Express Your Faith For Soul-Winning
“All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins agains
T O THE BIBLE 2 C orinthians 5:19 NIV
There’s no better way to express your love for Jesus Christ than to win souls for Him, the souls for whom He died. He gave His life for all people, and if you were the only one that needed salvation, He would still have come to die for you. He didn’t do it because we were many; He did it because we were valuable to God. Therefore, soul-winning is worth everything. Practise it. It’s the most important thing on earth.
It’s something for which you must express your faith. You can say, “In the Name of Jesus, I claim ten souls for Jesus Christ today, by the power of the Holy Spirit!” And after making that declaration of faith, you go out to reach your world in evangelism. Faith isn’t all about getting something for yourself. Let your faith work in reaching people for Christ; the growth you’d experience, both in your personal life and in the harvest of souls, will be astounding.
In John 5:19 (paraphrased), Jesus said, “I do what I see my Father do.” Copy the Master. He was the greatest soulwinner, the master soul-winner. As you win souls, you carry out His passion, and the glory of His Kingdom is manifested in your life in an extraordinary way. This is how you shine in the Kingdom.
Recall what Jesus said about John the Baptist: “He was a burning and a shining light…” (John 5:35 KJV). What a testimony! You have to be a burning and a shining light, and there’s no other way than soul-winning, impacting lives with the Gospel: “Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever” (Daniel 12:3). This is what you’ve got to do because it’s your life, calling, and responsibility.
John 4:34; Proverbs 11:30; Mark 16:15
With the light of the glorious Gospel of Christ which I’ve received, I dispel the darkness in the hearts of the unconverted, impacting them with the message of eternal life, and establishing them in righteousness. Through me, the knowledge of Christ spreads everywhere, and my triumphs of faith effuse the exquisite fragrance of God’s glory in every place, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
