Everybody likes to win, in sports, creative arts competitions, business deals, even political elections. Folks just want to win which is great, as it gives us a high and a good feeling for a while, and then we look for the next thing to be a winner at all over again.
If you are a Christian, then hopefully you are saved, (I used the word hopefully because of the state of the Church) what I mean is that you are part of God’s family and when we leave our temporary home, we will spend eternity chilling with Jesus.
However, if that’s only our aim, then we are acting selfishly, there are billions of other souls that God wants to spend eternity with him in Heaven.
You might say they have done this or that and are still doing it, well the answer to that, if not for God’s Grace where would we that know the Lord, be?
I have got to know some unbelievers, and I see what God sees in them, the real them – their essence. Some might even be part of a different kingdom, but we must make sure we sow seeds of God’s Love.
I know they have been deceived, but the Bible says in Proverbs 11.31 that the person that wins souls is wise, it’s the greatest good deed a Christian can ever make.
I haven’t figured it all out myself, but I know when I see things of the Light and things of Darkness – this I know for sure, the Bible also confirms it.
Now in as much as getting people saved is crucial, we have to look inward ourselves.
In the Book of Revelations, the LORD named the state of various Churches, I don’t want to say too much, but there is some stuff that goes on in some places that we know, it’s not of God.
It doesn’t matter how large or small the congregations are; some Churches don’t come close to meeting the standard of the early church.
It’s important to want to save souls, but what about those that are already in the Church, what type of teachings are the congregation fed, there can never be a secular Church.
Jesus didn’t die for us to have a secular Church. Some churches are limited to what they can preach in their Churches.
Let me just leave it there; you know what am talking about.
More importantly, let’s save some souls from going to Hell. At least once they are saved, if some Churches are not doing it right, the Holy Spirit can provide private tuition.
It is crucial that we let the unsaved know that JESUS LOVES THEM, no matter how much they might have missed the mark.
Until next time, keep Believing, Keep Hoping & Keep Loving
