Introduction

We need to be like Christ and seek out the lost that they may be saved. The purpose of this study is to prompt, encourage and equip each individual Christian to do personal work that souls will be saved, God will be glorified and Christian Soul-Winners will receive a reward. Prov. 11:30; Dan. 12:3; Phil 4:1; I Thess. 2:19

John 15:8

Philippians 1:11

Every Christian must be a Soul-Winner.

John 1:12; Acts 1:8; Matt. 28:16-20; Mark 16:14-20; I Peter 4:10,19; Acts 20:26-27

It is the highest honor, the greatest privilege and the most solemn responsibility to be a soul-winner for Jesus Christ.

The Christian that manifests the Life of Jesus is the Salt of the Earth and the Light of the World. (Matt. 5:13-16)

John 1:29, 36 John introduced Jesus

John 1:40, 41 Andrew went and found Peter

John 1: 43 Jesus found Philip

John 1: 45 Philip found Nathaniel

Matthew 4:19—And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. (Mark 1:17; Matt. 4:17-22; Mark 1:15020; 2:1-4,11-14; Luke 4:17-19,24-28,32)

Luke 15:1-7 The Shepherd searches for the lost sheep.

Luke 15:8-10 The Woman looked for the lost coin.

Luke 15:11-32 The father was on the lookout for his wayward son.

The Alpha and Omega of Christianity is

Winning souls is the greatest priority. Soul winning is the very heartbeat of Christ, therefore, it should be ours.

Acts 18:26-28 Apollos and Aquila and Priscilla

Acts 8:26-40 Philip (Following the leading of the Lord)

Acts 20:31 Paul “With tears”

II Kings 5:1-5 a little maid with confidence

II Tim. 1:5; 3:15 Timothy “Unfeigned faith”

Jesus Christ is our ultimate example. Luke 19:10

He called Zaccheus out of the tree – Luke 19:5

Matthew from the receipt of customs – Matt. 9:9; Mark 2:14; Luke 5:27

Peter, James, John and Andrew from their fishing boats – Matt. 4:19; Mark 1:17; Luke 5:10. One by one – “come and follow Me.”

Personal soul-winning is the Divine method for the Christian. Acts 1:8; John 15:16; 8-27; I Peter 4:10,11; Luke 14:23

God is glorified, when the glorious power of his grace is manifested in saving a soul.

Remember: Light shines its brightest in the darkest hour. Matt 1:16; 2:16; 3:16; 4:16; 5:16

Phil 2:15 shine as lights

Luke 12:35; John 5:35 lights burning

II Peter 1:19 A light that shineth in a dark place

Col. 1:12 saints in light

John 1:4—In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

John 5:26—For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;

John 8:12—Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

John 12:46—I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.

John 3:19—And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

The Apostles’ example throughout the book of Acts:

Acts 1:16-22 was a very dark hour for the disciples.

If one disciple may fall for any reason, another must arise.

They needed a disciple that had been with Him from the beginning of His ministry until His ascension There were two candidates, Justus and Matthias.

They needed an eye witness to the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

Matthias was the first choice as one of the leading apostles, but just because you’re not one of the leading apostles you can remain faithful to follow as a disciple of Jesus Christ.

In Acts 2:3, the light appears as the Holy Ghost Fire burns and 120 people become a witness to 3000 people!

Acts 2:3—And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire,…

Acts 1:8—But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Acts 2:4-11, 14, 29, 36-47— Peter lifts up his voice.

Acts 2:21—… whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Acts 2:41—…same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.

Acts 3:2, 4-16, 19, 26— Peter and John witness to one man.

Acts 5:11-42— “all the church” was affected by God’s judgment. The apostles rejoiced in suffering shame for His name.

Acts 6:1-7: 60— Stephen prays for his enemies

Acts 8:26-40— Philip winning a soul through God’s leading

Acts 9:10-20— Ananias through a vision helped Saul

Acts16:26-32 — Paul and Silas winning the jailer

Acts 20:26-27…I [Paul] am pure from the blood of all men.

Acts 24:25 Soul-winning is conversion not just conviction

Acts 26:28, 29 almost is not enough

Acts 28:28 “The Salvation of God is sent”

Salvation is the work of God; therefore, soul-winning is the work of the Believer.

If you are not a Soul-winning Christian, what are you?

Proverbs 13:16—Every prudent man dealeth with knowledge: but a fool layeth open his folly.

What does the Lord say concerning every Christian? We must bear fruit—souls.

Matthew 7:17,19—Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

Matthew 16:27—For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.

Matthew 19:29—And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.

Matthew 25:29—For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.

Mark 16:15—And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

If we are not concerned about winning souls, we will be rooted up. Every Christian must be planted, rooted and grounded in Jesus Christ, but we will die spiritually if we do not witness.

Ephesians 3:17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

Colossians 2:7—Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.

John 15:2—Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

The Seven Elements
In
The Sinner’s Prayer

1. Acknowledge that they are a sinner.

2. Request for forgiveness.

3. Confession of faith in the Blood.

4. Invitation

5. Acceptance

6. Commitment

7. Thanksgiving

Keep words simple, but be sure to include all the important elements of the sinner’s prayer. In being simple yet thorough, the mind, soul and spirit can all be made alive. The specific words used are not as important as the one praying understanding and believing all of these concepts. Salvation is a spiritual birth that you as a believer can witness if you follow the Biblical pattern.

1. Acknowledge

God, be merciful to me a sinner.

2. Request

Forgive me of all my sins.

3. Confession

Wash me in the Blood YOU shed on the Cross of Calvary.

4. Invitation

Come into my heart to be my Lord, my Master, and my Savior!

5. Acceptance

I now receive You, Jesus, as my Savior.

6. Commitment

I will pray and attend the house of the Lord. I will serve You and read the Bible.

7. Thanksgiving

I thank You, Jesus, for saving my soul!

Utangulizi

Tunahitaji kuwa kama Kristo ili tuweze kuwatafuta waliopotea nao waweze kuokolewa. Lengo la somo hili ni kuwaamsha, kuwapa moyo na kumuandaa kila Mkristo ili awe tayari kufanya kazi binafsi ya kuwezesha roho kuokolewa. Mungu atatukuzwa na walioziokoa roho watapokea tuzo. Methali 11:30; Dan. 12:3; Wafillipi 4:1; I Wathes. 2:19

Yoh.15:8—Hivyo hutukuzwa Baba yangu, kwa vile mzaavyo sana; nanyi mtakuwa

wanafunzi wangu.

Wafilipi 1:11—Hali mmejazwa matunda ya haki, ……………

Ni lazima kila Mkristo awe anokoa roho.

Yohana.1:12; Mdo.1:8; Mat. 28:16-20; Marko 16:14-20; I Petro 4:10,19; Mdo. 20:26-27

Hii ndiyo heshima ya juu kabisa, na pia ni upendeleo mkubwa ingawa ni wajibu muhimu kuwa anayeiokoa roho kwa ajili ya Kristo.

Mkristo anayedhihirisha maisha ya Yesu ni chumvi ya ulimwengu na mwanga wa dunia hii. (Mat. 5:13-16)

Yohana 1:29, 36 Yohana alimtambulisha Yesu.

Yohana1:40, 41 Andrea alienda na akamuona Petro.

Yohana1: 43 Yesu alimuona Filipo

Yohana 1: 45 Filipo alimuona Natanaeli

Matayo 4:19—Akawaambia, nifuateni, nami nitawafanya kuwa wavuvi wa watu.

(Marko 1:17; Mat. 4:17-22; Marko 1:15-20; 2:1-4,11-14; Luka 4:17-19,24-28,32)

Luka 15:1-7 Mchungaji humtafuta kondoo aliyepotea.

Luka 15:8-10 Yule mwanamke aliitafuta shilingi iliyopotea.

Luka 15:11-32 Baba alikuwa akimtafuta mwanae mpotevu

Alpha na Omega wa Ukristo ni:

Kipaumbele cha kwanza ni kuokoa roho. Kuokoa roho ndio moyo hai wa Kristo kwa hiyo unapaswa uwe ndio moyo wetu pia.

Matendo18:26-28 - Apolo, Akila na Prisila

Matendo 8:26-40 - Filipo (kufuata uongozi wa Bwana wetu)

Matendo 20:31 - Paulo “Akitokwa machozi”

II Wafalme 5:1-5 - Mjakazi mdogo anayejiamini

II Tim. 1:5; 3:15 - Timotheo “Imani thabiti”

Kwetu sisi mfano wa kudumu ni Yesu Kristo. Luka 19:10

Alimwita Zakayo aliyekuwa juu ya mti -Luka 19:5

Mathayo aliyekuwa forodhani - Mat. 9:9; Marko 2:14; Luka 5:27

Petro, Yakobo, Yohana na Andrea kutoka katika vyombo vya vya uvuvi - Mt.. 4:19; Marko 1:17; Luka 5:10.

Mmoja baada ya mwingine – “njoo unifuate Mimi.”

Kwa Mkristo kuokoa roho ndio njia pekee ya Uzima.

Matendo 1:8; Yohana 15:16; 8-27; I Petro 4:10,11; Luka 14:23

Mungu anatukuzwa kila nguvu zake kuu zinapoonekana zikiiokoa roho.

Kumbuka: Taa huangaza nuru yake zaidi wakati kunapokwa na giza nene.

Mt. 1:16; 2:16; 3:16; 4:16; 5:16

Wafil. 2:15 waka kama taa

Luka 12:35; Yohana 5:35 taa huwaka

II Petro 1:19 taa ing’arayo penye giza

Wakol. 1:12 watakatifu nuruni

Yohana 1:4 - ndani yake ulikuwapo uhai; na uhai huo ni nuru kwa wanadamu wote

Yohana 5:26- Maana kama vile Baba alivyo na uzima nafsini mwake; vivyo hivyo alimpa Mwana kuwa na uzima nafsini mwake.

Yohana 8:12- basi Yesu akawaambia tena akasema, Mimi ndimi nuru ya ulimwengu yeyote anifuataye hatatembea gizani kamwe, bali atakuwa na nuru ya uzima

Yohana 12:46-Mimi ninekuja ili niwe nuru ya ulimwengu, ili kila aniaminie mimi asikae gizani.

Yohana 3:19- na hii ndio hukumu; ya kuwa nuru imekuja ulimwenguni, na watu wakapenda zaidi giza kuliko nuru; kwa maana matendo yao yalikuwa maovu.

Mfano ya mitume katika kitabu cha Matendo:

Matendo 1:16-22 ilikuwa ni kipindi cha giza kwa wafuasi wake

Iwapo kwa sababu yeyote mmoja wa wafuasi wake akianguka mwingine aweze kuendelea mbele.

Walihitaji mfuasi wake aliyekuwa pamoja naye toka mwanzoni mwa kazi yake hadi alipopaa mbinguni.Walikuwepo wafuasi wawili ambao ni Yusto na Matiasi

Walihitaji mshuhuda wa ufufuko wa Kristo kutoka wafu.

Matiasi akawa ndiye chaguo la kwanza kama kiongozi wa waliokuwepo mwanzoni, ila kwa kuwa wewe siyo mmoja wa wafuasi wake wa kwanza unaweza kuendelea kumfuata Kristo kwa uaminifu Katika Matendo 2:3, taa inalinganishwa na Roho Mtakatifu. Moto unawaka na watu 120 wanashuhudia kuokolewa kwa watu 3000!

Matendo 2:3-Wakatokewa ndimi zilizogawanyikana kama ndimi za moto ……

Matendo 1:8-Lakini mtapokea nguvu akishawajilia juu yenu Roho Mtakatifu nanyi mtakuwa mashahidi wangu katika Yerusalemu na katika Uyahudi wote, na Sumaria na hata mwisho wa nchi.

Matendo 2:4-11, 14, 29, 36-47- Petro akapaaza sauti yake.

Matendo 2:21-…Na itakuwa kila atakayeliita jina la Bwana ataokolewa

Matendo 2:41-…na siku ile wakaongezeka watu wapata elfu tatu.

Matendo 3:2, 4-16, 19, 26- Petro na Yohana wakamshuhudia mtu

Matendo 5:11-42- “kanisa lote” likaingiwa na hofu iliyotokana na hukumu ya Mungu. Wafuasi wake walifurahia mateso ya aibu waliyopata kwa jina lake.

Matendo 6:1-7: 60 - Stefano anawaombea maadui zake.

Matendo 8:26-40- Filipo akiongozwa na Mungu anaokoa roho

Matendo 9:10-20- Anania katika maono alimwokoa Saulo

Matendo16:26-32 - Paulo na Sila walimuokoa askari magereza

Matendo 20:26-… [Paulo] akasema sina hatia ya damu ya mtu awaye yote.

Matendo 24:25 Kuokoa roho siyo jambo lakushauriwa bali ni kugeuka kabisa.

Matendo 26:28, 29 Ikiwa kwa machache au kwa mengi.

Matendo 28:28 “Mungu amewapelekea pia mataifa wokovu huu”

Wokovu ni kazi ya Mungu; kwa hiyo, kuokoa roho ni jukumu la kila anayeamini.

Ikiwa wewe ni Mkristu na huziokoi roho wewe ni mtu wa namna gani?

Methali 13:16-Kila aliye na busara hutenda kazi kwa maarifa bali mpumbavu hueneza upumbavu wake

Bwana anasema nini kumhusu kila Mkristo? Ni lazima tuzae matunda - tuokoe roho.

Mt. 7:17,19- Vivyo hivyo kila mti mwema huzaa matunda mazuri. 19 Kila mti

usiozaa tunda zuri hukatwa ukatupwa motoni.

Mt. 16:27- Kwa sababu Mwana wa Adam atakuja katika utukufu wa Baba yake pamoja na Malaika zake ndipo atakapomlipa kila mtu kwa kadiri ya matendo yake.

Mt.19:29 -Na kila mtu aliyeacha nyumba, au ndugu wa kiume, au wa kike, au baba, au mama, au watoto, au mashamba kwa ajili ya jina langu atapokea mara mia na kuurithi uzima wa milele.

Mt. 25:29- Ole wenu, waandishi na Mafarisayo, wanafiki! Kwa kuwa mnayajenga makaburi ya manabii, na kuyapamba maziara ya wenye haki.

Marko 16:15- Akawaambia, Enendeni ulimwenguni mwote mkaihubiri Injili kwa kila kiumbe

Kama hatujishuhulishi na wokovu wa Roho za watu tutang’olewa. anapaswa Mizizi ya kila Mkristo inapaswa kuwa ndani yake Yesu Kristo ila tutakufa kiroho kama hatutatoa ushuhuda wake.

Waefeso 3:17 Kristo na akae mioyoni mwenu kwa imani mkiwa na shina na msingi wenu katika upendo.

Wokolosai 2:7 Wenye shina na wenye waliojengwa katika yeye; mmefanywa imara kwa imani, kama mlivyofundishwa: mkazidi kutoa shukrani.

Yohana 15:2 Kila tawi lisilozaa ndani yangu huliondoa na kila tawi lizaalo hulisafisha ili lizidi kuzaa matunda….

Njia Saba Atumiazo

Mwenye dhambi

Katika Sala Yake.

1. Kiri kwamba u mdhambi

2. Omba msamaha.

3. Ungama kwa imani katika Damu yake

4. Mualike

5. Kubali

6. Jikabidhi

7. Toa shukrani

Tumia maneno rahisi, lakini hakikisha unaingiza katika ungamo lako njia muhimu za sala ya mwenye dhambi. Kwa kutumia lugha rahisi na inayoeleweka, akili, roho na utu wako utapata hai. Maneno yanayotumika siyo muhimu zaidi ya yule anayeungama kuelewa na kuamini mambo yote haya. Wokovu ni sawa na kuzaliwa upya kiroho ambapo anayeamini anashuhudia kama atatimiza na kufuata mpango huu Biblia:

1. Kiri

Ee Mungu, unihurumie mimi ni mwenye dhambi.

2. Omba

Nisamehe dhambi zangu zote.

3. Ungamo

Unioshe katika Damu ULIYOMWAGA msalabani Kalivari

4. Mualike

Njoo moyoni mwangu uwe Bwana, na Mkombozi wangu

5. Kubali

Sasa nakupokea ee Yesu, kama Mkombozi wangu

6. Jikabidhi

Nitasali na kufika katika nyumba ya Bwana. Nitamhudumia Bwana na nitalisoma neno lake.

7. Toa Shukrani

Ninakushukuru Wewe, Yesu, kwa kuoikoa roho yangu!

The Value, Meaning and Need of Personal Soul-Winning

@en

The Value, Meaning and Need of Personal Soul-Winning

The Soul-Winner Receiving And Following. The Soul-Winner must receive from God and must closely follow Christ if he is to be effective. The wisdom and power of influence of the soul-winner are truly from God.

The Value of Personal Soul Winning

Matthew 16:24—… If any man will come after me…follow me.

Philemon 23; Col. 1:7; 4:12; Hosea 6:3; John 8:12; 10-27; 12:26; 21:22; Eph. 1:8; 5:1; I Peter 2:21; Rev. 14:4

Save souls from Hell.

James 5:20; Jude 23; John 3:18, 36

Builds up the Church

Matt. 16:18; Acts 2:47; Luke 13:23-30

Keeps the Church alive.

Matt. 10:32

You will die spiritually if you do not witness.

Prov. 15:24; John 6:63; Matt. 7:13,14; 24:14; I Cor. 1:18; John 1:7; Rom. 1:16

You will be chastened to witness fruitfully and faithfully.

John 15:2—Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

Revelation 3:19—As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

John 15:17—These things I command you, that ye love one another.

The Meaning of Personal Soul-Winning

Evangelism is to the multitude. (Fishing with a big net.)

Personal Soul-Winning is to the individual. (Fishing with a hook.)

Personal Evangelism (one on one) is the greatest means for catching men. For example, here is a common ratio of results:

2 years revival in a church may yield 48 converts: 11 men/37 women

2 years personal work may yield 75 converts: 40 men/35 women

That personal touch reaches the man’s heart. Women are freer than men to respond on their own. Men seem to hold back so they need that personal one-on-one care.

The Gospel is like tonic—it is meant for all.

Mark 16:15 says the Gospel is to be preached “To every creature”. There is not a people to whom the Gospel would be irrelevant or insufficient. The power of the Gospel exceeds even the mythology of the Greek goddess Panacea. (Panacea was supposeably able to heal anybody and everything using a particular potion. The word panacea is therefore used today meaning a cure-all.) Panacea was fictitious, but the Gospel is absolutely in truth a cure-all.

The Gospel can also be likened to a tonic. A tonic is an agent (as a medicine) that increases body tone, invigorates, restores, refreshes, or stimulates. We need the Word of God to stir our FAITH. Everything in the Word is for everybody in every place.

Personal Evangelism is like a prescription—it is for the individual.

Personal Evangelism prescribes to the individual the Word of God for his need of Salvation. A prescription is very specific and it is given for a certain thing for one person in one place. We need to use all means that we have in reaching the lost, but one at a time. We still may hang out a lot of ropes and we are bound to catch a soul on one!

The Need in Personal Soul-Winning

The ultimate need in Personal Soul-Winning is a consistent life that bears witness to the truth and power of the Gospel. People would rather SEE a sermon any day over HEARING one. We must remember the holiness and spirituality of our mission.

NOTE: Go to God for man before you go to man for God. (PRAY)

We need to remember three things about the Gospel.

Go with the Gospel

Grow with the Gospel

Glow with the Gospel

We need to understand three things.

We are Ambassadors for Christ.

An ambassador is the highest ranking diplomat. A diplomat is a government representative. A diplomat must be a tactful person. As a diplomat a person is representing his government. To represent is to take the place of another; such as, the ambassador may be sent in the place of the President.

Being an Ambassador for Christ is the highest calling (HOLY CALLING) and honor with the greatest privilege. We have the most solemn responsibility to represent all Heaven as one of the highest ranking Diplomats of the Kingdom of God.

2 Thessalonians 1:11

John 12:26—If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour

Phil. 3:14; II Tim. 1:9; Heb. 3:1; I Cor. 1:26; II Cor. 5:20; Eph. 6:20; Prov. 13:17

We are living Epistles.

What message is the world reading from our lives?

II Cor. 3:2, 3; Heb. 8:10; 10:16

We are Christians—Christ Followers/Disciples.

The Disciples were first named Christians at Antioch in 43 AD. The Greek word for "Christian," is Christianos. This means "follower of Christ.” Originally, it was probably a term of mocking or derision – "little Christs." Eventually, however, Christians used it of themselves as a name of honor, not of shame (Acts 26:28; I Peter 4:16). Every born-again believer that continues on in truth, faith and love and follows Jesus is a true disciple. Acts 11:26; 26:28; I Peter 4:16

We must live right.
We must talk right.
We must act right.
“Sow a thought, reap an act; Sow an act, and reap a habit. Sow a habit, and reap a character; Sow a character, and reap a destiny.—Charles Reade

Every small virtue or vice leaves its mark. All poor habits must be resisted and all virtues protected. How do we get rid of a poor habit? The only way is to STOP, and not just wean yourself off. Let Jesus take it from the beginning. Drop the habit, don’t try to get rid of it little by little.

Begin with a Habit –

Lose some, and you have

Abit –

Lessen a little more, and still see a

Bit –

Taper off more, but you will still have

It –

Cut all the way down to almost gone, but there is

T – TEMPTATION

And yielding to temptation can bring the habit all the way back! Lay it ALL on the altar NOW.

We need a vision – a two-fold vision

To see Jesus John 1:29-36

To see the field (need) John 4:35; Matt. 9:36-38

We need an aim – a two-fold aim

To know Jesus John 17:3; 16:15

To make Him known John 15:27

We need action – a two-fold action

To know truth – evangelical

To make the truth known – evangelism

To evangelize is to be actively engaged. You cannot evangelize while slumbering and sleeping. Mark 16:15 …GO…PREACH…

We need to be evangelistic and not merely evangelical…

EVANGELICALEVANGELISM

DEFINITION: Knowing or having truth; Having truth stored and not in motion

DEFINITION: Going and carrying the truth; making the truth known

Truth on Ice

Truth on Fire

Preserving It

Using It

A reservoir of pure water. Clean, untouched, and a great fortress that is well-fortified, but going nowhere.

Putting a pipeline into every heart and soul just like putting a pipeline from a reservoir to a needy place. (i.e., water irrigation)

sings – “Hold the fort for I am coming”

Storm the strongholds for God is leading!

The Church is an offensive force and not merely a defensive agent. Matt. 16:18 says, “The gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” The Truth is not something to be defended for truth is Stand alone—does not need to be propped up. Truth is the force to fight with, not a form or a force to fight for.

1 – Truth is Eph. 6:17 – Your weapon (sword) to fight with.

2 – Faith is Eph. 6:16 – Your protection (shield) to resist and to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.

3 – Love is I John 4:8,16 – Your source of strength, power and encouragement. “God is Love” You draw from God His love then give to all men the love of God.

You don’t defend the Word or protect the Word or give your word. Sow the Word of God and let God give the increase. Eccl. 11:6; I Cor. 1:17, 18; 3:6-9; Acts 6:7; Jude 21 “Keep…looking…unto Eternal Life.”

2. Utalazimika kushuhudia kwa matunda na uaminifu wako

Yohana 15:2 - Kila tawi ndani yangu lisilozaa huliondoa na kila tawi lizaalo hulisafisha ili lizidi kuzaa…….

Ufunuo 3:19 - Wote niwapendao mimi nawakemea, na kuwarudi; basi uwe na bidii, ukatubu.

Yohana 15:17-Haya nawaamuru ninyi, mpate kupendana.

Maana ya Mtu Binafsi Kuokoa Roho

Injili ni kwa ajili ya mkusanyiko. (Ni kuvua kwa wavu mkubwa kabisa)

Mtu binafsi kuokoa roho kunamhusu mtu mmoja. (Kuvua kwa kutumia ndoano)

Kuinjilisha mtu binafsi (mmoja kwa mmoja) ni njia kuu ya kuwapata wanadamu. Kwa mfano: Hapa chini tulinganishe matokeo.

Kwa miaka 2 ya uamsho katika kanisa tunaweza kuzalisha;

Watu 48 waliookolewa: Wanaume 11 na wanawake 37

Na kwa miaka 2 ya kazi ya mtu binafsi inaweza kuzaa

Watu waliookoka 75: Wanaume 40 na wanawake 35

Njia ya kuwasiliana na mtu binafsi inaugusa moyo wake. Wanawake wako huria zaidi kuitikia wito kuliko wanaume. Wanaume wanajizuia zuia kwa hiyo wanahitaji kuhudumiwa kibinafsi; mtu mmoja kwa mtu mmoja.

C. Injili ni kama soda ambayo huchangamsha – ni kwa ajili ya wote.

Marko 16:15 - Akawaambia, enendeni ulimwenguni mwote mkaihubiri injili kwa kila kiumbe. Hakuna watu ambao injili haiwahusu au haitoshi. Nguvu ya injili inazidi hata zile za kufikirika katika simulizi za miungu – wa Kigiriki kama yule aitwaye Panasea. (Panasea alisemekana kuwa ni kimungu kilichokuwa na uwezo wa kutibu mtu yeyote au kitu chochote kwa kutumia dawa fulani. Neno Panasea linatumika siku hizi kumaanisha dawa ya kila kitu.

Injili inaweza pia kulinganishwa na soda. Soda ni kiburudisho (kama ilivyo dawa) ambayo huutuliza mwili, huuchangamsha, huurudishia siha njema na huusisimua. Tunalihitaji neno la Mungu kuiamsha IMANI yetu. Chochote kilichoko katika neno la Mungu ni kwa ajili ya kila mtu..

D. Injili kwa mtu binafsi ni kama amri- ni kwa ajili yake huyo mtu mmoja.

Injili kwa kila mtu mmoja inamwelekeza Neno la kumfaa yeye binafsi ili aweze kuokolewa. Amri hutolewa kwa lengo maalumu, kuhusu mahali na kitu kimoja. Tunahitaji kutumia kila njia tuwezayo kuwafikia roho za watu waliopotea mmoja mmoja kwa wakati tofauti. Huenda tukalazimika kuweka mitego mingi na tukafanikiwa kuokoa roho moja.

#Mahitaji ya mtu binafsi ya kuokoa Roho

Hatimaye ni mtu mmoja mmoja anayeweza kuokoa Roho za watu kwa kuishi ukweli unaompendeza Mungu kwa ushuhuda na kuongozwa na Injili. Watu wanapenda kuona Injili kwa matendo kuliko kuisikia tu. Tunapaswa kukumbuka utakatifu na usafi wa moyo katika safari yetu ya kiroho.

ANGALIZO: Nenda kwa Mungu kwa ajili ya kumpata mwanadamu kabla hujaenda kwa Mwanadamu kwa ajili ya kumpata Mungu (SALI)

Inabidi tukumbuke vitu vitatu kuhusu injili.

1. Nenda na injili

2. Kukua kiroho na injili

3. Angaza na injili

Tunatakiwa tuelewe vitu vitatu.

1. Sisi ni mabalozi wa Kristo

Balozi ni ofisa wa ngazi ya juu anayeiwakilisha serikali. Ofisa anayeiwakilisha serikali ni lazima awe na mbinu nzuri. Kama balozi anaiwakilisha serikali yake. Kuwakilisha ni kushika nafasi badala ya mtu nmwingine; kwa mfano balozi anaweza kutumwa badala ya Rais.

Ukiwa ni balozi wa Kristo umeitikia wito wa juu kabisa (WITO MTAKATIFU) ambao una marupurupu mengi mno. Tunao wajibu mkubwa wa kuiwakilisha mbingu kama Mabalozi wa Ufalme wa Mungu.

2 Wathesalonike. 1:11-Kwa hiyo tuwaombee ninyi siku zote, ili Mungu wetu awahesabu kwamba mmekustahili kuitwa kwenu, akatimiza kila haja ya wema na kila kazi ya imani kwa nguvu.

Yoh. 12:26 - Mtu akinitumikia, na anifuate; nami nilipo, ndipo na mtumishi wangu atakapokuwepo. Tena mtu akinitumikia, Baba atamheshimu

Fil 3:14; II Tim. 1:9; Ebr. 3:1; I Wakor. 1:26; II Wakor. 5:20; Efe 6:20; Methali. 13:17

2. Sisi ni Nyaraka zilizo hai

Je ulimwengu unapata ujumbe gani unapoyasoma maisha yetu?

II Wakor. 3:2, 3; Waebr. 8:10; 10:16

3. Sisi ni Wakristo - Wamfuatao Kristo / Wafuasi

Wafuasi wa Kristo waliitwa Wakristo huko Antiokia mwaka 43 baada ya kuzaliwa Kristo. Neno la Kigiriki la neno Mkristo ni Christianos. Hili neno maana yake ni mfuasi wa Kristo. Mwanzoni neno hili lilikuwa kama la kejeli au dharau – “Kakristo kadogo.” Hata hivyo, siku za baadaye, Wakristo wenyewe walianza kulitumia kama jina la heshima (Matendo 26:28; I Petro 4:16). Kila mtu aliyeokoka huenenda kwa ukweli, imani na upendo na kumfuata Yesu. Huyu ni mfuasi wa kweli wa Yesu Matendo 11:26; 26:28; I Petro 4:16

a. Lazima tuishi ipasavyo.

b. Ni lazima tuseme ukweli.

c. Ni lazima tutende kwa haki.

“Otesha wazo, vuna tendo na ujipate tabia.

Otesha tabia, uvune mwenendo na utajipatia maisha.”

—Charles Reade

Kila tendo dogo la wema au uovu huacha kovu. Matendo yote ya kimasikini yanapaswa kukataliwa na matendo mema yalindwe. Je tutaondoaje matendo ya kimasikini? Njia pekee ni KUACHA, sio kusitisha kwa muda. Mwachie Yesu abebe toka mwanzo. Acha kabisa tabia mbaya usiipunguze kidogo kidogo.

Anza na Tamaa –

Punguza kidogo, na utabaki na

Kidogo –

Toa tena kidogo, na utaendelea kuona

Kidogo –

Kata utambi kidogo, lakini bado unacho kipande

Chake –

Kata mpaka chini karibu uumalize, lakini bado

ipo – Tamaa

Kwa kuendekeza tama inaweza kukurudishia tabia uliyokuwa nayo! Yaweke YOTE katika alitare SASA.

Tunahitaji kuwa na maono – maonyo chanya.

Kumuona Yesu Yohana 1:29-36

Kuona makutano (mahitaji) Yohana 4:35; Mt.. 9:36-38

Tunahitaji kuwa na lengo – lengo chanya

Kunjua Yesu Yohana 17:3; 16:15

Kumtangaza Bwana Yohana 15:27

Tunahitaji matendo – Matendo chanya

Kuufahamu ukweli – wa kiinjili

Kuufanya ukweli ujulikane– Injili

Kuihubiri injili ni kujihusisha kikamilifu. Huwezi kuitangaza Injili ukiwa unadinzia au ukiwa umelala. Marko 16:15 …NENDA…KAHUBIRI…

Inabidi tuwe wainjilishaji na siyo tuwe wa injili. .…

KIINJILIUINJILISTI

UFAFANUZI: Kufahamu au kujua ukweli; kuwa na ukweli ambao umehifadhiwa bila kuwekwa katika matumizi yeyote

UFAFANUZI: Kuubeba na kuutangaza ukweli

Ukweli ulio juu ya barafu

Ukweli unaowaka moto

Uliohifadhiwa

Unaotumika

Hifadhi ya maji safi salama ambayo hayaguswa, kama gereza imara ambalo halina kazi.

Unganisha bomba katika kila moyo na roho kama kuweka bomba la maji kwenye kianzio na kuyaelekeza katika sehemu yenye mahitaji (mf.kilimo cha umwagiliaji)

Huimba – “Shikilia funguo zako kwa

kuwa ninakuja”

Ingilia mlangoni kwa kuwa Mungu anaongoza!

Kanisa linazo nguvu nyingi sio wajibu wake kujilinda. Mt. 16:18 anasema, “Malango ya kuzimu hayatakuwa kizuizi.” Ukweli siyo kitu cha kutetewa ukweli husimama wenyewe – ukweli hauhitaji kusaidiwa. Ukweli ni nguvu ya kupigana siyo mfumo au jeshi la kupiganiwa.

1 – Ukweli ni Waefeso. 6:17 – Silaha yako (Upanga) ya kupigana nayo.

2 – Imani ni Waefeso. 6:16 – ni ulinzi wako (ngao) kujizuia au kuzima mishale mikali ya yule muovu.

3 – Upendo ni I Yohana 4:8,16 – Chimbuko la uwezo wako, nguvu na motisha. “Mungu ni Upendo” unachota kutoka kwa Mungu upendo wake ambao unawapatia wanadamu wake.

Hulichungi neno la Mungu au kulilinda au kutoa neno lako. Otesha neno la Mungu na umwachie Mungu alipatie uzao. Eccl. 11:6; I Wakor. 1:17, 18; 3:6-9; Matendo 6:7;Yuda 21 “Jilindeni…mkijongea…katika Uzima wa Milele.”

The Preparation of the Personal Evangelist

@en

The Preparation of the Personal Worker

Matthew 4:19—“And He saith unto them, follow me and I will make you fishers of men.”

Dedication

We must be dedicated to the Lord.

We need complete and absolute devotion to the Lord. Samuel was devoted to every word of God and became a prophet. His cry was “Speak Lord, thy servant heareth.”

Samuel woke up to learn the voice of God

Samuel grew up to obey the voice of God

Saul went from a sinner to a servant of God. Saul of Tarsus became PAUL THE GREAT APOSTLE. He asked the question in Acts 9:6, “Lord, what wilt THOU have me to do.” Saul made his decision to serve God and God made him a choice vessel to bear His name. An instant’s decision was turned into a lifetime dedication. I Cor. 6:19, 20 tells us that we are the Lord’s. Because He bought us with His own blood, It is up to us to surrender and devote our lives to Him.

Dedicated to the task

Complete dedication to the work and service of the Lord is the second requirement. Our task and service is outlined in Matt. 28:19, 20: Go ye…Teach all…Baptizing…Teaching them to observe all things that I have…Lo, I am with you…

Acts 20:19-21—Serving the Lord with all humility of mind, and with many tears, and temptations, which befell me by the lying in wait of the Jews:20 And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you, but have shewed you, and have taught you publickly, and from house to house,21 Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.

Acts 8:29 “Go near and join thyself to this chariot.” This is a special call to a specific place to meet a specific need in a particular person.

The Apostle Paul’s lifetime dedication is summed up in 10 charges from II Timothy 4:1-8:


Preach the Word

Be instant in season and out of season

Watch thou in all things

Endure afflictions

Do the work

Make full proof of thy ministry

Fight the good fight

Finish your course

Keep the faith

Love His appearing


We Must Go!

Jesus said, “Go” Matt. 28:19,20

The Spirit said, “Go” Acts 8:29

The apostle said, “Go” I Tim. 4:5 “Evangelist”

Dedicated to the person

Dedication is an unselfish love and a spiritual desire to help other people. Don’t be like a salesman, like you’re adding another soul to the collection. Don’t be counterfeit, be real. Remember the sad accusation –“Your actions speak so loud, I can’t hear what you are saying.”

Our demeanor and spirit must be – Pure – Genuine – Righteous. If you want to win them to God, love them. Do not be selfish, but righteous. We must be motivated by genuine empathy. We must be moved by compassion. Matt. 9:36

John 21:15,16,17 “Feed my lambs” – undeveloped

“Feed my sheep” – developing

“Feed my sheep” – until (Eph. 4:13)

Acts 20:28 Feed the church of God.

James 1:27 “Visit” but keep pure, undefiled and unspotted.

Purpose

The soul winner’s purpose is to please Christ (not man).

Luke 16:15; John 5:44; 12:42, 43

Live like it –

Rom. 12:2; Eph. 4:1; II Tim. 2:4; Heb. 11:24, 25; I John 2:15

Talk like it –

Eph. 4:29; II Tim. 4:12

Dress like it –

Deut. 22:5; I Tim. 2:9; I Peter 3:3;; Col. 3:12-17; I Cor. 11:1-15-34

MODEST – A limit; restrained by a sense of propriety; not forward or bold; impretending; bashful, diffident; free from anything suggestive of sexual impurity; pure; moderate; not excessive, extreme, or extravagant.

SHAMEFACEDNESS – Downcast eyes, bashfulness, modesty towards men, awe towards God, reverence.

BROIDED – To twine or braid – plait with costly array, concentrated rather than constrained.

The Personal Worker’s purpose is to present Christ.

“Ye are my witnesses saith the Lord.” Isa. 42:10; Acts 1:8

Remember you are presenting Christ to a sinner so build up in their mind the truth that Christ is the ONLY Savior.

Two important things in presenting Christ –
The Situation

First, let’s look at the Situation (preferably one-on-one). It decreases their boldness when you get them alone. Remember to be very careful in dealing with people, they are all different. When a person you’re dealing with has friends, or an audience with him, and it is disturbing. Get them alone. Situation is very important!

John 1:41, 42, 43, 45; 4:7; 7:10; 8:10; Luke 19:5; Matt. 9:25; Mark 5:40; Luke 8:54

The Person

Second, let’s look at the Person. It is necessary to know where they are—spiritually and mentally. Are they are sinner? Have they always been sinner? Are they a backslider?

If they are a backslider, help them to see why they backslid. You’ll never backslide over one experience, it is a process. If you neglect your Christian experience and things continues to happen, and you don’t pray enough to pray through, and get rid of those stumbling blocks by using them for stepping stones to lift you higher, you will backslide. Not just one incident or thing will cause anyone to backslide; it is a process of the enemy to destroy you. The devil secretly sets up these stumbling blocks to destroy but God can use them for good.

Strongholds - II Cor 10:4

Snares – Prov. 13:14; 14:27

Sieve – Luke 22:31; Amos 9:9

Isaiah 8:13—Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread. 14—And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

The Personal Worker’s purpose is to produce a decision for Christ

You are after the decision, and not the winning of an argument. Win a soul, not an argument!
Three things a successful worker will produce:

Impression – must make an impression to gain their interest.

Expression – must give expression.

Two absolutes in a personal workers life –

(a) Word must be – vitally experienced in the heart

(b) Word must be – vitally expressed from the heart

Possession – get them to possess Christ

Must leave them with something – Leave them with a Possession:

The Word & Love of GodàTruth – Faith – Love

Remember – Impression without expression leaves NO Possession!!!

Who should do personal work?

Witnessing is the main work

Of the whole Church –

In the whole world – For the whole age –

To the whole man

Matt. 4:19; 16:24; Acts 1:8

We will not be effective without prayer.

Personal Prayer – Matt. 17:21; 21:22; James 5:17,18
Group Prayer – Matt. 18:19 Acts 4:24-31
Interceding Prayer (for the lost) – John 17:9, 15

Pray specifically. Mention their names, problems, need. (Luke 18:1-18) In preparation, you must be a man of prayer. The first thing you do in the morning is slip out of bed and pray.

IV. Maandalizi ya muhubiri

Matayo 4:19—“Naye akawambia nifuateni mimi nami nitawafanya kuwa wavuvi wa watu.”

Kumbukumbu

Tunapaswa kutengwa kwa ajili ya Bwana.

Tunahitaji kujitolea kikamilifu kwa Bwana.. Samweli alijitoa kikamilifu kwa kila neno la Mungu na akawa nabii. Kilio chake kilikuwa, “Ongea Bwana mtumishi wako anakusikia.”

Samweli alinyanyuka na kuisikiliza sauti ya Mungu

Samweli alikua na akaitii sauti ya Mungu.

Saulo aliondokana na dhambi na kugeuka mtumishi wa Mungu. Saulo wa Tarsus akawa PAULO MFUASI SHUPAVU. Aliuliza swali hilo katika Matendo 9:6, “Bwana wapenda nifanye nini?” Saulo alifanya uamuzi wake wa kumtumikia Mungu na Mungu akamfanya chombo cha kulibeba jina lake. Uamuzi wa ghafla uligeuka uamuzi wa kujiweka wakfu maishani.. I Wakor. 6:19, 20 tunaambiwa kwamba sisi ni wa Bwana kwa sababu alitununua kwa damu yake mwenyewe. Kwa kuwa alitununua kwa damu yake mwenyewe ni jukumu letu kukubali na kuyatoa maisha yetu kwake.

2. Jitume katika kazi ya Bwana

Kujituma kikamilifu katika kazi na huduma ya Bwana ni kitu cha pili kwa ulazima. Jukumu na huduma yetu imepangwa katika Mt. 28:19, 20: Enendeni …mkawafanye mataifa yote kuwa wanafunzi …Mkiwabatiza …mkiwafundisha kuyashika yote niliyowaamuru …tazama, mimi nipo pamoja nanyi…

Matendo 20:19-21—Nikimtumikia Bwana kwa unyenyekevu wote na kwa machozi na majaribu yaliyonipata kwa hila za Wayahudi ya kuwa sikujiepusha katika kuwatangazia neno lolote liwezalo kuwafaa bali naliwafundisha waziwazi, na nyumba kwa nyumba nikiwashuhudia Wayahudi na Wayunani wamtubie Mungu na kumwamini Bwana wetu Yesu Kristo.

Matendo 8:29 “Sogea katibu na gari hili, ukashikamane nalo.” Huu ni wito maalumu kuhusu mahali maalumu kwa mahitaji maalumu kwa ajili ya mtu maalumu.

Maisha ya Mtume Paulo yalitengwa na kujumlishwa katika madai 10 kutoka 2 Timotheo 4:1-8 ambayo ni:


Kuhubiri Injili

Kuwepo mara katika msimu na nje ya msimu

Kulinda

Kuvumilia mabaya

Ifanye kazi ya Injili

Lihubiri neno uwre tayari wakati ukufaao na wakati usiokufaa

Pigana vita vilivyo vizuri

Timiliza huduma yako

Ilinde Imani

Kupende kufunuliwa kwake


Ni lazima Tuende!

Yesu alisema, “Nenda” Mt.. 28:19,20

Roho alisema, “Nenda” Matendo 8:29

Mtume alisema, “Nenda” I Tim. 4:5 “Mwinjilisti”


3. Iliyotolewa kwa mtu

Kutolewa ni kuondolewa ubinafsi katika upendo na kuwa Roho ua kupenda kusaidia watu wengine. Usiwe kama bwana mauzo, kama unayaongeza roho nyingine katika mkusanyiko wako. Usiwe mlaghai uwe mkweli. Kumbuka shutuma za kusikitisha – “matendo yako yana kelele kiasi kwamba siwezi kuelewa unachesema.”

Mwenendo wetu na dhamira ni lazima ziwe – safi – ya kweli – Nyoofu. Iwapo unataka uwaokoe kwa ajili ya Mungu wapende. Usiwe mchoyo ila uwe mnyoofu.

Tunapaswa kupata hamasa kutokana na uwezo wa kweli wa kuhisi maono ya wengine. Inatupasa tusukumwe na hamu ya kutenda wema. Mt. 9:36

Yohana 21:15,16,17 “Lisha kondoo zangu wachanga” – Wachanga

“Lisha kondoo zangu” – Wanaokuwa

“Lisha kondoo zangu” – Hadi (Waef. 4:13)

Matendo 20:28 Lisha kanisa la Mungu.

Yakobo 1:27 “Tembelea” ila waweke katika hali ya usafi, bila kunajisiwa na wasiwe na mawaa.

Lengo

Lengo la muokoaji wa Roho ni kumfurahisha Kristo (sio mwanadamu).

Luka 16:15; Yohana 5:44; 12:42, 43

Ishi kama lilivyo neno –

Warumi 12:2; Waefeso 4:1; II Tim. 2:4; Waebr.11:24, 25; I Yohana 2:15

Ongea kama lilivyo neno –

Waefes. 4:29; II Tim. 4:12

Vaa kama lilivyo neno –

Kumbukumbu la Torati. 22:5; I Tim. 2:9; I Petro 3:3; Wakol. 3:12-17;

I Wakor. 11:1-15-34

KIASI – Kwa kipimo, kwa kujizuia kwa kutokuwa mbinafsi kwa kujiweka mbele au kwa kuwa shupavu kwa kutojifanya kujua, kulazimisha mambo kujivuna uwe mbali na wazo lolote la kumsujudia mtu kimapenzi, safi; mwenye kujua kiasi; asiyezidisha wala kupunguza; asiyepindukia wala kuwa mtapanyaji

KUAIBIKA – kujinyenyekesha, kulazimisha mambo, kuwa na kiasi kwa wenzako, muogope Mungu, jua kutambua wengine.

MSUKO WA NYWELE – Kusuka kwa nyuzi au msongo – kusuka nywele kwa gharama kubwa kwa ustadi badala ya kwa kujizuia.

Jukumu la mtumishi binafsi ni kumwakilisha Kristo.

“Nanyi mtakuwa mashahidi wangu asema Bwana.” Isa. 42:10; Matendo 1:8

Ukumbuke kwamba unamwakilisha Kristo mbele ya mdhambi, kwa hiyo jenga katika akili yake kwamba Kristo ndiye mkombozi wake pekee.

Mambo mawili muhimu katika kumuwakilisha Kristo:-
Hali ilivyo

Kwanza, tuangalie hali ilivyo (ikiwezekana iwe ni mtu mmoja kwa mmoja). Unapokuwa na mtu mmoja ukaidi hupungua na ni rahisi zaidi kumshauri. Kumbuka kuwa mwangalifu sana unapojishughulisha na watu kwani kila mtu ni tofauti na mwingine. Unapokuwa na mtu ambaye yuko na marafiki au watu wengine wako naye kwa hiyo kuna usumbufu fulani mtenganishe. Ni muhimu kutambua Hali ya mahali ulipo! Yoh. 1:41, 42, 43, 45; 4:7; 7:10; 8:10; Lk. 19:5; Mt.. 9:25; Mk. 5:40; Lk. 8:54

Mhusika

Pili, tumuangalie. Ni lazima kufahamu mtu aliko kiroho na kiakili. Je, ni mdhambi ? Je, ni mdhambi mzoefu au ni mtu anayerudi rudi nyuma?

Iwapo ni mwenye tabia ya kurudi rudi nyuma msaidie ili aone kwa nini hurudi nyuma. Huta kuwa umerudi nyuma kwa sababu ya tatizo la mtu mmoja, huu ni mchakato. Kama utadharau uzoefu wako wa Kikristo ukaacha mambo yaendelee kutokea na usiposali vya kutosha mpaka ukaondoa vikwazo vilivyopo na kuvitumia kama mawe ya kuvukia kwenda ngazi ya juu zaidi na wewe utarudi nyuma! Siyo kitu kimoja au tukio moja tu linaweza kumfanya yeyote arudi nyuma bali ni utaratibu wa yule adui muovu kukuharibu. Shetani huweka vizuizi kwa siri ili kuharibu lakini Mungu anaweza kuvitumia katika kufanikisha kazi nzuri.

Ngome kali - II Wakor. 10:4

Mitego – Methali. 13:14; 14:27

Chekecheo – Lk. 22:31; Amos 9:9

Isay. 8:13—BWANA wa majeshi ndiye mtakayemtakasa; na awe hofu yenu, na awe yeye utisho wenu. 14—Naye atakuwa ni mahali patakatifu; bali ni jiwe la kujikwaza na mwamba wa kujikwa kwa nyumba za Israeli zote mbili, na mtego wa tanzi kwa wenyeji wa Yerusalemu.

Huduma binafsi ya mtumishi ndiyo itakayomwezesha Kristo kuamua

Lengo lako ni huo uamuzi, na siyo ushindi katika ubishi. Okoa Roho siyo kushinda katika ubishi!
Mambo matatu huzalishwa na mtumishi mwenye mafanikio:

Muonekano – Ni lazima kuwa na muonekano wa kuwavutia.

Maelezo – Inabidi uwapatie maelezo.

Mambo mawili muhimu katika maisha ya mhudumu binafsi –

(a) Maneno yanapaswa – Yawe yanaonesha uelewa wa kutoka moyoni

(b) Maneno yanapaswa – yanaelezea ukweli ulioko moyoni.

Umiliki – Wafanye wajisikie wanammiliki Kristo

Inabidi uwaachie kitu fulani – Waachie umiliki:

Neno + Upendo wa Mungu = Ukweli – Imani - Upendo

Kumbuka – Muonekano usiokuwa na maelezo hauachi Umiliki wowote!!!

Nani anapaswa kufanya huduma binafsi?

Kushuhudia ndio kazi yenyewe

Ya kanisa zima –

Ulimwenguni mwote – Kwa kizazi chote –

Kwa mtu mkamilifu

Mt.. 4:19; 16:24; Mdo. 1:8

Hatutaweza kufanikiwa bila kusali.

Sala ya mtu binafsi – Mt.. 17:21; 21:22; Yakobo 5:17,18
Sala ya kikundi – Mt.. 18:19 Matendo 4:24-31
Sala ya kuombea (kwa roho zilizopotea) – Yohana 17:9, 15

Ombea; wataje kwa majina, taja matatizo, mahitaji (Luka 18:1-18) katika maandalizi yako ni lazima uwe mtu wa sala. Kitu cha kwanza utakachofanya kila siku asubuhi kabla ya kutoka kitandani ni kusali.

The Facts about Soul-Winning

The Facts about Soul-Winning

How does a fisherman catch fish?

He must be a fisherman – Experience

He must go – Patience

He must be prepared – Ability

Prov. 11:30 Dan. 12:3 Mark 16:15 I Peter 4:11

Acts 2:46, 47

Continue daily with one accord in the temple.

Breaking bread from house to house.

Ate their meat with gladness and singleness of heart.

Praising God.

Having favor with all the people.

Salvation is in a person

Salvation is not in a church or a minister. Salvation is an EXPERIENCE. I John 5:2 – Salvation is in the SON

Salvation is not just believing something. It is receiving Christ. What does it take to make a millionaire? One must have a million dollars. What does it take to be a Christian? One must HAVE Christ.

H – Heaven A – Accepted V – Vicariously E – Effected

Salvation involves the whole man.

I John 5:12 John 1:12 II Cor. 5:17

Man is made up of three parts –

Intellectual Emotional Volitional
Today many have intellectual conversions. They believe Christ died with a mental consent and believe they are saved. "Feel Something". Walk by faith not feeling. Some fear God and what the Spirit is doing and cry out to the Lord, but don't accept Him as Lord. Will. To accept Christ you must be willing.
Believing truths about Christ. Feeling and fearing things. Matthew 16:24

Salvation is in Christ.
I John 5:12; John 1:12; II Cor. 5:17

Soul winning is introducing a person to Jesus.

John 1:29

John the Baptist introduced Jesus to the world.

John129, 35

We must introduce Him to people – using a plan.

II Tim. 4:2; I Peter 3:15; Col. 4:6; Luke 4:18; Acts 8:30

Two things to depend on in introducing Christ.

The Word of God – Your Bible

I Peter 1:23; John 6:63

The Spirit of God – The Holy Ghost

Acts 1:8

You speak the Word and the Holy Spirit will complete the work. If you do your part, He will do His. Ps. 29:4; Heb. 4:12; Eph. 6:17

To win souls, you need tools.

The KJV Bible – at least a pocket New Testament

Tracts and booklets – (i.e. “Now What”)

The Soul-winning Plan

Engineers need a plan to build a house.

Engineers need a plan to make a machine.

The Counsel needs a plan to run the city.

Soul-winners need a plan to win a soul.

You must have approach questions. You must get a person’s attention before you can tell them anything. Don’t just walk up to a person and ask if they are a Christian. Not everyone that says they are a Christian is a Christian. The following conversations are not the only questions the Personal Worker can ask, but they are merely given as a model.

“Are you interested in Spiritual things?”

Most people are interested, but surprisingly, many responses will be negative. Listen for what they say but don’t respond to it. SHOW KINDNESS, DON’T ARGUE! You are not trying to win an argument, but you are trying to win a soul. Go right on with the next question no matter what they say.

“Have you ever thought about becoming a Christian?”

Again, it doesn’t matter what they say. Go on with the plan.

“If someone was to ask you, ‘What is a Christian?’ What would you say?”

Remember you will receive a vast variety of opinions and statements.

A Christian is one that goes to church.

A Christian is one that does his best.

A Christian is one that is baptized.

A Christian is one that is a good citizen.

A Christian is one that is kind.

A Christian is one that reads the Bible.

A Christian is one that pays his bills.

A Christian is one that prays.

A Christian is one that shows good morals.

“Yes, a Christian does that, but what is a Christian?” Some believe that a Christian is one that doesn’t drink, smoke, lie, cheat, steal, fight, doesn’t go to the movies, dances, game rooms. No – that is a fence post. Christian living is not a matter of can or cannot, does or does not, but will or won’t!

Then quickly go on with the plan, don’t be sidetracked. Remember, you are after a decision as quickly as possible.(The sooner, the better.) With a slight nod of the head, very carefully and naturally, holding out your bible ask –


“Would it be alright if I showed you what the Bible says a Christian is?”

If yes, go right to the Word quickly. As you quote, point for them to read.

Man’s need –

In Romans 3:23, God says that we are all sinners. Point to the scripture as you quote it. They may say that they have never sinned. Ask them if they have ever told a lie. Every man has told at least one lie in his lifetime. Ask, with one finger off to the side, “How many lies does it take to make a liar?” èJUST ONE Rev. 21:8 “all liars will have their part in the lake of fire.’

Sin’s penalty –

Rom. 6:23a “For the wages of sin is death…” This death is a great separation from God. The wages will either come to us or Christ on the cross.

God’s gift –

Rom. 6:23 “…But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ… God has a gift for every one that believes. You can’t earn it; you must accept Him or reject Him.

Place of gift –

John 1:12 says that God gives some power to become the sons of God! Where is the gift – How can I get it ? Where can I find it? The gift is in a Person—Jesus. Faith makes the difference. Our Faith must be in Jesus. Believing and receiving work together.

Say this card was a gift of five dollars, and I said you could have it. It is not yours until you receive it in your possession. That is the way it is with the gift of Eternal Life. You must receive Jesus in your heart – not just believe, but RECEIVE.

John 1:12—“But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name.” The gift of Eternal Life is in the Son. God wants us to have eternal life and not perish.

Man’s action –

Rev. 3:20 says, “I stand at the door and knock.”How to receive Him –With a slight knock on the heart say: “Jesus is now standing and knocking on your hearts’ door and wants to come in, but you have to open the door and receive Him in. ----Pause-----

Then ask, with a slight nod of the head wisely, wouldn’t you like to receive Jesus as your Savior? If they say yes, go right to prayer with them. If they say no or don’t understand yet, go right back over the scriptures again with them until they respond.


Summary of the Soul-winning Plan

Are you interested in Spiritual things?

Have you ever thought about becoming a Christian?

If someone was to ask you what is a Christian, what would you say?

Gather as many examples from them as you can without it being obnoxious.

“Yes, a Christian does that, but what is a Christian?” (Remember not to start an argument.) If they are answering with ease and interested, listen for what they believe.

Would it be all right if I showed you what the Bible says a Christian is?

Rom. 3:23 – The Bible says “for all have sinned” Every sinner must acknowledge his sin and need for the Savior to be a Christian.

a) Man’s need –

Rom. 3:23; Rev. 21:8; Man is sinful and spiritually dead. Spiritual death is separation from God.

b) Sin’s penalty –

Rom. 6:23 – For the wages of sin is death… The wages will either come to us or on Christ on the cross.

c) God’s gift –

Rom. 6:23 Jesus died for all. John 1:12 – The gift of eternal life is in receiving Jesus.

d) Place of the gift –

John 1:12 Faith makes the difference. Believing, receiving, and becoming a child of God. Rev. 3:20 “Open the door” (Jesus is knocking at your heart’s door.)

e) Man’s action –

Rev. 3:20 Jesus is knocking. With a slight knock on the heart say, “Jesus is now knocking on your heart’s door and wants to come in, but you have to open the door and receive Him in.”-----Pause-----

f) The Decision –

Then ask, with a slight nod of the head, “Wouldn’t you like to receive Jesus as your Savior?”Jesus is standing and knocking. If their claim to be a Christian is questionable, ask them, “Are you in right standing with Jesus and living in obedience to His Word?”

Test them with the Word.

Ukweli kuhusu wokovu wa Roho za watu.

Mvuvi huvuaje samaki?

Ni lazima awe mvuvi - Uzoefu

Ni lazima atoke - Utulivu

Ni lazima ajiandae – Uwezo

Meth. 11:30 Dan. 12:3 Marko 16:15 I Petro 4:11

Matendo 2:46, 47

Jambo moja lifanyike hekaluni kila siku.

Mkate umegwe nyumba kwa nyumba.

Kula nyama kwa furaha na kwa moyo mmoja

Kumsifu Mungu.

Kupendwa na watu wote.

Wokovu uko ndani ya mtu.

Wokovu haupo katika Kanisa au mchungaji. Wokovu ni ile HALI ambayo mtu huwa nayo. I Yohana 5:2 – Wokovu uu ndani ya MWANAYE

Wokovu siyo kuamini tu kitu fulani. Ni kumpokea Kristo. Nini kifanyike ili mtu awe milionea? Ni mpaka mtu akishakuwa anamiliki dola milioni moja. Nini kifanyike ili mtu awe Mkristo? Ni mpaka mtu akishampata Kristo.

– Mbingu – Kubali – Tenda kwa niaba – Madhara

Wokovu unamhusisha mtu mkamilifu.

I Yoh. 5:12 Yoh. 1:12 II Wakor. 5:17

Mtu ana sehemu kuu tatu –

Akili Hisia Ridhaa
Siku hizi wengi wanayo misimamo tofauti. Wanaamini Kristo alikuf akiwa amekubali. Na wanaamini wameokolewa. "Hisi kitu fulani" Tembea katika imani yako siyo uhisi. Wengine humuogopa Mungu no kile ambacho Roho hufanya na humuita Bwana ila hawamkubali. Hiari. Kumkubali Kristo ni lazima iwe kwa hiari.
Kuamini ukweli kuhusu Kristo Kuhisi na kuogopa vitu Mat. 16:24

Wokovu u ndani ya Kristo
I Yohana 5:12; Yohana 1:12; II Wakor. 5:17

Kuokoa Roho ni kumtambulisha mtu kwa Yesu

Yohana 1:29

Yohana Mbatizaji alimtambulisha Kristo ulimwenguni.

Yohana129, 35

Tunapaswa kumtambulisha Yeye kwa watu. – kwa mpango fulani.

II Tim. 4:2; I Petro 3:15; Wakol. 4:6; Luka 4:18; Matendo 8:30

Mambo mawili ya kutegemewa katika kumtambulisha Kiristo.

Neno la Mungu – Biblia yako

I Petro 1:23; Yohana 6:63

Roho ya Mungu – Roho mtakatifu

Matendo 1:8

Unalisema neno la Mungu na Roho Mtakatifu ataitimiza kazi hiyo. Ukitimiza sehemu yako, na Yeye atafanya yake. Zab. 29:4; Waeb. 4:12; Waef. 6:17

Kuokoa Roho unahitaji kuwa na silaha.

Biblia ndogo – angalau Agano Jipya

Kitabu cha muongozo au mpango– (Mbinu za kuokoa Roho) Ukweli mtupu

Vijarida na vijitabu – (Yaani “nini kifuate”)

Mpango wa kuiokoa Roho

Mhandisi huitaji ramani ili ajenge nyumba.

Wahandisi wanahitaji ramani ili kuunda mashine

Halmashauri ya mji inahitaji mpango ili iuendeshe mji

Waokoaji wa Roho za watu wanahitaji mpango wa kuokoa Roho.

Uwe na maswali ya kuanzia. Jitahidi kupata utulivu wa mtu kabla hujamwambia kitu chochote. Usimwendee tu mtu na kuanza kumuuliza kama yeye ni Mkristo. Siyo kila anayedai kwamba ni Mkristo ni Mkristo. Mazungumzo yafuatayo siyo maswali pekee yanayoweza kumsaidia mhudumu binafsi lakini yametolewa hapa kama mfano.

“Unapenda mambo ya Kroho?”

Watu wengi wanapenda lakini cha kushangaza ni kwamba wengi hukataa. Sikiliza wanachosema lakini usiwape jibu.WAONESHE UKARIMU, USIBISHANE NAO! Wewe hukuja kushinda mabishano bali unajaribu kuokoa Roho. Endelea na swali linalofuata bila kujali walichosema.

“Ulishawahi kuwaza kuhusu kuwa Mkristo?”

Kwa mara nyingine, wanachokisema hakina neno. Endelea na mpango wako.

“Je mtu akikuuliza, ‘Mkristo ni nani?’ Wewe utajibu nini?”

Kumbuka kwamba utapokea mawazo mbalimbali na maelezo.

Mkristo ni mtu anayekwenda kanisani.

Mkristo ni mtu anayefanya mambo mema..

Mkristo ni mtu aliyebatizwa.

Mkristo ni raia mwema .

Mkristo ni mtu mkarimu.

Mkristo ni mtu anayesoma Biblia.

Mkristo ni mtu anayelipa madai yake.

Mkristo ni mtu anayesali.

Mkirsto ni mtu mwenye maadili mema.

“Ndio, mkristo hufanya mambo hayo yote lakini Mkristo ni mtu gani?, wengine wengine huamini kwamba mkristo ni mtu ambaye hanywi pombe, havuti sigara, hasemi ungo, haibi, hapigani, haendi sinema, dansini nyumba za michezo na kadhalika. Hapana – hiyo ni nguzo ya uzio. Maisha ya Kikristo siyo swala la kufanya au kutofanya kuweza au kutoweza bali atafanya au hatafanya.

Kutoka hapo unaendelea mara moja na ule mpango wako ila usiyumbishwe. Kumbuka unatafuta uamuzi mapema iwezekanavyo. (mapema ni bora zaidi) ukiinamisha kichwa chako taratibu lakini kwa kawaida ukiwa umeshika Biblia yako uliza:


“Je itakuwa vyema kama nikionesha Biblia inasema nini kuhusu Mkristo ni mtu gani?”

Iwapo jibu ni ndiyo nenda haraka kwenye neno la Mungu. Unavyolinukuu lioneshe kwa kidole ili walisome.

Mahitaji ya mwanadamu –

Katika Warumi 3:23, Mungu anasema hivi kuhusu wadhambi. Onesha kwa kidole maandiko wakati ukiwa unayanukuu. Wanaweza kusema hawajawahi kutenda dhambi. Waulize kama walishawahi kusema uongo. Kila mwanadamu alishasema uongo angalau mara moja katika maisha yake. Uliza huku ukionyesha kwa kidole pembeni, “Mtu anaitwa muongo akishadanganya mara ngapi” è MARA MOJA TU Ufunuo. 21:8 “Na waongo wote watakuwa na sehemu yao katika lile ziwa la moto.”

Adhabu ya dhambi –

War. 6:23a “Kwa maana mshahara wa dhambi ni mauti…” Kifo hiki ni utengano mkubwa na Mungu. Mshahara utatoka kwetu au kwa Kristo Msalabani

Zawadi ya Mungu –

Warumi. 6:23 “…Bali karama ya Mungu ni uzima wa milele katika Kristo………… Mungu anayozadi kwa kila mmoja alinayeamini. Huwezi kuipata; ni lazima umkubali au umkatae Kristo.

Nafasi ya zawadi –

Yohana 1:12 Anasema bali wote waliompokea aliwapa uwezo wa kufanyika watoto wa Mungu! Iko wapi hiyo zawadi – ninawezaje kuipata? Niwapi nitaipata? Zawadi hiyo ipo katika Mtu —Yesu. Inani ndio tofauti. Imani yetu ni lazima iwe kwa Yesu. Kuamini na kupokea hufanya kazi pamoja.

Kwa mfano kadi hii ingekuwa shilingi elfu tano, na nikasema unaweza kuichukua. Haijawa mali yako kabla hujaichukua na kuimiliki. Ndivyo ilinyo kwa zawadi ya Uzima wa Milele. Ni lazima umpokee Yesu katika Moyo wako siyo tu kuamini bali KUPOKEA.

Yohana 1:12—“Bali wote waliompokea aliwapa uwezo wa kufanyika watoto wa Mungu, ndio wale waliaminio jina lake.” Zawadi ya uzima wa milele iko ndani ya Mwanaye. Mungu anataka tuwe na uzima wa milele na tusipotee..

Matendo ya mwanadamu –

Ufunuo. 3:20 unasema “Nasimama mlangoni, nabisha.” Njia ya kumpokea Yeye – akibisha taratibu moyoni mwako, sema: “Yesu sasa amesimama na kubisha hodi katika mlango wa moyo wangu na kutaka kuingia ndani, bali inabidi niufungue mlango na kumkaribisha Yeye ndani. ----Pumzika kidogo-----

Kisha uliza, ukiinamisha kichwa taratibu, wewe usingependa kumpokea Yesu kama Mwokozi wako? Iwapo watasema ndio ingia mara moja katika sala pamoja nao. Kama wamesema hapana au hawaelewi bado rudi tena katika maandiko pamoja nao mpaka watakapokuwa na mwelekeo.

Muhtasari wa mpango wa kuokoa Roho za watu

Je unapenda mambo ya Kiroho?

Ulishawahi kufikiria kuwa Mkristo?

Iwapo mtu akikuuliza Mkristo ni mtu wa namna gani utamjibu nini?

Kusanya mifano mingi kama uwezavyo kutoka kwao ila usiwachoshe.

“Ni kweli kwamba Mkristo hufanya mambo yote hayo, lakini Mkristo ni mtu gani?” (Kumbuka usianzishe ubishi) Kama wana majibu rahisi na wanaonekana kuvutiwa na hoja yako wasikilize ili uweze kufahamu wanachokiamini.

Je itakuwa ni sawasawa ukiwaonyesha Biblia inasema nini kuhusu Mkristo ni mtu wa namna gani?

Warumi. 3:23 – Biblia inasema “Kwa sababu wote walifanya dhambi.” Kila mwenye dhambi ni lazima aikubali hali yake ya kuwa mdhambi na atambue kwamba anayo haja ya kupata mkombozi ili aweze kuwa Mkristo.

a) Mahitaji ya mwanadamu –

Warumi. 3:23; Ufunuo 21:8; kwa asili yake mwanadamu ni mdhambi hali inayomfanya kuwa amekufa kiroho. Kufa kiroho ni kutenganishwa na Mungu.

b) Adhabu ya dhambi –

Warumi. 6:23 Kwa maana mshahara wa dhambi ni mauti … mshahara huo utatoka kwetu au kwa Kristo msalabani.

c) Zawadi ya Mungu –

Warumi. 6:23 Yesu alikufa msalabani kwa ajili ya watu wote.

Yohana 1:12 – Ni lazima kumpokea Yesu ili kupata zawadi ya uzima wa milele.

d) Nafasi ya zawadi katika maisha yetu –

Yohana 1:12 Imani ndiyo inayotofautisha. Kuamini kupokea na kugeuzwa kuwa mtoto wa Mungu. Ufunuo. 3:20 “Ufungue mlango” (Yesu anabisha hodi katika mlango wa moyo wako)

e) Matendo ya mwanadamu –

Ufunuo. 3:20 Yesu anabisha hodi. Kwa kujipiga taratibu kifuani sema yafuatayo, “Yesu anabisha hodi katika mlango wa moyo wako na anataka uingia ndani, lakini sharti uufungue mlango na umkaribishe ndani”---pumzika kidogo----

f) Amua –

Kwa kuinamisha kichwa taratibu uliza, “ Je wewe ungependa kumpokea Yesu kama Mkombozi wako?” Yesu amesimama mlangoni na anabisha hodi. Iwapo unatia shaka madai yao ya kuwa ni Wakrito waulize, “Je mmesimama imara pamoja na Yesu na mnaishi kwa kulitii Neno lake?

Wajaribu upate kujua wanavyolifahamu Neno la Mungu.
