1. How many people have I helped lead to Christ? 

2.How many people do I NOW have may heart set on to win to Christ? 

3. To what extent have I gone to try to win these people ? 

4. Approximately how many hours (or minutes) per week do I average talking to people about the Lord? 

5. How often do I pray for certain people to obey the Lord, or to be restored to faithful Christian duty? 

6. Do I ever pray FERVENTLY that I might become a better soul winner? 

7. Am I generally embarrassed to converse with people about Christ? 

8. Do I know enough Scripture to help one become a Christian? 

9.Do I honestly feel that I am my brother's keeper, and that his salvation may depend LARGELY upon me? 

10. Have I offered the excuse, "I DON"T KNOW HOW," for not doing personal work? 

11. Do I think I can ever really learn how until I try? 

12. When do I plan to begin? 

Remember: 

  1. God knows what I really CAN or CAN'T do! 

  2. I can't deceive God!

  3. I will be held responsible for not making some attempt! 

Dear Personal Evangelism 101 Student: 

         AFTER PONDERING YOUR ANSWERS TO THE ABOVE, THINK ABOUT THE OBSERVATIONS THAT FOLLOW. Next week we will do a lesson entitled "THE GREATEST NEED" Who would not agree that one of the greatest needs we have today in the church is to win souls? If you do not feel that you are a part of the solution, will you begin in praying with me, every morning or night before going to bed, "Lord, revive the church, beginning with me?  I want you to listen to these statistics. 

                                 A SURVEY FOR US TO THINK ABOUT (some years ago)

         THE SURVEY INDICATED THAT THE AVERAGE CONGREGATION baptizes only 5% of its membership annually...if children of members are deducted, the figures drop to 2%... Elders, deacons, teachers in 184 congregations averaged only 10 visits to an outsider per week, per congregation. Less than one-third of the congregation (288) had any kind of systematic program of visitation....The same number of congregations had no working program for working with new converts. ....Less than 10% had an active prospect file...The number of personal classes that members had with non-Christians averaged less than 1% of the membership...Members gave less than 4% of their estimated income to the church and all works related to Christianity...And here is the SHOCKING FACT, less than 5% of us won a soul to Christ last year (Read Proverbs 11:30). Are we? EVERY MINUTE 156 with COVID 19 those numbers have shot up to 170! How many of these people are dying without HOPE in JESUS CHRIST? 

It would appear obvious from these STARTLING STATISTICS that we need all of the "stirring up" we can get. We have reached a sorry hour when people do a better job of promoting false doctrine than we do at promoting the cause of Christ. 

WHAT IS TRUE SUCCESS? 

Please remember, success is not always determined by the response of the people to the message, For example, Noah, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and often even Jesus, taught truth and yet found few receptive hearts. However, even Isaiah said in Isaiah 55:11 that his word as it goes forth from his mouth "Shall not" return to me void but that "it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it." I am convinced that if you sow enough seed, in enough hearts, that God will produce an increase (I Corinthians 3:6) I Aren't you? 

 

 Who would not agree that one of the greatest needs we have today in the church is to win souls? If you do not feel that you are a part of the solution, will you begin in praying with me, every morning or night before going to bed, "Lord, revive the church, beginning with me?  I want you to think about these statistics. 

Can you during this "PANDEMIC" that has killed over 400,000 Americans:

(1) Pray each day for souls to be saved?

(2) Can you commit to being on the ZOOM Bible Classes and invite others? 

(3) Can you share this link www.makebibledisciples.com with at least 10 people in an email and on your social media pages this week? 

Never forget that ....
