MESSAGE #5
SUBJECT: EVANGELISM

INTRODUCTION

A. IF I ASKED EACH OF YOU TO COME TO
THIS PULPIT TODAY AND SHARE A WORD
THE REACTIONS WOULD BE MIXED.

1. SOME WOULD BE VERY
COMFORTABLE DOING THIS.

2. OTHERS WOULD BE A LITTLE
NERVOUS BUT COULD DO IT.

3. STILL OTHERS WOULD
ABSOLUTELY PANIC.

B. THE TRUTH IS EVERYONE IS GIFTED
DIFFERENTLY. WHERE I AM STRONG YOU
MAY NOT BE, BUT WHERE YOU ARE
STRONG I MAY NOT BE STRONG.

C. EVEN THOUGH ALL THIS IS VERY TRUE
EVERYONE HAS A PULPIT. IN FACT THERE
ARE MANY PULPITS YOU HAVE BEEN
GIVEN.

1. THE DEFINITION OF A PULPIT IS A

2. IN LIFE THERE ARE DIFFERENT

D. I BELIEVE AS WE ENTER A NEW
MILLENNIUM EACH OF US SHOULD USE
THE PLATFORMS WE HAVE BEEN GIVEN

SHARING WITH OTHERS THE DIFFERENCE
JESUS CHRIST MAKES IN OUR LIVES.

1. PAUL WAS A PERSONAL WITNESS

2. HIS LIFE WAS ALL ABOUT THE LORD
JESUS CHRIST.

3. HIS GOAL IN LIFE WAS TO SHARE
CHRIST WITH AS MANY PEOPLE AS

b. HE LOVED PEOPLE.

4. PAUL TRAVELED A LOT.


a. HE SAW MANY SIGHTS, BUT HE
DIDN’T GO AS A SIGHT-SEER.

b. HE WENT AS A SOUL WINNER.

H. IN 2 CORINTHIANS 4 WE ARE
ENCOURAGED TO USE THE PLATFORMS
WE HAVE BEEN GIVEN AS A WITNESS FOR
CHRIST.

I. THE SOUL WINNER’S BASIS. VS. 1-2.

A. OUR BASIS IS, FIRST, WHAT WE HAVE
RECEIVED.

1. WE HAVE RECEIVED MERCY.

2. LOOK AT I TIMOTHY 1:12-13;15-16.

3. OFTEN I HEAR PEOPLE SAY “I WANT
MY RIGHTS. I WANT WHAT’S
COMING TO ME.”

4. I DON’T WANT MY RIGHT ...
