Someone with a heart attitude of concern for other peoples' eternal future.

One who sees people as Jesus sees them, as lost sheep living in a harvest field that needs to be reaped.

The soul winner then translates that heart of concern into action to reach the lost.

Some quick reasons why we should win souls.

  •  We are commanded

2 Co 5:18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;

  • We were saved to live for Christ.

2 Co 5:15 And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but to him which died for them, and rose again.

  • We are ambassadors for Christ.

2 Co 5:20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.

  • To be Christ minded.

Luke 2:49 And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?

  • There is only a limited time to where folks can be saved. This includes family members, friends, and other loved ones!

Jn 9:4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

  •  Will what your doing now matter for eternity?

2 Cr 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

  • Soul winners are wise.

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

  • Soul winning brings rewards.

1 Th 2:19 For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?

1Th 2:20 For ye are our glory and joy.

Dan 12:3 And they that be wise (Prov 11:30) shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

 

  • To prove you are not ashamed.

Rom 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

  •  To prove that you love the Lord.

Jn 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

  • Because it is the answer to the cry of the human soul.

Ps 142:4 I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was no man that would know me: refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul.

  •  To give glory to the father.

Mt 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your father which is in heaven.

Jn 15:8 herein is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.

  •  To be an answer to prayer.

Mt 9:38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

Lk 10:2 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.

  •  So that the Lord's work is not in vain.

Mal 3:14 Ye have said, It is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the LORD of hosts?

  •  To demonstrate that you are following the Lord. 

Mt 4:19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.

  •  Leading someone to Christ is the highest good you can do for anyone!

Jud 1:23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

  • It will make you happy!            

Ps 126:5 They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.

Ps 126:6 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

A soul winner should be a name used to describe every born again Child of God as it is God’s will for every born again Child of God to be one.   However, that is not the case.   Many disregard God's command to share the gospel causing not only themselves, but others to pay the ultimate consequences of their neglect.

       A soul  winner is one that ministers the gospel to others so that they might come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. This ministering can be done by prayer, a living testimony, word of mouth, giving, preaching, the reading and sharing of God’s Word, or whatever way the Holy Spirit chooses to communicate the message of the Saviour to the people of the world through you.

       A soul  winner is not necessarily just the person that successfully leads a person to Christ in prayer after witnessing.   A soul winner is a person that invites someone to Church, even if that person never comes and makes a decision for Christ.

       A soul winner is a person that leaves a gospel tract in a fast food restaurant's bathroom stall for someone later to see.

       A soul winner is a child that gives thanks for his food in front of an unsaved parent or loved one bringing conviction to that person's heart.

          So many people confuse the name "Soul winner" with someone that is like a "car salesmen type" person trying to sell off the gospel onto unwilling or naïve people.  Yes, we have something to share with the world, something that cannot be purchased; but only given freely by the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ. Yes, there are many unwilling and naïve people in this world that are lost (as well as all other types of people) in need of a Saviour.   Soul winning is not so much salesmanship, but rather obedience to God and having compassion on souls that have not yet heard the goods news that Christ has PAID IT IN FULL on their behalf.  If they would only receive it to their account, an eternity spent in hell can be avoided.    

  • Rom 10:13  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
  • Rom 10:14  How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
  • Rom 10:15  And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
  • Rom 10:16  But they have not all obeyed the gospel.

HERE ARE THE MAIN POINTS YOU WANT TO COVER WHEN SOUL WINNING

 Help them to realize they are a sinner. They must see that they are lost before they will understand they have a need to be saved. This is very important, as the next step is to show them their need to repent.

  • Explain to them that repentance is turning away from their sin, having a change of mind about it and a desire to be sorry and seek forgiveness from God whom they have  sinned against.
  • Something very important to share is that sin has a wage that must be paid. A wage that they on their own cannot satisfy, as it is impossible.
  • Once they have come to recognize their need to repent and seek forgiveness show them that God loved them while they were yet sinners, providing for them a way to be cleansed from all their unrighteousness and ultimately be saved from the consequences of their sins. An eternity spent apart from God in a devil’s hell.
  • Explain to them who the Saviour is, what He has done on their behalf. This would include Jesus introduced as the Son of God as well as God the Son, His life, His ministry and His finished work on the cross as well as His bodily resurrection.
  • Explain to them what this means, why it is so critical and how it applies to our lives today.
  • Finally explain to them the good news of what Christ has done as being a "Free Gift" and that it must simply be received by faith.
  • Explain to them that receiving this free gift would gain them salvation (becoming born-again out of their sin nature receiving a new nature = the nature of God) and eternal life, eternal life spent in Heaven.
  • If they are willing to receive Christ as Saviour, let them know you are willing to help them as they go to God in prayer.
  • Explain to them that prayer is simply talking to God and that repeating words does not save, it is the intent of their heart; they must mean what they are praying.
  • Ask them if they would like you to, lead them in prayer.
  • Once they have prayed to receive Christ as Saviour, share with them scripture to assure them that their salvation is secure and eternal.
  • Answer any questions they might have as the Holy Spirit gives you the words. If possible, ALWAYS USE SCRIPTURE to speak for itself.
  • Explain to them that Bible reading is very important and helps them to grow as a new believer.
  • Explain to them that they can pray and talk to God and by this they can gain a close personal relationship with Him. Be sure to tell them that this is what God desires as He loves them unconditionally.
  • Offer to help them to locate a new Chuirch home and explain to them why church membership is so important to their spiritual growth.(Be sure they understand that church membership does not "keep" them saved.)
  • If given a chance, explain to them why they should be scripturally baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Also explain that baptism is to be done AFTER salvation, not before or for salvation.
  • Perhaps give them materials, a free KJV or other literature to take with them. Ask them to share it with others after reading through it. 
  • Perhaps make plans to get together again with them for follow-up or to help with answering questions they may later have.
  • Offer/provide follow-up assistance.
  • If given the chance, maybe ask them if they have other family members or friends they know that you can be pointed to for the purpose of sharing Christ with them.
  • Thank them and offer to pray for them & any needs they may have shared with you while speaking with them. Let them know they can contact you any time via email or other means you agree too.
  • Add this individual (whether they receive Christ as Saviour or not) to your daily prayer list and be faithful in praying for them to grow in the knowledge and wisdom of God.
  • Praise God for giving you the privilege of sharing Him with someone in need.
  • Seek help of a Pastor, Bible Study teacher, Soul winning Leader or fellow believer if you need assistance in any way.

 God's Word, The Holy Bible, Says

There are 2 kinds of people in this world....
