KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 25:16. Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents.
Every mango seed is a complete plantation of mango trees. This mango seed could be despised and thrown away, yet within it is its own survival. The Bible said the man who received five talents went and traded with it, and obtained a hundred-fold returns. Dear brother or sister, stop looking outside for success. Your success is within you. GO out there and make use of your gifts and God given abilities to impact on lives.
Soul winning is an aspect of our lives that the Lord expects us to make great impact. There are some brethren who are very successful in winning the lost and others are not so successful, yet each one must do his or her part. Do it with all the passion for the lost. Do it in reliance on the Holy Spirit. Your results are always depended on the special ability granted to you. When the Lord called His disciples to follow Him. He said to them, follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. Joining brethren in fellowship and doing the word is to make us fishers of men. Our rewards before the father would be mainly due to how many men, or women we were able to fish for the master.
The Lord emphasised this point in the following verse, John 15:16. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatsoever you shall, the father in my name, Dear brother or sister, no matter whatever you may be doing in life, never forget that you have become a child of God, and that you are a Fisher of men.
THOUGHT: WINNING MEN FOR CHRIST SURPASSES ALL ACHIEVMENTS
Proverbs 11:30. The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.
Matthew 4:19. And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
