Winning souls for Christ can be a bit intimidating for many of us. All kinds of thoughts, or fears, arise in our minds when we think of sharing the gospel with others.
We want desperately for souls to be saved, but sometimes when we don’t see those we pray for come to faith in Christ, our hopes wane. We begin to wonder, “Does God still save souls?” “Will He save my loved one?” “What will it take to see God save a soul?” “Will God use me in such a way?”
All our fears, and let’s just be honest, our doubts, boil down to the question, “Will He, or won’t He?”
Thankfully, God has given us so many assurances in His Word, so many promises for winning souls for Christ. May these promises be used to fan the flame of desire in your heart to go out and share the gospel with all who will listen!

Promises for Winning Souls for Christ
Any task is easier if we are assured of success, wouldn’t you say? No one likes to feel like what they are doing isn’t going to be worth the effort.
It’s no different when thinking of serving the Lord. We who know Jesus as our Saviour long to serve Him and know that what we are doing pleases Him. We want our efforts to be effective, to bear fruit, to make a difference for His kingdom.
When we go out to share the gospel we want to know that our efforts are not in vain. That God WILL save souls as we are obedient to His command.
Thankfully, we can be fully convinced! Take a look at some of God’s assurances to us, His promises for winning souls for Christ.

These promises of God keep me motivated and faith-filled that God is saving souls, will save souls, and will use even me as a messenger of the gospel. For it is His will and purpose to do so!
And guess what? These promises are for you, too!

For more teaching and study on these soul winning promises from God, see pages 35-39 in the companion study book, Through Open Doors: Unlocking the Mystery of Soul Winning.
What we may see as impossible, God sees as no big deal.
We may feel like nothing is happening when we seek to share the gospel, but we can trust the promises of God. He IS at work. And our labor is NOT in vain. Whether we see the fruit of it right now…or when we get to Heaven.
My hope is that I will have “surprises” in Heaven, souls I shared the gospel with who later received Christ as Saviour. And if you are sharing the gospel, you will get to one day meet your “surprises”! What a day that will be!
