Winning Souls — A Joyful Experience
Have you ever given much thought about what is the real reason that we are here? In Mark 16:15 Jesus commanded His disciples to "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature". We have a responsibility to ourselves as Christians and to God our Father to teach Jesus to those we come in contact with. Leading souls to Christ is simple. It takes a love for God, love for the souls of others, and love for our own soul. When we have a true love for souls, then we will want to study the Bible more in order to find out what we can learn about our Lord Jesus Christ so we can be more effective in leading others to Him. The best soul-winners are enthusiastic converts to Christ. You can't teach someone how to be enthusiastic about Christ, it comes from putting on Christ "For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ" (Gal 3:27). Once an individual realizes that Christ really died for them, washed away all sin, and keeps God's commandments "If ye love me, keep my commandments" (John 14:15), they know they will have life everlasting with God the Father. This is what really gets a Christian excited. Because of this enthusiasm an individual then seeks out others to try and teach Jesus to because they want them to experience that joyful feeling that they experienced when they were baptized, knowing that all their sins were washed away (Acts 2:38). Winning souls is truly a joyful experience!
