Learn to know Christ and him crucified. Learn to sing to him, and say, "Lord Jesus, you are my righteousness, I am your sin. You have taken upon yourself what is mine and given me what is yours. You have become what you were not so that I might become what I was not." --Martin Luther
Well, it's a new week...and i won't rest on what God has done in the past, but i do want to praise Him for it. Here is one of the recent stories to praise God for...A little over a week ago i had the opportunity to share the Gospel using an EvangeCube with our 11 year old neighbor who plays with my daughter. She was thinking hard about it, but didn't make a decision at that time. This past week my wife was able to be in the room with her at AWANA when she prayed to accept Christ. GOD IS GOOD!
Recently the Lord spoke to my heart concerning soul winning. Though I don’t have the gift of being an evangelist, I was aware that all of us are called to be witnesses of Him. It seems that the Lord has to touch many facets regarding this matter: dependence on Him, our responsibility, a heart for the lost and a growing ability to share the gospel. The first step was to let some verses sink deep down into my heart: Prov. 11:30; Dan. 12:3; James 5:19,20; 1 Cor. 9:22 and Rom. 10:1. When the Lord will face me before the judgment seat with the question: “How many souls have you won for Me?”, I want to have been a faithful disciple within the scope of the works he has prepared (Eph. 2:10).
As I have pushed into talking to people about salvation through our Lord Jesus, I have made some observations:
Praying first is a good idea. Sometimes the Holy Ghost starts things before I realize what he is doing. But, if I start with an intention to preach the gospel, asking for God's help first seems to make things better.
Some people criticize zealous brethren out there preaching the gospel. As long as you want to see people saved, your mistakes are just part of maturing. If you ever see someone who you think is doing it wrong and you love him, I think that you will try to help him with helpful suggestions(do not forget to use scripture) and not to discourage him. If someone criticizes you in such a way, examine yourself according to the Bible(KJB). If God does not tell you that you are wrong in the Bible, be at peace and try to handle the situation the way that Jesus would.
As one matures(read the Bible, pray and do something) talking about Jesus will become more natural.
It is my belief that sisters talking to people about the Bible(especially quoting it) ought to cover their heads. I also believe that women and girls should cover their heads for protection.
I Corinthians 11:10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels.
Genesis 6:1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. 3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. 4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. 5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. 8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
