It is important that you understand why you have to reach out to souls for Christ. This is because it will build up your passion to lead the mystical teachings of jesus. For, passion drives evangelism effectively and successfully. And one major reason is that without salvation in Christ, the individual will perish in hell. However, it’s not the will of God that any should perish. So, God gave the ministry of reconciliation to every believer that we should go and lead others to Christ.
2. Prayer and fasting
This is a very important aspect of soul winning. This is because you can’t win souls in the energy of the flesh. It is the Father that draws people to Christ.
Also, it is the Holy Spirit that converts and not you. So, you need to engage the help of the Holy Spirit. And you do this through prayers. Also, adding fasting to prayer helps you to be more sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit.
In prayers, you ask the Spirit of God to lead you, speak through you, and convert the individual. Also, you ask Him to give you the wisdom for each person you desire to lead to Christ. This is because the method you used for one may not work on another. And the individual thoughts, mindset, or ideas of things differ from one person to another.
Furthermore, in prayers, you ask the Holy Spirit to open the hearts of the people to receive the gospel of Christ. For example, God opened the heart of Lydia to receive the gospel of Christ that Paul was preaching. Also, you pray that they accept Christ as their Lord and Saviour. So, in prayer, you table every detail of the evangelism before God and receive guidance and directions for it.
3. Preach and teach the word
People must hear the word before they can receive Christ as their saviour. Therefore, someone must reach out to them and preach the gospel to them. So, you need to preach to the people you’ve prayed for. But, if some of them are not near you, you can pray that someone will preach to them. Therefore, make out time to talk to people around you.
Jesus went about preaching the gospel from place to place. And He also sent his disciples to go out and preach the gospel. Also, when the disciples were persecuted and scattered to other cities, they continued the preaching of the word in those places. So, the early disciples of Christ kept preaching the word from generation to generation and that’s how someone preached to us too.
4. Share your testimonies
This is another method of winning souls. Here, you tell the person what Christ had done in your life and how your life changed for the better since your salvation. Someone who knew you before and seeing your new you will surely desire such changes in his or her life. And they will open up to receive Christ as their saviour.
The Samaritan woman didn’t say much to the people but shared her encounter with Jesus and they believed. Therefore, use any opportunity you have to share the goodness of God in your life. And believe God to use your testimonies to bring the person(s) to Christ.
5. Lead them to Christ
When you preach Christ to people, always give them the opportunity to accept Jesus as their personal Lord and Saviour. This you do by asking them to say the sinners’ prayer. Here, they believe that Jesus died for them and confess Him as their Lord and Saviour. This is in line with Romans 10:9-10.
