HIGHER EVERYDAY DEVOTIONAL
MONDAY APRIL 26, 2021
TOPIC: GO FOR THE LOST AND LONE
TEXT: MARK 16:15-20
MEMORY VERSE: “For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost” (LUKE 19:10).
The minister of God, D. L. Moody, said, "A man who has found out what his true work is - winning souls to Christ - and does it, such is the happiest man." Indeed, the essence of living for every true Christian, who believes the Bible, is to win souls for Christ.
The scripture, "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature..." is obviously a command, technically commissioning every child of God into the business of soul-winning. Soul-winning is, therefore, the primary job of every believer, attracting inestimable eternal reward. All other life's endeavours are only secondary, being mundane.
Our Master, Jesus Christ, left everything else in Heaven and came down to earth only "to seek and to save that which was lost." All true servants and disciples of Jesus Christ would naturally delight in pursuing the same goal. Do you think you are doing so? Do your school mates and neighbours feel the positive impact of the gospel through you? Wisely win souls by the various media available to us in this modern world.
QUOTE: Win souls for Christ.
CHALLENGE: Be like Jesus, make soul-winning your business.
Prayer: Father, teach me the art of soul-winning.
