Greetings in the Matchless Name of our Lord Jesus Christ by whom we have received the mandate to “Preach the Full Message of this New Life” to the peoples of this world.
We serve a God who is more concerned about our wellbeing spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically, maritally, socially, financially and vocationally more than we could ever be. See Jeremiah 29:11 NIV; 1 Peter 5:7 AMPC. However, He is far more concerned about our eternity. This is the very reason He sent His only son into the world. See John 3:16-17; 2 Peter 3:9.
Welcome to our Month of Soul Winning. God’s plan for humanity is still unchanging. He still desires to see that men are saved, healed and filled with the Holy Spirit. God’s message to the world is still the same. He loves people. He cares about their eternal destiny. See Mark 16:15; Matthew 28:19-20; 1 Timothy 2:4.
God does not want to see anyone die without Christ. He wants everyone to be blessed, healthy and well taken care of in pursuit of His plans and purposes for their lives. Our God is not a God who detaches Himself from the wellbeing of His people. He wants to be a part for our everyday lives. See Hebrews 13:5-6 AMPC; 2 Corinthians 6:14-18.
We serve a Faithful God whose heart yearns for intimacy with humanity and fellowship with us that He releases all of heaven’s resources in pursuit of the salvation of men. Soul winning is the answer to the current challenges in our societies. This is because man’s greatest need is fellowship and relationship with God the Father.
As we reach out to others in love and faith, proclaiming the saving gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, we become vehicles of redemptive change. This is because as men and women are saved, we increase the kingdom of God and God has more people to express Himself through.
Soul winning facilitates the fulfillment of God’s will and the advancement of the plans and purposes of the kingdom. Therefore through soul winning we minimize the influence of satan as we displace him out of the lives of those who are being saved.
Soul winning is a necessity today because of the sense of hopelessness in our world today. Don’t be quiet. Speak up. Reach out. Invest in the Gospel. Give your time, your talent and your treasures to reach people. The suicide rate in the world today is astronomical.
Let’s step out to be the solution. Let’s become inventive in seeking out creative ways and means to reach people with the Love of God, the Word of God and the Healing Power of God in order to see men and women saved, marriages healed, people delivered from demonic oppression and restored to a life of dignity.
God needs you now because there are people that only you can reach. There are people whose eternal destiny depends on you. Reach out to someone today with the Gospel. Somebody is waiting on you. You can influence others for Christ. Reach out to pray with someone. God will honor your words. If we all do this, it will make a significant difference for the kingdom of God and make the world a better place.
May God give you the grace and the boldness to be able to minister to others. May God stir your heart with His love and compassion for the lost. May God make you a burning and shining light of the Person, Presence and the Power of the Holy Spirit to this dark and dank world in Jesus Name, Amen.
In His Majesty’s Service,
