The Soul-Winning Motivator #103

Our soul winning passage from the Word of God today is 1 Peter 3:15 which reads: "But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear."

Our soul winning quote today is from Cornelius Stam. He said: "The salvation of the lost is not best accomplished by great popular campaigns, conducted by a small minority of specialists in public evangelism, but by the godly, honest witness of believers individually. It is pure irresponsibility to leave the evangelization of the lost to the ‘experts,’ as many are doing today. God would have every believer do his part to win the lost to Christ by prayer, personal witness and sincere godliness."

Our soul winning devotional is from "Evangelism Is...: How to Share Jesus with Passion and Confidence" by Dave Earley and David Wheeler.

Here is an example of how we can give a reason for the hope that is in us when people question our faith:

How Can You Say Jesus Is God?

One reason to believe Jesus is God is that Jesus, a man of unquestioned integrity and sanity, clearly claimed to be God. In his famous book Mere Christianity, Oxford professor and former skeptic C. S. Lewis makes this statement:

"A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic—on the level with a man who says he is a poached egg—or he would be the devil of hell. You must take your choice. Either this was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us."
