On our first date back in 1974 my wife and I went soul-winning together on Clearwater beach. I remember it being warm and humid and the hippies were everywhere. Not only did I witness, I did some street (sand) preaching too and I scared Jeanie to death. These were the good old days for us. Do you know that God remembers every effort of soul-winning we did that night. I can’t remember every word but God does. Every effort in soul-winning we do in Jesus Name is Never in vain.

 

“The Bible teaches that those who plant seeds will receive an equal reward, to those who actually have the privilege of leading that soul to Christ down the road. 1st Corinthians 3:8 states, “Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.” Our labor is NEVER in vain in the Lord. Everything that we do for Jesus’ sake and the Gospel’s will be rewarded. In fact, Jesus said that anything we do even in a disciple’s name will be rewarded, “And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.” So anything we do to help the man of God, a church, or another Christian, will be rewarded. If God is going to hold us accountable for every idle word spoken, then you can count on it that He will reward us for even the most seemingly insignificant acts of faith.”
