Sermon on Luke 14: Compel them to come!

Posted on

Luke 14 vs. 23 And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.

Jesus instructed his followers to compel people to come to the House of God. How could you achieve this?Image result for evangelism

  1. You must know you are a servant of God
  2. You must be willing to serve God.
  3. You must develop or prepare a strategy or plan to serve God
  4. You must ‘Go out’ to serve God
  5. You cannot serve God in the comfort of your bedroom ‘Go out’ to the streets, ‘Go out’ to office, ‘Go out’ to the burdened, ‘Go out’ to the unbelievers, ‘Go out’ to the unsaved.
  6. ‘Go out’ means doing the work of a Missionary or Evangelist
  7. ‘Go out’ means leaving your church for mission fields.
  8. There is no resident evangelist or missionary. Evangelists and Missionaries are always on the field.
  9. Nowadays, we are contended in preaching to saved souls. We focus only on Churches on Sundays and during week service
  10. ‘Go to the highways’. Highways are places you find a crowd and human traffic. Go to markets, public spots, football fields, schools, take over the internet, facebook, twitter, Instagram etc. for Christ
  11. Go to the hedges. These are places that are remote, inaccessible, and difficult to reach. The Hedges are urban slums, coastal areas, mountainous areas, deserts, and Island, villages, Iceland etc.
  12. Compel them to come with spiritual and material gifts
  13. Compel them to come by offering them a ride, give them a meal pack, follow them up, remind them through phone calls or text messages. Visit them, intercede and pray for them
  14. Compel them to come. Pressurize them to come to God’s house!

 

Prayer

  • Holy Spirit teach me how to evangelise in Jesus name

Bible: Essence of Christianity

Posted on Updated on

What is the essence of Christianity? To make money, become rich, become famous, make heaven, or

Philippians 3 vs. 14 – I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

Why am I a Christian?

  1. The main essence of Christianity is not to have riches, honour, fame, children, success or wealth.
  2. All these are needful but not the ultimate prize.
  3. The ultimate prize of Christianity is to make heaven

Prayer

  • I shall not miss the mark in Jesus name
  • I shall not miss the crown in Jesus name

Mark 6 vs. 6And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching.

Effective evangelism-how to be a good evangelist

Posted on Updated on

 

 

Below are factors that can hinder you from evangelising, and how you can overcome them.

 

1.         Rom 1:16   Shame to confess Jesus to the sinners or death world. You must despise shame and preach Christ to them preaching is a command Acts 10:42.

 

The Gospel is the power of God ….Rom. 1:16, Lk.9:25, Heb. 12:2,

Acts10:36,38.

 

2.         Ignorance:- John 1:1-4, 10-12 when we have the light of the Gospel fully in us. We see the reason why we must preach to the Gentiles to be saved. Rom. 1:14-16, 14:9-15, Ps. 82:5, Isaiah 5:14, Hos. 4:6, God wants us not to make sinners to perish due tour ignorance of their salvation according to the knowledge of His word.

 

1.                  Souls value:- Lk.9-25, we must value lives of people and do all we could to see them saved for eternity Heb. 2:3-4. Hell was not made for them, put all your life, resources and money to see Gentiles, Muslims saved. Matt. 25:41, our salvation cost Jesus His life Eph. 5:2, John1:29, 19:30-34, Act20:28, we must sacrifice, do the same to see sinners saved

 

2.                  Fear:- 11Tim. 1:7, Holy Ghost is the spirit of boldness, Acts 4:26-33. Be filled with the holy Spirit in His presence by praying fear will disappear, we must take authority over the darts of fear, doubt and unbelief in soul wining … Eph 6:10-18, Matt.16:18-19, 18:18-20, John 14:13-14.

 

Don’t fear but respect and obey God… study Matt. 10, Lk10… preach, prepare your heart to preach. If they say no you go to another place or somebody… face your fear and do what you fear it will die but fear and respect God… Rom 8:14.

 

3.                  Lack of wisdom:- Prov.11:30, Matt:42, Dan. 12:3. The Wisdom of God is needed Col 3:2,1Cor. 1:24, 30, Deut.4:6, you can pray for wisdom of communication and entering to preach to a Gentiles 1 Thess. 1:8-9

 

Even our appearance, speech, matters too. Character and manner of approach we need God’s wisdom. James 1:5-6 don’t be religious but be wise and allow Holy Ghost to leas you …. Rom. 8:14.

 

If a sister/brought is going on personal Evangelism to a Muslim you can keep your Big Bible at home, put your small one in the pocket and tracts. As you enter their house with greeting you start your daily conversation before you declare Christ because some of them if they see you from far with Big Bible, they will run or hinder you from entering. 1 Thess. 1:7-9, Except if Holy Spirit directs you obey, Act 5:32, 8:29.

 

4.                  Prayerlessness:- Luke 24:49, Acts 1:8, 12-14, 4:24-25, 12-13, Mk. 3:9-13

I have explained much on prayer in the previous pages… pray and live a

      prayer life. It’s our duty and do disobey is a sin 1 Sam. 12:23

           

            Bind satan, loose the sinner, and pull down stronghold 11 Cor. 4:3-4, 10:3-      

      6, 1Tim. 2:1-5, decree salvation upon them ask Holy Ghost to convert them.  

      Acts 2:37, 7:54, John 15:9-14.

 

Missionaries need prayers of others too Phil. 1:19, Eph. 6:18-19, Col. 4:2

      3, Rom. 15:30-31. Prayer network.

 

5.                  Go out 2 by 2:- (two) is an agreement Numbers in the Bible Matt. 18:18-20,16:18-19, if I have brother with a brother they can reach out, sister with a sister they can also reach out to sinners, house to house, streets to streets or mass Evangelism.

 

Husband and wife can do the same too Matt. 10:1-2, Mark 6:1-2, 1213;30,

     Luke 10:1-2, 16-22. you can bring back the report of your souls or their lists

     and address to your church for proper follow-up visitation to invite them into     

     fellowship. Acts 2:39-47, 4:30-37, Heb 10:25, Ps. 33.
