Are you ready to answer the honorable call to join God’s soul-winning team? This is a call from the Almighty God to every Christian and is with great blessings attached. However, many are too busy this season to answer this call to reach out for the salvation of others.
Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen – Matthew 28:19-20 (NKJV).
The salvation of others is paramount on God’s agenda for the world. Unfortunately, many Christians are living as though all that matters is to remain righteous. So, they work on ensuring that they have no spots, wrinkles, or blemishes. This is good but there is more to it, for God wants all saved.
Christ’s mission on earth was to reconcile all men back to God. And as He was leaving He gave the disciples the great commission as recorded in Matthew 28:19-20.
This commission was to make disciples of all nations. And the disciples did a great job of this commission. They answered the call and that’s why we have many believing Christians today. And now it’s our generation’s turn.
Whatever you may be busy with other than the salvation of others, will only count for you here on earth. However, soul-winning will, not only count for you in heaven but also count for you here on earth. So, it has both earthly and eternal value. Therefore, it’s very important that you answer this honorable call from God.
The kingdom of God is a networking family. For you were led to Christ by someone and you’re to lead someone else to Christ. This is a chain that must not be broken, for Christ chose you to go and bear fruit that will abide (John 15:16).
Soul-winning is the Father’s business, so you must ensure its success. And if you’re a co-heir with Jesus Christ, then you must work as He did. For, the Lord while on earth went about carrying out the Father’s business even as a child (Luke 2:49).
Furthermore, when Peter’s focus wanted to deviate from the great commission, the Lord visited them and re-positioned him back on track. And Christ is still doing the same today because the heart-beat of God must be attended to. So, when Peter fully surrendered to the call, he became truly the cornerstone upon which Christ built His church. Therefore, no matter what your work is now, let your love for God move you to feed His sheep (John 21:17).
There are many souls out there ripe for the salvation of Christ. But, how will they receive Him if they don’t hear the gospel of Christ and how will they hear if no one preaches to them. So, many people out there are waiting for you and me to reach out to them.
The Salvation Army of God is on the move. It’s passing by you now through this post. Are you coming on board? Are you answering the call to join the soul-winning team of God today? Answer the call today and your life will never be the same again.
