Follow The Master’s Example – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional April 18th

(The Lord Jesus Was A Master Soulwinner, Copy Him)

TO THE BIBLE: Matthew 4:19 NIV
““Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.””

“Lord, why am I having difficulties winning souls in my neighbourhood? I’ve tried talking to some people about You, but they just make fun of me and wouldn’t listen.”

These are some of the thoughts that in the minds of many young Christians when they face challenges in their soulwinning efforts. But the question is, are they copying the Lord Jesus or just trying to do it on their own?

The Lord Jesus was a Master soulwinner. Follow His examples. One day, He encountered a certain woman at the well of Samaria and engaged her in dialogue. The woman came to draw water from the well.

But to get her attention, the Lord initiated a conversation with her on something that was of interest to her—the water. When the Master had her undivided attention, he witnessed to her, and she believed and went about telling others about her encounter with Him. Hallelujah!

Everything the Master did was always geared towards winning souls into the Kingdom. It was His topmost priority. “But, Pastor, how do I engage my friends in a conversation in order to lead them to Christ?” you might ask.

That’s simple; take a cue from the Master. To witness to others, Jesus always knew how to engage them in a conversation about a topic that was of interest to them. Observe what your friends might be interested in, and initiate a conversation along that line.

You can ask them to explain something to you about a book or magazine they might be holding or reading, and then you listen with rapt attention. If you do, they’re more likely to also give you their attention when you start witnessing to them.

The Lord may give you specific instructions about someone to whom you must bear witness. At such times, don’t procrastinate; go right ahead and follow the Lord’s guidance. Do exactly what He tells you to do or say.

Everything in your life should be centered on winning people to Jesus Christ; there is no higher priority for a Christian than this; therefore, make it the top of your list.
