Reaching Everyone

Reaching Everyone

written by on the topic of Missions on July, 2008

God commands us to go out into all the world and preach the Gospel to “every creature.” Pastor Trieber has said that one cannot witness to the wrong person. Listed below is a sampling of people we should be reaching with the Gospel:

  • a. Family members – John 1:40-42
    One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ. And he brought him to Jesus…
    Family members are always good prospects for soul winning.
  • b. Other nationalities – John 4:9
    Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.
    There is no room for racial prejudice in the life of a Christian. Red and yellow, black, brown, white – they are all precious in His sight. A true soul winner is colorblind.
  • c. The religious – John 3:7
    Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
    Nicodemus was a religious man, but he still needed to get saved. Religion never saved anyone. We need the Savior, Jesus Christ.
  • d. The immoral – John 8:1-11
    And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst…And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
    Never forget that we are just sinners saved by the grace of God.
  • e. The children – Mark 10:14
    Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
    Praise the Lord for the bus ministry!
  • f. The handicapped – John 9:25
    One thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.
  • g. The sick – Luke 8:43-48
    And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any…And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.
  • h. The dying – Luke 23:42-43
    And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.

Let us be about the business of giving the Gospel to everyone and anyone. Join us each week as we seek to win souls to Christ.

    I love how this has been put together for a clear understanding of what salvation is and is not. I went through life thinking i was saved for many years but thank God He showed me the true way of salvation through Jesus Christ only. I am 54 years old and The Lord saved me September 19th 2008 please pray for me most of my family are lost and believe that false doctrine that you can loose your salvation! Thank you again.
