Now listen to me, If He does not work in me, He cannot work through me.
IV. I BELIEVE I WOULD SOUL-WIN MORE.
People are perishing by the millions. Do we even care? In 1999 there was a big earthquake in Turkey: 17,000 killed and 500,000 are homeless (later updated amount).
Yes, we can always look back and say how we should not have done this or that and should have done something different. We learn a lot of things in life. One of the things we must learn is from our mistakes, as well as what we did right.
V. I THINK I WOULD WORK HARDER AT DISCIPLING MORE CONVERTS.
Mathew 28 gives us a threefold commission. Win them, bring them, and teach them. We need a proper balance today.
Some churches (Christians) work hard at winning souls, but never disciple them. Others work hard at teaching but never win souls. Our converts need salvation, but also to be taught obedience to Christ, such as baptism, church membership, etc. We need to instill in them a deep conviction of right and wrong. But wait a minute before we can teach others we must live a separated life ourselves.
Did you ever stop to think what would happen if God made you as sick on Sunday morning as you say you are? If you were as broke and poor as you are during the offering?
I believe everybody ought to join the church, give, serve and not sit back. Because your Pastor needs to know that he can count on you when difficult times come. And they always do come.
Away with unfaithfulness, away with sipping cocktails, smoking cigarettes, living in immorality, evil thoughts, improper dress, etc. No you cannot live your life over again, but why not live it right the first time around.
A. BE A BETTER CHRISTIAN, HUSBAND & FATHER.
B. GET SAVED
C. START SERVING HIM FAITHFULLY
D. WIN SOULS TO CHRIST
F. DISCIPLE THE ONES YOU WIN & FELLOWSHP WITH HIM.
THE CHALLENGE IS FOR ALL OF US!
