People are dying every day, we can’t stop them from dying but we can stop them from going to hell or warn them of hell and this can only be done through evangelism …CF Na.
A couple of reasons why we should prioritize soul winning:
- Soul winning is a clear unavoidable command of God thus it’s not an option (Matt 28:19-20). This is the greatest commission given to us by God and if we fail to do it, then we disobeying God.
- Soul winning is the heart beat of God. All of his plans and purposes from the beginning of time up to this very hour have centered on Man’s redemption. We must be at work to fulfill the vision of winning the lost, feeding the sheep and making disciples of new converts . If we are faithful to this commission and continue to stand firm in the faith , we will soon hear him say , well done thou good and faithful servant.
- Jesus came to seek and save the lost , we do so similarly when we join in seeking and saving the lost (Luke 19:10)
- There is a hell and It won’t be proper to watch our loved ones go to hell and suffer the punishment from sin, Psalms 9:17 The wicket shall be turned into hell and all the nations that forget God. Rev 21:8 ( But the fearful and unbelieving , and the abominable and murderers and whore-mongers and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars shall have their part in the lake of fire…..
- We know how to escape hell. Imagine seeing a blind man to be run by a car, won’t you try stopping him from being hurt? How much more of us who know how to escape eternal condemnation to keep it from those who desperately need the truth
- Soul winning is a decent thing to do. It’s not friendship to withhold the gospel from those who need it. Having a friend as a Christian and not presenting the gospel to that friend is the most indecent thing to do.
- There is a heaven and there is joy involved in soul winning. The reason why God has preserved us as Christians is so that we bring others into his family thus populating heaven.
- We shouldn’t be selfish with sharing the joy we have found in Christ and moreover we are not saved to be silent. Satan’s ultimate goal is to stop others from going to heaven and thus populating hell, so if we are silent we are simply his accomplice reasons why we have to prioritize soul winning cause it’s a dreadful thing to side with the Devil.
- Soul winning glorifies God (John 15:8 here in my father glorified, that ye bear much fruit , so shall ye be my disciples )
- Soul winning encourages believers; iron sharpens iron ( when we win souls for Christ and launch the operation reach put campaign every month , it encourages others to come to evangelism as well ) thus through evangelism many people would be encouraged because the gospel is the good news.
- Our primary purpose of living is for the gospel that is why Paul boldly said for me to live is Christ and to die is gain Phil 1:21.
- It’s a privilege to be partakers in God’s work, many especially those in hospitals and war zones are not opportune. It’s God giving us a means to serve. So it’s of prime importance considering our degree of service
- To be a soul winner is the happiest thing in the world.
- We must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every man may receive the things done in his body, whether good or bad (2 Corinthians 5:10-11)
- We are ambassadors of our father and we have to make our kingdom known
- It is not the desire of our father that any should perish ( 2 Peter 3:9)
- Our hands will be stained with blood of the lost if we don’t tell them or warn them Ezekiel 3:18
- Evangelism is actually the work Jesus would do if he had not ascended into heaven, now that he lives in us, we are called to continue he work his started through us.
- Jesus commanded it ( Matt 16:15)
- Evangelism is an opportunity to work directly with and for God ( Luke 10;2)
After knowing these, i believe you wont want to stay quiet , but let the world know about Christ . Remember we are not saved to be silent.
