Reading: John 4:8-26

"Those who turn many to righteousness will shine like stars forever"

(Dan 12:3)


 

The Rt. Rev. Samuel Vedanayagam Azariah (1874-1945) was one of the pioneers of Indian missionary movement and the Founder of the first two missionary societies of India of the last century, namely Indian Missionary Society and National Missionary Society. His most favourite Bible text was: "Though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to boast of, for necessity is laid upon me; yes, woe is me if I preach not the Gospel!" (1 Cor 9:16). It is said that Bishop Azariah would urge his congregational members to keep their hands on their heads and shout this text aloud!

As one involved in missions, it is my painful observation that the number of supporters of missionary work is increasing without an increase in the number of personal soulwinners. Supporters are necessary, but think of a Church hall full of only pillars! Both pastors and mission leaders are responsible for this condition.

Missions are mushrooming and missionaries are multiplying. This is good, but the entire country cannot be evangelised until every Christian becomes a soulwinner. This was the secret of success of the mission of the early Church. Thank God for the several crusade evangelists He has raised in India these days. Christians should gather around them to help in their crusades and programmes. But the evangelist fails in his calling if he fails to scatter his supporters into the streets to go out-where-the-sinners-are for personal witnessing. Jesus the Evangelist made His followers fishers of men (Mt 4:19). "And He... gave some to be... evangelists... for the equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry" (Eph 4:11,12). The ministry of every minister is to make every believer a minister!

In my early twenties, I was attending a "spiritual" church regularly for nearly two years; but I do not remember to have ever heard the pastor challenging us even once for soulwinning. There were no training classes for soulwinners and he never recommended a work-study book on soulwinning.

God continues to be calling, "Whom shall I send and who will go for Us?" (Isa 6:8). Christ laments, "The harvest truly is great but the labourers are few" (Lk 10:2). Dear user of this Daily Devotional, if you know the joy of personal soulwinning you will never exchange it for anything. Speak to atleast one person today about Christ and see for yourself!
