SCRIPTURE: The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When you win souls, you touch the Heart of God.
As children of God, it is our obligation to win souls for the Kingdom of God. Jesus died on the Cross of Calvary so that lost souls can be saved. And for souls to be saved, we must reach out to them (Romans 10:14).
1 Corinthians 9:16 says,
For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!
Necessity is therefore, laid on every child of God to win souls.
Now, the question is: why is it necessary to win souls? Let me give you one reason:
Soul Winning is the Heartbeat of God.
One reason we must win souls is that soul winning is the Heartbeat of God. To go for souls is to engage in an activity that touches the Heart of God.
2 Peter 3:9 says,
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
When you win souls, you touch the Heart of God. That is why it is not possible for God to ignore a soul winner. God paid a very high price for the salvation of the souls of men. That price was the offering of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, on the Cross of Calvary (John 3:16).
Beloved, when you touch the Heart of God by winning souls, God will touch your life by meeting your needs.
Remember this: When you win souls, you touch the Heart of God.
1. Make soul winning a priority in life.
2. Make up your mind to see to the establishment and discipleship of the souls you win for God.
PRAYER: Lord, help me to do what pleases You. I receive the grace to win souls and establish them, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
