who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth. For there is only one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanitythe man Christ Jesus. He gave his life to purchase freedom for everyone. This is the message God gave to the world at just the right time. 1 Timothy 2:3-7
Discerning 1. God did not send us to convert lost people.
Discerning I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes. Romans 1:16
Discerning I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life. John 5:24
Discerning 2. Its the Holy Spirit that draws people to God.
Discerning But in fact, it is best for you that I go away, because if I dont, the Advocate wont come. If I do go away, then I will send him to you. And when he comes, he will convict the world of its sin, and of Gods righteousness, and of the coming judgment. John 16:7-8
Discerning No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day. It is written in the Prophets: 'They will all be taught by God.' Everyone who listens to the Father and learns from him comes to me. John 6:44-45
Discerning 2. Just tell your story! - Testimony
Discerning And they have defeated him (the devil) by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony. Revelation 12:11
Discerning Prepare a 3-minute testimony.
Discerning - Before - How - Since
Discerning That if you confess with you mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
Discerning For Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?
Discerning And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? That is why the Scriptures say, How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring good news! Romans 10:13-15
Discerning For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost. Luke 19:10
Discerning Jesus said, Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you." John 20:21
