"He that winneth souls is wise" (Proverbs 11:30)

"The Wisdom of Soul-Winning"



Today, let us explore the profound wisdom encapsulated in the biblical statement, "He that winneth souls is wise" (Proverbs 11:30). In these simple yet profound words, we find a timeless truth that speaks to the essence of our Christian calling: the imperative to share the message of salvation and lead others to Christ. As we embark on this journey of understanding, may our hearts be open to the wisdom that guides us in fulfilling this sacred duty.


The pursuit of wisdom is a central theme in the Bible. From the wisdom literature of Proverbs to the teachings of Jesus Christ, we are continually reminded of the importance of seeking divine wisdom in all aspects of our lives. However, there is a particular wisdom that surpasses all others—the wisdom of soul-winning. This wisdom is not merely intellectual or philosophical but is deeply rooted in love, compassion, and a fervent desire for the salvation of souls.


  1. Understanding Soul-Winning: a. Soul-winning is not merely about adding numbers to our congregations but about leading others to a transformative encounter with Jesus Christ. It involves sharing the message of God's love and redemption with those who are lost and broken, offering them hope and healing in Christ. b. Soul-winning requires intentionality and perseverance. It is a deliberate effort to reach out to others, build relationships, and demonstrate the transformative power of the Gospel through both word and deed. c. Soul-winning is ultimately a partnership with God. While we are called to be faithful witnesses, it is the Holy Spirit who convicts hearts and draws people to Himself. Our role is to be vessels through which God's grace and love flow to those in need.

  2. The Wisdom of Soul-Winning: a. Soul-winning is wise because it aligns with God's heart and purposes. God desires all people to be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth (1 Timothy 2:4), and by participating in soul-winning, we align ourselves with His divine mission. b. Soul-winning is wise because it prioritizes eternal significance over temporal pursuits. In a world consumed by materialism and self-interest, investing in the eternal destiny of souls is the wisest investment we can make. c. Soul-winning is wise because it brings joy and fulfillment beyond measure. There is no greater joy than witnessing the transformation that occurs when someone encounters the love and grace of Jesus Christ. As we participate in soul-winning, we experience the joy of partnering with God in His redemptive work.


As we reflect on the wisdom of soul-winning, let us recommit ourselves to this sacred task with renewed fervor and dedication. Let us heed the call of Jesus to go and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19), knowing that in doing so, we participate in God's kingdom-building work.

May we be wise stewards of the Gospel, faithfully sharing the message of salvation and leading others to Christ. And may our lives be a testament to the transformative power of God's love, drawing others into relationship with Him for eternity.
