 Seeking the Lost

Brothers and sisters, we are living in times that are unique and challenging. The Bible speaks about these days in many ways, some of which we can see happening now and others that will come in the future. The bible describes in detail that we are living in evil days. (Eph.5:15) The question before us is as God’s child, what am I to do to serve Christ today? Jesus has commanded us to make disciples. (Matt. 28:19-20)
We are to pray for the unsaved, the lost, loved ones, and friends to come to Christ.  They need the Lord!  As the Lord sent somebody to cross your path and share the gospel with you, you should pray that He will use you and I to save a soul. He who wins souls is wise. (Prov.11:30) God used Paul and Silas to save the Philippian jailer and all his household. (Acts 16:25-34) God’s desire is to see His children spreading the gospel by sharing the good news and exhibiting a lifestyle that glorifies God. (2 Peter 3:9) God said why do you say, Lord, Lord and do not what I say. (Luke 6:46) Jesus made it clear that we must pray that the lost will be saved. (Acts 26:18)  

Jesus said, “Go out into the highways and compel them to come in, that My house may be filled.” (Luke 14:23) How can we do this? First, we can be friendly to those we know and those we do not know. Secondly, we must keep the gospel in view as we talk to the lost and unsaved. Jesus has called us to take the message of the cross to families, in the workplace, sports events, and everywhere you are. The Bible calls you and I to share the good news about Jesus’s death and resurrection with those who don’t believe in Christ. 
I want to encourage you to remember that success in evangelism does not depend on your skills, personalities, or immeasurable Bible knowledge. (Mark 4:26–27) It is only through the Spirit of God who uses the Word of God as told by the people of God to evangelize the lost for the glory of God. Let us be faithful in fulfilling God’s mandate.
Love in Christ,
Pastor Vernon Lattimore
