Today’s Scripture: And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever. Daniel 12:3

Have you ever wished you had some of the abilities of an angel? In Scripture, we are given some limited information about angels. Gabriel is a messenger. Michael is an archangel who fights for his people.

Did you know that believers have a ministry that the angels cannot participate in? We have been put in trust with the responsibility of sharing the good news of the Gospel of grace. If we don’t tell others, who will?

Today’s Scripture is a reminder that if we want to be wise, we will be winning souls. It says that soul winners will shine brightly forever. Think about that – we can’t take wealth or possessions into eternity, but we can take souls. The souls that we win will be eternal evidence of our love for the Savior and for others. They will be eternal tangible proof of a life lived for the Lord.

All the actions in our life, the things we allow to consume our time, will bear fruit of some sort. Some of it will fade, some will wither away. Proverbs 11:30 describes souls that have been won for the Lord as the soul winner’s fruit.  Only what we do for the Lord will last eternally, and the easiest way to get started is to get out and win souls.
