“Sticks and stones may break your bones, but words will never harm me.” This is the old rhyme that children often repeat to show their toughness when others are calling them names. However great this rhyme may sound, it is one of the biggest lies that comes from anyone’s lips. Words do harm, and what we say will hurt. Whether or not we mean what we said, we should always be careful about the words that come from our mouth.
It is my hope that the title of this article may have already sparked a thought about the Great Commission. As Christians we have one main purpose on this earth, to “seek and save that which is lost”. It is to carry on the very work of Christ. We are striving to be Christlike, and he already set the example for seeking and saving the Lost. Soul Winning is the work we are called to do, and the purpose for which we are intended to fulfill. Throughout the New Testament you will often find that when one accepted Christ, the first thing you see that individual doing is sharing Christ with others! It is the first purpose presented to the disciples as Christ called them into the ministry of being “fishers of men”!
