There is joy that comes in being a soul winner. Proverbs 11:30 says, “He that wins souls is wise.” It’s wise to set our sights on leading somebody to Jesus. There’s wisdom in that. It’s often looked down upon now. The consensus is that we shouldn’t proselyte or force our views on others. We shouldn’t say anything that might offend somebody else. Listen, don’t worry about all that. Be obedient to share Jesus with people. Pray for opportunities and look for ways to build friendships that lead to Gospel conversations. Why do that? Because people need the Lord, and their time here on this earth is to allow them to get ready for eternity.
An old hymn we used to sing when I was growing up says,”We shall come rejoicing bringing in the sheaves.” It’s based on Psalm 126:5-6. “Those who sow in tears shall reap in joy. He who continually goes forth weeping, bearing seed for sowing, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.”
Have you ever been a part of leading somebody to Jesus? Then you know about the rejoicing part, when you help lead someone to Christ and watch their face change from night to day, and see the joy that comes over their face. You will never forget that.
