A Love For Souls!

This is an exert from "How To Bring Men To Christ" by R. A. Torrey:

But how is one to get a love for souls? This question is easily answered. First of all a love for souls like very other grace of Chris- tian character is the work  of the Holy Spirit. If then we are conscious that we do not have that love for souls that we should have, the first thing to do is to go to God and humbly confess this lack in our lives and ask Him by His Hol y Spirit to supply that which we so sorely need and expect Him to do it (i. Jno. V. 14, I5i Phil. iv. 19). In the second place Jesus Christ had an intense love tor souls (Matt, xsiii. 37; Luke xix. 10), and intimate and constant companionship with Him will impart to our lives this grace hich was so prominent in His. In the third place feelings are the outcome of thoughts. If we desire any given feeling in our lives we should dwell upon the thoughts which are adapted to produce that feeling. If any saved person will dwell upon the peril  and wretchedness of any man out of Christ and the worth of his soul in God's sight as seen in the death of God's Son to save him, a feeling of intense desire for that man's salvation is almost certain to follow. In the fourth place, reflection upon our own ruined and unhappy condition without Christ and the great sacrifice that Christ made to save us, is sure to fill our hearts with a desire to bring others to the Saviour that we have found.

May The Lord Be With You! Saturday Witnessing

I heard that tomorrow is Star War's Day, so I gave out a few Star War's millions from Gospel Tract Planet. Chris took one at Ross. We went to Petco to get an item for our new puppy that we are getting tomorrow. Quinn and Dravin, two employees, took one there. At Walmart, a man who was asking for money at the front took one. He said that he was saved, but I think he was using that as part of his presentation. Several others took them inside and out in the parking lot. 

So many need the Gospel! The hour is urgent! Let's pray for workers for the harvest and the fields of the harvest! May The Lord be with you! 

Here is how the back of the tract reads:

Have you ever tested your "Dark Side?" Everyone has a Dark Side, but most people have no idea how dark it is. Let's take a look at yours... Have you ever lied, stolen (regardless of value), or looked with lust? Jesus said "whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart." Guilt results in an eternal Hell because God is Holy. 

Imagine a man in a courtroom; a criminal guilty of serious crimes. He is tried, convicted, and sentenced to life or a fine of a MILLION DOLLARS. when the judge steps down and pays his fine! Even though he's still guilty, his fine has been paid and justice has been satisfied! The judge was both merciful and just. This is what Jesus did for sinners. While fully God and fully man, Jesus lived a sinless life. In love He took the wrath of God and penalty for sin on Himself on the Cross. Then He rose from the grave, showing the penalty paid. 

What should you do? God commands you to repent and trust in Jesus ALONE. Don't trust in "good works." Cry out to God for mercy and put your faith in Jesus, confessing and forsaking sins. God will change your heart so you will desire Holiness. Make peace with God today; you may not have tomorrow. Eternity is worth much more than a MILLION DOLLARS!
