RCCG OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR SEPTEMBER 17, 2022 (BENEFITS OF WITNESSING 2)
TOPIC: BENEFITS OF WITNESSING 2
“Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.” – (John 15:16)
READ: Matthew 28:18-20 (KJV)
We will consider another benefit of witnessing today and this will be drawn from our memory verse taken from John 15:16; Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain; that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
All your prayers will be answered if you are a soul winner! Imagine you owning a business, and having a son who keeps bringing in new customers to help expand that business; is there any amount that the boy would ask from you that would be too big? In fact, you are likely to buy him a car before he even asks. That is exactly how God feels about people who win souls for Him. The Bible says there is always joy in heaven whenever a sinner repents (Luke 15:7).
That is why if you are a committed soul winner, all your prayers would be answered speedily. I want you to take note however that in John 15:16, He said if the person wins souls and the souls remain, in other words, if you follow up the new converts until they attain full maturity in Christ, then all your prayers would be answered.
It is not enough to just preach, lead people to Christ and forget about them; you must follow them up with phone calls, Bible Study meetings and so on to ensure that they don’t go back to the world. You must keep them in your prayers always to ensure that you are shielding them from the tricks of the devil to take them back to the world. If you do these, then there is nothing you ask from God that He will not give to you.
Preach the gospel and follow up with new converts to ensure they do not return to the world.
