Proverbs 11:30 tells us, “The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.” This is the ultimate mandate given to the body of Christ by Christ Himself when He was ascending into heaven after His resurrection from the grave as was spoken of Him.
We see this in the book of Acts after which Jesus told His disciples to tarry in Jerusalem for the promise- The Holy Spirit. It is after a Christian receives the Holy Spirit before he/ she is able to go out there to make win souls because of the power given him/ her by the Spirit.
But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
The Holy Spirit is the promise of God through Christ given to us in order to live the victorious Christian life Christ purchased for us and run with endurance the race set before us.
Have you ever wanted to lead somebody to the Lord, but were afraid because you didn’t feel “qualified” enough to do so? Or you hesitated because you couldn’t quote the entire Bible?
To lead somebody to the Lord, we only need to be willing and obedient. Those are the two characteristics God is looking for.
We are all human, and we all make mistakes. There may have been times when we knew God was leading us to minister to somebody, but we didn’t do as He asked.
In those cases, we need to repent, move on, and not let it hinder us from doing what God has called us to do. The Apostle Peter erred by denying Jesus three times, but on the day of Pentecost, he told people about Jesus and led nearly 3,000 people to the Lord!
Let that be an example to us. Don’t let your mistakes take you away from God. Instead, let them be a reminder that we can’t do anything apart from Him!
Do the work of an Evangelist!
