“…greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends…” John 15:13 (NIV)

One of the major lessons our Lord Jesus Christ taught us through His death, burial and resurrection is how to walk in love. He was a man who knew no sin but was made sin because of all of us (2 Corinthians 5:21). He committed no wrong but yet He laid down His life for you and me that we might have life and have it more abundantly. The life that He is supposed to live, He sacrificed it so that we can escape eternal damnation. He paid the ultimate price for you and me because He loved us too much to let us perish eternally. Now, the sacrifice has been offered and salvation is now possible. But you see, if others are going to know about the message of the Gospel and receive salvation, we must love them enough to tell them about the message of the Gospel. We must be willing to go beyond our comfort zone to get the message across to them and bring them into the knowledge of the truth. It is called soul winning. When we go all out to make the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ known to others, what we are doing is walking in love. We are demonstrating the same kind of love God revealed to us when He sent Jesus Christ to pay the price for us. Therefore, it is important that you engage in this exercise regularly.

Every opportunity you have to share the good news with somebody or sow a seed of the good news into any one’s life must be taken seriously because it increases your fruits of righteousness and gives others the opportunity to escape eternal damnation. Remember without you, there are people who might never be able to hear this Gospel in your catchment area. Therefore, play your role for it is written “…how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them? And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent?” Romans 10:14-15 (NLT) Did you see that? Someone has to be sent and that man is you. So walk in love today and share the good news of the Gospel with the people in your school, your workplace and all around you. Anywhere you find yourself, is an opportunity to share the good news. It is the life Jesus Christ brought to us and it is a life worth living. Praise God!


Salvation is the highest gift you can offer a man, therefore win a soul, it a sign of love!


I have been saved to save someone else, therefore, I choose to lay down my life, make the required sacrifices to get someone to Christ. And as I do this my efforts are yielding fruits and bringing many to our Lord Jesus Christ. Praise God!
