Expect a Harvest

Jerry Ferrso

What do you expect when you give a Gospel tract? Rejection? Indifference? How would our soulwinning approach change if we actually expected someone to get saved that day? Paul said, “Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved” (Romans 10:1). His heart’s desire was not just to leave an open invitation; Paul’s desire was to see Christ save them. Believing God will use you to lead someone to Christ is not the power of positive thinking. It is faith.

We work to sow a lot of seed. We print tracts, send mailers, and broadcast radio programs and internet podcasts. But all of these efforts are means to cultivate the ground so that we might tell the Gospel to receptive hearts. Someone out there is ready to receive Christ. Will you pray that you will be the one to lead him to Christ?
