Soul Winning is Not A Spiritual Gift

The command to evangelize appears in all four gospels, with Christ speaking in three different locations.  It’s also the last command Christ gave His disciples before ascending into heaven.  Obviously, He was serious about this mission — this mission that ALL Christians are commanded to undertake.  Please note the emphasis on “all,” because I want to make a very important point here.  Soul winning is not a spiritual gift!  Repeat.  Soul winning is not a spiritual gift!  Although it’s true some members of the body of Christ are gifted with special abilities in this area,  we are all commanded to “go,” to “baptize,” and to “teach.”

“Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.  And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”‘  Matthew 28:18-20

An interesting point here…  The book of Matthew begins (1:23) with the angel informing Joseph that the Messiah’s name will be “Immanuel” (God with us).  The book ends with Jesus confirming that he will be with us “to the very end of the age.”  He may be sending us outside of our comfort zone, but He isn’t sending us out alone!  This being true, why will most of us go to our graves still able to count the souls we’ve won to Christ on one hand?

In Christ,

For years now I’ve been learning a little more about Jesus each and every day. I suppose I’ve learned more than the average person, but surely I’ll not understand all of His teachings while I’m in th
