BE A MISSIONARY
“Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing the in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the HolyGhost; Teaching them to observe all things whatsover I have commanded you: and lo I am with you always, even to the end of the world Amen.”Matthew 28 :19-20
Passion For Soul
“To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.”1 Corinthians 9: 22
Passion is the propelling force that drives a soul winner to success. The inner strength and character of a single-minded soldiers of the cross. Passion places priority on the salvation of souls more than any suffering, persecution a soul winner might go through to fulfill his course. Passion for the salvation of humanity compelled Christ to Calvary despite denial, betrayer, and cruel bitten. It’s a virtue that must be prayed for and possessed to succeed as a missionary.
Rescue The Perishing
Rescue the perishing,
Care for the dying,
Snatch them in pity from sin and the grave;
Weep o’er the erring one,
Lift up the fallen,
Tell them of Jesus the mighty to save.
Rescue the perishing,
Care for the dying;
Jesus is merciful,
Jesus will save.
|Though they are slighting Him,|
Still He is waiting,
Waiting the penitent child to receive;
Plead with them earnestly,
Plead with them gently;
He will forgive if they only believe.
|Down in the human heart,|
Crushed by the tempter,
Feelings lie buried that grace can restore;
Touched by a loving heart,
Wakened by kindness,
Chords that are broken will vibrate once more.
|Rescue the perishing,|
Duty demands it;
Strength for thy labor the Lord will provide;
Back to the narrow way,
Patiently win them;
Tell the poor wand’rer a Savior has died.
Purity of A Soul-winner
“Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, the Lord knoweth them that are his, and let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.”2 Timothy 2:19
If there is any christian virtue that is non negotiable for a rewardable and commendable missionary work, purity for me is number one. It confuses Satan and paralyses the enemies. it’s the strongest weapon any soul-winner can possess. Without purity, a soul-winner is like a sounding brass or tinkling cymbals. This purity can’t be gotten through self effort. Religious activities cannot equate purity. It’s a divine work of grace possess through the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross for those who put their trust in Him.
Oh, To Be Like Thee
O to be like Thee! blessed Redeemer;
This is my constant longing and prayer;
Gladly I’ll forfeit all of earth’s treasures,
Jesus, Thy perfect likeness to wear.
O to be like Thee! O to be like Thee!
Blessed Redeemer, pure as Thou art;
Come in Thy sweetness, come in Thy fullness;
Stamp Thine own image deep on my heart.
|O to be like Thee! full of compassion,|
Loving, forgiving, tender and kind,
Helping the helpless, cheering the fainting,
Seeking the wand’ring sinners to find.
|O to be like Thee! lowly in spirit,|
Holy and harmless, patient and brave;
Meekly enduring cruel reproaches,
Willing to suffer, others to save.
|O to be like Thee! Lord, I am coming,|
Now to receive th’ anointing divine;
All that I am and have I am bringing;
Lord, from this moment all shall be Thine.
|O to be like Thee! While I am pleading|
Pour out Thy Spirit, fill with Thy love.
Make me a temple meet for Thy dwelling,
Fit for a life which Thou wouldst approve.
Power of the Spirit
“But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem and in all Judaea and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”Acts 1: 8
Soul winning is a spiritual task therefore, Evangelism must be spirit led, and a soul winner must be spirit filled. The power of the Holy Spirit is not human courage or boldness of face. It’s beyond speaking in tongues. It is the witnessing power of the Spirit; the wisdom to win in every situation; and the manifestation of the supernatural power of God to heal the sick, deliver the oppress, and to make every impossibilities possible, for kingdom expansion and God’s glory. You too can possess this power today.
“For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are far off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.Acts 2 : 3
Give Me A Double Portion
1. Long ago in days of old, stood a man of God we’re told,
As he talked to Elijah that day;
His request he did repeat, standing at Elijah’s feet,
“A double portion” I can hear him say.
Give me, Lord, a double portion, pour Thy Spirit on me,
Thru eyes of faith Thy wondrous works I can see,
But I need Thy helping hand, in this troubled, sinful land,
Give me, Lord, a double portion from Thee.
2. As Elijah stood that day, to Elisha he did say,
“Ask me what I shall do unto thee,”
And Elisha then replied, walking at Elijah’s side,
“A double portion, let it fall on me.
3. Lord, I always to Thee, pray, just for strength from day to day,
But I see there’s so much to be done,
That I have to kneel anew and this favor ask of you,
A double portion — this fight must be won.
