Our soul winning passage from the Word of God today is Philemon 1:6 which reads: "That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus."
Allow me to share with you some important insights regarding this Scripture from David Guzik's Commentaries on the Bible:
Paul prayed for Philemon, desiring that the sharing of his faith would become effective as Philemon understood the work God did in him (every good thing which is in you).
This is the foundation for all effective evangelism: the overflow of a life touched and changed by God. God had done every good thing in the life of Philemon. Now, it was a matter of it being acknowledged by both Philemon and those he shared the faith with. When these good things were understood, others would come to Jesus. The reason why some sharing of the faith is not effective is because we don’t know or can’t communicate every good thing God has done for us.
Our soul winning quote today is from Karl Menninger. He said: "Listening is a magnetic and strange thing, a creative force. The friends who listen to us are the ones we move toward. When we are listened to, it creates us, makes us unfold and expand."
