Soul Warning, not Soul Winning

Sometimes we can spend our time working hard for the Lord, is it worth it you might ask?  Of course it is worth it!

There may be a day, a week, a time, when you feel you aren't getting anywhere.

Just remember, God rewards efforts, our labors, not necessarily results only.

The Widow

'And he looked up, and saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury.  And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites.  And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast in more than they all:  for all these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had.' Luke 21:1-4

The rich men cast their gifts into the treasury, and the poor widow gave what she had.  In wordly terms, what the widow gave did not appear to be much, and in wordly terms, it was not much, but in the eyes of the Lord, because she put in the effort, the sacrifice, to the Lord, she gave more than all of them combined.

Supposing you have a billionnaire, who gives away a million to charity.  For sure, that million will do a LOT for people.  Supposing you have yourself, or myself, we don't have much, we go out and spend the day handing out Gospel tracts, working with our time and energy, our effort on something for the Lord.

For a millionnaire to part with a million takes seconds, and the effort, and sacrifice is low.  For you or I, or anyone, to give up their time and put in effort and sacrifice to do something for the Lord, this matters to Him.

Soulwarning

And so it is with soulwarning.  We all would like to lead souls to Christ, soulwinning, it's a tremendous joy when it happens, however, it isn't something to be expected to happen very often.  We can at least tell people how to go to Heaven, we may not win a soul, but we can still warn souls.  In the eyes of the Lord, we have worked for Him.
