READ: Ephesians 4:11-13
…and ye shall be witnesses unto me…
I have discovered that my church members become energized when they get involved in soul winning. Soul winning leads to church growth.
When your church members are engaged in fruitful activities, they have no time for petty quarrels that bring divisions. Pastors must teach their church members that a soul is a soul, and is precious to God. When church members are conscious of the souls that need to be won, their priorities become biblical priorities. Church splits and divisions are avoided. When too many Christians are in one place doing nothing, it often generates hurts, quarrels and wounds.
Some years ago, I had a vision. In this vision, I saw a human heart covered with blood. The heart was beating. God impressed upon my heart that day that the heartcry of Jesus Christ is the harvesting of souls. Jesus did not leave His throne for nothing! He came into this world to save sinners (Luke 19:10). When you win souls, you generate divine support for all that you are doing. As you read the Bible, you will discover that soul winning generates heavenly joy. There is a heavenly response to each soul won for the Lord (Luke 15:7, 10).
Did you know that divine protection is made available for all who take part in doing God’s will? God says He will keep and protect you because you have set your love on Him (Psalm 91:14-16). Be a soul-winner today
