Go And Tell The Gospel



The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, “We have found the Messiah” (that is, the Christ). (John 1:41)

Successful soul winners have their priorities in order.

*******

They See The Sinner’s Condition. They have a burden for the lost. (Andrew was burdened for Simon Peter). They are burdened about his present state (Eph. 2:1-3; Eph. 2:12). They are also burdened about his prophesied state (Luke 16:19-31; Psa. 9:17). They knows that men are headed to an eternity apart from God (2 Thes. 1:8-9). They are moved by this knowledge and they have a desire to snatch men from the jaws of destruction.

They Sense The Urgency Of Sinner’s Need. They know that the night is coming when no man can work (John 9:4). They know that life is just a vapor and that men are perishing without the promise of another minute (James 4:14; Pro. 27:1). They know that the window of grace will close with the return of Jesus. They know that the lost sinner has no inkling of knowing he is lost from God, Hell bound and hopeless, apart from the salvation that can only be found in Jesus Christ!

They Seize Every Opportunity To Share The Gospel. They look for the open door of opportunity wherever it may appear. They are sensitive to the Lord and His leadership. They watch the person they are witnessing to and they seek to sense what the Lord is doing in the conversation. Not every contact is a time of reaping! It may be a time of sowing seed or watering, but that is just as important. Their duty is to Go and Tell The Gospel!
