HINDRANCES TO SOUL-WINNING – Dr Paul Enenche

FEBRUARY 2022 TESTIMONIES AND THANKSGIVING SERVICE – SUNDAY 27TH FEBRUARY 2022

ANCHOR SCRIPTURE(S): 2 TIMOTHY 4:1-2

SERVICE OBJECTIVE(S): Understanding the hindrances we must overcome that affect our soul-winning efforts

THINGS TO NOTE:

  1. Soul-winning is the heartbeat of God (John 3:16; 2 Pet. 3:9)
  2. Soul-winning is every believer’s responsibility (Mark 16:15-20; Matt. 28:18-20)
  3. Soul-winning attracts rewards and answers from God (Luke 22:35; John 4:35-36; 15:16)
    As we attend to the concerns of God, God attends to our concerns

HINDRANCES TO THE LIFESTYLE OF SOUL-WINNING:

  1. A lack of focus on eternal values and issues/matters (Matt. 6:19-21, 33; Phil. 1:21; 1 Cor. 9:16)
    This is where a life is totally focused on earthly or mundane matters
    It is important that we live a life that is focused on Heaven’s values
  2. Distance from the vine (John 15:4-5)
    Fruitfulness in life is a product of fellowship with the Vine – Jesus.
    Connectivity with the Vine equals productivity in life
  3. Focus on life’s challenges or distractions (John 15:16; Job 42:10)
    Inside the assignment is the answer
    Your fulfilment is in your commitment
    The service that will change your story is what the devil doesn’t want you to do
  4. Waiting for perfect timings or conditions (Eccl. 11:4)
    The most critical thing is the conviction and not the condition
    If the condition is wrong but the conviction is right, then follow the conviction.
    All that matters is the conviction and not the condition
  5. The failure of expected results (Eccl. 11:6; Gal. 6:9)
    You may have tried to impact people but they are not responding
    Keep sowing the seed of the Word; preach to as many people as you can, some may change and some may not change. Your own issue is to discharge your responsibility and leave the results to God.
    Don’t be tired of doing the right thing

COUNSEL:

  1. Allow nothing to hinder you from existing as a fruit-bearing Christian
  2. Determine the prove the faithfulness of God through prompt obedience (Deut. 28:1-2)

PRAYER
Father, thank You for Your Word to me today. To You be all the glory Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
