“And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room.”
“And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.”
We understand from scriptures that winning the lost to Christ is a scriptural instruction to all believers Mk. 16:15-16. But winning the lost is not the complete instruction; the converts must abide in the faith by becoming established in the church Jn. 15:16. In essence, ingathering of souls is not just an ambitious drive to have a bigger congregation, but obedience to the commandment of scriptures Lk. 14:21-23. Remember, every instruction of scriptures is for the profit of the believer when obeyed 2Tim. 3:16-17. What benefit is there in gathering souls into the church?
Profits of Ingathering of souls to the church.
Sanctification means to be set apart from whatever defiles unto God alone 2Cor. 6:17-18. The scriptures present this as a demand for all believers Jn. 17:19. How does this and ingathering to church inter-relate?
All of these show that ingathering of new converts to church is a must for them to become established in the faith and God.
Jesus is Lord!
Father in the name of Jesus, empower me by your Spirit for the ingathering of all my converts and contacts into the church until they are established Zch. 4:6.
