The Call is Clear
There was an older man who lived in a remote village far away from the help of medical professionals. His eyes had been taken over with cataracts, causing him to lose all of his vision. He woke every day to darkness, going about his day with many challenges brought on by his blindness. He often imagined what it would be like to live life outside of the darkness. He longed to be able to see. Each night when he lay to sleep he would pray for his sight to return.
Months passed until a group of missionaries would invade his village with kindness and generosity. Learning of the man’s situation, a missionary drove him 100 miles to the nearest mission hospital where a surgery was performed to remove the cataracts from his eyes. The old man who once lived in darkness now saw the light. Although he once was blind, he now could see. His life would forever be changed because of the sacrifice of people like you and me.
The missionaries took the man back to his people and moved on further into the jungle to continue their ministry. After the man returned to his village, he rallied over 50 other people who suffered from the blindness he once knew. He took a long rope and had each one of them hold onto the rope. He then led them 100 miles over the next 22 days to the mission hospital so they could receive the healing he had received. Now that he had seen the light, he did all he could to get his friends out of the darkness so they too could walk in the light.
How much more should you and I who have seen the Light of the world do all we can to lead others to this awesome Light so they may not have to walk in darkness any longer? It would be selfish of us to hoard such an incredible gift. We must give it away. We must tell it often and tell it well so all may know it is possible to walk in the Light. We must do all we can to hold the rope and lead our friends close to Jesus.
When Jesus first walked onto the pages of history to start his earthly ministry, He called men to grab hold of the rope and follow Him. Matthew recorded it this way, “Follow me and I will make you fisher’s of men.” (Matthew 4:19). Jesus knew where he was leading these men. He told them their destination: Those who follow will fish. If Jesus is leading us to fish, then if we are not fishing, are we really following?
We must answer the call. Jesus not only began His earthly ministry with the call to fish, He closed it with the same call. Just before He ascended into heaven He commissioned His followers to, “Go into all the world and make disciples …” (Matthew 28:18).
A study of the Greek, the original language of this commission, tells us to make disciples as we are going through life. The verb in this commission is actually “make.” The verse could read, “As you go through life, make disciples.” Either way, it is clear! Our Lord’s first message and His last message to the church were the same. We must do all we can to hold the rope and lead our friends close to Jesus.
When we get to heaven, we will be able to do everything better. We will be able to worship more freely, fellowship more intimately, serve more passionately, and share more faithfully because we will no longer have the flesh to contend with or Satan’s influence in this world. However, there is only one thing we won’t be able to do in heaven--reach people! When we get to heaven, we will lose our opportunity to hold the rope and get our friends close to Jesus.
Therefore, we must answer the call. We cannot delay. Men and women hang in the balance. The souls of boys and girls are at stake. Our time is short and our work is a matter of heaven and hell. We must get fired up and filled up so we can stand up and speak up for the cause of Christ.
The following pages are designed to encourage and equip you to answer the call with your unique giftedness! God made you special, and He specially made you to reach your world of influence. He has strategically planted you in your network of relationships to reach your friends, family, and associates with the life changing message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. You can do it!
Please prayerfully read, digest, enjoy and live out the Truth in this book. We are praying for you.

Hold the Rope challenged me to be intentional about building relationships with those who do not have a personal relationship with Christ. It also helped me fine tune some of my relational skills. I was very inspired by the stories of life transformation that were shared.

I highly recommend this encouraging read to anyone who wants to make a difference with his/her life!

Very inspirational book about how God changed the lives of these men and started using them to grow the kingdom. Their testimonies and the illustrations they used are powerful. I recommend this book to everyone.The principals shared in the book also helped sharpen my ability to share my faith in Christ with others. Great job!

This book is a must read for the young believer and the seasoned believer alike. It is clearest and most practical book on evangelism that I have read. I am fully convinced that God will use the words contained in this book to challenge and encourage you to hold the rope for many, and help equip you to do so.

This book really challenged me to be more willing, open, and ready when it comes to sharing my faith. After reading this book, I was truly convicted about my obedience to God's command when he commands us to go out and be fisher of men. I had not been a fisher of men, instead I kept letting my fear and pride get in the way. Not only did this book challenge me, but it also equipped me through the encouragement and stories that both Shonn Keels and Jeff Neal share through out the book.

I cannot recommend Hold the Rope more! It is a short, easy read, that is packed with encouragement, scripture, testimonies, and vision. If you take evangelism seriously, take the time to read Hold the Rope!
