Chapter 1 You Can Be a SoulwinnerCertain requirements must be fulfilled for real success in leading lost souls to Christ. Fortunately, these are few and simple, and anyone can meet them.
First, be a born-again believer. If you desire to bring others to Christ, you must turn away from all sin, worldliness, and selfishness, allowing Jesus to be Lord over your entire life.
Second, truly love others and long for their salvation. If you have no love for other souls, your efforts will be mechanical and powerless; however, if you, like Paul, have great heaviness and continual pain in your heart for the unsaved (Rom. 9:2), the earnestness in your tone and manner will impress even the most uninterested person. Furthermore, you will be watching for opportunities to tell people about Jesus.
Third, have a working knowledge of the Bible. The Word of God is the "sword of the Spirit" (Eph. 6:17), which God uses to convict people of sin, to reveal Christ, and to regenerate the lost. You must use the Bible to bring people to Christ.
Fourth, pray frequently. Pray about whom you should speak to, what you should say, and that you will speak powerfully.
Fifth, be baptized in the Holy Spirit. After Jesus gave His disciples the Great Commission, He told them: "But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth" (Acts 1:8).
The next two chapters contain promises from God’s Word that explain His plan of salvation. Several chapters that follow give specific verses to answer the many objections that unbelievers have to God’s plan. Then, there are chapters containing verses to help the new believer to become stronger and to weather difficult times. The final chapter gives valuable hints for you, the soulwinner.
