TOPIC: FRIENDS AND FAMILY OUTREACH: A MODALITY FOR SOUL WINNING

SCRIPTURE: One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ. And he brought him to Jesus. John 1:40-42.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When God saves a person, He has the salvation of that person’s family members in mind.

God commanded us to win souls for the Kingdom. But there are methods and modalities to engage in winning souls.

Friends and Family Outreach is one method or modality for soul winning. This is reaching out and sharing the Good News of God with family members and friends. It is also called “Operation Andrew.”

You know, it was Andrew that brought Peter, his brother to Jesus. And Peter became the pillar of the early church. So, there are people you ignore now who are meant to be pillars in the Kingdom. This includes your siblings, friends, or relations. Andrew brought Peter to Jesus, and Peter was instrumental to the expansion of the Kingdom of God.

So, don’t ignore your family members. Don’t ignore your primary schoolmates, secondary schoolmates, university mates, or people who are close to you.

In Acts 11:13-14, Paul told the jailer, “…Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.” Acts 16:31.

It is important to know that the man’s household was not there with him at the point Paul spoke to him. But Paul said to him, “…and thou shall be saved and your family members.” (Paraphrased)

This means, God saves one person in order to save a household. When God saves a person, He has the salvation of the person’s family members in mind. He saves a person in order to save his friends. He saves a person in order to save those who are connected to him

Beloved, other people’s salvation are tied to your salvation. I have many colleagues and family members that God helped me to influence directly or indirectly. Friends and family outreach is a method of soul winning targeted at bringing loved ones to the saving knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Remember this: When God saves a person, He has the salvation of the person’s family members in mind.

ASSIGNMENTS:
1. Reach out to your friends and family members and win them for God.
2. You can even organise a birthday celebration solely to reach out to your friends and family members with the motive of preaching to them and winning them for Christ.

PRAYER: Lord, I receive Your grace to win my friends and family members for You. Help me not to neglect people who are close to me, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
