“Guard your heart with all diligence,
for from it flow the issues of life.”
Worthy causes often start in boiling hearts. The right
motive often produces right behavior. As we approach
our time with David Burton this October, I hope our
people will develop a heart for outreach to win our
community for Christ. Below I outline seven worthy
1. The Father loves the lost people and wants to
transition from being their Judge to being their
Father in Christ. This is why He gave His only Son
for the world (John 3:16).
2. Jesus came to the world to seek and save it. He
did outreach and offered the gospel and we
should, too (Luke 19:10).
3. The Holy Spirit is now convicting and crossexamining
every lost person I see each day to
bring lost people to Jesus (John 16:8—11).
4. Jesus has all authority in heaven and earth and
commands me to share the gospel with the world
5. Lost people will perish forever if they do not turn
to Christ in repentance and faith (Luke 13:3).
6. I will stand before God and give an account of
what I did with my life, the gospel, and my
opportunities with lost people, and knowing this
fear I persuade others (2 Cor 5:10—11).
7. When I share the gospel, God works because
“faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word
of Christ” (Rom 10:17).
Our ministerial staff and I attempt to review these
biblical motivations every day. They change the way I view others and my encounters with them. They provide me
impetus to make our time with David Burton a great success among lost people. Will you join our staff and review
these each day in October?
You can make our time with David Burton a time of salvation for lost people and it is as easy as ABC.
A: Attend all the services on Sunday October 22 at 9:15, 10:30, and 6:00 p.m.
B: Bombard heaven with prayers for lost people.
C: Collect all the people by using Invite Cards (near exits of the worship center) and contacting all Sunday School
class members the week of October 15—21.
