But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world. [Galatians 6:14]

THE IMPORTANCE OF SOUL-WINNING
Every person you meet will either be saved or perish. People of the world will perish without Jesus Christ.[Rom 6:23] But God is not willing that any should perish. [1 Tim. 2:4 ; 2 Pet. 3:9]
Soul-winning should be the focus of every believer. There should be no lack of urgency to reach others and yet, we live in a selfish, narcisstic, "I" centered society. Someone once said that if we really believed in the horror and pain of a fiery, devils hell, then we would crawl across broken glass to tell one poor, lost soul about Jesus--who [Jesus] is the only way to escape an eternity in the awful place called hell.
Soul winners are wise. [Prov. 11:30] Soul winners are partners with the Lord. [2 Cor. 6:1] Soul winners will shine brightly. [Daniel 12:3] Soul winners are happy people. [Psalm 126:5-6] Soul winners cover a multitude of sins. [James 5:19-20]
Jesus Christ commanded all Christians to go and make disciples.[Matt.28:19-20] Jesus love for me and my love for Him compels me to be a soul-winner.[John 14:15, 21]
It is written in the Jewish Talmud that God has said " In every place where you find the imprint of men's feet, there am I."
" For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." [John 3:16]
