What’s Your Evidence? – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional August 21st

(Prove Your Love By Winning Souls)

TO THE BIBLE: 2 Corinthians 5:19 TLB
“…God was in Christ, restoring the world to himself, no longer counting men’s sins against them but blotting them out. This is the wonderful message he has given us to tell others.”

“Eric, let’s go out and win souls,” Jessica told Eric over the phone.
“All right!” “I’m delighted you said so,” he exclaimed.
“I appreciate your enthusiastic response, Eric; thank you!”
“Oh, no need to thank me; I love Jesus, and telling others about Him is the most important thing.”

Our job to take the Gospel everywhere is something that all of heaven takes seriously. Sadly, many don’t understand how serious this really is.

There’re Christians who are still asking whether or not someone who doesn’t win souls will go to heaven. The question to ask such people is, “If someone doesn’t love God or Jesus, will that person go to heaven?” That’s not going to happen.

1 John 5:1 NIV says, “Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well.” If you truly love the Father, then you love the Lord Jesus. And the proof and evidence of your love for Him is keeping His commandments—His Word (John 14:15).

Remember, His Word says, “…Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15). So, you keep that word by being a soul-winner.

Someone else might ask, “How about those who lived before Jesus came and didn’t quite have the opportunity to express their love for Him?” They had the Word of God—His laws and commandments.
Job said, “I have not departed from the commandment of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food” (Job 23:12). Jesus is the Word become flesh (John 1:14). Hallelujah!

Thus, every one of them had a clear opportunity to express their love for Him. Your love and commitment to the Lord must reflect and be evident in your dedication to the preaching of the Gospel.
