"Why Christians should do Soul- Winning"

As rapture watchers and Christian believers in Jesus Christ , i can not think of anything more important that we should be doing in these last days before Jesus returns than sharing our faith with others. And yet research has shown that only 2 percent of professing Christians do faith sharing. So what is it about soul-winning, evangelism and street witnessing that puts fear into Christians ?
Maybe we don't realize how important doing evangelism is , or the eternal rewards one will receive in heaven for sharing their faith. Listed here are many good points for faith sharing and the eternal benefits of winning lost souls to God's Kingdom :
Soul Winning is starting a conversation with an unsaved person, and sharing God’s plan of
Salvation with him, from the Bible, so that he clearly understands HOW he may receive
Christ as his Saviour, and have eternal life. It is leading a person to Christ.
These reasons must be firmly grounded in our minds, and we must teach them to every
person that we disciple as soon as possible.
1. God commands us to. “Go and preach the gospel to every creature”. Mark 16:15.
2. That is why Christ came.’ The Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was
3. We must ALL appear before the Judgment Seat of Christ to receive REWARDS for
faithfully serving Christ. II Corinthians 5:10.
4. Because of HELL - “knowing the terror of the Lord, we persuade men”. II Corinthians
5:11. Hell is HOT, Heaven is SWEET, and JESUS SAVES”. See Luke 16:19-31; Mark
5. THE LOVE OF CHRIST Compels us. II Corinthians 5:14.
6. People are BLESSED by being saved, and by becoming a new creature. II Corinthians.
7. God has given us the MINISTRY (Job) of Reconciliation. II Corinthians 5:18.
This job is to bring God and man together.
8. We are AMBASSADORS for CHRIST. II Corinthians 5:20.
9. So Christ will say to us: “Well done thou good and faithful servant.” Matthew 25:21.
10. Soul - Winners are the best christians
11. Soul - Winners will shine as the stars forever  Daniel 12:3
12. So that we won’t be ashamed before Christ. 1 John 2:28.
13. There is a great need, but few labourers (Soul winners). Matthew 9:36-38.
14. JESUS was a soul - winner. John 4; Luke 19:10.
15. Not to have BLOODY HANDS. Ezekiel 3:17,18.
16. We have very little time to do soul-winning (John 9:4). We can’t do S.W. in heaven, only
on Earth.
17. Soul - Winning and Disciple - making is the only hope to save Australia from sin,
judgment and bad government. Ezekiel 22:30.
18. We’ll PERISH without a VISION of Soul Winning and Disciple Making. Proverbs 29:18.
19. Soul - Winning glorifies Christ. When people get saved, they praise God.
20. Soul - Winners are WISER, know the Bible BETTER, and have LESS FEAR.
21. GIVE (the Gospel), and it shall be given unto you. Luke 6:38.
Look after God’s interests and He’ll look after yours.
22. To plant and build Soul-Winning churches all over the world.
23. To HURT SATAN and to make heaven rejoice. Luke 15:3-7.
24. It’s a PRIVILEGE that angels don’t have. Acts 10:3-8.
25. Those you win to Christ will thank you in heaven, and love you always.
26. God gives greater opportunities for service (in this life and the next) to those who are
faithful in little things such as Soul-Winning. Matthew 25:21.
27. It’s great to see God use you.
28. If we don’t win them to Christ, the world or cults will win them for Satan.
29. “WOE is unto me if I preach NOT the gospel”. 1 Corinthians 9:16; Luke 12:47.
30. Soul-Winning is the most exciting way to spend your life.
31. You set a MULTIPLICATION CHAIN going that may have millions of people in it. 2
Timothy 2:2
33. Soul-Winning increases your love for people and for God.
34. Example of Christians in the past e.g. martyrs. Revelation 17:6.
35. It is the BEST WAY to MAKE FRIENDS.
36. It makes you HAPPY and brings UNITY in your church.
37. You may win a great person to Christ.
38. Today, with modern technology such as international air transport, a missionary can fly
to the mission field overseas in 24 hours. He can link up with national workers in third
world countries to train them, and provide them with tracts, Bibles, books and medical
clinics to win thousands of spiritually hungry people to Christ. He can be vaccinated
against malaria and other tropical diseases that killed thousands of missionaries last
century. We can print and distribute vast quantities of literature to win and train millions
of people for Christ and Bible truth.
39. The wealth that we have in the West can be used to multiply the gospel and to build
many churches in the Third World.
40. Developing countries are very open and hungry for the Gospel. We should take
advantage of these open doors in Africa, India, China, Philippines, Eastern Europe, and
South American countries to saturate these countries with literature, the gospel and true
Bible doctrine.
41. Our life’s goal should be great usefulness to God by doing Soul-Winning.
42. You may die tomorrow and have no more chances to do Soul-Winning.
43. You may be surprised by the prosperity that will come to you by Soul-Winning
hopefully this will get you excited about evangelism. Soul winning is a fun adventure. You get to tell others about Jesus and help them have eternal life in heaven . Pray for God to give you a passion for lost souls, and the boldness to tell them about Jesus !!!
have a blessed day,   Gary
