The Greatest Need. The greatest need today is for the church to get back to its mission and "seek and save the lost" Luke 1. God could have done anything he wanted with His Son but He made Him a soul-winner. The first twelve men Christ chose were soul winners except Judas -- and he was a traitor to the cause. The church has many capable workers in the huddle but is in desperate need of personal workers out in the field Luke Christ needs you.
He is the head but you are His hands and feet Ephesians 1 1. He can't get His work done unless you do.

Let's not betray that coveted trust He gives us to teach the lost Hebrews We are to be the light and salt of the world Matthew 1. Salt both seasons and preserves. We need personal contact. How can we preserve anything sitting on a shelf? What we all need is more genuine concern for the lost. Paul's heart had "great grief and unceasing sorrow" over those lost Romans Illustration -- If everyone had a terminal illness and you found the cure, would you share it or keep it to yourself? Walk down the street in your neighborhood and look at the houses.
How many are lost Jude 22; Matthew ?
The Need is fulfilled through the Lord's Plan of Evangelism. The early church carried out the great commission in 29 years. Jesus spoke Mark in A. Paul wrote Colossians in A. The Lord's plan is most effective. Obviously, the Lord adds people to His church as they are saved Acts ; 47 , but in regards to church growth as those who are converted teach others, who teach others, who teach others, etc. If just one individual converted five per year, and after a year each of his converts did the same, at the end of the second year there would be 25, the third , the fourth , the fifth 3,, the sixth 15,, and so on until the fourteenth year when six billion people would be reached.
Since the whole world has less than 5 Billion people, in just 14 years the whole world would be Christian. If every member of the church converted just one a year, and he or she in turn converted just one, in just 18 years the whole world could be converted. Teaching is the second half of Christianity 2. Evangelism is not complete until the evangelized become the evangelist II Timothy This is only a theoretical example, Matthew shows that since not all have honest hearts, in actuality many will reject the gospel message.
However, if more had an opportunity to hear, no doubt countless more would respond. Red and yellow black and white, they are all precious in His sight. We are to teach every creature Matthew Opportunities are unlimited John The Great Commission did not limit who we were to teach.
When Jesus said "the fields are white unto the harvest," he was not referring to white and middle class.

It is a direct command Matthew We'd never dream of forsaking the Lord's Supper or lying or stealing, yet we think very little of disregarding our Savior's last words to go teach. It is not an optional thing See Hebrews The Great Commission stipulates all who hear and believe are to be baptized and then tell others. Though originally given the twelve this is certainly implied. Let's not make the great commission, the great omission Acts 1.
Christ said "go" not "invite". Remember, all of us, male and female, are priests. We are part of a "royal priesthood. What did the priest do? They studied the law and taught blessed the people. If we are to be more than priests in name only, we must study God's word, and bless people with the gospel so they can receive the forgiveness of their sins. The very reason why the Lord does not take us right away once we come to Him is so that once we have been called out, we can go back into the world and call others out as well.
It is necessary for self-preservation John Like the barren fig tree we must produce or be cut down Luke 1. Personal evangelism is one of the best means of personal growth. If we don't teach their blood is on our heads Acts , Ezekiel 1. People won't listen? Maybe so, but at least you are no longer responsible. Juster Th. Jonathan Ferguson. Charles Spurgeon.
