Vital signs- Tuesday, August 31st, 2021


Every Christian has been given the assignment to take the gospel to the lost. When we have a real burden and passion for that mission, it is certain that we will see results. The great evangelist D. L. Moody was led to Christ as a teenager by his Sunday school teacher. The teacher was burdened for his lost pupil and went to visit him where he worked in a shoe store.

Moody later told the story of his conversion this way: “When I was in Boston I used to attend a Sunday school class, and one day I recollect my teacher came around behind the counter of the shop I was at work in, and put his hand upon my shoulder, and talked to me about Christ and my soul. I had not felt that I had a soul till then. I said to myself, ‘This is a very strange thing. Here is a man who never saw me till lately, and he is weeping over my sins, and I never shed a tear about them.’ But I understand it now, and I know what it is to have a passion for men's souls and weep over their sins. I don't remember what he said, but I can still feel the power of that man's hand on my shoulder tonight.”

The concern and tears of a godly teacher resulted in the conversion of a man who saw a million souls saved in his evangelistic campaigns. What a wonderful result! We never know when we witness to someone how God can use that life to build His Kingdom. It is our responsibility to sow the precious seed with a burdened and compassionate heart, then trust in God’s promise that we will see an abundant harvest.


Ask God to give you a genuine burden for reaching the lost.


“Those who plant in tears will harvest with shouts of joy. They weep as they go to plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the harvest.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭126:5-6‬ ‭NLT‬‬
