As a child of God, nothing should mean more to you than leading those in your world who have not yet known the Lord into salvation. This is why Soul winners are precious and influential people in the sight of God. The Bible describes those who aren’t born again as hopeless and alienated from the life of God, thus, appointed to the judgment or wrath of God (Ephesians 4:18, Ephesians 2:12; Ephesians 2-3) and they need to hear the message of salvation. Thus, in order to become an effective soul-winner, put the following tips to practice:
1. Planning: plan and execute your strategy for effective soul-winning. Map out times of prayer for souls you will win, include your daily/weekly goals for soul-winning, and set aside days for your evangelism and follow up
2. Be filled with the spirit: Ephesians 5:18-19 Be constantly filled with the Holy Spirit and your zeal will help maintain the healthy glow that comes when you are filled with the Holy Spirit. If you are not replete with the Holy Spirit it will be difficult to draw people in. You will not be able to transfer the Holy Spirit to others if it not within you.
3. Prayer: Pray and ask the Lord to put someone in your heart that you can lead to Christ and invite to church; someone you can share the Word of God with and bring to church. It’s important to pray for the salvation of those in your world, and in far off regions, whose hearts the Lord would make ready to receive eternal life (Acts 13:48).
Make it your life’s purpose that the sinners in your world aren’t going to keep living without hope. Share the Gospel with them. Help them discover God’s light, and receive His righteousness. You’re His witness. He saved you and made you His partner in saving others
