WHAT TO DO!
WHAT NOT TO DO!
-Bishop David Oyedepo
No Church grows without people on the go. It is people on the go that grows a Church. Luke 14:23. Whether formally or informally somebody must become an attraction for someone else to come.
Just like in marketing, aggressive marketing is key to making sales of any product no matter the quality.
You must return with souls today. It reflects in the way you communicate the gospel. The compassion that grips you, the love oozing out of you in reaching out to those people.
I said in one of those books that when your thirst becomes a necessity, all your senses will come alive and you will engage all righteous strategy to get results.
1 Corinthians 9:16. Paul was not ashamed of the Gospel and we saw how much results he got.
We must also understand that no matter the quality of the seed sown, it takes watering for it to grow.
A seed that is sown without water dies in the ground. While we go about in sowing the word by reaching out to the lost, we must engage in watering that seed on the altar of prayer. Paul plants, Apollos watered and God brings the increase. So our senior citizens have that responsibility, people that don’t have the privilege of moving about have the responsibility of watering the seed sown on the altar of prayer.
Soul winners use one hand in building, the other hand in holding the spear to cut off the enemy from uprooting the seed planted. So watering is a must for our seed to grow.
Going out without prayer backup can make it a wasteful endeavour. No seed, no matter the quality, will die in the ground without water. God cannot bring increase until the seed is planted and watered (1 Corinthians 3:8).
Aggressiveness doesn’t mean we should become a nuisance to the souls – calling at odd times and visiting anytime and breaking the peace of the home.
Our politeness has a lot to do with securing souls into the Kingdom. You don’t move to a place without an appointment.
We must engage the wisdom of heaven in securing results on the harvest field. Prayers and Supplications with Thanksgiving.
Proverbs 12:14, 13:2, 18:20, Hebrew 13:15.
– None of your labour will be wasted this year.
Never get involved in saying your Church is better than any Church, every Church has its mission. Face your mission. Our mission is to stop the tears of mankind. What we are marketing is come and see how Jesus liberates people in this Church. It is the same Church of Jesus, your Church is not better than another man’s Church.
