We can all become better at recahing out to others. One simple key is the principle of focus!
REFOCUS REGULARLY TO GOD`S BURNING DESIRE
*What is God`s Burning Desire?
God`s burning desire is to see people come to repentance and into relationship with Him. His burning desire is to see people saved. If we contemplate the agony that Jesus went through on the cross, we must conclude that this event was for some very special purpose, why else would one endure such suffering when all along he could have got off that cross? For the Father to send His son in such a manner is an outright display that God`s burning desire is the salvation of mankind.
Whatever we seem to focus on in life is what we seem to get. For instance if I focus my thoughts on saving money for a whole month, I am more likely to spend less during that time and I actually will end up with a little extra that month. It is the same with soul winning. If I refocus my life regularly to God`s burning desire, I am more likely to be about that in my life.
*How Can I Refocus My Life?
a) Pray Out Key Scriptures Daily
The word of God makes God`s burning desire clear. 2 Peter 3:9, Romans 10:13, John 3:16. Pray out these scriptures daily and soon your heart will become very focused.
b) Ponder The Purpose of Christ.
The other week I was sitting at home and felt the Lord ask me a question. `Tina what is it all about?` As I sat and thought I began to ponder, to think about why Jesus died. I concluded that the purpose of Christ was and is the salvation of men and women. As I pondered this purpose I began to realign, to make more room in my life to be about this purpose. I encourage you also to take time regularly to ponder and realign your life.
c) Have a Motivational Statement
Often we are pumped up and motivate after reading a great motivational statement. In my house there is a great statement that I have. Often I read it out loud and remind myself of the great importance of soul winning. It keeps me pumped.
**Here Is The Statement I like:
` I would rather win souls than be the greatest king or emperor on earth, I would rather win souls than be the greatest poet or novelist, or literary man who ever walked the earth. May one ambition in life is to win as many as possible. Oh, it is the one thing worth doing, to save souls, and men and women we can all do it.`(RA Torrey).
How about you try it out, make a nice little poster for yourself and stick it up on your wall.
The above are three simple ways to refocus your life to God`s Burning desire. They will help you in becoming a great soul winner.
