Harvest - A Priority

Pastor, here are 10 ways to make your altar invitation stronger:
  1. Truly believe in the power of the gospel to change lives.
  2. Recognize that not everyone is saved (including some people who have been members of your church for years).
  3. Hate sin. Explain repentance. Preach Christ.
  4. Don’t promise a better life. Promise a better eternity and the Holy Spirit to lead you through this life.
  5. Preach as if this is someone’s only chance to hear about Christ. It might be.
  6. Present the gospel in every message.
  7. Call for a decision.
  8. Trust that the Holy Spirit has already been at work in someone’s life.
  9. Believe people will be saved.
  10. Worship God when they are.
