Benefits Of Soul Winning

I never knew that soul winning had so many benefits until one of my pastors shared some of the benefits with us in church and I shall be using this medium to share them with you. The benefits of soul winning are:

DIVINE BREAKTHROUGH:
The divine breakthrough enjoyed here is for both parties. In my church, so many testimonies have been gotten via the platform of soul winning. When Christ went out for soul winning, every of his words had power. This power brought about a net-breaking draught of fishes in the same river that Peter couldn’t catch anything all night.
We have a fair God who loves fairness and justice. Had it been that Peter didn’t catch anything when Christ asked him to cast his net into the river, he wouldn’t have given his life to Christ and as such, died a sinner. Just try to imagine what would have happened on judgement day if Peter was to say he refused to give his life to Christ because there was no evidence to show that He was Christ. This same thing can happen with you. All you need is to speak and things would just start happening because God wouldn’t want anyone who refuses to give his life to Christ to have a commanding excuse as the one stated above.

DIVINE BEAUTIFICATION: Most people do not go out for evangelism or for soul winning because of shyness or some minor limitations but the simple truth is that whenever you go out for soul winning{with understanding}, you would be beautified by God just as the bible recorded, ‘And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever'[Daniel 12:3].

DIVINE PROTECTION: The scriptures says, ‘…Go ye into the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved. And these sign shall follow them that believe: in my name shall they cast out devils, they shall speak with new tongue; They shall take up serpents and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them and they shall lay their hands on the sick and they shall recover'[Matthew 16:15-18].

DIVINE HEALTH: Immediately you got born again, that scripture above is being directed to you and as such, you are being seen as a messenger or an ambassador. The bible says, ‘A wicked messenger falleth into mischief: but a faithful ambassador is health'[Proverbs 13:17].

PRAYER ANSWERS: One of the conditions attached to prayer answers is soul winning- ‘Ye have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and ordained you, that ye should in and bring forth fruit{win souls} and that your fruit remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the father in my name, he may give it you'[John 15:16]

DIVINE WISDOM: The bible says, he that winneth souls is wise. I do love scriptures which sound like this. It very apt and direct. That passage simply means that if you are able to win souls for christ, whether you like it or not, wisdom has been deposited in you.

Wow! Soul winning really pays. Start now!!!

Benefits Of Having Spiritual Gifts

Have you ever thought of the benefits you tend to enjoy when you spiritual gifts? Have you ever reasoned whether the benefits of having spiritual gifts are only spiritually driven? I have to share this benefits with you to enable you answer every question you have based on spiritual gifts. The benefits of having spiritual gifts are:

IT DISTINGUISHES YOU:
Spiritual gifts has the ability of distinguishing you from others and also from who you were to who you are currently. When the spirit in Elijah rested on Elishah, everyone noticed the difference. Also when the spirit of God came upon Saul, everyone said, ‘…Is Saul also among the prophets?'[ 1 Samuel 10:12]. When the spirit of God came upon the apostles, they became dynamic. Due to the spirit of God in the life of Daniel, ‘he was found ten times better than all the magicians & astrologers that were in the realm'[Daniel 1:20].


IT BUILDS YOU SPIRITUALLY:
Christianity without spiritual gifts is always boring and it brings about frustrations and backsliding but when you have spiritual gifts, you are being encouraged to do more in order to get more and become better.

Having spiritual gifts puts you in the position of walking with God.

YOU BECOME USEFUL: Everyone wants to be and also enjoys being useful in any environment. Just as the hand need the mouth to feed and the leg to walk because it can’t do all these alone, so also anyone with a spiritual gift becomes useful in the church. You might be gifted to lead, teach, prophecy, interpret tongues etc. Your usefulness doesn’t end in the church. Daniel was useful as a politician to different regimes of government because of the gift of wisdom in him. Joseph was also useful to the entire world during the time of famine due to the spiritual gifts in him.

IT BRINGS ABOUT FRUITFULNESS: When you pray in tongues[a spiritual gift] you get more results. Daniel, Joseph, all the apostles, etc were all fruitful and productive due to the spiritual gifts they had.

CREDIBILITY: Without spiritual gifts, it becomes very difficult for people to accept you as a born-again christian or even as a pastor. People want to see you prophesy, perform miracles, etc

FULFILMENT OF DESTINY: Everyone want to become successful in life. Due to the spiritual gift of wisdom, Daniel was a successful scholar and also a politician, Joseph realised his dreams due to the spiritual gift in him.

I hope this post was helpful. Please feel free to ask questions and also contribute via the comment box. Thanks

Understanding Spiritual Gifts

There are several spiritual gifts being given out by God to born again christians.

All these gifts come from the same spirit and the spirit is called The Holy Spirit.

‘Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same spirit'[1 Corinthians 12:4].

After anyone receives Christ, at least one spiritual gift must be given to that person and this gift would serve as a sign.

‘Wherefore tongues{and other gifts} are for a sign…'[1 Corinthians 14:22].

Different gifts are for different purposes and God distributes these gift at His own will.

‘But all these worketh, that one and the selfsame spirit, dividing to everyone as He will'[1 Corinthians 12:11].

Spiritual gifts are not permanent.

‘…whether there be prophecies, they shall fail: whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away'[1 Corinthians 13:8].

Having a spiritual gift is not a guarantee that you will make heaven.

You can ask God for any particular spiritual gift and receive it.

‘But covet earnestly the best gift…'[1 Corinthians 12:31]

Spiritual gifts can be impacted from one person on another in different dimensions. Elijah impacted his on Elishah in double dimensions. Moses also impacted on Joshua. Paul also did.

‘And when Paul had laid his hands on them, the Holy Ghost came on them: and they spake with tongues and prophesied'[Acts 19:6].
