Christ's 6 Step Method Guarantees Success

Evangelism News

"Christ's method alone will give true success in reaching the people. The Saviour mingled with men as one who desired their good. He showed His sympathy for them, ministered to their needs, and won their confidence. Then He bade them, ‘Follow Me.’” Gospel Workers p. 363

 

Note the following biblical commands for God’s people in the last days in the work of evangelism. (Matthew 24:14; 5:13-16) There is only one way that we may be sure of success and that’s found in the ministry of Jesus. Let’s Study Christ’s Methods of ministry while He was here on this earth:

 

1 - “The Savior mingled…

2 - As one who desired their good

3 - He showed His sympathy

4 - Ministered to their needs, and

5 - Won their confidence

6 - Then he bade them ‘follow me’


Many are waiting to be personally addressed. In the very family, the neighborhood, the town, where we live, there is work for us to do as missionaries for Christ. If we are Christians, this work will be our delight. No sooner is one converted than there is born within him a desire to make known to others what a precious friend he has found in Jesus. The saving and sanctifying truth cannot be shut up in his heart. 

1.    He Mingled – John 4:7-42

 

-          “He sought access to the people by the pathway of their most familiar association.”

 

Some of the ways that we can mingle among people today with the purpose of sharing the gospel with them are as follows:

  • Seek to understand what type of work the people do

  • Seek to understand what hobbies they have

  • Seek to understand what general interest they have

  • Seek to understand what major set-backs they may have had in life

  • Seek to understand marital status

  • Seek to understand how many children they may have and what are their current occupations

  • Seek to understand where they are from (city and state of birth origin)

  • Seek to understand where they currently reside

 

-          “He presented the truth in such a way that ever after it was to His hearers intertwined with their most hallowed recollections and sympathies.”

 

·         Study just how to present the truth to the person as you learn the various points of associations

 

-          “He taught in a way that made them feel the completeness of his identification with their interests.” Ministry of Healing p. 23, 24

 

-          “By method peculiarly His own, He help all who were in sorrow and affliction.”

 

2.    As One Who Desired Their Good – Matthew 9:35

 

The following information was taken from the book “Desire of Ages”. This quotation is full of practical lessons and is worthy of our most careful attention. As we work for fallen humanity let us do as Christ did in the following quotation.

      “Jesus saw in every soul one to whom must be given the call to His kingdom. He reached the hearts of the people by going among them as one who desired their good.

·         He sought them in the public streets,

·         in private houses,

·         on the boats,

·         in the synagogue,

·         by the shores of the lake, and

·         at the marriage feast.

·         He met them at their daily vocations, and

·         manifested an interest in their secular affairs.

·         He carried His instruction into the household, bringing families in their own homes under the influence of His divine presence.

·         His strong personal sympathy helped to win hearts.

·         He often repaired to the mountains for solitary prayer, but this was a preparation for His labor among men in active life.

·         From these seasons He came forth to relieve the sick, to instruct the ignorant, and to break the chains from the captives of Satan.” Desire of Ages p. 151

 

3.    He showed His Sympathy

 

In the same way that Jesus showed His sympathy, so we must show our love and sympathy. Note the following: “Jesus sought an avenue to every heart. By using a variety of illustrations, He not only presented truth in its different phases, but appealed to the different hearers. Their interest was aroused by figures drawn from the surroundings of their daily life. None who listened to the Saviour could feel that they were neglected or forgotten. The humblest, the most sinful, heard in His teaching a voice that spoke to them in sympathy and tenderness.” Christ Object Lesson p. 21

 

“He spoke a word of sympathy here and a word there, as He saw men weary, yet compelled to bear heavy burdens. He shared their burdens, and repeated to them the lessons He had learned from nature, of the love, the kindness, the goodness of God.” Desire of Ages p. 90

 

4.    He Ministered To Their Needs – Matthew 9:36

 

Jesus spent all His life on this earth ministering to the needs of others. Jesus would always strived to please His father, therefore, His aims where high and His motives were pure. In the following statement we can see how He ministered to the needs of others: “Our Lord Jesus Christ came to this world as the unwearied servant of man's necessity. He "took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses," that He might minister to every need of humanity. Matthew 8:17. The burden of disease and wretchedness and sin He came to remove. It was His mission to bring to men complete restoration; He came to give them health and peace and perfection of character.” Ministry of Healing p. 17

 

He went about lifting up the bowed-down and comforting the sorrowful. Wherever He went, He carried blessing.” Gospel Workers p. 45

 

“Never another toiled with such self-consuming zeal for the good of men. Yet His was a life of health. Physically as well as spiritually He was represented by the sacrificial lamb, "without blemish and without spot." 1 Peter 1:19. In body as in soul He was an example of what God designed all humanity to be through obedience to His laws.” Ministry of Healing p. 51

 

“From the homes, the shops, the market places, the inhabitants of the city pressed toward the humble dwelling that sheltered Jesus. The sick were brought upon couches, they came leaning upon staffs, or, supported by friends, they tottered feebly into the Saviour's presence.” Desire of Ages p. 259

 

“His followers are not to feel themselves detached from the perishing world around them. They are a part of the great web of humanity, and heaven looks upon them as brothers to sinners as well as to saints.” Ministry of Healing p. 104

 

5.    Won Their Confidence

 

Winning the confidence of every person was His goal. Jesus treated every person with respect and love. He knew that in order for man to follow His commands He must demonstrate the Divine wisdom and love in every act of His ministry. Only thus would man be willing to receive Him into their life and only thus could there be any hope for the fallen race. “For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope:” Rom 8:24

 

“The fallen must be led to feel that it is not too late for them to be men. Christ honored man with His confidence and thus placed him on his honor. Even those who had fallen the lowest He treated with respect. It was a continual pain to Christ to be brought into contact with enmity, depravity, and impurity; but never did He utter one expression to show that His sensibilities were shocked or His refined tastes offended. Whatever the evil habits, the strong prejudices, or the overbearing passions of human beings, He met them all with pitying tenderness.” Ministry of Healing p. 165

 

6.    He Bade Them ‘Follow Me’

 

Revelation 22:19                     Matthew 11:28-30                  John 3:16; 8:12

 

“The Saviour made each work of healing an occasion for implanting divine principles in the mind and soul. This was the purpose of His work. He imparted earthly blessings, that He might incline the hearts of men to receive the gospel of His grace.” Ministry of Healing p. 20
