“Paul’s great object was not merely to instruct and to improve, but to save. Anything
short of this would have disappointed him; he would have men renewed in heart, forgiven,
sanctified, in fact, saved. His prayers were importunate and his labours incessant.
To save souls was his consuming passion, his ambition, his calling.
Dear reader, have you and I lived to win souls at this noble rate? Are we possessed
with the same all-absorbing desire? If not, why not?
Jesus died for sinners, cannot we live for them? Where is our tenderness? Where our
love to Christ, if we seek not His honour in the salvation of men?
O that the Lord would saturate us through and through with an undying zeal for the
souls of men.“ Charles Spurgeon
"If sinners are to be damned, let them jump over our dead bodies to do so" Spurgeon
EVERY BELIEVERshould be engage in reaching the lost with the saving Gospel of the
Lord Jesus Christ who came into the world TO SAVE SINNERS!
Spurgeon used to say: “have you no wish for others to be saved?
Then you are not saved yourself, BE SURE OF THAT!”
Nothing on earth is more important than preaching the gospel, for it is the only
thing that we can present to the Lord in that day.
Do not be foolish, but be wise and be a soul winner!
Will you stand in that Day “empty handed”, not one soul led to Jesus? Then you shall
be ashamed before Him and the blood of thousands around you will He require from
If you don’t tell them, they will perish and die in their sins and go to Hell, therefore
GO and preach the gospel to every creature that in Him there is redemption from sin,
pardon for the guilty and salvation to the meek!
“If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready
to be slain; If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth
the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall
not he render to every man according to his works? “
TO EVANGELIZE THE PEOPLE IS TO BECOME MOBILE. No one who is not on the go can be
ever effective in evangelism. Evangelism is to be on the move, because people are
on the move. It is to go out where they are in order to bring them where they should
Evangelism was not just one of many activities of the early Church, it was the main
priority. Today, evangelism and missions comes far down on the list of priorities
of many individuals and churches.
In New Testament times, evangelism was a natural, spontaneous sharing of the good
news. All believers engaged it in continuously. The practice was to go where people
were and disciple them. Today, we invite people to church and hope they will come.
In modern times the church invites, while the first church invaded.
Everyone did the work of evangelism (Acts 1:8). Each believer took the Great Commission
as a personal command to evangelize. They did it everywhere, not just in the church
building (Mark 16:20). They did it every day (Acts 5:42), not just periodically during
an evangelistic campaign.
Every church reproduced, every member reproduced, and every home was a center of
Evangelism should occupy a far greater aspect of our daily lives if we would make
a impact on this generation who are on their way to Hell under the Wrath of God.
When necessary, believers even worked to support themselves in order to spread the
Gospel. The Apostle Paul did this. It may seem foolish that a man of Paul's ability,
education, and spiritual gifts should do manual labor to support himself. He had
the right to claim full support from the churches (I Corinthians 9:7-15; I Timothy
5:17-18; Galatians 6:6), but at the same time he was prepared, if necessary, to support
himself in order to spread the Gospel. He did this on several occasions. (I Corinthians
4:12; I Thessalonians 2:9; II Thessalonians 3:8).
In many nations today the custom is that pastors and evangelists are fully paid for
their efforts. This has blocked the spread of the Gospel and the planting of new
churches. Believers also tend to leave the task of evangelism to the full-time ministers
because they are "getting paid for it." There are also many churches without pastors
because they are not able to support a full-time pastor and the possibility of working
has not been considered.
If we are to impact the nations with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we must return to
evangelism as the first priority. We must do it everywhere, every day, and if necessary,
get a job and work in order to get the message out.
What are you doing to reach your generation???
Get involved today, by going, sending or supporting!!!
