How to Bring Loved Ones and Family to Christ
Dr. Adrian Rogers
I Corinthians 9:14
I want to talk to you tonight about how to bring your
loved ones and family members to Jesus. How many of
you have loved ones and family members that are lost?
Let me see your hand. Hold them up, and then I want
to look. Got loved ones and family members that are
lost? Alright, take them down. Now, if I were to ask
it the other way: how many of you have no loved ones
or family members that are lost? I don't think any of
us could lift our hand. If we could, that means that
we have a very small family, or we don't have very
many loved ones, or else we really don't know what the
pastor was asking, or else God has been extremely,
extremely good to us. Most of us, almost all of us,
have loved ones and family members that are lost and I
believe that most of us would say they seem to be the
hardest to witness to. They seem to be the hardest to
tell about the Lord Jesus Christ.
I want us to see tonight from two major passages of
scripture, one in Corinthians and the other in First
Peter, how we really might have that attitude and then
what plan ought we to have to bring our loved ones to
Jesus Christ? No greater assignment and no greater joy
could be ours than to bring our loved ones to Christ!

who ever lived outside the apostle Paul, said this,
Even if I were utterly selfish and had no care for
anything but my own happiness, I would choose, if I
might, under God, to be a soul-winner. For never did
I know perfect, overflowing, unutterable happiness of
the purest, most ennobling order until I first heard
of one who had sought and found the Savior through my
means (that is, through my witness, through my
testimony). No young mother ever so rejoiced over her
firstborn child; no warrior ever so exalted over a
hard-won victory. What the great Spurgeon said ...
