YOUR RELEVANCE IN THE GOSPEL;
And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work: (As it is written, He hath dispersed abroad; he hath given to the poor: his righteousness remaineth for ever (2 Corinthians 9:8-9).
Your relevance to the spread of the Gospel of Christ is one of the major reasons God channels prosperity your way. The Bible says there’s more joy in heaven over a sinner that repents than over ninety-nine saints that need no repentance (Luke 15:7). This is about the only time we’re informed in Scripture of something that causes rejoicing amongst the angels in heaven: soul-winning. This lets you know how important soul-winning is.
Winning souls into God’s Kingdom must be the compelling motive in everything you do. As an entrepreneur, a politician, a teacher, a banker, a business executive, a student, etc., as long as your personal drive and motivation is the expansion of God’s Kingdom, you’ll live a meaningful and fulfilled life. Your involvement in soul-winning attracts more grace and prosperity to your life. It causes the wisdom of God to function in you in an unusual way.
Furthermore, the Lord sees to your protection when you’re relevant in taking the Gospel to the nations of the earth. Our opening verse says God is able to make all grace abound towards you, such that having all sufficiency in all things, you’ll abound to every good work. When you’re involved in the spread of the Gospel, the grace of God is increased in your life to achieve more. James 4:6 says, “He giveth more grace…” So don’t relent at any opportunity to promote the Gospel.
