There is a joy that accompanies soul winning. It just happens whenever a soul winner is privileged to lead a soul to Christ. I personally believe that since the hosts of heaven rejoice over the salvation of a soul, God allows the soul winner himself to partake of that great joy! The joy comes from the fact that a soul has been saved and even in the case where the soul winner does not get a positive response from the soul being ministered to, the fact that he is been obedient to the heavenly vision brings joy to his heart because he knows that the Father is pleased! We shall experience the climax of this when we stand before the Lord Jesus Christ on that glorious day!
For me, one of the things that gets me so greatly excited about soul winning is that, when we step out to reach the lost, we are most conscious of our partnership with the Lord. 2 Cor. 6:1 says “We then, as workers together with Him…” (NKJV). You want to get into a deeper experience with the Lord? Then be an active soul winner. There are many things a faithful soul winner never bother praying about, but the Lord ensures them because he is obedient to the heavenly vision – the very heartbeat of the Father God! No wonder Proverbs 11:30 says “The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, And he who wins souls is wise.” (NKJV). Permit me to say that by implication, he who doesn’t win souls is foolish! Just choose where to belong. I have chosen to be wise!
