The Soul Winner’s Armor
Soul Winning is warfare | Church growth is warfare | The Church is an advancing army.
2 Corinthians 10:3 (NKJV)
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.
When we align with a kingdom you can dominate the earth.
Obedience is empowerment; Your area of disobedience in God is sabotaging your victory.
What is an armor?
An armor is a protective covering of the body.
It could also refer to weapons in a military arsenal for the purpose of protecting or advancing the cause of an army or a kingdom.
Armor simply refers to military equipment used for offensive or defensive purposes.
The instruments of a Soul Winner’s Armory
Luke 11:21-23 (NKJV)
When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own palace, his goods are in peace. But when a stronger than he comes upon him and overcomes him, he takes from him all his armor in which he trusted, and divides his spoils. He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters.
The one who does not bring anybody to the kingdom is an enemy of the kingdom.
As a Christian you are obligated to wining souls.
1. The Truth of the Gospel: The soul Winners knows the truth of the Gospel.
Ephesians 6:14 (NKJV)
Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
1 Peter 1:13 (NKJV)
Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ
Colossians 1:5-7 (NKJV)
because of the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, of which you heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel, which has come to you, as it has also in all the world, and is bringing forth fruit, as it is also among you since the day you heard and knew the grace of God in truth; as you also learned from Epaphras, our dear fellow servant, who is a faithful minister of Christ on your behalf,
The truth of God’s Word is the weapon of the soul winner.
2. The Breastplate of Righteousness
The Soul Winner knows that He is righteous in Christ.
This makes him bold and fearless in the communication of the Gospel.
Nothing restrains people from winning souls like condemnation. Condemnation robs people of confidence.
3. The Preparation of the Gospel of Peace.
A Soul Winner is ever ready. He gives himself to endless preparations to make himself ready to profess or defend his faith anywhere.
1 Peter 3:15 (NKJV)
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear;
Galatians 2:20 (NKJV)
I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
Every believer should be prepared to defend His Faith.
2 Timothy 2:15 (NKJV)
Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
