Attracting The Lost To Christ 2

Attracting the Lost To Christ 2
2Cor 3:2-3
2 You are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read by all men;
3 clearly you are an epistle of Christ, ministered by us, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart.

It is good to preach the Bible to the lost in order to bring them to church. But it is far better to LIVE the Bible among them. What we live makes more sense to the lost world than what we preach.
The world, as we have it today, is not in short supply of preachers; what we lack are men who will live the preaching. Preaching is cheap; every man can preach. Christ did not only preach, He also did what He preached.

The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach Act 1:1

The men of this generation are tired of preaching; they are even skeptical about preaching and preachers. Men now look at preachers with much suspicion. There is an increase battle against preachers. Men no longer trust preachers. They need men who will do more than preaching and show Christ through their lives.

2Cor 2:14-17
14 Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.
15 For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.
16 To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. And who is sufficient for these things?
17 For we are not, as so many, peddling the word of God; but as of sincerity, but as from God, we speak in the sight of God in Christ.

In reality, what God desire us to be and to do in order to attract the lost to His kingdom is seen in verse 14
God … through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.
It is like when the fire of God’s Spirit rests on us and we are confronted with the power of God’s word, we are roasted and a sweet smell emanates from us that will attract everyone around us to Christ.
Unfortunately, because many people who profess Christianity are spoilt, it is a bad odour of rottenness that is emanating from them. This bad odour is doing more damage to the kingdom of God as it drives away people from Christ.
15 For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.
Please note:
• The size and beauty of a lamp makes no sense when its light is off in darkness
• You can only give what you have
• You cannot win the world when you are already engrossed in and enslaved by the world
• If you have character rottenness, rather than for your life to attract men to Christ, it will repel men from Him.
• Expose your inner rottenness to Christ; open up your inner struggles that have killed your light. You cannot help when you also need help. Get your own help first and then you can help others later.
Once the correct odour of purified character begins to emanate from your life, automatically, that life will begin to attract men to where you are in the Kingdom of God.

Today’s Wisdom Nugget
A man’s word cannot produce in others what does not exist in him. If it is not working in you, you cannot make it work in others.
