People Need the Lord! How Will they Meet?

God knew that and so He sent Jesus to rescue all humanity from their sins. Jesus then sent us to continue what He started: the evangelization of the world.

This message gives you strong biblical evidence that helping people make it to heaven is one of the two main reasons God still keeps His beloved children on earth after we get saved.

  4. 4. Jesus Came to Meet All These Needs! “I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” ~Jesus~ John 10:10 THE NEEDS OF PEOPLE Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs 4
  5. 5. THE GREATEST NEEDTHEY HAVE "He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” John 3:36 5

  7. 7. GOD PURSUES PEOPLE God sent Jesus Jesus sends us God has no other plan We cannot ignore this and be a faithful follower of Jesus 7
  8. 8. TWO MAIN REASONS WE LIVE 1. To become more like Jesus In character (Fruit), power (Gifts) and purpose (Help lost get saved) “Be conformed to the image of his Son…” Romans 8:29 “…must live as Jesus did” 1 John 2:6 “You should follow in His footsteps.” 1 Peter 2:21 “Be imitators of God..” Eph. 5:1-2 8
  9. 9. TWO MAIN REASONS WE LIVE 2. To help others make it to heaven Via deeds and words working together with different gifts Live with a passionate, life-long urgency to somehow influence people to make it to heaven— just like Jesus did. 9
  10. 10. Earth as It Really Is The Broad Way to Eternal Fire & Many Enter Matt 7:13 Jesus:The Narrow Way to Heaven“The whole world is under the control of the evil one.” 1John 5:19 Prayer Witness in Deeds & Words 10
  11. 11. SATANSTWO GREATEST FEARS Christians will will partner with God in fervent pray, especially in groups especially to reach the lost. Christians will partner with the Holy Spirit to reveal Jesus to others in deeds and words 11
  12. 12. PARTNERING WITH GOD IN PRAYER ESPECIALLY IN GROUPS He won’t if we don’t. He is waiting on us. He wants partners! “Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do…” John 14:13 “Pray to the Lord of the harvest so that He will send…” Jesus promises to be IN groups meeting in His Name 12
  13. 13. PARTNERING WITH GOD TO HELP OTHERS MAKE ITTO HEAVEN “You are the salt of the earth…You are the light of the world…let your light shine before others…” Matt. 5: 13-16 “You shall be My witnesses…” Acts 1:8 “Go and make disciples of all nations…” Matt 28:19 “So we are Christ's ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us.” 2 Cor. 5:20 “He who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save his soul from death…” James 5:20 13
  14. 14. TWOTHINGS MOST CHURCHES LACK Lot’s of people praying fervently together for Kingdom goals Many members sharing their faith outside the church building in deeds and in words What a coincidence! Satan’s greatest fears are two of the church’s greatest weaknesses. 14
  15. 15. ONE BODY, MANY GIFTS, ONE PURPOSE His Purpose Must be Our Purpose if He is Our Master 15
  16. 16. ONE BODY, MANY GIFTS, ONE PURPOSE Use your spiritual gift to build up the Body so we all can partner with Jesus to bring in the harvest. Different gifts but one Body seeking to save the lost with Jesus! Helps, administration, teaching, intercession, healing, speaking… Let God show you your part in helping people make it to heaven 16
  17. 17. LET GOD USEYOU! Repent of apathy for why Jesus came to earth: SALVATION FOR SINNERS Refuse to live for the things of this world! “Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them.” 1 John 2:15 As God to give you His love for lost people you meet Pray for the lost around you. Put some lost people on your regular prayer list Intentionally seek them out to interact with them 17
  18. 18. PEOPLE WANT THE LORD "This is what the LORD of Heaven's Armies says: In those days ten men from different nations and languages of the world will clutch at the sleeve of one Jew.And they will say, 'Please let us walk with you, for we have heard that God is with you.’’ Zech. 8:23 18
  19. 19. LORD,WHAT DOYOU WANT? First, agree to obey what He says Then, listen for His voice Write it down Do it! Enjoy your partnership with God! 19
