TOPIC: PERSONAL JOY AND EXCITEMENT IN SOUL WINNING
SCRIPTURE: Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The easiest way to have personal happiness is to contribute to the happiness of heaven by winning souls.
The Scripture makes it clear that the salvation of souls is a trigger for joy in heaven.
Luke 15:10 says,
Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.
We thank God for the miracles, signs and wonders that we see in our days. We thank God for the miraculous opening of blind eyes and the healing of deaf ears.
However, I have never read or seen in Scriptures that, for every lame man that walks, heaven rejoices; or that for every deaf ear that opens, heaven rejoices.
What the Scripture says is, for every sinner that repents, there is jubilation in heaven. This means, soul winning makes heaven happy. And whatever a man sows, he shall reap.
Galatians 6:7 says,
….for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
Therefore, you cannot sow joy in heaven by winning souls and not reap joy on earth. You cannot make heaven happy, and then the devil makes you sad on earth. The easiest way to have personal happiness is to contribute to the happiness of heaven by winning souls.
Every time people give their lives to Jesus Christ through your life, you have thrown a party of jubilation in heaven. Every time you preach to your colleagues at your place of work and they give their lives to Christ, you trigger happiness in heaven. Every time you lead your siblings or relations to Christ, you trigger jubilation in heaven.
So, we must be committed to soul-winning because it triggers joy and excitement in heaven, and that in turn brings personal joy and excitement to our lives.
Remember this: The easiest way to have personal happiness is to contribute to the happiness of heaven by winning souls.
- Contribute to the excitement in heaven by soul-winning and you shall reap joy also.
- Make soul-winning a lifetime endeavour.
PRAYER: Lord, I make a decision today to contribute to joy and excitement in heaven by winning souls. I receive the grace to be prompt in this assignment, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
