Soul Winning Through Testimonies & Evidence Outreach – Seeds Of Destiny Devotional, 28th September, 2022
SCRIPTURE: O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works. Psalm 105:1-2.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Making known to the world what God has done is a method of evangelism or soul-winning.
Our anchor Scripture reveals that testimonies and evidence outreaches are a powerful method of soul-winning. Making known to the world what God has done is a method of evangelism or soul-winning. That was what the leper in Mark Chapter One did when he was healed by Jesus.
But he went out, and began to publish it much, and to blaze abroad the matter, insomuch that Jesus could no more openly enter into the city, but was without in desert places: and they came to him from every quarter. Mark 1:45
Imagine that! One man’s testimony brought people from every quarter. Testimonies and evidence outreach are crucial keys to the salvation of the lost.
The woman of Samaria was another example.
John 4:28-30 says,
28 The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men,
29 Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?
30 Then they went out of the city, and came unto him.
When she gave the testimony of how Jesus saved her, the whole city went out and followed her because of her testimony.
Beloved, the testimony could be your own testimony or another person’s testimony. For example, you could tell someone, “Beloved, something happened in church last week. I was in church and a woman was brought in on a wheelchair. After the message, the pastor prayed for her and commanded her to walk. To the amazement of all, she got up from her wheelchair and began to walk.”
Do you know why this is important? Not everybody may be able to preach but everyone can tell a story. Just tell a story; share a testimony and you will win souls for God.
Remember this: Making known to the world what God has done is a method of evangelism or soul-winning.
1. Don’t hesitate to share the wondrous works of God to relatives, friends, and other loved ones.
2. Every testimony is a message; therefore, understand the message that every testimony is preaching.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to publicise your good works to my generation, in Jesus’ Name.
