Message from Pastor Matthew

The Value of Saving One Soul

‘What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?’ (Matthew 16:26).

What is the value of saving one person? I want to answer that question by sharing the beautiful story of how my grandmother was converted at the age of 94.
Before this time, whenever I had tried to share with her about the Lord it would only last a couple of minutes. She wouldn’t ask any questions or show much interest to discuss it. The conversation would soon be changed to another topic. How do we tell these kinds of people that without faith in Jesus they are missing the most important thing? How do we tell a nice person that they are a lost sinner?
My father had been praying for the conversion of his mother from when he was saved, 45 years earlier. His prayer was that the Lord would not take her from this earth until she was ready to go. What happened in the end was a great miracle and a wonderful victory for our family.
I hope today’s message will encourage you to persevere in sharing your faith with others. Don’t give up in believing God for the salvation of your friends, relatives and work mates, etc. Seek God for ways to breakthrough. The salvation of even one soul is worth it.
God bless you as you live for Jesus.
