Daily Devotional

Soulwinning
He which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death.
JAMES 5:20
16
January
No man can be a Christian who is unconcerned for the salvation of others.
Richard Haldane
Salvation is of the Lord (Jon. 2:9). He alone can quicken a dead soul and forgive his sins. But He uses human instruments in bringing the gospel of salvation to sinners. He gives His people the privilege of being soulwinnersthose whose ministry is used by the Holy Spirit to convert the lost to Christ. John the Baptist was one such soulwinner (Luke 1:15-16). Paul was another whom the Lord sent to sinners to open their eyes, and to turn [or, convert] them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18). Now James tells us that this privilege is not limited to an elite in the church but is extended to all Gods people. It is a work for every Christian to do.

It is an important work. It deals with the great issues of eternity. It saves souls from death and hell. Beside this work all other earthly endeavours pale into insignificance. No doubt it is good to feed and clothe men, to educate and employ them. But what are these things in the light of eternity? What good have we done if we leave men to perish in their sins?

Let us not be sidetracked. We may save a fortune, but we cannot take it with us to heaven. Would we not be better to spend our fortuneand our very selvesto save souls? We can and will take the souls we win to heaven with us. Let us then give ourselves from this day on to the work of winning souls for Christ.
