To be able to win a soul is a privilege, a very excellent one at that which brings joy to God The Father every time. I don’t know if you have been there before, but the truth is, there is no greater joy than seeing someone you have spoken to, prayed and cared for, get converted to Christ. Of all the things we can do for God, soul-winning remains the most profitable endeavor. It is the master key that unlocks unimaginable blessings in the kingdom.
Every Christian is either a Soul winner or a Backslider. Which one are you? Remember, God does not call the equipped, He rather equips the called. As Christians, we are all called to share with people what Christ did for humanity, this is our primary duty.
Some of Christ’s last words on earth were;
- “Go ye and make disciples of all nations…”
- “…teach all nations…”
- “Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.”
This goes to show that; sharing our faith with others isn’t just a suggestion, it’s a command. However, our obedience to this command, is what opens us up to a world of tremendous blessings. God even promised us His abiding presence when we obey Him in soul winning.
You need to understand that there is a lot more to winning someone over to The Lord than just caring about them. It entails a deliberateness at pointing them to the cross and showing them the price that Jesus paid for their sins. Soul winning is one of the purposes of our salvation. Without mincing words, we got saved so we can rise for the salvation of others. It is the debt we all owe Jesus as believers and we break His heart, making His sacrifice on the cross of no effect when we fail to win souls for Him.
How much real concern do you have for those who are without God out there? Do you just relax and fail to win the lost to Christ because you do not see or feel the depth of their need?
To win souls successfully, here are some necessary things we need to put in check:
- We must have an absolute assurance of our personal salvation
- We must be living a separated and consistent Christian life that brings God glory
- We must crave the enabling and the soul-winning anointing of the Holy Spirit.
- We cannot afford not to have a passion for every soul we come across and a burden, particularly for those who are on their way to a “Christless” eternity.
So, what are some of the wonders that happen when we win a soul for Christ?
1. You derive a great sense of satisfaction and fulfilment, knowing that God used you to turn souls from death to eternal life.
Do you know that more souls can be won through just one person that got saved? For instance, if Jesus had not won the Samaritan woman at the well; all the other Samaritans who came to Jesus through her testimony would not have come.
2. It is counted to us as faithfulness when we obey Jesus’ commands.
3. We would be satisfied with Joy and honor.
4. With soul-winning, we secure our earthly and eternal rewards.
5. The souls won will begin to enjoy the blessings of redemption.
In soul winning, you may likely be the first link, the last link or a link somewhere in between. The realization of this should fill us with a grave sense of commitment and rid us of all excuses. Friends, you can be just any link in the chain.
