I can take you to the well through the teaching of the word but I can’t make you drink the water, you have to do that for yourself but I can tell you that the water from this well is the water of life.
Mark 1:15 (KJV) And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel...
I’m sure we all ask ourselves this question but the answer is quite simple really. The Kingdom is built one soul at a time.
Romans 14:17 (KJV) For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
If you evangelize and through that evangelization a person is saved then you have retrieved a soul from the grip of Satan.
Our responsibility is to get the Gospel out to the world and when one becomes saved, it is like leading one to the well, whilst we can lead someone to the well, it is they who have to drink the water, this water is the water of life. we are not responsible for the saving process only God does that working through us but we do not do it of ourselves.
It is written in Paul’s letter to the Colossians
” Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son“.
Our job is to reach into the gates of hell and hope that through our words souls may be saved from the eternal torment. That is why we have to evangelize to the lost. In order to get people into the Kingdom so that they may receive the Salvation promised by our Lord.
We must evangelize in order to get people , then we must ground the saved in the teaching of the word so that they may go out into the world and together with us may fulfil the great commission.
Remember my dear friends there is plenty of room in heaven for the saved but there’s no room for the damned.
