Why Christians Must Win Souls

Why Christians Must Win Souls

Soul-winning is the major goal of Christianity.

Sometimes, as a result of the burdens some Christians shoulder in attempt to win souls for Christ, one might be forced to seek the reasons why soul-winning is so important to a devote.

No wonder the scripture says in the book of John 15:8 that you bear much fruit so that you will known as disciple of Lord, Jesus Christ.

Before I dive into the benefits of soul-winning, I will love to point at few of the benefits of being recognized as a Christian.

1. Being recognized as a Christian does increase the chance of prayer becoming answered.

2. Being recognized as a Christian does increase the chance of joining the rapture.

3. Being recognized as a Christian does increase the chance of enjoying a rightful deliverance.

4. Being recognized as a Christian does increase the chance of enjoying Christian brotherhood.

5. Being recognized as a Christian does increase the chance of approaching every situations of life with confidence.

From my personal perspective, I will now list few reasons why Christians shoulder the responsibility of soul-winning:

1. Winning souls for Christ adds value to the religion called Christianity.

2. Winning souls for Christ shows Christians appreciation for Jesus Christ's crucifixion.

3. Winning souls for Christ strengthens a Christian's hope for eternal life.

4. Winning souls for Christ further promotes the church and the gospel of Jesus Christ.

5. Winning souls for Christ shows that the message and teaching of Jesus Christ is effective and everlasting.

How Hopelessness Enters Christians' Life

How Hopelessness Enter Christians' Life

Hopelessness is serpentine. It is deceptive. It is a friendly foe. It is an uninvited guest that burgles into a brighter soul and cart away all potentials; leaving the victim with unfulfilled destiny.

Have you ever wondered what could be responsible for someone's decision to commit suicide?

The answer to the question is hopelessness. Yes, a chronic hopelessness.

Everyone was divinely bestowed the heart of gold. Synonymously, you can use other words such as bravery, heroism, confidence, etc.

Satan or maybe carelessness is responsible for replacing people's heart of gold with hopelessness via unforeseen disastrous circumstance(s).

Thank God that people's hopelessness can diagnosed thus:

In a victim, what are the symptoms of hopelessness? Where can hopelessness be found in a victim?

In the faith (not trusting the scripture nor believing in God)

In the face (an always frowned face)

In the act (a constant inferior act)

In the heart (always afraid of everything)

In the tongue (negatively oriented)

In the status (totally resigned to poverty, dislikes reading and learning)

In the health (never physically fit yet hates the gym)

In the hygiene (always with smelly armpit, feet, teeth, plus odour emitting underneath the panties)

In the grooming (habitual unkempt hair, bushy beard, musky skin)

In the wardrobe (wearing crumpled clothes and unpolished shoes)

For any christian with the opportunity to see this post, it's never too late to start making changes.

For the scripture says in Hebrews 10:23 "Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering for HE who promised is faithful".

Have Come A Long Way

Have Come A Long Way
I have compassion for these people; they have already been with me three days and have nothing...

For the sake of this post, lets assume that life is like a teritory and for the sake of this post, lets agree that seeking the face of Jesus Christ is like a very long travel. When the journey is long, the distance will matter-less in as much as the journey is rewarding.

According to the scripture, Jesus understands the joy of been rewarded after a very long journey. Therefore, HE said, in the book of Mark 8:2-10

Whose Minds Are In Dark?

Whose Minds Are In Dark?
If we see a rapper with dark sun glasses, long beaming pendants, rapping in and...

Starting from our early exposure to religion, we were made to know the difference between good and evil. We hear things like Jesus Christ is good and Satan is evil.

Even in those early days, we were made to understand that the good treasures white color while the evil treasures black color; that is the reason why angels wore white with trumpet in their mouths whereas the devil was painted black with horn above the head.

If we see erotic movie and the characters are dressed in black top and black jeans_ trust me, we'll care less because they are secular characters with secular goals.

The Best Tool For Any Christian

As wealthy as monopoly has made many nations, organisations and individuals; there is yet...

Many nations of the world, many organizations and many business people have taken seriously the use of monopoly. The truth is that monopoly has helped the adopters of such economic system in amassing wealth except that such wealth doesn't circulate.

Monoply always implies greediness and self-centeredness_ yes, that's one of monopoly's demerits.

As wealthy as monopoly has made many nations, organisations and individuals; there is yet any that surpass the wealth of King Solomon

The Darkness Inside The Fish Belly

The Darkness Inside The Fish Belly
A person will be left with shambling acts and groping tracks or trails...

You sure know the story but if possible you don't already know the story then here is it.

Jonah 1:1-3 says, "The word of the Lord came to Jonah son of Amittai: “Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach against it, because its wickedness has come up before me.”

But Jonah ran away from the Lordand headed for Tarshish. He went down to Joppa, where he found a ship bound for that port. After paying the fare, he went aboard and sailed for Tarshish to flee from the Lord."
By the time the story got to verse 17, Jonah landed in the fish belly; "Now the Lord provided a huge fish to swallow Jonah, and Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights."

Jonah's disobedience earned him nothing but suffering and waste of time and energy. An errand from God is never a suggestion but a command_ the wise messengers simply comply while the arrogant ones suffer bruises from wraths of God before they comply.

When God askes someone to do something but the person refuses, such a person will be left with shambling acts and groping tracks or trails. Except or until compliance, the person slumbers through life and lives through fish-belly-like darkness as Jonah did.

Most errands from earthly authorities are tasks leaving the messenger with choice of  either success or failure (examples of such earthly errands are found in Odyssey).

How To Get The Best Wine

How To Get The Best Wine

From experience, I'm guessing most people response would be "the wine is good..."

Life is occasion and occasion is life. In any earthly gathering of celebration, wine is one of the things that set attendees in a party mood_ meaning that wine is good.

If our living on this earth is like an occasion or a party, then it's time for you to examine your life and tell how awesome has the wine been so far. From experience, I'm guessing most people response would be "the wine is good", "the wine is not so good", "the wine is sometimes good and sometimes bad".

John 2:1-10 says, On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. When the wine was gone, Jesus’ mother said to him, “They have no more wine.”

Looking At The Wrong Directions

Many nations of the world are suffering. The suffering in question doesn't even limit to non-christian nations but mixture of both Christian and Non-Christian nations.

The major cause of the suffering is less to do with bad governance or wrongly administered policies. The cause is that nations are looking at the wrong direction_ what they see and focus their attention on aren't what they supposed to focus their attention and glorify.

Few of those are Apocalypse, Illuminati, Same-Gender Marriage, hoodies and fraternities, etc. The one dollar question is "despite the attention given to the listed above, which nation has positively transformed from the glorification of such subjects?" Rather they motivate greed, expand the scope of criminalities, hijack all channels to morality, drag nations and humanity backwards by unearthing the arts that were long buried (example: witchcraft and wizardry, idolary and paganism, historical mysteries and ancient lores, etc).

Luke 19:1-7 says, "Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through. A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy. He wanted to see who Jesus was, but because he was short he could not see over the crowd. So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree to see him, since Jesus was coming that way.
When Jesus reached the spot, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today.” So he came down at once and welcomed him gladly.
All the people saw this and began to mutter, “He has gone to be the guest of a sinner."

Not until all living souls start  looking inwardly to Jesus Christ, the trouble s of life will be softened. The life of Zacchaeus was positively transformed the day he focused his attention on Jesus Christ.
