Wise Counsel

Description

When we witness to people, we need to give them the counsel, the promises of the Word of God.

One of the “C's” of “The Seven Cs of Soul Winning” is counsel—the counsel of God.  By that I mean the Word of God.  It’s important we learn to share the Word with people.

Our testimony is powerful and should be shared.  But even though that may move people and influence people, folks need to know they are anchoring their trust in the promises of God.  Not just in a feeling they have gotten, not just because they feel influenced and moved—even if that is by the Holy Spirit.

Why?  Because feelings change.  Our feelings can go up and down like a roller coaster.  You may be feeling God today, and tomorrow feel like He is nowhere around.  Ever felt that way?

I have had days when I have woken up and not felt God at all, even though I had experienced a good time with Him the night before.  In those times, if I would have gone by my feelings, I would have said, “God, You have deserted me this morning.”

But I know He hasn’t because God’s Word makes it clear that He never leaves us nor forsakes us.  When a person is saved, they need to be anchoring their faith on the promises of God, not on their feelings.

Promises like Romans 10:9-10,

That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.  For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

So when we witness to people, we need to give them the counsel, the promises of the Word of God.
