Theme: One Saint, One Soul
Topic: Soul Winning – The Last Hour
1 Corinthians 7:25-31
1 John 2:18
“Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.”
What will you do if you knew you had just one month to live? Will your bank account matter to you? Will you be concerned with your job, business, ministry, social status or political correctness? Will you rearrange your list of priorities? Will you adjust your schedules? Will the things that matter to you now still matter? Well, truth is, we are in the last hour, (1 John 2:18).
It is very sad to observe that most people live life as though this world is a permanent arrangement. We live as if our relatives, extended families, friends and loved ones are fixed on earth forever. Paul sounded a strong caution in Romans 13:11 that, “And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.” Yes, now is the time of salvation for our families, relations and loved ones. Let’s reach out to them.
Reinhard Bonnke said that the gospel is eternal, but we do not have eternity to preach it. Paul again exclaimed that “…the time is short…” (1 Corinthians 7:29). Be instant in season and out of season, sharing the gospel with others.
Pray that you will add a sense of urgency to your soul-winning drive as you go out there to win souls for Christ.
