Topic:Open Doors – God’s Avenue For Saving Lost Souls – from Seeds of Destiny Devotional by Dr. Pastor Paul Enenche | Date: Monday, 09 July 2018.
SCRIPTURE: Furthermore, when I came to Troas to preach Christ’s gospel, and a door was opened unto me of the Lord. 2 Corinthians 2:12
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When God wants to save people, He opens the door of Ministry and kingdom missions.
In the beginning, God created man in His Image, placed him in the Garden of Eden and entrusted him with authority and dominion to rule the earth. However, the devil, having fallen from heaven, became jealous of man and made man to lose his place in God through sin.
But God in His infinite mercy sent Jesus, His only begotten Son to die for our sins in order to restore man to God. So, whoever believes in Jesus Christ should not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16).
This is possible by the preaching of the gospel of Christ. The preaching of the gospel is the Power of God unto salvation (Romans 1:16). When God wants to save people, He opens the door of Ministry and Kingdom missions.
The door of Ministry and Kingdom missions refers to the opportunities for soul winning, rescue of souls and invasion of territories for God. It is the door of impact, territorial takeover and Kingdom expansion. The people whose hearts were previously hardened and lands that were previously closed would begin to open up; opportunities to impact lives for God would abound when this door opens.
The opening of this door gives you access to impact your generation, community, organization or even your family for God.
The opening of this door is marked by the influx of souls into the kingdom of God.
Beloved, make up your mind to impact lives for God in your generation by the power of the gospel.
Remember this: When God wants to save people, He opens the door of Ministry and kingdom missions.
- Be actively involved in the soul winning mandate; set a vision of wining at least a soul per week.
- Distribute evangelism materials like tracts, Seeds of Destiny Devotional, books and CDs to impact lives positively for God.
PRAYER: O Lord, I receive the grace to be actively involved in the Kingdom mission of winning souls. Help me to be consistent, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
