Would You Like To Be...

The Soul Winner?

"The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and he who wins souls is wise." Proverbs 11:30

Read on to find out what it takes to be a soul winner!

The Prince of Preachers, Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-92), makes two statements at the beginning of his classic work "The Soul Winner". Statement 1: Soul winning is the chief business of the Christian minister. Statement 2: Soul winning should be the main pursuit of every true believer. Would you agree with these bold declarations? Let's find out.

With regard to Statement 1, there is probably little disagreement among Christians. The professional clergyman is expected to engage in evangelism regularly -- from the pulpit, in his office, and wherever he happens to go during the day. After all, it's his "calling" and fulltime occupation. It's what he's being paid to do, isn't it?

But with regard to Statement 2, what do you make of that? Should evangelism be the main pursuit of every true believer?

Before we answer that question, let's ask a related one: How many Christians do you know for whom this statement applies? Do you know any believers that take evangelism that seriously? So seriously, in fact, that you could say it is their "main pursuit", i.e. their Number One Priority in life.

I'm trying really hard right now to come up with a list of people I know personally that fit that description, and I think I can count them on one hand. Hmmm. How about you? Yet Charles Spurgeon says it should be the Number One Priority of every true believer. I challenge you to let the weight of this statement rest upon you.

How could one of the greatest preachers of modern history say such a thing? After all, doesn't he understand that the average Christian has to make a living, love his/her spouse, raise the kids, pay for college and save for retirement, and somewhere in the midst of that hectic life, take time to relax and enjoy himself?

What possessed Spurgeon to place such expectations upon us? I think the answer to that question lies in Spurgeon's understanding of a simple biblical truth that the 21st century evangelical church is slowly losing sight of: Judgment Day. Could it be that we are not as concerned about the final destiny of the lost as we should be?

Oh, that God would grant us an ever increasing and always unswerving commitment to persuade people to "Kiss the Son, lest He be angry and you be destroyed in your way, for His wrath can flare up in a moment" (Psalm 2:12 NIV).
