The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise. Proverbs 11:30
Charles Spurgeon has a classic book called “The Soul Winner” which talks about evangelizing to unsaved people. I highly recommend this book to any Christian, why? Because I don’t think the modern day Church spends anytime on training or talking about evangelizing to unsaved people. The Proverb here tells us “They that win souls is wise” why? Because you are doing The Lords work, you are planting the seed, plowing the fields, for Gods harvest
Jesus said “ Go and make disciples of all the nations” (Matthew 28:19) This is known in theology as the “Great Commission” this was the marching orders Christ gave to the Church before he ascended back to Heaven. But how many Christians are doing this at all? How many people have you told the gospel message to? How many awkward conversations did you have with your family members or co workers about Christ?
Today if a celebrity even mentions they might be a Christian or believe in God, were supposed to be impressed and jump for joy. This is totally weak, most of these “celebrities” are pawning the name of Christ to sell merchandise. However none of them are preaching the cross, none of them are preaching repentance, none of them are concerned about winning souls, they are concerned with themselves
Are you concerned about winning souls? Or are you too ashamed of Christ to mention his name at work? Are you to embarrassed to tell your family that Jesus is your Master? Jesus said “Whoever confesses me before others I will confess to my Father, and whoever denies me before others I will deny before my Father” (Matthew 10:32-33)
Go and win souls, go and make disciples of Christ! As Jesus said “He will give you the words to speak” (Luke 12:11) Keep it simple, preach the gospel, make connections with people in Jesus Name Amen!
