Developing Intuitive Soul Winners
Journey develops intuitive soul-winners.
One of the great benefits of using the Journey discipleship materials is that there are features built in to the materials to develop people into being able to witness intuitively or in a natural situation.
First of all, Lesson One is an A-Z lesson on the subject of salvation. Once a disciple has gone throughout that lesson they will know more about salvation than the average Christian. The number one reason people are not a good witness is they are afraid that they might mess up the eternal soul of the one they are witnessing to.
That’s why sometimes I will have church members bring someone to me and say “Pastor Honeycutt, here is so-and-so and they are ready to be saved.” They were not confident in the Gospel to share it with them personally.
Well, Lesson One is A-Z on salvation and solves that problem. There is also a tool for Lesson One called ‘The Spiritual Map.’ This is a summary of Lesson One and is presented on one sheet of paper on both sides, and it can help the new, young or any Christian to be able to share the Gospel and stick to the major points and also it illustrates the Gospel. It’s a great tool!
So by a disciple going through Lesson One they are ready to witness. What is meant by “Intuitively” is throughout the Journey lessons there are over 45 sections called “The Water Cooler Scenarios” or Water Cooler Questions. These are the top 40 questions that people in America are asking every day. Training them to answer those questions is not to get them specifically to answer it but that they would use the questions to be able to share the Gospel with that person.
For example, one of the first ones is “How could a loving God let so many people die in a tsunami or a terrorist attack?" The suggested answer for that is to help to share the Gospel, not necessarily try to answer it. So when asked about evolution, or asked about why people die of cancer or anything else in the those top 40 questions, we help the disciple and discipler to know how to intuitively answer those questions and turn the answer to giving the Gospel.
This is what the Bible says on how to be ready to give an answer. This is how intuitive, evangelizing sou-winners can be developed in your ministry by using the Journey Disicpleship Lessons.
