All Who Win Souls Are Wise

“Godly men are growing a tree that bears life-giving fruit, and all who win souls are wise.” (Proverbs 11:30)

I have never led anyone to Christ, and I never shall.

However, I have had the privilege of praying with thousands of people who have received Christ as a result of my witness.

When a person receives Christ, it is the work of the Holy Spirit. That is why I cannot boast over much fruit or be discouraged over little fruit. The responsibility for fruit belongs to the Holy Spirit who works in and through the believer, producing fruit and changing the lives of those who respond favorably to our witness.

The power of our Lord Jesus Christ is available to all who trust and obey Him. We need to “understand how incredibly great His power is to help those who believe Him.” The Lord Jesus commissioned the disciples to go into all the world and preach the gospel, with the promise that He would always be with them.

Who do you know who needs to hear the gospel? How can you begin to communicate it to them?

Action Step: Pray for someone in your life who does not yet know Jesus. Ask God for an opportunity to help him or her move one step closer to Jesus.

Resource: Get equipped to share your faith.

    Hi Gabrielle,

    Thank you for your concern. We are in a transition month to the new Life Devotionals (see the picture at the bottom of the devotional) so we are already starting to implement changes. We are moving towards just having one set of devotionals that will be sent to a mixed male and female audience. In the last six days, the ratio between male and female authors has been split 50/50 (3 male and 3 female), and with the official launch of our Life Devotionals next month we actually have woman authors scheduled for 19 of the 30 days. If you are used to receiving devotionals only written by women, then this might come as a surprise. You will still get to read devos written by many of the same female authors, but since we only have about 30 day in a month, each author only publishes one (and sometimes two) devotionals. The sex of our authors is still available for all to see when they click on the authors name and read the bio. The first initial has been used on the devo page so readers are less likely to get distracted from the actual message of encouragement that is in the devo itself.

    I hope this has helped to clarify things. Have a wonderful morning.

    Where are all the usual female writers who contributed to this blog, and why are the writers mostly male now? And why are you trying to hide the sex of the writers by only showing their first initials?
