GREAT WEEK OF WINNING SOULS

This was a great week for winning souls.  God gave 12 souls and several for the water this Lord's Day.  I am thrilled at the opportunity and the command to win souls.  I always look at it as more than a command, but rather as an opportunity.   Unfortunately there are several misconceptions and misunderstandings about personal soul winning.


MISTAKEN THOUGHTS ABOUT SOUL WINNING

  • It's a mistake to say that we soul win only when the Holy Spirit leads.
  • It's a mistake to say that the Bible is enough. (Acts 8:31-"except some man should guide me."
  • It's a mistake to say if we live right, people will come to us for salvation.
  • It's a mistake to say that soul winning is just for the preacher.
  • It's a mistake to say just be Christlike.
  • It's a mistake to say we should not persuade the unsaved to be saved. (II Corinthians 5:11; Luke 14:16-24)
  • It's a mistake to say that personal soul winning is "easy-believism."(Acts 8:36, 37, 38; Acts 4:4, 32; Acts 18:13; Acts 10:45; Acts 11:21; Acts 16:30, 31; Acts 18:8; John 3:16; John 3:36)
  • It's a mistake to say we can speak to the wrong person. (Mk 16:15)
  • It's a mistake to say men have the power to send people to Hell.
  • It's a mistake to think that your mission giving replaces the personal command to go soul winning.
  • It's a mistake to think that because soul winning is a commission to the local church that it replaces the personal command to go soul winning.

JUST A THOUGHT!
