By Peter Holt
Help us spread the Truth of the Gospel of Christ:
1. Soul winning is not only for Missionaries and Pastors. If you are saved?
* Then going Soul winning is YOUR responsibility too.
People of the world are dying and going to Hell…
* How can we reach all those Lost Souls?
* You can learn about the many tools you can use in the effort to win souls!
* “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” Romans 1:16
2. Soul Winning for Jesus
* We all should go out and win souls for God
Jesus gave the command at least 5 times in the New Testament.
to go into the world and preach the gospel
* Mt 10:7: And as ye go, PREACH, saying, the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
* Mt 24:14: And this GOSPEL of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
* Mr 16:15: And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
* Lu 9:60: Jesus said unto him, let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.
* 1:8: But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
* The Bible says that he who wins souls is wise
Pr 11:30: The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.
* Soul-Saving our number one most important Business
“I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.”1 Cor. 9:22
3. Instruction in Soul-Winning
* And He saith unto them, Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men. Matt. 4:19
4. We should win Souls for Jesus because
* For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Ro 3:23
We all need Salvation none is good, no, not one
5. Ro 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
* Friend, there is a Great Price for Sin. A price too high for any of us to pay. Only Jesus could pay the price for us. All souls belong to God they are His.
* Eze 18:4 Behold, all SOULS are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.
6. Charles Spurgeon Said: “Have you no wish for others to be saved?
Then you are not saved yourself, be sure of that.”
* There is a great judgment coming soon
* If God spared not the angels that sinned and destroyed the world except for Noah and his Family and turned Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes He will surely judge the sin of this world as well. God will not let the SIN of this world go unpunished.
* 2 peter 2:4: For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
* 2 peter 2:5: And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
* 2 peter 2:6: And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
7. The Price for sin is hell. Eternal Separation from God without your friends or Family just non stop Wicked, Evil torture forever.
* Ps 9:17: The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
8. If you have a Family member or Friend. Tell them about Jesus it may be their last chance to get the issue of their Salvation settled with God
* 2th. 1:7: And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,
* 2th. 1:8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
* 2th. 1:9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;
9. Friend the Scriptures paint a perfect picture of what God plans to do to those who know not Jesus – punishment with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord. That is a scary thing to hear, if you don’t know him – or let me put it this way: It’s scary if He doesn’t know you
10. Friend if you are not saved, then obey the Gospel of Christ as provided in Acts 2:38. Then go tell others! If you need to GET SAVED, do it now! Time is running out friend, the time is at hand.
11. We the church should win souls Isaiah 59:2 but your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, so that he will not hear.
Methods to witness and to get Home Bible Studies

* Gospel tracts can be used by anyone to help spread the Gospel of Jesus. If you have a desire to win the lost, but don’t know where to start, or if you are shy. we strongly suggest that you use Gospel tracts. If you have a hard time talking to others??? it is easy now you can hand the people a tract and walk away. Leave them at restaurants, in bathrooms or just hand them out on the street. It makes witnessing for Jesus sweet and easy. here are some Good Places to get some Gospel tracts for Soul Winning

3. Bus Ministries
* Do you like kids? Get involved with your churches Bus ministry you can go out and recruit children and them get the church bus to pick them up and bring them to church. it is a very effective way to share the Gospel.
