Never underestimate the power of personal witnessing to not only win souls, but inspire and encourage your own heart, set you on fire and keep you alive spiritually as you battle right on the front line in the Hell holes of the Devil to rescue lost sheep!
“The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself” (Pro.11:25). Witnessing in itself is a form of reward and blessing and encouragement, and it inspires our own hearts as we watch the Lord work. It will not only be worth it all when we see Jesus, but it’s worth it all right now to see the wonderful, thrilling and satisfying results of our labors!
Everyone we witness to, we’re wooing them in the Spirit.–Wooing and loving and sowing the seed of God’s Word in the Spirit. We can’t win them all!–But God will give us enough to keep us encouraged, so we won’t quit!–And those we do win are worth it all!
“Seldom can a heart be lonely,
If it seeks a lonelier still.
Self-forgetting, seeking only
Emptier cups of love to fill!”
–The more you give, the more He will give you!
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (Jn.3:16).
Jesus made the way for us to be saved when He climbed Mount Calvary and died alone for the sins of the world! That was a price that He alone could pay for you and me!–But He did it!
“Hereby perceive we the love of God, because He laid down His life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren” (1Jn.3:16).
Jesus alone could save us, but He cannot save us alone.–If we’re really saved we’re going to want to take others with us. We can’t work for our own Salvation, but we can work for the Salvation of others! These works are not required for Salvation, but they will come as works of love and labors of love for the Lord! They’re a manifestation of Salvation and your love for the Lord and others! Once we get saved, the most important job each of us has is to give our lives daily in loving concern and care for others! Jesus came to love the world, and He calls us to do likewise in every facet of our lives!
