I believe that before we step out to win a person for Christ, we need to be determined to demolish every argument that exists against our plans to evangelize and cancel whatever is stopping us from speaking to people. The first step we should take is a personal one. As leaders, we should first ensure that our commitment toward God is in a place of excellence; we should therefore assess our spiritual condition and set aside a time to spend with God so that He can show us what He wants to remove from our hearts and lives. This will enable us to conquer the land He has prepared for us and for those who need to be saved.
Here are some steps we took as a ministry so that God could work miraculously in our evangelistic meeting:
1. HAVE A STRATEGY
Do the Vision in your cell groups: Win people and encourage those same people to invite others.
2. PREPARE YOURSELF TO GO OUT AND SPEAK TO PEOPLE
Have compassion on people, just as Jesus taught us to have a merciful heart that loves to do the work of God. We should also long to see God meet the needs of our city.
3. BE A GOOD FRIEND
Friendship is the next best step after you have won someone for Christ. Friendship allows us to know the real needs people have so that we can share with them that God can do something incredible in their lives.
4. SHARE YOUR TESTIMONY
The best way to help people open their hearts to change is to share our testimony with them so that they can see that change is possible. This allows the miracle to happen in their lives.
5. COMMITMENT TO THE INVITATION
When we follow the first four steps, there is no doubt that people will accept our invitation to an evangelistic event. If we determine to carry out each of these steps with love, we will see even greater fruit.
