Are You a Soul Winner?

...he that winneth souls is wise. - Proverbs 11: 30

Father, so often I get taken up with "things", and forget that they are only temporary. I wonder what kind of treasure I am building up for heaven. Am I thinking of those here on earth who don't have that peace of knowing YOU as their Saviour? LORD, our lifetime is so short here on earth, and eternity is forever. YOU have brought this verse to my attention over three times in the last few hours and so may this be my goal, to win souls for YOUR heavenly kingdom and to bring honour and glory to YOUR name.

My dear Child, there could be no greater reward than to win souls for CHRIST. Can you imagine what it would be like to arrive home in heaven, bringing a crowd of people with you, whose lives were changed because you took the time to tell them about JESUS and what HE could do for them? They were out there searching for peace and satisfaction, but could not find it. You showed them from the Bible, GOD'S written word, that one sin was going to keep them out of heaven, because no sin can enter heaven, and "we have all sinned." (Romans 3: 23) Doing good deeds was not going to get them into heaven, because I said in Romans 3: 12 "There is none that doeth good, no not one." I said in John 3: 3, 7 "Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of GOD." MY SON, the LORD JESUS, the perfect ONE, had to die for sin, and HE bore the penalty for it, when HE died on the cross. Man cannot take sins away! Only I can take it away and remember it no

The moment someone realizes that they have sinned and cannot save themselves, and believe in their heart that JESUS died for them, they are saved. They are MINE, and now know peace and satisfaction! Can you imagine the joy that person has, once they become MY child and the burden of sin is gone? Does this mean they will never have any troubles or trials in their lives? Absolutely not! However, there is a big difference now! I am with them as they go through the deep waters. They didn't have ME or want ME in their lives before, but now they do, and the eternal GOD is their refuge and underneath them are the everlasting arms! Do you think that would give them peace in times of trouble? Or knowing that they can now talk to ME, their heavenly FATHER? Do you think they would be thankful for the person that stopped by and told them about JESUS?

So MY dear child, don't hide your light under a bushel. When you stop and realize the difference JESUS could make in a person's life, and it gets a hold of you, you will want to win souls to bring honor and glory to GOD, and for HIS kingdom. Think of all those, whose destinies could be changed, if you took the time to share JESUS with them. Start today, telling others about what JESUS has done and is doing in your life and let them make the choice, as to whether they want to receive HIM or reject HIM. The choice is theirs, but would you want to arrive home in heaven, knowing that those left behind for judgment, were wishing you would have shared JESUS with them? After all, where would you be today, if someone had not shared JESUS with you?

Prayer: Our Loving LORD, Help me to put my fears aside, and tell others how they can know for sure that they are going to be in heaven when they die. Let me be wise for your sake, and tell others how JESUS can change their life and give them true lasting peace. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen.

Have a Blessed Wednesday and God Bless you.
