Today’s Passage – Daniel 10 – 12 (Click on the references to listen to the audio – click here to view the text from the Blue Letter Bible website)

(Second Milers also read – Hebrews 9 – 13; Psalms 86 – 90; Proverbs 18)

Listen to this morning’s Scripture song – Isaiah 40:31

Read the “0918 Evening and Morning“ devotion for today, by the late Charles Haddon Spurgeon.

“And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.” – (Daniel 12:3)

“The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.” – (Proverbs 11:30)

Several years ago I received a text message from a very excited member of our church. She had taken a trip down to North Carolina to visit with her father who was very sick. She was concerned about her father’s physical health, but she was even more concerned about his spiritual condition. This young lady had never lead anyone to Christ before and she was very apprehensive, but because she had such a love and burden for her dad, she boldly shared Christ with him. Praise the Lord! Her father was gloriously saved. I do not know that in the future she will go on to “turn many to righteousness”, or not; but I do know that she was shining like a star the day she was used of the Lord to win her father.

I don’t know about you, but that story encourages me to be a better soul winner. I want to share Christ with the world around me. There was a time in my life when I was overflowing with the gospel: I witnessed to everybody. But, to my shame, somewhere along the way, I lost some of that zeal. I want it back.

Awesome! I’m sure she was shining like a star at that time and it was an amazing day for her knowing her father was going to be with our Heavenly Father if he passed on! I feel the same way as you do, over the years life beat me up here and there which really affected the zeal I once had to! I need to start working more to get it back, I miss that glowing look on my face!

Amen Pastor. There is a old saying if you don’t use it you will lose it.It is so important for us as Christians to take the gospel into this dying world.When we we’re first saved most of us we’re on fire for the Lord ,then all of a sudden the fire goes out because if you don’t use it you will lose it, another words you start easing out of the habit of witnessing for the Lord as time goes on.As Christians we need to jump start our soul winning habit. if you are not doing so now. Like the post .
