(“He who wins souls is wise.” Proverbs 11:30 NKJV)

Dear Readers:

I’m so glad you stopped by. We’re going to explore fact that it can be exciting to join a soulwinning team.

“Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you; spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life.” This is a quote by Amy Poehler of Saturday Night Live. I’m not a big Saturday Night Live fan, but the quote is very appropriate for what it can be like for a team of soulwinners to win souls.

I’ve been retired now for about two years. I can tell you that I felt, and sometimes still feel lost without the goal of working with an on-the-job team of workers. Also, in the last year the Covid virus has separated us from friends and family . . . part of our teams if you will.

Becoming an older adult should not deprive us from being part of a team, nor should some other perceived barrier. Teamwork is not just for young players in high school or college sports. We ALL need to be part of a team that strategizes, and gives energy toward meeting a goal, or goals. We ALL have skills that can contribute to team successes. We ALL would benefit by giving each other high-fives when goals are met, as we see so often in sporting events.

Why aren’t we all part of soulwinning teams? I don’t understand the barrier. I don’t understand the barrier in my own life. Jesus made it clear his goal that his followers win souls and make disciples.

I think Satan has a hand in it. He is perfectly content and very happy if none of us becomes active to become a part of a team to win souls. I think he relishes the fact that we think that we can merely be a good, and even religious person without ever delving into the nitty gritty of what it takes to win souls to Jesus Christ.

I’m not talking about formal soulwinning programs and campaigns. I am talking instead about changing our mindset toward a soulwinning culture . . . one that places a great emphasis on prayer and actions toward reaching our loved ones, friends, and others for Christ.

There can be great power, joy, and excitement in being part of a team to win souls. I think there might even be some high-fives.

See you next time,
