Open Heaven 30 May
MEMORIZE: The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise. Proverbs 11:30
BIBLE READING: LUKE 10:1-3
Despite all your endeavours, if you are not actively winning souls, you are courting fruitlessness, and believe me, you don’t want to face the consequences of being fruitless, as stated in John 15:1-2:
“I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, He purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.“
If you are wise, you will make soul winning a priority in everything you do. When churches organise programmes with great crowds gathered and at the end of the day, there is no call for salvation, I just think what a waste of time, effort and money. What is the essence of doing anything at all in the Church if it will not ultimately lead more people to heaven?.
What is the essence of organising concerts, doing all the jamboree and shouting to praise the Most High God if we do not prioritise His very heartbeat – bringing lost souls back to His kingdom? If you are a leader in any capacity in the body of Christ, I am speaking to you now. Whatever you are planning to organise in the Church that will not ultimately win souls to God’s kingdom or help already won souls to stand more firmly for God is a complete waste of time.
If you are not bearing fruits, God Himself will take you away from the Vine. What a fearful thing it is if God Himself separates you from Jesus Christ! In your secular activities too, you must use every opportunity to win souls. Imagine how many terrorists would have been won to Christ, imagine how many parents of wayward children would have trained their children on the right path, if we had been using every available opportunity to win souls.
Anytime I am invited for honorary awards anywhere around the world, as long as I have that microphone in my hand and a few seconds to talk, I will appreciate the givers of the award and remind them that Jesus is coming soon with His own reward. No matter where you are, no matter who you are, no matter what you do, make soul-winning your lifestyle.
PRAYER POINT: How well do you use all the platforms at your disposal to win souls into the Kingdom of God?
