Wise Counsel

The sixth C of The Seven Cs of Soul Winning is Counsel - the counsel of God. By that I mean the Word of God. It's important we learn to share the Word with people.

Our testimony is powerful and should be shared. But even though that may move people and influence people, folks need to know they are anchoring their trust in the promises of God. Not just in a feeling they have gotten, not just because they feel influenced and moved—even if that is by the Holy Spirit.

Why? Because feelings change. Our feelings can go up and down like a rollercoaster. You may be feeling God today, and tomorrow feel like He is nowhere around. Ever felt that way?

I have had days when I have woken up and not felt God at all, even though I had experienced a good time with Him the night before. In those times, if I would have gone by my feelings, I would have said, "God, You have deserted me this morning."

But I know He hasn't because God's Word makes it clear that He never leaves us nor forsakes us. When a person is saved, they need to be anchoring their faith on the promises of God, not on their feelings.

Promises like Romans 10:9-10, That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

So when we witness to people, we need to give them the counsel, the promises of the Word of God.

By Bayless Conley

For Your Information

     Miracles is the name of the series that we are going through. Yesterday, we looked at John 5 and saw Jesus' miracle of healing the lame man beside the pool in Bethesda. We saw how we are all spiritually handicapped. We dealt with the aspect that we doubt God's ability to do the miracles, because we are so focused on our issues. Then we finished with the principle from God's word that Obedience Precedes the Miraculous. That message is on our (or soon will be) website just under the calendar as well as on iTunes.
     Next week we continue the series with a message about Jesus Raising Lazarus From The Dead from John 11. Jesus turned water to wine, calmed a storm, made a blind man see, a crippled man walk again. So why do we sometimes lack the faith to believe that God can calm the storms in our own lives? What would it take for you to believe that the impossible is possible? A miracle? Join us this Sunday at 11 AM as we continue learning about different miracles, and how that applies to us today.

      July 20 - Quarterly Business Meeting at 7:30 PM
