The Master Plan of Evangelism, Part 6 (The Soul-Winning Motivator #141)
The purpose of this podcast is to challenge you, encourage you, exhort you, and motivate you to witness for the Lord Jesus Christ right where you are to those who are not believers in Christ. Even though we will share some instructions on how to witness for the Lord from time to time, we believe that most Christians do not need to learn how to witness for the Lord, they just need to go and do it; so our aim is more motivational than instructional.
Our soul-winning Passage from the Word of God today is Acts 13:47 which reads: “For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.”
Our soul winning quote today is from Jerram Barrs. He said: “Our attitudes of heart are always being judged by non-Christians. Unbelievers are drawing conclusions about Christ and about the truth of Christianity from everything we say and do.”
Our soul winning devotional is part 6 of our series titled “The Master Plan of Evangelism” from Robert E. Coleman’s book, “The Master Plan of Evangelism.”
Selection – Multitudes Aroused
The ability of Jesus to impress the multitudes created a serious problem in His ministry. He was so successful in expressing to them His compassion and power that they once wanted “to take him by force, to make him king.” One report by the followers of John the Baptist said that “all men” were clamoring for His attention. Even the Pharisees admitted among themselves that the world had gone after Him, and bitter as the admission must have been, the chief priests agreed with this opinion. However one looks at it, the Gospel record certainly does not indicate that Jesus lacked any popular following among the masses, despite their hesitating loyalty, and this condition lasted to the end. Indeed, it was the fear of this friendly mass feeling for Jesus that prompted His accusers to capture him in the absence of the people.
