SCRIPTURE: He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. Isaiah 53:11.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Soul winning makes the suffering of Jesus Christ on the Cross of Calvary not to be in vain.
Soul winning is one Kingdom assignment and obligation of every child of God. 1 Corinthians 9:16, Apostle Paul said,
…for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!
Soul winning is an obligation every child of God needs to fulfil.
Now, why is soul winning necessary?
The Salvation of Souls is the Reward for the Travails of Our Master.
Soul winning makes the suffering of Jesus Christ on the Cross of Calvary not to be in vain.
We bring satisfaction to Jesus’ labour when we win souls. Jesus suffered on the Cross of Calvary to save the lost.
Isaiah 53:11 says,
He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
Jesus Christ is looking forward to seeing the fulfilment of the reason why He suffered on the Cross of Calvary so He can be satisfied.
Whenever you reach out to lost souls, you are telling Jesus, “You were not beaten in vain. You didn’t suffer for nothing. You did not bleed in vain. I must win souls to ensure Your Sacrifice on the Cross is not in vain.”
And if you say that your Master should not labour in vain, is there any devil that can make you labour in vain? If you go out to win souls, thereby making the suffering of Jesus on Calvary not to be in vain, is there any devil that can make you suffer for nothing? No, no devil can make you labour in vain if you are a soul winner.
If you make up your mind that the Labour of your Master would not be in vain, there is no way the devil can make you labour in vain. So, the purpose of soul winning is the rewarding of the travails of our Master.
Remember this: Soul winning makes the suffering of Jesus Christ on the Cross of Calvary not to be in vain.
1. Take soul winning as a personal responsibility.
