MESSAGE TOPIC: DEDICATION TO GOD IN SOUL-WINNING
BY: DR. PAUL ENENCHE
- Understanding the purpose or reason for soul-winning
- Understanding the profits or benefits of soul-winning
- Understanding the practice of soul-winning
Soul-winning is a very crucial aspect of dedicated Christianity
Soul-winning was the bedrock of apostolic Christianity (1Cor. 9:6; 2Tim. 4:2-5)
WHY SOUL-WINNING IS NECESSARY:
- The salvation of souls is the priority of God (Ezek. 3:11-12; 2Pet. 3:9)
It is God’s preeminent priority
Soul-winning is the heartbeat of God; it is such that He sent His only Begotten Son (John 3:16)
It is such a heartbeat of God that He sent the Holy Spirit for soul-winning (Acts 1:8)
- The salvation of souls is a trigger for joy in Heaven (Luke 15:10; Gal. 6:7)
You cannot sow joy in Heaven and not reap joy on earth (Gal. 6:7)
- The salvation of souls is the rewarding of the travails of our Master (Isa. 53:11)
We bring satisfaction to the labour of the Master
If we refuse for Jesus’ suffering on the Cross to be in vain, no devil can make our work to be in vain
- The salvation of souls is the rescue of multitudes from the torment of hellfire (Ps. 9:17; Matt. 25:41)
Heaven is real and hell is real; hell was prepared for the devil and his angels, not for man
- The salvation of multitudes brings honour to the Almighty (Prov. 14:28)
God is honoured when multitudes gather (Prov. 14:28)
PROFITS OF SOUL-WINNING:
- Access to Divine Presence (Mark 16:20;Ps. 114:1-End)
- Access to supernatural power in signs and wonders (Acts 1:8; Mark 16:20)
- Access to supernatural supplies (Luke 5:4-5; 22:35)
When you work for God, He pays you wages; the work of God attracts the wages of God
If you do His Will, He pays your bills (Matt. 17:24-27)
- Access to Divine wisdom (Prov. 11:30; Dan. 12:3)
There is a wisdom you connect to guide the affairs of your life and destiny when you win souls
- Access to Divine health and vitality (John 15:2; Phile. 1:9)
- Access to joy and fulfilment (Luke 10:17; 1Thess. 2:19)
You don’t know what it means to be excited
THE PRACTICE OF SOUL-WINNING:
- Friends and family outreach (John 1:40-42; Acts 11:13; 16:31)
This is reaching out to friends and family members first
There may be people you may be ignoring right now that are meant to pillars in the Church
God saves a member of a family in order to save the family
Your salvation is tied to other people’s salvation
- Testimonies and evidence outreach (Ps. 105:1-2; Mark 1:45; John 4:28-30)
- Welfare or good works outreach (Matt. 5:14-16; Acts 9:36-42; John 8:10-11)
This is where you are using the love of God to touch the lost
- Church invitation (Luke 14:23)
This is the act of compelling people to come to the House of the Lord and trusting that God will touch them when they come
- Power or miracles evangelism (Acts 1:8; Mark 16:20)
This is the deployment of the power of God for the tackling of the challenges of the people
- Character evangelism (Acts 11:26; 1Pet. 3:1-4)
This is the process of exhibiting exemplary character or lifestyle before the ungodly trusting God to use that to change their lives
If your spouse refuses to hear your preaching, let them hear your character!
Your focus should not be on external decoration but on internal fortification (1Pet. 3:1-4)
PREPARATION FOR SOUL-WINNING:
- Possess the fullness of the Spirit (Acts 1:8)
- The attitude of prayerfulness (Matt. 12:29)
Every spiritual tree is not permitted to be fruitless any month (John 15:16; Isa. 61:3; Rev. 22:2)
Father, I come before You today and I receive the grace for fruit bearing; Father deposit upon my heart and my life the passion for soul-winning. I receive that deposit now, in Jesus’ Name!
