The Master Plan of Evangelism, Part 5 (The Soul-Winning Motivator #140)
Our soul-winning passage from the Word of God today is Romans 10:1 which reads: “Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.”
Our soul winning quote today is from David Jeremiah. He said: “Evangelism was not a program in the Jerusalem church; it was a way of life. The believers’ lives and behaviors created such favor with the population of Jerusalem that people were drawn to the Lord.”
Our soul winning devotional is part 5 of our series titled “The Master Plan of Evangelism” from Robert E. Coleman’s book, “The Master Plan of Evangelism.”
Selection – Not Neglecting the Masses
It would be wrong, however, to assume on the basis of what has here been emphasized that Jesus neglected the masses. Such was not the case. Jesus did all that any man could be asked to do and more to reach the multitudes. The first thing He did when he started his ministry was to identify himself boldly with the great mass revival movement of His day by baptism at the hands of John, and He later went out of His way to praise this work of the great prophet. He continuously preached to the crowds that followed his miracle-working ministry. He taught them. He fed them when they were hungry. He healed their sick and cast out demons among them. He blessed their children. Sometimes the whole day would be spent ministering to their needs, even to the extent that he had “no leisure so much as to eat”. In every way possible Jesus manifested to the masses of humanity a genuine concern. These were the people whom He came to save—He loved them, wept over them, and finally died to save them from their sin. No one could think that Jesus shirked mass evangelism.
