We are ready for the Global Impact Outreach with our Man of God, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome. “ Send us around the world with the news of your saving power and your eternal plan for all mankind (Psalm 67:2).” We must identify ourselves with soul winning and we must reach the unsaved and unchurched wherever we can find them. If you are not winning souls, you are defeating the purpose of Christ. It’s harvest time and more than 1 million souls are ready to be harvested into God’s Kingdom.
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s Most Important Facts for Winning Souls
“…he that winneth souls is wise” (Proverbs 11:30).
As Christians, we’re all in the ministry of reconciliation; we’re called to win souls. As soul winners, there are certain requirements necessary for an effective ministry in leading men to Christ.
First is clarity; clarity of the message that you preach. You must understand the message of Christ, first for yourself, because you can’t communicate to someone else something you don’t understand. You can’t bless someone else with something that you haven’t been blessed with. You can only give what you have; and so, a good understanding of the Gospel is imperative. Having a clear understanding of the Gospel is vital to effectively communicate it. Otherwise, you’d preach the gospel without the clarity and passion needed to be effective. At Christ Embassy there is a wealth of teaching materials that give in-depth an explanation of what the Gospel of Jesus Christ is. With a full understanding of the overflow of God’s love evangelists plan and execute their strategy for effective soul-winning. When you are ready to execute this plan pray for its success. Pray for the souls you will win. Keep learning and imbibing the word of the Gospel. Get ready for part two of this guide on successful soul-winning.
Secondly, conviction; there has to be absolute conviction in your spirit about Christ and the salvation that He brought for the whole world. You must become fully persuaded of His message, of His person, and of His mission.
Thirdly, possession, as a soul winner, you must have full possession of truth. You may be convinced of something, but it’s not enough. That truth must become yours. Arm yourself with these truths as you go about your soul-winning work, and you’ll be a more effective minister of reconciliation.
“It’s my responsibility to tell people about Jesus.” Pastor Chris Oyakhilome.
This quote from Corinthians 9:16 underpins everything Pastor Chris’s sermons are about. When you have taken this responsibility for yourself it is paramount you do not fail.
Be constantly filled with the Holy Spirit and your zeal will help maintain the healthy glow that comes when you are filled with the Holy Spirit. If you are not replete with the Holy Spirit it will be difficult to draw people in. You will not be able to transfer the Holy Spirit to others if it not within you.
The fact that you’ve received the Holy Spirit doesn’t mean you’ll always be full of Him. You must continually practice being filled with Him. This is the first step to perfecting your soul winning efforts. You must be afire, aglow, enthusiastic and full of zeal about the Kingdom.
Romans 12:11 (AMP) says: “Never lag in zeal and in earnest endeavor; be aglow and burning with the Spirit, serving the Lord.” This is what happens to you when you are filled with Spirit. When you are constantly filled with the Spirit of God and overflowing with His love, it will be effortless to spread the Gospel as it will be in your consciousness.
All your waking moments, you’re to be full of the Spirit, and when that happens, your life will be one of unstoppable success and ever-increasing glory. You will surround yourself with Holy thoughts and sing holy songs.
This will allow you to consciously talk, sing, and make a melody of the Word, in your heart, to the Lord. Your prayers and praise will flow naturally. This is a simple but very profound instruction given to us by the Spirit, and if you’ll practice it constantly and consistently, you will experience the blessings thereof.
Winning Souls with Pastor Chris
Soul winners are precious and influential people in the sight of God. As a child of God nothing should mean more to you than leading those in your world who have not yet known the Lord into salvation. This is something you must take very seriously this year, more than ever before. 2 Corinthians 5:19 says, “To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.”
God has committed to you the ministry of reconciliation; not only did He call you into the fellowship of His Son Jesus (1 Corinthians 1:9), He’s also called you to partner with Him in soul winning. In Romans 12:11 we’re admonished not to be slothful in business, but to be fervent in spirit, serving the Lord. It’s talking about being fervent in God’s number one business, which is soul winning.
You will experience even more success and progress this year as you engage in soul winning and soul winning activities. People are God’s greatest assets on earth. Until you start winning people for Jesus, you’re not involved in God’s asset building. The Lord is always reaching out to the unsaved, to touch their lives with His power and glory; but He can only do so through you. Therefore you must always be passionate about soul winning.
To be effective as a soul winner, you must see beyond your present circumstances; you must see beyond every limitation and refuse anything obstructing your view in this great responsibility. Get rid of all distracting influences and fervently serve the Lord as a soul winner this year. It’s your purpose for being. The Apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 9:16, “For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!”
Keep sharing the Gospel with those in your sphere of contact; it’s the right thing to do, and it’s what God demands.
