God Will Use You

What a blessing it is to see that God will use you! We went out door-knocking again last night and 6 of our 8 students from the soul-winning classes went. (the others will go with us on Saturday they are out of town). One of the men had the pleasure of leading a man to the Lord (his first) when we returned to the church excitement filled the air as we gave testimony of our visits.
For all you who say that door to door visitation and soul winning wont work. Don't tell my folks they have already "bought in" that it does. We are just trying to be faithful to do what the Lord commanded, and I have found that the Lord blesses faithfulness.

"Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me and to finish his work. Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? Behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest."--John 3:34,35.

"After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come. Therefore said he unto them, the harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest."--Luke 10:1,2.

"They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him."--Ps. 126:5,6.

"The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise."--Prov. 11:30.

Sinners are everywhere. Like ripened fields of standing grain, they wait for someone to come in mercy and bring the harvest in.

{Bring them in, Bring them in,
Bring them in from the fields of sin.
Bring them in, Bring them in.
Bring the wandering ones to Jesus.}

Andrew brought his brother to Christ. Philip helped the eunuch get saved. Peter led Cornelius and his whole family to the Lord. Paul showed Lydia, the Philippian jailer, Timothy and many others what to do. Jesus personally dealt with the Samaritan woman, Nicodemus, Zacchaeus and a multitude of others.
The Bible clearly shows that people are everywhere and the Gospel is their only hope. The great need is for those who have the light to share it with those in darkness.
" . . .And how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher [witness]?" (Rom. 10:14).
Thousands of people would like to be saved if Christians would only take time to win them.

Those that I have gone out with to seek the lost, I have had the greatest fellowship with. There is no greater way to build friendships. Praise God for you report!

Praise the Lord! It's good to hear that the Lord is blessing your efforts. Isn't it good to see the fruits from the the ones that are allowing the Lord to use them?
