“For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?” Matt 10:26
When one ponders upon the above Scripture, it becomes an undeniable fact that the issue of eternal life cannot but become important than any other issues of human life like education, politics, economics, sports, career or modernization. This is simply because these earthly issues of a lifetime only last more or less 100 years and they cease to become an issue as soon as one dies. Therefore, attaining salvation of souls is the greatest issue of our lives. Those who seek the final answer to the problem of thereafter life are wise, for without knowing the final direction of life, no one can find the way to the true life.
Game changer is an event or reasoning that effects a significant shift in the manner or doing or thinking of something. The Bible is full of game changing events and knowledge of God that has the power to regenerate a dead soul. The reason we need a game changer is because people living in this world are being deceived by Satan in many different ways. Jesus Who is the Master game changer teaches us on various events on how to receive perfect remission of sin and to attain everlasting life.
As agents of the Master game changer we must be pro-active and relentlessly pursue to preach, teach and evangelize human souls. Our persistence and commitment to serve the Gospel of the water and Spirit could release people from the bondage of ignorance of salvation. Preaching this Gospel could lead us to challenges, opposition and persecution. We must emulate Jesus’ game changing approaches to break mental barriers and obstacles to enlighten people of their spiritual condition. There is a necessity to develop a clear purpose in our pursuit to minister the Gospel to the hearts and minds of those who are blinded by Satan.
Personally, I adopt five steps to effect a game changer using the acronym ‘SMART’ to preach the Gospel of the water and Spirit.
Simplicity – Learn to administer the Gospel in simple terms and do not get entangled in complexities. Do not spend valuable time majoring in the minors.
Meaningful – Learn to be purpose driven, meet a need, solve a problem and leave an indelible mark in their lives.
Actionable – Learn to be doers. All knowledge attained should be applied to win souls. Faith without action is dead.
Relational – Learn to enhance, extend and leverage existing relationship and serve to create new ones. Ministry boils down to people.
Transformational – Learn to inspire, empower and create desire.
