Why Every Christian Ought To Win Souls!!!

  1. Because Satan seeks to destroy men - 2 Co 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. Rev. 9:11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon. Satan is called "Abaddon" and "Apollyon," which means destruction and destroyer respectively. Satan's motive is to get even with God. Satan tried to overthrow God but failed in his attempt. God cast him out of Heaven and because man is made in the image of God, Satan wants to get revenge against God by destroying men.
  2. Because Hell is real - The Bible says that "the wages of sin is death" and that "God will judge men for their sin." The end result for every sinner who does not repent of his sin will be the Lake of Fire. 2 Cor. 5:11a Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; Oh dear friend, what about our loved ones??? What about our next door neighbors??? Have you tried to tell them that Hell is real and is a terrible place of punishment???
  3. Because God saved us - The Lord Jesus Christ bought us with His own blood and therefore we, out of debt, should do all we can to show others what Christ can do for them. 2 Cor. 5:14-15 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again. The Lord has commanded us; Matt. 28:19-20 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
  4. Because the time is short - If there was ever a time that the "last days" were evident, it is now!!! Literally dozens of prophecies have been fulfilled within the last sixty years to show us that the end time is near.
  5. Because we need to be in fellowship with God - 1 John 1:6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: The way for any Christian to be in real fellowship and happiness with God is to witness to the lost around him day by day. There are many Christians who are miserable and out of fellowship with God because they make all kinds of excuses for not witnessing. God saved us not only from Hell, but that we might have peace and happiness in our lives in telling others about Christ.
  6. Because Jesus Christ was our example - The Lord Jesus Christ had compassion and wept over Jerusalem. Matt. 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! We as Christians will never win people to Christ until we have compassion for the "multitudes" of lost sinners around us.

Bro Jim thank you for sharing. I know the Lord has been stoking the fire to reaching souls once again or at least going out and planting, and watering and being where I need to be to see the increase.

I have a desire to win souls. I know it is a command of God to do so but I also have a desire to do so. Do I soul win like I should? Of course not...I don't think any of us do...but it ought to be the desire of our hearts to want to see people be delivered from that awful place called Hell and the Lake of Fire. Great post!!
