outline Victorious Christian Living
(Fruits of Soulwinning) Acts 16:23-34
DR. ED M. LAURENA
I. The fruit of soulwinning is undeniably shown in the sinner’s repentance. A. The humbling of a sinner is brought about by the testimony of an obedient soulwinner for Christ. B. The hunger of a sinner for salvation is because of a great testament (demonstration) of an optimistic soulwinner of Christ. II. The fruit of soulwinning is unquestionably shown in the saint’s rebuilding of lives. A. Soulwinning is God’s great solution in rebuilding broken lives. B. Soulwinning is God’s great satisﬁer of repossessed bruised and battered lives. III. The fruit of soulwinning is unmistakably shown in the soulwinner’s revival. A. Paul and Silas were greatly encouraged by their soulwinning efforts. B. Paul and Silas were gloriously enamored (in love with) by their soulwinning endeavor. IV. The fruit of soulwinning is undisputably shown in the Saviour’s rejoicing. A. The obedience to God of Paul and Silas as soulwinners won the smile of heaven. B. The obedience to God of Paul and Silas as soulwinners caused a wonderful feasting in heaven.
NE of God’s expectations from us, His children, is our fruitfulness. Such is not just an indication, but a strong evidence that He became our heavenly Father. It also shows that His power and Word are creating an impact in our lives. If our principles, attitudes and lifestyle are not in accordance to His precepts and are not manifesting our salvation, then we are not fruitful Christians. Since God expects us to be victorious and fruitful, He gave us His Word and the church to help us accomplish His purpose for us. There can be so many evidences of our fruitfulness. One of the best is our spiritual fruits. These are precious souls that are saved through our obedience to God’s Word. We got saved because somebody obeyed God’s command to win a soul, and I believe that every child of God can fulﬁll that, too. There are persons around us that need the Gospel, maybe relatives, friends, classmates, workmates or even strangers that we can win to the Lord. Church would be a more exciting place if people go there and their lives are changed because we have personally led them to the Lord. To be fruitful is an enjoyable experience but it calls for labor as it is a great responsibility. We thank God for a church that preaches the truth and makes our journey toward heaven more exciting. Let us strive to be fruitful for His glory!
...if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. John 12:32

Soulwinning Quotes by Sis. Beata Agustin
Jesus DIED for sinners cannot we LIVE for them?
God wants to see our salvation-fruitfulness While abiding as branches in His vine of righteousness To overcome pests of barrenness brought by sinfulness… Victoriously prospering by His fellowship’s graciousness!!! God wants to see our sanctification’s fruit-bearing While blooming with our testimony purged by His clearing To blossom in His forgiveness and caring… Victoriously enjoying prayer and supplication’s watering!!! God wants to see our regeneration’s fruit-nurture While growing like a tree to be spiritually mature To increase in our faith thru Bible preaching and study venture… Victoriously pursuing heavenly goals with Christ-like posture!!! God wants to see our justification’s fruit-flourishing While rooting in our conviction by His truth’s pushing To yield trust’s power gained from pride’s smashing… Victoriously worshipping with church-involvement so soul-refreshing!!! God wants to see our transformation’s fruit-ripening While spreading leaves of kindness that to others are beckoning To sow precious Gospel seeds in our soulwinning… Victoriously persevering toward virtuous character-pruning!!! God wants to see our conversion’s fruit-harvest While remaining unshaken, by His mercy, after every stormy test To bud flowers of service along our willingness’ zest… Victoriously participating in discipleship efforts with our very best!!! God wants to see our election’s fruit-preservation While bearing sheaves of commitment for the Great Commission To produce good works in ministry participation… Victoriously raising standard of spirituality in our godly devotion!!!
The man who is aglow with the love of Jesus ﬁnds little need for amusement…he has no time for triﬂing…he is dead earnest to save souls.

AYON SA BIBLIA, IISA LAMANG ANG DAAN PATUNGONG LANGIT!
NG sabi ni Hesus, “Ako ang daan, ang katotohanan, at ang buhay: walang makapupunta sa Ama kundi sa pamamagitan ko.” JUAN 14:6 Wala nang iba pang makapagliligtas sa iyo mula sa impierno. Magtiwala ka kay Hesus ngayon! ROMA 6:23 “Kung ipahahayag ng iyong bibig na si Hesus ay Panginoon at mananam-palataya ka nang buong puso na Siya’y muling binuhay ng Diyos, ikaw ay maliligtas”. ROMA 10:9 1. Aminin mo na ikaw ay isang makasalanan. ROMA 3:10 2. Talikuran mo ang iyong kasalanan (magsisi). GAWA 17:30 3. Manampalataya ka na si Kristo Hesus ay namatay para sa iyo, nalibing at nabuhay namagmuli. ROMA 10:9-10 4. Sa pamamagitan ng panalangin, tanggapin mo si Hesus sa iyong puso bilang iyong Tagapagligtas. ROMA 10:13
MANALANGIN KA NG GANITO Panginoon, ako po ay isang makasalanan at nangangailangan ng kapatawaran. Nanampalataya po ako na nadanak ang dugo ni Hesus at Siya ay namatay sa krus para sa akin. Tinatalikuran ko na po ang aking mga kasalanan. Tinatanggap ko po si Kristo Hesus sa aking puso bilang aking Tagapagligtas. Amen. "Kung tinanggap mo si Hesus bilang iyong Tagapagligtas, ito na ang simula ng iyong bagong buhay kay Kristo." ROMA 8:1 Ngayon: 1. Basahin mo ang iyong Biblia araw-araw upang makilala pa ng lubusan si Kristo Hesus. 2. Makipag-usap ka sa Diyos sa panalangin araw-araw. 3. Manambahan ka sa isang simbahan na pinapangaral si Kristo at ang Biblia ang tanging pamantayan. 4. Ibahagi sa iba si Kristo Hesus.
