To Be a Soul-winner


It seems that God has a special smile for those who throw themselves into the task of seeking to save the lost. In John chapter four, when Jesus told His disciples that He ate something of which they knew nothing, He had been sharing the Gospel. The great Bible commentator, Matthew Henry, said, "I would think it a greater happiness to gain one soul to Christ than mountains of silver and gold to myself." Charles Spurgeon said, "To be a soul winner is the happiest thing in this world." While we can obtain pleasure from reading the Bible, from fellowship with other Christians, and from worship, seeking the lost (and doing it biblically) gives the Christian a unique satisfaction. Philemon 1:6 says that if you share your faith, it will open up a deeper spiritual realm. Dive into that deeper realm today. There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
