It started with Adam and ended with Jesus. Romans 5:12(AMP) says, “Therefore, as sin came into the world through one man, and death as the result of sin, so death spread to all men, [no one being able to stop it or escape it’s power] because all men sinned”. Adam’s sin separated us from God in the beginning. “For just as by one man’s disobedience, (failing to hear, heedlessness, and carelessness), the many were constituted sinners, so by one Man’s obedience the many will be constituted righteous, (made acceptable to God, brought into right standing with Him)” (Romans 5:19 AMP). We were helpless in getting back in fellowship with God, so Christ came at the right time for the ungodly (Romans 5:6). God showed His love towards us while we were still sinners Christ died for us (Romans 5:8).
God’s purpose is to bring man back into fellowship with Himself. James 5:20 states “let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save a soul from death and cover a multitude of sins”.
God has given the believer the ability to be an effective soul winner through:
- The Holy Spirit, which gives us the power to be, witnesses. (Acts 1:8)
- The Name of Jesus, which gives us the authority. (Philippians 2:9-11; Matthew 28:18-20).
- The Word, which gives us the knowledge.
We are a part of changing people’s eternal destiny (2 Corinthians 5:18, 19). The harvest of souls is great and the laborers are few, so we must pray for more laborers (Matthew 9:37, 38).
Therefore, we cannot allow anything to hinder us from winning souls even our negative thinking. Let God use you to change nations for the Glory of God!
