Let Love Lead In Winning Souls For Heaven
LET LOVE LEAD IN WINNING SOULS FOR HEAVEN
Galatians 5:13 "For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another."
The work that JESUS CHRIST gave us after His resurrection is the preaching of the Gospel to all humanity. Mark 16:15 "And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." Acts 1:8 "But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth."
However, it is practically impossible to preach the Gospel of salvation, repentance, faith, forgiveness and truth etc to the sinners (any one without JESUS CHRIST in truth, holiness and righteousness) out there without LOVE 1 John 4:20.
The gift of salvation from sin, which GOD offered us through JESUS CHRIST was born out of love. John 3:16 "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."
GOD, the Bible says is love 1 John 4:8. So, until you come to this truth, you can never win any soul for the kingdom of GOD.
Despite our sin and wickedness against GOD, He loved us while we were yet sinners. Romans 5:8 "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
Love, the Bible says is kind 1 Corinthians 13:4-13. How can you demonstrate unkindness towards the sinners around you and you expect to win them for CHRIST?
Even at that, JESUS said "Love your enemies" Matthew 5:44. However, with the attitudes of so many supposed Christians today, we desired the immediate death and destruction to our 'imagined' enemies. We were pure enemies of GOD, yet He still loved us and draw us to Himself by the blood of JESUS CHRIST Ephesians 2:11-13. We must repent from this wickedness if we must win the sinners out there for JESUS CHRIST.
Even Apostle Paul declared in Romans 12:20 "Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head." Some of us think and conclude that the coal of fire talked about here is wishing your enemies death, no, it simply implied that by your good gesture towards the people that called themselves or make themselves your enemy, their conscience will become their own tormenter and troubler, and peace will definitely elude them except they eventually repent by accepting JESUS CHRIST as their LORD and saviour. This is because 'no peace for the wicked says the LORD Isaiah 48:22.
So, do you want to see that Muslim friend, that rapist, that 419, that armed robber, those terrorists, those sex slaves, those atheist, those homosexuals and lesbians in heaven? Then start preaching and ministering the salvation message to them now IN LOVE.
God bless you all.
