REASONS WHY YOU MUST WIN SOULS

If you are a Christian and you don’t win souls its a sin just like lying, getting drunk, hatred, murder or adultery.it is a wicked and terrible sin. Every preacher and every Christian ought to win souls. Any Christian who does not win souls is sinning. Here are some reasons why we must win souls.


Because it is the great commission (Matthew 28;18-20)
“And Jesus came and spake unto them ,saying, All power is given unto me in Heaven and in earth.Go ye therefore ,and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father,and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost;teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you;and ,lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen”
We call this the great commission and it contains three teachings. First, go and teach all nations the word-that means make disciples of men in all nations by teaching them how to be saved. Secondly, baptize them. Third, teach them to observe all things that Jesus commanded us. Soul winning is the main thing with God. If it isn’t first with the preacher, then the preacher isn’t right. If souls winning isn’t the first thing with the church, the church isn’t right . When we fail to win souls we commit the sin of disobedience to the main command that Jesus Christ ever gave. We have an all-inclusive command for every Christian in the Great Commission. Not to obey that is not to obey Jesus on the one thing He died for, the main thing He gave instruction about.

To Avoid Being Held Responsible For The Blood Of Others(Ezekiel 3;17-19)
 “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. 18 When I say to a wicked person, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn them or speak out to dissuade them from their evil ways in order to save their life, that wicked person will die for[a] their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood. 19 But if you do warn the wicked person and they do not turn from their wickedness or from their evil ways, they will die for their sin; but you will have saved yourself.
This passage is perhaps one of the clearest of all scriptures on the continuous command to evangelize and reach out to the lost souls. Ezekiel is told that  he is the watchman for the house of Israel  and he need to warn unbelievers  of their evil ways  in order to save them from God’s judgment . God told Ezekiel that He will hold him accountable for those that he has not evangelized to who die in their sins. Sadly , there are many Christians who do not care about the warning to the wicked  for them to turn from  their evil ways and telling them about the good news of Jesus. Consequently many Christians will have bloody hands when they get to heaven and would be judged for their failed efforts to evangelize. Some claim that unbelievers generally do not repent after reading tract, or having sermon preached to them as many rather argue the existence of God, the authority of the Bible and make other  attacks against Christian faith ,therefore there is no need to evangelize. I am convinced and believe that the best way to evangelize is clearly to “preach the word” and let the Holy Spirit take care of the rest. You are expected to keep watch over your cell members, your family,your household, your colleagues at work, your church members etc. This is because if any of these miss heaven you will answer for their blood.

Soul Winners Are Wise(Proverbs11;30)
The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and he that winneth souls is wise”
The Bible describes a soul winner as a wise person . what does it mean if we do not win souls? Let us answer this for ourselves.

To Deliver Souls From Destruction (1 Timothy 2;4, 2Peter3;9)
It is not in the plan of God that any soul should get lost. That is why He gave His only begotten son Jesus Christ  to die in our place so that we shall inherit eternal life. Soul winning should be the focus of every believer. There should be urgency to reach out to others. Someone once said,if we really believe in the horror and pain of the fiery devils in hell, then we will crawl across broken glass to tell one poor,lost soul about Jesus—who(Jesus) is the only way to escape an eternity in the awful place called hell.

Because It Glorified God(John 15;8)
“ herein is my father glorified ,that ye bear much fruit;so shall ye be my disciples.”
There are those who say that our prime motivation is not to win people to Christ but to glorify God. I do not disagree with them, but I must remind them that the Bible clearly says God is glorified when we bring forth much fruit and one of the fruits we bear is souls. How many souls have you won since you became born again? Be fruitful. Win a soul today.
