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: The death of a sinner is an irreplaceable, irrecoverable, irreversible eternal loss.
It has been confirmed from Scriptures that one assignment God gave every believer is the assignment of soul winning.
Mark 16:15-16 says,
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
Now, one reason why we must win souls is that the loss of a soul is an irreplaceable, irrecoverable and irreversible loss, both to God and to mankind. It is an eternal loss to God anytime a sinner dies.
The Scripture gives us an account of the conversation between Abraham and the rich man. The rich man died and went to hell while Lazarus also died and went to Abraham’s bosom in Heaven. When the rich man saw the reality of hell, he pleaded with Abraham to send Lazarus to preach to his brothers on earth so they didn’t end up in hell like him (Luke 16:19-31).
The meaning is, the death of a sinner is an irrecoverable eternal loss. When a man dies, mercy expires. Mercy exists as long as time exists. When people close their eyes in death and they are found on the other side of eternity, mercy has expired. Hence, it is very important for us to go out for souls to win them for the Lord. So, make up your mind to rescue the lost for God.
Remember this: The death of a sinner is an irreplaceable, irrecoverable, irreversible eternal loss.
1. Refuse to watch sinners perish in their sins; determine to go for souls.
2. Do it now. Do not procrastinate.
