In the short exhortation He gave, he made mention of the following important points

1. You must be born again – John 3:3

The foundation of being passionate for souls is that you must be born again. This is because you cannot give what you don’t have.

2. You need to have a relationship with God

  • Relationship with God is key.
  • It supercedes mere religion or being a church worker or just being nice to people. it’s about a personal relationship with God.
  • It is in the place of personal relationship that God speaks to us.
  • Walking with God is far more important than working for God.
  • John 3:3-8

3. You need to be passionate for God – Mark 12:30

  • You cannot be passionate about souls if you are not passionate about God
  • Everything about you has to revolve around God. You must come to that place where you are “fanatical” about God.

4. Be Passionate about your local assembly

  • Be a brand ambassador of Shouts of Grace Center (your local assembly)
  • Be proud of your church
  • Push your church at people
  • Luke 16:12

5. Be an Intercessor – Genesis 18:20-30

  • Pray for the unreached, pray for those who have not been saved.
  • You have to conquer in the spirit through prayers before you go out for outreach or evangelism.
  • Don’t write off anybody, no one is beyond saving.
  • Jesus died for every man. The blood of Jesus should not waste over anybody so it’s important we intercede regularly for souls.
