For the next few days, the devotional I use (Open Heavens), its author – Pastor E.A Adeboye, is teaching on evangelism and I’ll share a few things that stand out to me.
“No man can enter into a strong mans house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house. ” Mark 3:27
Evangelism is a spiritual battle. The devil is the strong man referred to in the passage above. If you would rescue the sinner out of the strong mans bondage, you must first bind him – bind the demons that have kept that fellow or community in captivity first, then frustrate all their activities and plans to keep the person or community captive for life. That way, the coast would be clear for you to rescue them from the hands of the devil.
The Holy Spirit is the One who convicts sinners; if you would win souls, then you must be filled with Him.
