Soul Winning
By Jeremiah Tatum

   Have you ever been asked to define yourself…to use words to represent who you are and what you believe in?  Have you ever been asked to describe your dreams, and tell everyone what matters to you most?
  If I were asked these questions, it would be very easy for me to answer them.
  Where I live is inconsequential.  How much money I make, is not important.  What people choose to think or believe about me—only significant as far as the gospel needs the proper support to make a difference in lives.
  I want to be defined as a soul winner.  When people think of me, I want them to know that I care enough about their salvation to help them work theirs out while I work out my own.  I believe in the
Bible.  I believe in its saving power.  I believe in His plan.  I believe in the church.  And, I believe in people.  I believe they are changeable.  I believe they need Jesus.
  My dreams are simple. I want to go to heaven, and I want everybody to go with me.  That, in my opinion, is the description of soul winning.  And, if you ask me, I think it is the only thing that matters.

  “For if I preach the gospel, I have nothing to boast of, for necessity is laid upon me: yes, woe is me if I do not preach the gospel! ~ 1 Corinthians 9:16

  “What doeth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works?  Can faith save him?”  James 2:14

“Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.”   James 2:18
