Mark 16:15-16, Matthew 28:18-20.
This is a very practical lesson on what is needed the most in our churches. I realize we cannot exist without His presence and power. But, right next to the top is this matter of personal soul winning. I believe many have reached a comfort zone of occasionally winning a soul to Christ, or helping at the altar during the invitation. This is good, but it will never take the place of going out where they are to win them and then to bring them in. Let us not get comfortable and wait for the Lord to send them. But let’s obey His command and perhaps then He will send us the people we so badly need to help us. I believe soul winning is the answer to every problem we have, from the finances to growth in the church.
There are four basic commands in the great commission.
GO – ENERGIZE. (You cannot find fish in your backyard).
PREACH – EVANGELIZE. (House to house).
BAPTISE – ESTABLISH.
TEACH – EDUCATE (change lives).
