A Winning Lifestyle – Johannes Amritzer

Johannes Amritzer spoke tonight at our Leader’s Roundtable for our MCM churches.  It was a powerful night!  Here’s the notes:

  1. Never stop praying (‘Devote yourselves to prayer…’ Col. 4:2a)
    • ‘Salvation is not just a logical decision, it is a miracle.’ – The gospel is the power of God…
    • When we pray, we are not changing God, but we are being changed.
    • Also, when we pray we change the spiritual atmosphere.
    • The gospel without spiritual warfare and prayer is just intellectual.
  2. Expect the Best/Positive (‘…being watchful and thankful.’ Col. 4:2b)
    • Always expect something.
    • The Holy Spirit wants to lead you to good waters.
  3. Open Doors (‘And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ.’ Col. 4:3a)
    • God is going to open doors for you and you have to expect Him to open up doors.
    • This is the great thing with partnerships.  We can walk through each others’ open doors.
  4. Right Language (‘…that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should.’ Col. 4:4)
    • Don’t speak the church language.  If you can help it, don’t even start speaking the church language.
  5. Proper Conduct/Behavior (‘Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders…’ Col. 4:5a)
    • Humor is a great key.  If you’re a happy Christian, that will solve a lot for you.
    • Be someone that people love to be around.  That people aren’t avoiding you.
  6. Don’t Miss Your Chance (‘…make the most of every opportunity.’ Col. 4:5b)
    • The Holy Spirit plays on the same team as you.
    • When the Holy Spirit passes you the ball, don’t blow it!
    • This isn’t your team or your game.  You’re not in this by yourself.
  7. Spice Up Your Speech (‘Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.’ Col. 4:6)
    • If we could quit being so religious all the time and give some answers that people can actually understand, things would be better.
    • We must combine grace with salt.
