I’d just keep doing what he’s doing. Paul Harvey, ABC Radio broadcast, April 3, 1965
People have so much Feel they’re saved in sin We’re all getting to heaven by different roads Attacks on God Corruption & Immorality abound But…
Every man needs salvation ◦ Rom 3:23 ◦ 1Jn 1:8-10 Jesus is personally interested in EVERY soul ◦ Common people Mk 12:35-37 ◦ Sinners, beggars, outcasts & tax collectors Mt 9:9- 12, Lk 15:1, Mt 11:4-5 ◦ Rich, powerful, intellectual, Jn 3, Luke 18, Mt 27
Jesus’ love & willingness to be the answer to man’s lost state ◦ In Life & Death 2Cor 8:9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich. Heb 2:9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone.
Jesus is the ONLY answer ◦ Jn 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. ◦ Not another individual ◦ Not another version of the gospel
How to reach the lost ◦ Mt 4:18-20, learn from their examples We must prepare ourselves first ◦ 1Cor 9:27 But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.
Cannot teach unless we know the material ◦ Verses for Plan of Salvation? ◦ Refute commonly held error ◦ Give a reason for your belief? Heb 5:12 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food.
It is a Necessity ◦ Mk 16:15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. ◦ Publicly, privately and by example
Understand and See the Need ◦ Jn 4:35 Fields are white for harvest ◦ NOW! ◦ Have Jesus’ compassion, Mt 9:35-36 ◦ Pray, :37-38 ◦ GO Mt 28:19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
Sense of URGENCY ◦ Like strawberry harvest at its peak ◦ Time cannot be redeemed once lost
How? ◦ Attitude, hope 1Pt 3:15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; Would someone want what you have? Glass Half Full Can’t never could Paul in Athens Act 17:16-23 Noah
Think of Others ◦ Kindness ◦ If the tables were turned Drop Hints ◦ Season your speech with subjects of God ◦ We don’t hesitate to share deals, specials Ask questions, offer answers Offer to study or to set one up
Invite to services ◦ Explain order Be there, be helpful ◦ Get out of your comfort zone Never hide the truth, don’t back down
Are you working the ground you’ve got? Opportunities often disappear whether we’re ready for them to or not Commit now, don’t let another pass you by If you’re not a Christian, don’t let the Devil win ◦ Hear, Believe, Repent, Confess & Be Baptized
