“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.”
The scriptures make us to understand that when purpose is not known or well understood, people will become victims of misdirection and frustration Pro. 29:18. I think this is the challenge with believers today; lack of understanding of the fundamental purpose of faith in God. Every believer is called and ordained to be a soul winner and to ensure that the souls won to God abide in the faith Jn. 15:16. In essence, we are not only to get the unsaved to make a commitment to Christ, but to see that they are established in the lifestyle of Christ. This is why it becomes necessary to get them into and committed in the church.
Profits of Ingathering of souls to the church.
Just as in natural farm work, the effort of the farmer is ultimately in getting the farm produce to the house for consumption or the storehouse for financial profit. Without this, the farmer stands the risk of losing every effort made. The same applies in the kingdom, and our storehouse is the church 1Ths. 3:5; Mal. 3:10.
The truth is, no believer will experience glory without a commitment to ingathering of souls into the church. And Christianity without glory is highly frustrating.
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.
