How To Win A Soul 1

The first thing we need to know is that you and I cannot win a soul. Only God can do that. What we can do is make ourselves available to Him to be used in the process. Our part in the process is giving them the Word of God, the Bible.

Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

1 Corinthians 1:21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

2 Corinthians 5:20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.

Do not wait until you are perfect to share the gospel. You won’t be perfect until the Lord comes or until He takes you to Heaven and then it will be too late to win souls. Jesus was perfect and still many rejected the gospel He gave them. If you believe that the one who shared the gospel with you was perfect, you are wrong. God will make you more fruitful if you ask Him to forgive your sins and guide you and use you. Often He will make you fruitful even if you have forgotten to ask.

Memorize the scriptures that you want to use. If you can’t memorize them, type them out and carry them with you. Put them in the form of a list. Put them in the form of an outline. Use them for a bookmark in your Bible. Include only the references or include the entire passages. Whatever works for you. When the Lord gives you more scriptures that might help you share the gospel, add them. Sharing the gospel with one individual will never be exactly like it will be for other individuals. The Holy Spirit will lead you. Trust the Holy Spirit to give you the right passages and the right words.

No one gets saved without the Holy Spirit doing His work. If you are saved, when you heard the gospel some human was speaking to your ears and to your mind. Someone else was speaking to your heart. That was the Bible and the Holy Spirit. He has to do a lot of things that you don’t even think about as you share the gospel. He has to deal with you AND the one you are sharing the gospel with.

Practice sharing the gospel. Learn from experience. Learn from your mistakes. You will not remember everything that you want to remember as you share the gospel. You will not remember everything that I share with you about sharing the gospel. I myself do not ever remember it all. The Holy Spirit will help you remember what you need. Even if you botch it up, you will have planted or watered. Making mistakes is not failure. Our only failure is not trying to share the gospel.
