FOUR CALLS FOR PERSONAL SOUL WINNING
What we need is more soul winning churches that know how to go out into the community to win people to Christ, to disciple new converts, and bring them into the Potters House. We find that there are 4 calls for personal soul-winning in the Bible:
1. From Within.
"For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard."
"For the love of Christ constraineth us." II Corinthians 5:14.
The Holy Spirit which indwells us leads us to speak to people about Christ.
"Then the Spirit said unto Philip, go near, and join thyself to this chariot." Acts 8:29.
To disobey this call is to grieve the indwelling Holy Spirit.
2. From Without.
`There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us. 'Acts 16:9
"Lift up your eyes and look on the fields for they are white already to harvest." John 4:34-36.
There are people needing to hear the gospel. There are many people wanting someone to start a church near them. Will you volunteer to
go and tell them? Can you see the opportunities to preach the gospel and to lead multitudes to Christ all over the world?
3. From Above.
"There is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth." Luke 15:10. "Wherefore, seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight…" Hebrews 12:1.
4. From Below.
Many people suffering in hell pray for someone to tell their family how to be saved.
"I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house; for I have five brethren; that he may testify unto
them, lest they also come into this place of torment." Luke 16:27,28.
Conclusion: Will you heed these 4 calls to win the lost and go
