The Soul Winning Course Saved His Life: A Favorite Soul Winning Experience From Jack Hyles

2019-01-28T15:30:47-04:00

A number of years ago I taught my little course on soul winning at the Trinity Baptist Church of Jacksonville, Florida. After the course, one of the men was driving back to his home town to get his wife and return to the evening service. He stopped and offered a ride to a hitchhiker on the way and proceeded to use the soul-winning method of the "Roman Road" on the hitchhiker. After explaining the wonderful story of salvation, he led the man to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. It was one of those unusual experiences when Heaven bends [...]

She Had Never Heard Of Adam And Eve: A Favorite Soul winning Experience from Jack Hyles

2018-12-10T22:40:12-04:00

A few days ago a lady in our area whom I had won to Christ died. Upon hearing of her death, I relived the experience of her salvation. One Friday afternoon I went to her home and found immediately that she was a Catholic and had been reared near Rome, Italy. (She was in her mid-fifties when she died.) After chatting with her for a while, I brought up the subject of her salvation only to find that she knew absolutely nothing about the Bible. So I started from Adam and Eve and explained salvation's story to her in [...]

Saved In The Bathtub: A Favorite Soul winning Experience from Jack Hyles

2018-12-10T22:40:58-04:00

A few years ago I was in a Bible Conference in Houston, Texas. After a morning service, I returned to my room at one of the large motels on the north side of Houston. To my surprise, the door to my room was open and I heard singing coming from the bathroom. After checking the room number with my key, I realized I was in the right room. Perhaps someone else was in the wrong room. I hollered through the door, inquiring who was there, only to find it was the maid cleaning out the bathtub. She was actually [...]

I Won The Contractor: A Favorite Soul winning Experience from Jack Hyles

2018-12-10T22:41:25-04:00

"I would like to talk with you concerning the contract for another building." These words I spoke to Mr. R. D. Estes upon the completion of a new auditorium for a pastorate in Texas. The building had not yet been dedicated, and I was handing him the final check when I made the aforementioned statement. He was somewhat startled. He realized that our church had gone in debt to construct the auditorium and was amazed that we would be interested in a contract for another building so soon. "Where will this new building be built?" he asked. "Oh," I [...]

The Dog Started The Family Altar: A Favorite Soul winning Experience from Jack Hyles

2018-12-10T22:42:47-04:00

A few years ago during the Christmas season, I went to a home on a Friday afternoon. The husband was there alone. He was so pleased to see me and pleaded with me to come back in the evening as he and his wife were having domestic problems. That evening I did return and led them both to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. It was a beautiful sight. We knelt on the sofa beside a beautiful Christmas tree, and each of them was sweetly converted. I knelt between them. Our heads were bowed, our eyes were closed, and [...]

I’LL GIVE TWO ‘FIFTHS: A Favorite Soul winning Experience from Jack Hyles

2018-12-10T22:43:13-04:00

"Okay, I'll go to church with you tonight-but just to keep you from nagging," Leon said. He did come to church; he heard the message on the subject, "The Funeral of the Old Man." He was a drunkard. He was a big, barrel-chested, broad-shouldered, contractor-but a drunkard. I went back during the invitation and asked him if he would be saved. "I don't know what being saved means," he replied, "but I sure would like to have a funeral for my 'old man.'" He came down the aisle, buried the "old man," and became a new creature in Christ. [...]

He Drank A Toast To Jesus: Jack Hyles Favorite Soulwinning Experiences

2018-12-10T22:42:11-04:00

"I drink a toast to your Jesus!" These blasphemous words were said by probably the meanest man I ever saw converted. When I told him about Christ, he opened a can of beer, toasted it to Jesus, and asked me to leave. He cursed as I walked to the car. However, he looked so much like my father, I could not get my mind off of him. Again and again I went to his home; again and again, I was asked to leave. Word came that he was in the hospital. I went to the hospital to see him. [...]

Soulwinning Among Poor Children: Jack Hyles’ Favorite Soulwinning Experiences

2018-10-09T10:14:29-04:00

Soul winning never ceases to bring blessings. A soul won many years ago will give dividends for eternity. Not long ago I was preaching in a city in Florida and exhorting the people to go out into the highways and hedges and bring in the poor as well as the rich. I spoke especially about little children and the importance of reaching those for whom no one else cares. After the service, a pastor introduced himself to me and then turned to introduce his lovely wife. As l shook her hand she said, "I think you know me. I [...]

There’s Never A Wrong House When Soulwinning!

2018-10-19T20:57:46-04:00

I was visiting a Mrs. Turner on Indiana Street. Now, Indiana Street is only one block from Truman Street. Since the words "Turner" and "Truman" are a lot alike, I accidentally went to Truman Street instead of Indiana Street. I came to the right number, however, knocked on the door, and asked if Mrs. Turner were in. "No," she said, "My name is McDowell." I said, "This is Indiana Street, isn't it?" She said, "No, this is Truman Street," and then I realized that I had the right number but the wrong street. I turned to walk away when [...]

A Son’s Prayer For His Dad

2018-10-19T20:57:46-04:00

I thank God for every conversion and certainly minimize none, but occasionally there comes across our path an unusual experience of salvation that makes us rejoice more than usual. In our church, we have a fine lady with three wonderful children who for years prayed for their unsaved husband and dad. Our church prayed, and my own heart was burdened with his salvation. Again and again, we witnessed to him, but to no avail. Recently his son was preparing to go to Tennessee Temple College, and it came to the last week of his life at home with his [...]
