Just as the children of Israel were delivered from bondage to be free to serve God, so also the believers are redeemed to serve God. We are saved to serve. The primary reason for your salvation is not to bear the title “born again” as an emblem, but to serve God in all sincerity of your heart.
Exodus 7:16b (KJV) …Let my people go, that they may serve me…
You cannot claim to be too old to serve God. God is the ancient of days. You cannot claim to be too rich to serve God. The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof. All the silver and gold belong to God. What you are, He gave you; what you are, He made you. You cannot claim to be too educated and civilized to serve God. God is the only wise God. All the wisdom of the world put together is not up to the ‘foolishness’ of God.
1 Corinthians 1:25 (KJV) Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
God is the MOST HIGH. He is the King of the whole earth. No one is exempted from serving HIM regardless of age, social status, title or possession. Service to God is a life-time obligatory responsibility of every believer. You are to serve God spiritually, physically and financially.
Soul winning is an important aspect of service to God. It is an aspect of spiritual service. Soul winning was the business of Jesus during His earthly ministry.
Luke 19:10 (KJV) For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
Jesus was a Soul Winner. He was sent by the Father to pursue the business of soul winning and His business is our business.
Luke 2:49 (KJV) And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?
John 20:21 (KJV) Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.
We are sent to win souls. Every believer is commissioned to preach the gospel to the sinners and win them for Christ. Soul winning is our general assignment as people of God. It is not the assignments of Pastors or Evangelist alone but of Christians at large.
Our value for our redemption is expressed through our involvement in soul winning. There is nothing you will do for God that can move God like soul winning. God values soul winning. God values one soul more than all the wealth in the world. Soul winning is the heartbeat of God.
Luke 15:10 (KJV) Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.
The business of soul winning is not truly accomplished until the soul abides or is established in the Church.
John 15:16 (KJV) Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
God wants you to preserve every soul you won. If they are not preserved, they may be lost to the world. Until the souls are established, the business is not finalized. Soul winning is the most profitable venture on earth. When you win souls committedly, and get them established in the Church, God is glorified in your life and so you become empowered and authorized to draw anything you want from heaven’s account.
God bless you.
