Preach the gospel at all times and, if necessary, use words (Saint Francis from Assisi)
Our planet, the earth, is populated by approximately
6,3 billion people. All of them are different and yet in many ways
they are identical. Every person has a sinful body which causes him
or her a lot of problems.
The Scriptures also tell us that in Matthew 5:14-16: “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven."
It is the righteousness of God which radiates from these people and convicts others as a result. There is a question which needs to be posed to each individual. The following question is directed to each person: "Is the gospel preached indirectly through our life style or can we only persuade, that is, convince other people through words?" If the question can be answered with a clear "Yes", then we have fulfilled the great commission which we have received from our Lord when he said, "...Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." (Mark 16:15).
Therefore, live a holy and God-fearing life, so that you can be a soul winner!(sw)
