THEME: BENEFITS OF WITNESSING II

MEMORISE: Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. John 15:16

READ: Matthew 28:18 -20
18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

MESSAGE

We will consider another benefit of witnessing today and this will be drawn from our memory Verse taken from John 15:16

Ye have not chosen me, but l have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it to you.

All your prayers will be answered if you are a soul winner! Imagine owning a business, and having a son who keeps bringing in new customers to help expand that business; is there any amount that the boy would ask from you that would be too big? In fact, you are likely to buy him a car before he even asks. That is exactly how God feels about people who win souls for Him. the Bible says there is always joy in heaven whenever a sinner repents (Luke 15:7).

God is so passionate about mankind that He throws a party anytime someone crosses from darkness into His marvelous light, He is so excited that He throws a party in heaven for each soul that is saved. Imagine then how He would feel about the fellow who preached to that soul. You can be sure that even though the fellow is not in Heaven to partake of the feast, God would send his own portion of the goodies to Him on earth and such person would be very dear to God. That is why if you are a committed soul winner, all your prayers would be answered speedily.

I want you to take note however that in John 15:15, He said if the person wins souls and the soul remain, in other words, if you follow up the new converts until they attain full maturity in Christ, then all your prayers would be answered.

It is not enough to just preach, lead people to Christ and forget them; you must follow them up with phone calls, Bible study meetings and so on to ensure that they don’t go back to the world. You must keep them in your prayers always to ensure that you are shielding them from the tricks of the devil to take them back to the world. If you do these, the. There is nothing you ask from God that He will not give to you.

ACTION POINT
Preach the gospel and follow up with new converts to ensure they do not return to the world.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Ezekiel 32-34

HYMN 30: WONDERFUL STORY OF LOVE
1 Wonderful story of love!
Tell it to me again;
Wonderful story of love!
Wake the immortal strain.
Angels with rapture announce it,
Shepherds with wonder receive it;
Sinner, O won’t you believe it?
Wonderful story of love!

Refrain:
Wonderful! Wonderful!
Wonderful story, Wonderful story of love!

2 Wonderful story of love!
Though you are far away;
Wonderful story of love!
Still he doth call today.
Calling from Calvary’s mountain,
Down from the crystal bright fountain,
E’en from the dawn of creation;
Wonderful story of love!

3 Wonderful story of love!
Jesus provides a rest;
Wonderful story of love!
For all the pure and blest;
Rest in those mansions above us,
With those who’ve gone on before us,
Singing the rapturous chorus;
Wonderful story of love!
