THEME: EFFECTIVE HARVESTERS.
The harvest of The Lord is plentiful and if it is time to harvest and it is not done, the harvest gets corrupted.
Matthew 28:19 and Mark 16:15
We are labourers of The Lord who are suppose to preach Christ to all nations.
Matthew 11:11-12 tells us that we’re at the battle field, and without the use of force there is nothing you can get.
We are suppose to be ANAGKAZOS – to compel, force, necessitate, threaten and to use any means at our disposal to convince and win souls for Christ.
An Anagkazo comprises of a BIAZO and an ANAIDEIA.
BIAZO which means to use force or to force ones way into a thing.
If we want to save souls, we have to use force because the worldly people have been taken captive by the devil. As a Christian, you must do everything to save a soul for Christ.
You need the power of God for salvation which is the gospel in order for you to be able to save someone.
ANAIDEIA which means to be shameless.
Luke 11:5-8 and Romans 1:16
It takes shamelessness to do the work of The Lord. If you want to be used by God, you have to come out of your comfort zone.
People will give excuses but a person with an Anagkazo spirit overlooks those excuses.
Everybody you meet and everywhere you find yourself is an opportunity for you to preach to a certain category of people.
After preaching, is like giving birth. Parents do not leave their children in the hospitals after delivery, they take care of them so when you preach, continue to pray for the souls and follow up on them.
HOW TO COMPEL
1.PRAY FOR THE SOULS
2.VISIT THE SOULS
3.TEACH AND COUNSEL THE SOULS
4.INTERACT WITH THE SOULS.
When there is lack of follow up, the souls tend to die spiritually but when there is effective follow up the souls are touched and affected by the word and the church grows.
Be a talkative for God
Go out beyond your normal circles of life.
GOD WANTS YOU TO BE FRUITFUL. HARVEST SOULS AND BE VALUABLE.
