As many of you said, what is the point of doing the Work of God on the Altar, without the desire of saving souls, if this is our drive once we are born of God and wish to serve on the Altar?
All those who are born of God, have this burning desire inside of them of winning souls. It's impossible to truly experiment what salvation and who God is and want to keep it all for ourselves. We want pass it on to all those we know and even to those we don't know! We can't help it, it's a strong desire that moves (action) us to reach out to all those who are lost.
If we think about what Jesus did when He was here on earth, we can clearly see His main concern was the souls.
There is a passage in the Bible that I find so wonderful and so deep... One day Jesus asked Peter if he loved Him. Peter did not hesitate but immediately replied yes!! Let's see what Jesus replied to Him?
"So when they had eaten breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me more than these?”He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.” He said to him, “Feed My lambs.” John 21: 15
If you keep reading this passage you will see that Jesus asks him 2 more times the same question, and His answer to Peter was all regarding the souls. Showing to us that even to prove our love for Jesus we must dedicate our lives for the souls, we continue God's dream of having us as His children!
And another important reason why the love for souls is so important when doing the Work of God, it's because if there is one thing in common in all places we are sent to serve on the Altar will be: souls!
The country or the city you are sent may be very hot or extremely cold, it may be rich or it may be poor, it may be far or close from your homeland, it can be very different in many aspects from other places you've been before, but one thing is for sure: there will always be souls in need of help there.
If we keep our focus on the souls we will always be happy and we will remain in the Work of God forever, because souls will be what will always surround us, regardless of the circumstances.
When people lose this focus on the souls, they begin to get cold in their faith, thinking more about their own businesses and in turn end up leaving the Work of God... So sad, but it's been the reality of many.
Souls are everywhere. If you are a true servant for the Altar, you will be able not only to see that, but your mind, your thoughts and your objectives will be around souls.
Are you ready to make the souls a priority in your life - obviously, after your own soul?
GREAT! But that's not all...
