(Three Reasons For Reconciling Others To Christ)
TO THE BIBLE: Mark 16:15 CEV
“Then he (Jesus) told them: Go and preach the good news to everyone ina the world.”
“Pastor, must every Christian win souls?” Mark asked his Pastor at a special “Questions and Answers” service.
“Yes, we all must,” Mark’s Pastor answered, “It’s how we testify to our world of the wonderful gift of righteousness God has given us.”
“But Pastor, what if I don’t feel like testifying to my world?” Mark pressed on.
“Mark, no one who receives an awesome gift hides it. You’d want to show it off to your friends,” the Pastor maintained. “When we preach the Gospel, we’re showing off our wonderful gift of righteousness and inviting them to partake of it as well.”
There’re three important reasons you must preach the Gospel and win souls as a Christian. First is your faith in the Lord Jesus and His glorious Gospel.
The second reason is your love for Him and hope of His soon return. The third reason is His instruction for us to win souls. These three reasons should compel you to win souls.
God has determined that souls be won to His Kingdom, and He’s given us the responsibility to locate the lost in our world and share the Gospel with them. Therefore, you must reach the unreached and bring them to Christ; it’s your primary and solemn responsibility as a child of God.
The Apostle Paul, recognising this, wrote this: “…God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.
We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors…” (2 Corinthians 5:19-20 NIV). Be fully committed to the Gospel and its furtherance around the world.
Romans 1:16; Matthew 28:19-20; 2 Corinthians 3:6
Dear Father, I thank you for making me an able minister of the New Testament in taking the Gospel to the ends of the earth. I fulfil my calling with boldness, faith, courage and conviction. The light of your glorious Gospel shines brightly through me today, bringing men out of darkness, into the glorious liberty of the sons of God, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
