A SUBMISSIVE SOUL-WINNER
INTRODUCTION: Philip served our Lord and His church as a
submissive deacon and soul-winner. He was committed to sharing
the gospel with the multitudes in major cities or with one man
in the desert. His commitment portrays him as a "point man" in
soul-winning to the first century church. Philip seemed
convinced that God used three things in particular to bring men
to Jesus: first, He used the Word of God, Romans 10:17, "So,
then, faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God";
secondly, He used the Spirit of God, John 16:8, "And when he is
come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness,
and of judgment"; thirdly, He used the Child of God, II
Corinthians 5:20, "Now, then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as
though God did beseech you by us; we beg you in Christ's stead,
be ye reconciled to God."
Note with me:
I. THE SENSITIVITY OF THE SUBMISSIVE SOUL-
A. PHILIP HEARD THE SPIRIT'S CALL. 26
"Arise and go."
B. PHILIP HEEDED THE SPIRIT'S CALL. 27
"He arose and went." - Simple compliance to a
Acts 8:3-5 teaches that Philip was in the midst of
a mighty moving of the Spirit of God, yet the Lord
called him to visit with one sinner that was in need
of our Savior in the desert.
Many would like to leave the one and move to the
multitude, but the Lord called Philip from the
to the one.
