Every Command of Scriptures is for our Profiting. 2nd Timothy 3:16-17 says, "All scriptures is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished into all good works."
Having established the above truth from scriptures, one thing we must guard against is wrong association. In Psalm 1:1, the Bible declares that the man is blessed, who does not walk in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful. In verses two and three, it says, "His delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper(1st Corinthians 15:33).
So the principle thing is to identify instructions from scriptures, follow them, and blessings will follow. One of the command of scriptures is that of soul winning.
THE SOUL WINNING COMMANDMENT
This commandment is valid for all times. John 15:16 tells us that Jesus chose and ordained us to bring abiding fruits, after which we can ask the Father whatever we desire, in the name of Jesus. This is why the soul winning command delivers like a blank cheque.; soul winners are entitled to wages from God. Matthew 15:16 explains the value God places on a soul and this therefore makes soul winning the most rewarding kingdom venture (Luke 19:10, 2nd Peter 3:9).
Every believer is therefore ordained as an evangelist. 2Tim. 4:8 says the blessing of soul winning transcends the earth. It ensures that we have divine presence and to keep God’s presence in the church we have to keep winning souls for the kingdom.
THE RETURNS ON SOUL WINNING
Some of the benefits of winning souls are;
Divine Wisdom: In Proverbs 11:30, God's word says, “The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and he that winneth soul is wise”. God grants us access to divine wisdom when we engage in soul winning. This wisdom makes us outstanding in whatever we do. Daniel 12:3 buttresses this point by saying, “... they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness, as the stars for ever and ever." (Proverbs 3:35, 16:20,, 11:10.). Soul winning grants us access to divine secrets that make you shine as stars forever.
Prosperity: In Luke 22:35, Jesus, by way of a question reminded his apostles that they lacked nothing when he sent them on a soul-winning mission. It means that they were well provided for, even if they went with nothing. Because we partner with God in soul winning, we lack nothing (Job 36:11). We should therefore pray for souls, not money.
Perfect Health and Longevity: (John 15:2). In Exodus 23:25-26, the Bible says, “…And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread; and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee. There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land. The number of thy days, I will fulfill” (Proverbs 13:12). God is a divine surgeon who performs supernatural surgeries on His children and grants us sound health (Proverbs 13:17).
Answers to Prayers: “Therefore, it is come to pass, that as he cried, and they would not hear; so they cried, and I would not hear, saith the LORD of hosts” (Zechariah 7:13). Answers to prayers are not in the volume of words used during prayer, but in the instruction you obey. When you obey the instruction of soul winning by not only praying for them but going out to invite them, God answers your prayers speedily.
It Delivers Joy: Bible reaches us in Nehemiah 8:10 that the joy of the Lord is our strength. Soul winning brings God's presence, which in turn, delivers joy (Psalm 16:11). Heaven also reciprocates the joy it receives at the repentance if a sinner, in the life of the soul winner (Luke 15:10).
Honour: Anyone who contributes in bringing souls into the kingdom is contributing to honour God and when you honour Him, He honours you.The honour of the King is in the multitudes so as we pray, we also go out to give them compelling invitations to the house of God for servicing and rest (2nd Samuel 2:30).
