In this message, Adrian Rogers teaches us how to share Jesus, as instructed in Psalm 126.


Listen closely, as Adrian Rogers shares the importance of sharing Jesus with others is no greater joy but bring us over Jesus all of us have to get jumpstarted it so easy to go to church to study our Bible that our devotions do what we do, but friends do not say Lord Jesus, help me to share these days go to meet the same all the soul winning you ever going to do in this world and this life. Welcome to love the way featuring the dynamic teaching of*Bible teacher in Roger soul is of great worth in God made humans so he made his own image. Therefore, they are endless, timeless, dateless and measureless. Every soul has the potential to be transformed into the likeness of Jesus Christ. We must be committed to sharing our faith because it's the command of our Savior. If you have your Bible turn to Psalm chapter 126 as Adrian Rogers gives the powerful conclusion of learning to share Jesus. Proverbs chapter 11 in verse 30 Bible says he that when a souls is wise not to think of yourselves as why I listen to it again. He that women souls is wise. Why is it so wise to bring a soul to Jesus Christ dictate somebody to know I love the Lord Jesus Christ. Because of the value of the soul.

Remember what Jesus said. Jesus said what to the proper man, if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul.

What should a man give in exchange for his soul.

A soul is so incredibly valuable that Jesus in this passage of Scripture taught that one soul is worth more than the whole world one so so if you want just one soul to Jesus Christ. Think what you've done. What is a social value. While a soul is so valuable. First of all friend because of its desirability. Did you know that the devil desires are so and God desires you so how can we tell when a thing is desirable and not by the price someone will pay for Jesus with his precious blood on the cross died, that a soul might be ready model is a soul desirable, but a soul is so new now. The value of anything is measured not only by its desirability, but its durability soul will last for all eternity friend look appealing today. Something. There was a time when you were not there never will be a time when you will not be your soul will go on endless dateless timeless measureless for all eternity. When the stars have splintered and faded. Your soul will be in existence somewhere.

That's the value of the soul. Jesus spoke of those in hell and the Bible says they are tormented day and night for ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever. The same is true of heaven for all the endless ages soul will be in existence, either in heaven are in hell, desirability, durability, Dante. Another thing about a soul it's possibility in your seat this morning. There are three possible persons is the person you are right now there's a person you could be for evil. If you fail to follow God and there's the person you may be made like into the likeness of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. When you win souls your wives because of the value of a soul, and when you win souls your wise because of the command of the Savior. Jesus has commanded us to make disciples. That's not a suggestion that is not a request. Listen carefully. The Christian who does not share his faith is guilty of high treason against his God is seeing Jesus said, follow me and I will make you become fishers of men. Now if you not fishing for men by what right of logic. Do you have the say that you are following Jesus following, I will make you to become fishers of men. If you are in hut fishing. Following is my logic wrong know you not following Christ not abiding in Christ. Jesus said in John 15. If you abide in me and my word abides in you, you will bring forth much fruit are you bearing fruit are people coming to know the Lord Jesus Christ through your life, then you not abiding in Christ the Lord Jesus. Jesus said if you love me, keep my commandments. Are you keeping his commandments. What right do you have the say that you love the Lord Jesus. If you are not obeying his chief commandment to share your faith, why is winning souls so wise because of the value of a soul because of the command of Christ and because of the reward of the soul winner friend to share your faith in Jesus Christ and is see your brother, your sister, your father, your mother, your friend, your neighbor, your teammate, your schoolmate or whomever come to Christ brings one of the greatest rewards that life can never know that I want to give you four factors here about sharing your faith number one, number one, you must be committed to share your faith look at it again. The Bible says here in Psalm 126 verses five and six.

They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He that goeth forth and weeping, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him. You must be committed to share your faith number two. Not only must you be committed to share your faith. You must be concerned when you share your faith when you share your faith. Notice the Scripture did in Psalm 126 verses five and six.

They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. It is amazing that we have such a lack of tear. I would ask you this question sincerely you say you love the Lord Jesus Christ. You say that Christ is in you do the things that break the heart of Jesus break yours. If you have a broken heart for the unsaved. I suggest that you get a loan away before God until God gives you a passion and compassion. Jesus, when he saw the multitudes was moved with compassion, Dante wanted great problems today is in the words of another dry eyed church and a hell-bent world. Many of us have brothers and sisters and fathers and mothers and babies they died in the state today are going to die and go to help and we claim to know the answer now friend we must share our faith with compassion and with love.

Now number three, number three, you must be consistent as you share your faith. Notice what it says again they that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He that goeth forth, and weep with bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing that idea bearing precious seed is just scattering the seed everywhere you go. What is the seed. The seed is the word of God the Word of God, Jesus and the problem of the sower said the seed is the word we are born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God we have the precious word of God, and everywhere we go we need to be consistent in sharing the same because the seed has power. Years ago I read about a woman who thought that she would somehow protect your body from decay or vandalism or whatever she very rich woman so she had her body made plans in her will to have her body buried in a great concrete vault and then she had steel bands put around that vault so it could not be open and then she wrote had written on that steel vault.

These words seem old for eternity. Don't happen they got a hairline crack in that vault go to the store that I read in the seed fell in at hairline crack and sprouted and began to grow and the pressure that seed and those roots went out crack that involved wide open and a mighty tree grew over that bowl she said it was sealed for eternity but a seed one little see one powerful seed crack that vault wide open and I'm telling you, there are people whose hearts are hardest concrete with steel bands around the word of God is so powerful friend, never, never, never diminish the power of the word of God. Understand what you have in your hand when you have a Bible. It is powerful, the word of God is quick, and powerful, sharper than a two edge sword and we need to know it and I had stored in a heart and soul in the world he that goeth forth, and weep with bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing. You want to harvest well you have to. So to have a harvest.

The Bible says whatever we so we'll read you sell the word of God. You share what Jesus Christ is done for you. You save the pastor, I just I'm just not trying. Healing have to be trying to tell me that have to be trained. A preacher went into the back of a big department store like a like a Walmart or target or whatever you want to buy some fishing tackle and he walked back there always back the back of the store and yes this question is it what is a good vessel. A man's head snapped around and he came up to him, just the strength of the work within the store. Even though the bridge was but a man talk to him about vast floors and hooks and lines and votes and fishing places and bass and bass and fishing lures and lines and hooks and boats and bass can fishing hemlines and hooks and that preacher said when I walked out of the department store that man was still behind me talking about fish talking about vast talking about hooks talking about Laura study my lines talk about boats.

It's obvious to see the man's love one. I don't everything that he went to a course that said, how to share your fishing ability is just an experience he wanted to share. That's the reason we call witnesses lawyers were witnesses. A lawyer argues a case, a witness tells what is seen and heard and very frankly the reason it's on the witnesses them seen or heard. We have to see we are to share the word of God. Now next.

And finally, we would be confident in sharing. You must be confident in sharing your faith. Notice again. Psalm 126 verses five and six. They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He that goeth forth in weeping, bearing precious seed there is the promise now, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

You need to have this confidence now. Not everybody witnesses give you say I dare say most of the people I witness to personally don't get same idol about a thousand. I don't have 500. I probably don't that 250 in baseball parlance, but has some will say when a store goes that the so not all the seed that he so sprouts. That's the reason is lavishly so remember the parable in Mark chapter 4 the Lord Jesus Christ gave the parable of the sower. Some see a fellow by the wayside. The files came and got it. Some fell on stony ground, and it sprang up and then weathered with some fell among the thorns and the thorns choked about, but some fell on good soil you was going to say you just keep sharing your faith. You just keep scattering the sea that God that gives increase, not you. Your job is to scatter the sea. Sometimes you think the most unlikely people are there and they will never get same while back I got a letter from man. He said forgive me for not writing you. He said I want to what happened to me.

He said years ago when you were a pastor in Merritt Island, Florida. I was a long-haired hippie surfer type at a surfboard going down the street on a hot day and you stop and pick me up in your automobile and you share Jesus Christ with me and I was trying to act cool. I was trying to act like I was paying no attention to you and I've kind of pretended to brush you all, but you witness to me you share Jesus Christ with me and you prayed with me and let me out of the car. They said forgive me for not writing you soon and tell you this but I never got your witness out of my heart until I gave my heart to Jesus Christ and God to save me and I'm a preacher of the gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Now I didn't know that, not a fact.

I had to think hard even remember the incident.

After I got the letter because I see you just just throwing out the scene. You don't know when somebody is going to say when and but friend if you go and weep and pray and share and give always do it consistently due to find out that you will have the greatest joy in the world. That is the joy of coming with your sheaves delay in Jesus feet.

The golden ring he would go for the weep with bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing issues with it. Now you tell me pastor. I work it will work when you tell me it will work in what you're telling me how to what you're telling me you're telling me friend that you not trying. You're telling me that you're not doing because I'm telling you that God's word says be the goal for the week with bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing. Bring issues with. Sometimes it takes a long time for your your crop the harvest to come in some years ago in a city. There was a man that I got a burden for he was in the medical field. A doctor and he was one of the sons of Abraham.

I loved him and he love me and he would catch me sometimes preaching own television, he would say you know you your good talker and we would talk and so forth and I began slowly at first and then more strongly to share Jesus with this dear man, we became friends went to the Memphis state bowl games many times together.

He had season tickets had special seats and we would go to ball games together and talk and laugh and enjoy the ballgame. That's by Clement the state was called Memphis state and I began to get bolder and bolder sharing Jesus with this man. Finally, one time he said to me, Adrian, is it every time we together, you told me about Jesus that you know who I am. You know my background. You know my family always be talking to me about Jesus. Can we just have a good time without you talk to me about Jesus. I said well urban yeah we have a good time without my talking about Jesus and I will talk to you about Jesus urban. I want you to know what I'm thinking and I sit this one will be thinking told him about Jesus has a knife I'm not talking to you, you smart enough to know I'm thinking, and so we continue to be friends. Years pass and I continue to pray for this man. He had a serious heart attack. I went to the hospital to see. They said to me, Adrian.

I was at a funeral that you priest a while back. All he said what you said about heaven was wonderful. I said urban I won't be there without you.

He said don't start that again. I said urban here you are on perhaps a death, and you tell me not to start that again you may be just a heartbeat from eternity is set up in bed, put his feet on that little stool I wipe down and looked at me and said all right tell me about it and I told him I said I was prayed, he prayed as Christ enters Park after months and years of love and faithfulness. They prayed and asked Christ in his heart. I went home that hospital at night.

I walked out of the darkness. I took my keys and their and was so dark I didn't know where they landed, how just so happy just that God gave me the privilege to bring just one soul.

Jesus Christ, he they go forth and weep bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with no greater joy than bring a soldier Jesus Christ. But all of us have to get jumpstarted every now and then. It's so easy go to church to study our Bible that our devotions did do what we do and it's all good, but friend would you not say Lord Jesus, help me to share. He that goes for and weep, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him all the soul winning you ever going to do you do in this world and this life. One of these days you go to meet the Savior. One of these days I'm about you going to die. Must I go on empty-handed. Must I meet my Savior so without one soul with which to greet him. Must I empty handed. Go in which a friend began to pray to God to make your soul and when you pray that God would give you a burden for the unsaved and and maybe say Lord lay a particular soul upon my heart, not just the world that's fine. But Lord, some soul upon my heart and help me to share my faith and now friend if sharing faith is so important, certainly receiving Jesus is important receiving what is being shared not share Jesus with you today you not say you can be saved, levitated, that you must acknowledge that you are center and that your sin deserves judgment and punishment and eternal death and hell, but also believe that God still looks you in God immersing allowed his son the Lord Jesus Christ to die upon the cross for you to pay your send it with his precious blood in his gun that the Jesus is proven to be the son of God.

When God raised him from the dead and that he said in his word.

But if you will trust in you saving the Bible says clearly and plainly believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shall be saved.

We believe on him today will you trust in will you right now. Let me guide you in a prayer. Pray this prayer dear God, I know that I miss in.

I know that I'm lost. I need to be saved.

I want to be saying Jesus you died to save me and promise to save me if I would trust you. I do trust her. Jesus come into my heart, forgive my sin save me Jesus pray and mean it, friend.

Save me Jesus save me or Jesus digesting them pray this way. Thank you for doing Jesus.

I receive it by faith I stand on your word that settles again now to make me the person you want me to be. Give me the courage to make it public in your name I pray, amen.
