Are you a soul winner?
The Bible says “The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.” Proverbs 11:30. He that winneth soul is wise. The book of Daniel 12:3 tells us the reward of the wise. Its says “And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.” This means the wise (soul winners) will have more glory (shine as the brightness of firmament and stars forever).
You have a Ministry
“… God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation” (2 Corinthians 5:19). Every Christian has been called to carry out this great ministry of reconciliation. God has assigned the preaching of the Gospel to all those born again. The religious mind only thinks the Pastors Should preach the gospel..No as long as you are born again God enlist you to win souls.
Power to win souls
Acts 1:8 Says.. “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” The power you receive is to make you a witness to unbelievers and every Christian receives this power.
Your work on earth will follow you
When you win a soul..God records in your account and when you die in the LORD, it will follow you to heaven and God will reward you. “And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.” Revelation 14:13.
Each will give an account
“So then each of us will give an account of himself to God.” Romans 14:12. Knowing that we shall all give an account..let us work hard that we may have confidence before the LORD and show him what we have done. Time is running out to such an extent the Bible tells us to redeem time we have wasted doing our own things…Ephesians 5:16.
Activate POWER by PRAYER
Every Christian who has received the Holy Spirit has received POWER ..Acts 1:8. But this power is resident power. You need to activate it (get it in the motion) by maintaining a prayer life. We are to be continually be filled with power because as we speak Gods word to people power is released and we must continually pray/fellowship with God. The soul winner’s prayer is different, his/her concerns is about souls. Praying for an opportunity to win souls. Paul says in Colossians 4:3 “pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison.” Prayer is key to soul winning because you are dealing with people bound by Satan.
How do you start
Study God’s word, pray and depend on the Holy Spirit. God says..”open your mouth wide and i will fill it.” Psalms 81:10. Luke 12:12 says “…for the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.” Having a few scripture vital to salvation, depend on the holy spirit. He will take over and bring conviction to the sinner who will give his life to Jesus. God bless you.
