“Those who are wise shall shine Like the brightness of the firmament, And those who turn many to righteousness Like the stars forever and ever.” – Daniel 12:3 NKJV
“The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, And he who wins souls is wise.” – Proverbs 11:30 NKJV
Heaven celebrates and rewards soul-winning, eternally. When we understand this, our prayer lives will change our faith walk will change, which will also change our effectiveness. It is often said that we are not saved for ourselves, when GOD saves us, we ought to avail ourselves to be instruments in His hands, for Him to use us and move on the earth through us. However just as we are the body of Christ, the body has many members (1 Corinthians 12:18-20), we need one another and we all need to play our part.
“I planted the seed in your hearts, and Apollos watered it, but it was God who made it grow. It’s not important who does the planting, or who does the watering. What’s important is that God makes the seed grow. The one who plants and the one who waters work together with the same purpose. And both will be rewarded for their hard work.”(1 Corinthians 3:6-8 NLT). Soul-winning carries rewards, the part you play in winning a soul will be rewarded. Whether it is telling someone about Jesus or inviting someone to church or even being raised up by GOD to be a minister of the Word, entrusted to deliver the true, authentic Word of God, or even a Pastor of a congregation, entrusted to look after GOD’s people.
Soul winning is for the wise, the wise win souls because they understand just how important it is to GOD. We are called into joint-participation as believers to fulfill the plan and purpose of GOD here on earth, and like it’s always said, “the only thing you can take to heaven with you is a soul/souls”. It’s time for us to go back and cry to GOD for Him to lead us and show us where we are called to play our part. GOD wants to use all of us so that we will shine like the stars forever and ever, so let us partner with GOD and play our part.
The only thing you can take to heaven with you is a soul/souls.
