We are all sinners and deserve God’s judgment but God in His loving nature, sent His only Son Jesus to save those who will believe.
Here are three reasons why it is important to win souls for God!
1. God loves people
God loves souls, in fact, it is the first reason why He sent His Only Son Jesus as a Living Sacrifice to take the punishment for our sins. The Bible makes it clear that God loved us first. And God loved us so much. God values people’s souls so highly.
We love God because He first loved us, and in Loving God, we need to love others. There is a huge need to share the love of God among all people, for we need to hear the truth that God doesn’t want anyone to die or perish! But instead, He desires for everyone to come to Him in repentance.
God’s love refreshes and recharges us. It fills us with power that energizes our actions of love towards others.
2. Lost people need to be saved
After that first sin entered into the world through one man, human nature is simply being perpetually corrupted. It’s normal for humans to have a corrupt nature because of what Adam did at the beginning. And because of that sinful nature, all people are subject to death as a penalty.
By knowing God’s love for us, we know how to love others and that motivates us to share the love of God with them so that they can experience God’s fullness. Once we see how precious all people are to God, we will do all we can to win them to Christ.
Humanity needs a Savior, for humans cannot save themselves.
3. It is the Great Commission
Winning souls is the Great Commission. It is Jesus’ command to all His followers/disciples to spread His teachings to all the nations of the world. It is a personal instruction from Jesus and a special calling to His disciples.
Jesus calls every Christian to step out in faith and spread the Good News. The Gospel brings good tidings to everyone who will hear it. It offers eternal life to everyone who believes.
We as Christians are compelled to obey this commandment.
And if you are someone who hasn’t ever invited Jesus into your heart, we invite you to receive Jesus right now as your Savior! Declare with us that, “Jesus is Lord,” and you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in Heaven!
