Win Win Win

“Every Christian is either a missionary or an imposter.” Charles Spurgeon

I’m presently reading an amazing book written by a Christian evangelist named Mark Cahill. For those of yo who don’t know him, I strongly suggest that you check out the link to his website on the right side of the screen. This man has an amazing and almost incomparable passion for sharing the gospel that he does it with virtually every single person he meets.  Whenever he travels and stays in a hotel, he makes sure that the woman at the desk taking all the phone calls hears the wonderful message of Jesus. He attends gay parades and walks the midnight crime-and-lust filled streets regularly talking to the lost men and women whom most Christians overlook and ignore. Mark Cahill has ministered to a number of celebrities and athletes, including Tiger Woods and Denzel Washington.

His book that I’m reading, “One Thing You Can’t Do in Heaven” is all about how Christians won’t get the chance to witness to non-believers in heaven. We must therefore take every chance we get here on earth and spread the good news quickly because time is running short.

The second chapter of the book talks about the results of Christians sharing their faith. This chapter really opened my eyes to a reality which I would like to share with yo right now.

There are ultimately three possible outcomes when we share our faith with someone:

  1. He understands the gospel and accepts Christ as his treasure and is saved,
  2. He understands the gospel but is not ready to make a decision, a seed is planted in his heart, or
  3. He completely rejects Christ.

The latter of the three is obviously the worst case scenario, but when you consider the other two outcomes, they do give quite a fair amount of glory to God, if the gospel is explained correctly. Therefore, God is glorified 66% of the time when we evangelize.

Luke 6:22-23 “Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake. Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in Heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.”

Wait a second! Isn’t it a losing situation when unbelievers reject the gospel that you are trying to share with them? This verse says otherwise. In fact, whenever someone hates you for what you believe and for sharing your beliefs, you store up rewards in Heaven. Isn’t that so wonderful?

So what was a 66% win 33% loss becomes 100% win. In every outcome, whether they get saved, whether they leave you with a seed in their hearts or whether they reject you and your beliefs, it is always a win for Christ’s kingdom. Win, win, win!

So why are we so afraid to share our faith? Do we have an excuse? Not at all, in fact we have every reason to share our faith and if we don’t, we are selfish and we truly do not care for the lost.

So go out in the world of sin and preach the gospel with love and gentleness (Colossians 4:2-6) so that transgressors might turn to Christ in all his glory.

    We can’t preach Christ if we aren’t controlled by a passion for Christ. And, we won’t ever preach Him and Him crucified because we will never put our arms around the gospel of Jesus Christ but we will chew upon it throughout all eternity.

    “May the Lamb that was slain receive the reward of His suffering!”

    Jesus Christ said: “He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.” Matthew 10:39 KJV.

    Can you say, “I AM A LOSER”?
    “For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.” -Luke 9:24
