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 Mark 16:15 which reads: “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.”
Allow me to share with you some insights regarding this Scripture from the Expository Notes of Dr. Thomas Constable:
The giving of the Great Commission on this occasion seems to have preceded the giving of it that Matthew recorded. The account in the second Gospel stresses the universal scope of the disciples” responsibility. “All” in “all the world” is an especially strong form of the Greek word for “all,” namely, hapanta. Every part of the world needs the Gospel.
Our soul winning quote today is from John R. Mott. He said: “The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.”
Our soul winning devotional is part 10 of our series titled “The Master Plan of Evangelism” from Robert E. Coleman. And, I want to remind you to take advantage of our special offer. If you enjoy this podcast, please feel free to purchase a copy of this book – “The Master Plan of Evangelism.” It is available on our website for just $35.
Some might object to this principle when practiced by the Christian worker on the ground that favoritism is shown toward a select group in the church. But be that as it may, it is still the way that Jesus concentrated His life, and it is necessary if any lasting leadership is to be trained. Where it is practiced out of a genuine love for the whole church, and due concern is manifested toward the needs of the people, objections can at least be reconciled to the mission being accomplished. However, the ultimate goal must be clear to the worker, and there can be no hint of selfish partiality displayed in relationships to all. Everything that is done with the few is for the Salvation of the multitudes.
This principle of selectivity and concentration is engraved in the universe, and will bring results no matter who practices it, whether or not the church believes it. Look at any successful leadership training program in business, industry, government, or the military. On a global scale, it is surely not without significance that the early leaders of communism, always alert to what works, adopted in a large measure this method of the Lord as their own. Using it to their own devious end they have multiplied from a handful of zealots to a vast conspiracy of followers that until recently enslaved nearly half the people of the world. They are a modern-day example of what Jesus demonstrated so clearly in His day: that the multitudes can be won easily if they are just given leaders to follow.
In our next episode, we will look at Time for Action.
