Do You Want To Win Your Lost Friends To Christ?

Then tell them how Christ is the answer to their four greatest needs or concerns:

 

GUILT

 

I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no moreIf you, O LORD, kept a record of sins, O Lord, who could stand? But with you there is forgiveness; therefore you are feared.” (Isaiah 43:25; Psalm 130:3, 4)

 

I am reminded of God’s grace when I reflect upon the fact that the three men whom God most used in the Scriptures were murderers: Moses, David, and Paul.

 

LONELINESS

 

[God] satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagles[He is] a father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling” (Psalm 103:5; 68:5)

 

Jesus: “O Jerusalem, Jerusalemhow often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing.” (Matthew 23:37)

 

EMPTINESS

 

“‘Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a mans life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.‘” (Luke 12:15)

 

But you would be fed with the finest of wheat; with honey from the rock I would satisfy youI have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” (Psalm 81:16; John 10:10)

 

THE FEAR OF DEATH

 

By his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil— and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.” (Hebrews 2:14, 15)

 

God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the

 

Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. (1 John 5:11-13)

 

My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Fathers hand.” (John 10:27-29)
