Are We Reaching Out to Others With the Gospel?
It’s easy to go through the motions without fulfilling the heart of the Great Commission—leading people to salvation through Jesus Christ. It is encouraging to remember that God has specifically commissioned us with His gospel. We are His ambassadors (Mark 16:15). And when we consider that we’ve been commissioned to deliver a message with this urgency and importance, it adds weight to our responsibility. Over the years, I’ve noticed that some people seem to have a gift for shopping. Not only do they love to do it, but when they go out, they bring something home—every time! Their success in shopping is simple: they go out looking—specifically, attentively. If we would go out soul winning with the same tenacity of focus— specifically, attentively looking to reach the lost—perhaps we would be more successful in our efforts. Ultimately, it is the Holy Spirit who is the true Soul Winner. Only He can convict people of their need for Christ and convince them to place their faith in Him (John 16:7-9). The Holy Spirit uses the Word of God to bring conviction. It is our responsibility to share God’s Word with those who do not know Christ. The Holy Spirit will use His Word to point out the person’s sin, and the righteousness available through Christ. Are we going out as a matter of duty, or are we going because we’ve been commissioned by God? Are we seeking to show others the compassion of Christ? Are we taking the conversation beyond a simple invitation to church, sharing God’s Word, and allowing the Holy Spirit to bring conviction?
