How to Lead a Soul to Christ

  1. Show everyone's need of Salvation. (Christ).
    1. Because everyone has sinned.
      (Isaiah 53:6; Romans 3:23; James 4:17).
    2. Because those not saved suffer the consequences of sin.
      1. Abiding under God's wrath.
        (Romans 1:18).
      2. At enmity with God.
        (Romans 8:6-8).
      3. Result - eternal suffering.
        (Luke 16:19-31; Revelation 20:15)
  2. Show that God provided salvation in Christ.
    (Romans 5:6-8; I Peter 2:24; II Cor. 5:21).
  3. Show that one is saved by trusting Jesus Christ as Saviour.
    (John 1:12, 13; John 3:36; Romans 10:9, 10, 13).
  4. Show that if one sins after salvation, Christ acts as intercessor.
    (Hebrews 7:25; I John 2:1).
  5. Show converts how to grow spiritually. Assure that Christians keep fresh, fragrant, and fruitful and quietly grow into spiritual giants, as acorns grow into oaks, by practising.
Three Talks
  1. Talk to God daily - prayer
  2. Let God talk to you daily - Bible reading
    (Read in order to know and obey the Bible).
  3. Talk about God daily - witness for Christ
    (By speech - life - service)
In my ministry, converts seemed to grow spiritually as they practiced these Talks. Those failing to grow neglected one - then another - then all.
